Tesla Model S P100D Gets Faster (0-60 In 2.4s) After Software Update

Tesla Model S and Model X P100D

Back in August, Tesla introduced the Model S P100D with Ludicrous mode, which holds the distinction of being the quickest production car in the world, accelerating from 0-60mph in just 2.5 seconds!

But in a recent tweet, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that a software update coming next month would shave some time off of the P100D’s already impressive 0-60 and 1/4 mile times:

Wow, that’s quite the Easter egg! And that’s the great thing about Tesla’s, thanks to these software updates, you can go to sleep one night with a normal car, and wake up the next morning to find out your car is now self-driving. How cool is that?!

As for those new performance numbers, those are RIDICULOUSLY fast, especially for a four-door sedan that can haul five passengers. The fastest I’ve ever done is 0-60 in 2.9s in a 2015 Porsche Turbo S, and I felt like my eyeballs were going to melt. So I can only imagine what this must be like!

Tesla Model X P100D owners will be getting a similar boost, with Musk tweeting that it would be shaving 0.1 seconds off of its 2.9-second 0-60 MPH time. Crazy..
