This past May, Tesla posted a customer story on its website detailing a harrowing crash involving a Model S and a massive tractor-trailer carrying two jet engines. Posted by Michelle Scott, the story details how her husband Bill was driving his Model S before getting rear-ended, ultimately sending him flying into said tractor before spinning into an SUV that was travelling ahead of him.

Watch a Tesla Model S P100D set a new world record for a quarter-mile run

Tesla Model S Speed

When Tesla unveiled the Model S P100D this past August, Elon Musk boasted that it was the fastest production car in the world. Deservedly so, Tesla's flagship Model S was capable of going from 0-60 MPH in just 2.5 seconds flat and completing a quarter mile at around 10.78 seconds.

Tesla quietly released the longest-range electric car in the world

Tesla Model S vs Model X

In the tech industry, it's common practice to send out an embargoed press release when releasing anything more exciting than a bug fix. But in Tesla's world, things work a little different.

Early Friday morning, Tesla updated its website to add the Model S 100D, the extended-range version of the new P100D and now the longest-range EV in the world. In typical secretive Tesla fashion, the news didn't get so much as one single Tweet.

Tesla Model S owner gets stranded in the desert for the craziest of reasons

Tesla Model S

In a bizarre story that gently reminds us that too much technology can sometimes be a bad thing, a Tesla Model S owner named Ryan Negri recently found himself stranded in the Nevada desert after deciding to leave his key fob at home. In its place, Negri brought along his trusty iPhone which can just as easily start the car via Tesla's Keyless Driving feature.

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.

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.
