The Tesla Model S P100D has smashed another record with a blistering 10.76 second quarter-mile

Model S P100D
When we talk about how fast Tesla's are, we tend to focus on how fast Tesla's vehicles can go from 0-60. The recently released Tesla Model S P100D, for example, is an absolute rocket and can go from 0-60 in 2.5 seconds flat. Understandably proud, Tesla CEO Elon Musk appropriately calls the Model S P100D the fastest production car in the world. But here's the thing: nobody in the real world really lives in a universe where 0-60 time even matters. And yet, we're still overly concerned with 0-60 times as if getting up to that speed in 2.5 seconds as opposed to 3 seconds is all that important or significant. Even the brilliant Vin Diesel eschews the 0-60 metric and instead chooses to live his life a quarter mile at a time. Sure, the quarter mile time is just as pointless as 0-60, but in the interest of spicing things up a bit, the enterprising folks over at DragTimes were up to their old tricks again this weekend when they took a Tesla Model S P100D on a record-setting quarter-mile run.

Tesla Model S sales are not nearly as impressive they seem, report claims

Tesla Model S Sales
One of the more commonly held assumptions about Tesla is that the Model S absolutely owns the U.S. market for large luxury sedans. As we highlighted just last week, recently tabulated data revealed that the Model S moved an estimated 9,156 units last quarter, easily trouncing the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and BMW's 7-Series which each moved 4,921 and 3,634 units, respectively.

Tesla’s Model S P100D is always insanely fast, even in the rain

Tesla Model S P100D
We've long known that Tesla knows how to manufacture incredibly fast cars with jaw-dropping acceleration, but the company really outdid itself when it introduced the P100D this past August. As if the Model S P90D weren't fast enough already, Tesla's new top of the line Model S can now blast from 0-60 MPH in just 2.5 seconds in Ludicrious Mode. What's more, the car can go from 0-100 in 6.5 seconds and can complete a quarter-mile in 10.7 seconds flat.

LAPD may roll out a Tesla Model S police car as soon as 2017

Tesla Model S Police Cars
A few months ago, we reported that the Los Angeles Police Department was contemplating adding a few Tesla Model S vehicles to their fleet. With Tesla loaning the LAPD two Model S P85D vehicles for evaluation, LAPD Police Administrator Vartan Yegiyan explained that the underlying goal was to determine how the luxury sedan would perform in a city environment and to ascertain any benefits and drawbacks it would introduce as an everyday patrol car. What's more, the LAPD also indicated that they were evaluating the Tesla Model S' capabilities as a high-pursuit vehicle, altogether not terribly surprising the Model S' reputation for speed.

Tesla still trouncing the competition in the U.S. luxury sedan market

Tesla Model S Sales
For as much as we talk established companies like Porsche and BMW going after Tesla in the EV market, it's important not to overlook the fact that Tesla's Model S continues to dominate the U.S. luxury sedan market on the whole. With Tesla Model S sales on the rise, and having increased by nearly 60% year over year, the Model S during Q3 of 2016 was more than 4 times as popular as the BMW 7-Series.

Watch Tesla’s blazing fast Model S P100D race a Lamborghini Huracan

Tesla Model S P100D
Last month, Tesla wowed the automotive world when it unveiled a new Model S with a 100kWh battery option. With the new P100D option, Tesla's top of the line Model S is an absolute beast and can go from o-60 MPH in just 2.5 seconds in Ludicrous Mode. As Tesla CEO Elon Musk apprpriately boasted, the P100D is the fastest production car on the planet. With Model S P100D deliveries now underway, we're already seeing videos showcasing what Tesla's latest speed demon can do out on the road. During a brief performance review, DragTimes last week confirmed the car's incredible 0-60 time while also observing that it can go from 0-100 in 6.5 seconds flat and is capable of completing a quarter-mile in a blazing fast 10.7 seconds.

Will.i.am’s Telsa Model S mod is the actual definition of Ludicrous

Tesla Model S Mod
Will.i.am of The Black Eyed Peas is a jack of all trades. Aside from his many music related ventures, the popular recording artist has a knack for showing up everywhere and, over the past few years, has dabbled in acting, fashion, smartphones and an array of other varied ventures. You might even remember, for example, that the singer back in 2014 released a widely derided smartwatch that many quickly proclaimed was the worst tech gadget of the year. While such a failure might have ruined lesser men, it’s hard to keep Will.i.am down. After all, with an estimated net worth of $75 million, Will.i.am is certainly capable of handling a few business missteps here and there.

Two Model S cars were stolen despite Tesla’s advanced tech

Tesla Model S Stolen
You’d have thought that nobody can steal your Tesla thanks to its advanced tracking system. Thieves foolish enough to try to get away with it could be easily caught with the help of the on-board GPS. However, that’s not really the case. Tesla cars are incredibly valuable, which means thieves will do whatever it takes to grab one and leave no traces behind. In fact, at least two such thefts have already been reported in Europe.

Tesla Model S driver blames buggy Autopilot software for highway crash

Tesla Model S Crash
A Model S driver in China who recently got into a minor fender bender is laying blame for the incident squarely on Tesla’s Autopilot software. In a video uploaded to Weibo this week, we see dashcam footage of a Model S cruising down a highway whereupon it just barely scrapes by a presumably broken down car sitting partially on the shoulder and partially on the highway itself. The incident occurred on a Beijing highway and the driver posted both video footage of the incident along with photos of the aftermath. The impact doesn’t appear to be terribly significant, but the photos reveal that more damage was done than suggested by the video.

Video showcases Tesla’s Autopilot software preventing an accident

Tesla Model S
Tesla’s Autopilot software has been in the news quite a bit lately, albeit for all the wrong reasons. When word broke that a Model S with Autopilot engaged was involved in a fatal accident this past May, pundits were quick to proclaim that Tesla’s software was not yet ready for primetime. Not helping matters were subsequent crashes involving Tesla vehicles which only fueled more pessimism and concern surrounding the company’s Autopilot software.
