Tesla’s are fast, especially for large, roomy sedans and crossovers. While many motorsport enthusiasts are looking to the upcoming Tesla Roadster for blazing performance, the Tesla Model S Performance edition has held court on the road for quite some time. And now, Tesla is raising the bar even further with the upcoming Tesla Model S Plaid.

The already available Tesla Model S Performance can hit 60 miles per hour in about 2.4 seconds, faster than many conventionally powered hyper cars. The Tesla Model S Plaid promises to be even faster, hitting 60 miles per hour in less than 2 seconds. To put that in perspective, that matches the speed of many of the fastest sports bikes available and will leave many Ferraris in the dust.

How does the Model S Plaid manage to up the speed and performance? While the performance Model S puts out a more than respectable 785 horsepower and 713 ib-ft of torque, the Plaid edition increases output even more. In fact, the Model S Plaid is projected to put out 1100 horsepower or more. Torque isn’t available yet but expect an increase in line with the horsepower bump.

The Model S Plaid will have 3 electric engines, with expected dual rear engines for maximum acceleration off the line. It should also have an electric range in excess of 500 miles per charge.

You can pre-order your Tesla Model S Plaid right now. Prices start at $139,990. However, delivery isn’t expected until the end of 2021 or later.
