Tesla was at the Nürburgring for wool and came out, in part, sheared . The role of the american manufacturer of electrical in the circuit of the world's most ambitious, field usual speed tests for different releases of models, was bittersweet: on the one hand, a version of the pre-production of the Model S more powerful beat unofficially to the standard version of the new Porsche Taycan. On the other, their images later uploaded to a crane have been received with derision in social networking.
The unit that traveled through the Green Hell German, called Plaid and that will be the butt-end of the sedan from next year -thanks to a configuration of three engines, (one more than the Performance), more power and better chassis and aerodynamics - got a time of 7 minutes and 23 seconds, timed unofficially by a journalist from the German publication Auto Motor und Sport. Still do not know the joint power of its thrusters, but could be around 1000 HP.
quite an achievement marquetiniano for a manufacturer to youth that fought "at home" to a seated constructor of sports. However, it was washed subsequently by images that showed the model standing and, subsequently, picked up by a crane. While I had to be picked up by a tow truck the result of a malfunction, the unknown, was advance comfortably through various prototypes and production models, including a Taycan, according to a video uploaded to YouTube.
Despite the setback, Tesla, which ensures that the Model S Plaid can tour the Nürburgring in just , 7 minutes and 20 seconds , do not give up, and claims on Twitter that he will perform tests in October, which wants to reduce the mark up to just 7 minutes and 5 seconds.
