1100 HP Widebody Tesla Model S Plaid RIPS Around the Nurburgring and it’s Faster Than Most of Your Favorite Cars

One of the main questions that we, the performance community, have about the future of motoring is if it will be exciting. Since our crystal ball is currently in the repair shop, we can’t say for sure what all of the details are going to look like. However, it does look like brands like Tesla are making a push to at least make some more interesting options.

Seriously, if you can’t get at least a little bit excited about the Tesla Model S Plaid, a 1,100hp sedan, we’re not sure what to tell you.

With a Model S plaid, Tesla comes out with a familiar yet new combination that is going to be insane on the performance side of things. In fact, the car was able to produce an unofficial Nurburgring time of 7 minutes, 13 seconds. Currently, that would make it 23rd fastest among street legal vehicle laps. If made official, the lap time would place it above competitors like the Porsche 911 Turbo S, Camaro ZL1 1LE, every Nissan GT-R ever made, and a variety of Corvettes including the highly regarded C7 Z06 and C6 ZR1.

The car right above the 7:13 clip – a Porsche 911 GT3 that managed a 7:12.7.

Of course, the car isn’t going to produce the grumble of an internal combustion engine that we’re used to. However, the performance is pretty hard to deny. In fact, as electric cars are only in their infancy, this performance is only going to be the start of the game as things will most definitely escalate in a favorable direction as time marches forward.

Let’s also not forget that this is a sedan fit to haul the entire family.

This time, we check in with the video that claims to have captured the 1100 hp Tesla Model S plaid out and about testing at the Nurburgring. Since then, the details on this monster have been confirmed. However, it has not yet been released for public consumption just yet.

Down in the video below, though, we’re able to tune in with the beast of a machine that could spell out the future of performance. Are there going to be some big changes that we will have to get used to the future? Perhaps. Could we potentially see a much more awesome version of performance machines that we know today? That remains to be seen but it certainly looks possible.
