Today is all about the beautiful, powerful, and downright insane Tesla Model S P85D. The video above demonstrates the insane mode acceleration and autopilot of the Tesla Model S P85D, and it’s fascinating to observe. That autopilot! Genius piece of software.
In case you don’t fully comprehend how fast 0 – 60 mph in 3.2 seconds is, check out this hilarious Tesla P85D insane mode launch reactions compilation video. I love the reactions! Describing it as a roller coaster, or just plain insane, is the norm, and it’s wonderful.
Further to these two great demonstration videos, the car itself is a game changer. Car Magazine has an article describing 5 reasons why the Tesla Model S changes everything, and it’s worth a read. Gizmodo drove all the way from London to Amsterdam and back using only superchargers, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. To learn more about the “Insane” mode, head over to Motor Trend. Despite this speed, the Tesla Model S has achieved the maximum-possible 5-star safety rating from the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP). So not only is it insane, it’s super safe as well. These factors have led to a huge growth in the company, and so they needed to expand their current factory to cope with demand. The blog post detailing this upgrade is fascinating to read, and provides greater insight into the company and the production of the Tesla cars.
I want one. I really really want one. Onwards!
