Tesla P85D thoughts

Basically, a dual motor version of the tesla that can, at the high end, accelerate from 0-60 in 3.2 seconds.

A lot of promises also around autopilot and active safety features. I love the idea but I’m skeptical this is going to be as good as whatever Google has been doing.

Also, I have to remind folks that acceleration alone does not make a superstar. Take a Tesla on the track and it will go into limp mode after two laps. The Tesla also isn’t going to trap the quarter mile or half nearly as quickly as a traditional supercar. It’s fun in relatively controlled street environments, and there isn’t anything wrong with that. But there’s just way more to building a high performance car and charging the concomitant prices.

But that’s OK. Just looking to see the autonomous features match the hype.
