Tesla Model S breaks the 200 barrier, as well as getting close to breaking the .200 cD barrier

https://www.forbes.com/wheels/news/t...tesla-model-s/

1,020 horsepower,
200 MPH
O-60 in 1.99 seconds
1/4 trap speed of 155 mph
520 miles of range
.208 drag coefficient

It's great to see the EV future has arrived - even if I can't even afford it.

Indeed, this clip of the Simpsons' can (thankfully ) be looked back on and laughed at as a memory of past EVs.

Can't help but laugh that California residents can still get $1500 off the price of a $140k throwaway car.

Road car wise, no.

Race car wise: Cobra Jet.

Considering what that car is and what this car isn't that a very impressive comparison.
