And now for the bit you’ve been waiting for: the 1,000+ hp Model S Plaid is set to travel to the Nurburgring in search of a sub-seven-minute lap time. Considering that Musk says the car can do 0-60 mph in 1.96 seconds, acceleration certainly won’t be an issue. “Every millisecond really matters when you’re going that fast”, said Musk. With early prototypes of the Plaid and a handheld stopwatch, Tesla managed a time of 7:13. Musk continues: “We’re trying to get to, on the Nurburgring, get to the low-7-minute mark. And then, with further improvements, I think we could bust 7 minutes on the Nurburgring, which would be a pretty wicked act on its own.” It sure would be and would make the Model S Plaid even more of a bargain considering its existing performance credentials.
