Gb definitely does not like T or the article posts..it jibes with their "all is peachy keen in fossilfuelsville, our industry is above reproach" slant. J1

that loss to the Lambo might have something to do with this 'small print' I lifted from the Tesla site

** The P85D top speed is currently electronically-limited to 130 mph. In the coming months, we will be able to upgrade the car free of charge to enable a 155 mph top speed. This free update will be available for the lifetime of the car (not limited to the first owner). Additionally, an over-the-air firmware upgrade to the power electronics will improve P85D performance at high speed above what anyone outside Tesla has experienced to date. In other words, the car will be better than you experienced. This free upgrade will be rolled out in the next few months, once full validation is complete.

here's the rub jim.. a tesla is NOT a lambo... or a porsche or a corvette.. really.. it should be running against Bentley's.. the fact that it can even slightly hold it own against one of the fastest ICE's made is the msot amazing thing out there.. not that the Lambo won.. who'd thought it would lose?? It goes like 220 MPH right? Ev's will do it soon buddy... 5 years or less..

look out bud... another whooper coming... looks like you get the worst of this ext storm.. but who knows?? more rain here.. geez.. we're starting to gather wood for the ark... but there's more plastic lying around than anything.. can we build something that will float out of that?? I lifted a lambo beating a tesla 85SD on a dragger.. the tesla is 900 lbs heavier but is rated the smae HP.. the dude driving the lambo is a pro.. he red-lines and shifts like a wheel man...

they took this down because "it's not from a real newspaper source" but it sure as heck makes a 700Hp ICE hellcat look plain silly and just terrible...

hey jim... howz it goin'?.. yup.. snow piling up on the panels.. this month not quite even to last months dull harvest...how about that $2 a gallon gas?.. I'm driving the 21 mpg SC-ed TL-S at will with the super being at $2.049 locally... with Bj new card.. they take 10 cents off p/gal right @ the pump.. I am using that against my 5% discount w/discover or 3% w/sychony.. %5 on $2 a gal isn't 10 cents though.. drill posted a tesla kicking a hellcats but on the drag strip t.. several times... next a vette, caamaro, and porche.. all will lose.. nothing can eat the torque curve of an EV cause there isn't a curve... just straight torque from the first press of the pedal... ICE folks just don't get it... so go fill 'er up to them.. I wanna plug in!!!
