Tesla multiplied the final reduction for the torque, which no one else in the industry does.

Granted, EVs have a single gear, but multiplying the crank torque by the differential ratio is still cheating.

was this built just for flat out acceleration like a modern Bugatti or do they actually hope to make it a track toy like a GT3 and won't go into limp mode after 1.5 laps?

If it's going to hit 250mph hopefully the bumpers stay on these ones.

What's the deposit on this one? Let's see ... $2500 for a projected $35K car. By that formula, please send Elon an interest free loan of $18K deposit if you want one of these Roadster. Truckloads of people scream ... 'Please Elon, take my money'. Damn, this swindler is good!

I didn't know this. What do you think the real torque number should be.

Musk is likely out as CEO and chairman of the board by 2020 if not way earlier.

I have my doubts about that 1.9s 0-60 time. I'm interested to see what kind of tires they come with. A lot of big HP cars are in that 2.0-2.5s 0-60 not because of a lack in HP/TQ. It's the tires that are holding them back.

That’s insane. Aero is is just to make up for a bad design in the first place

Kind of serious. If it’s not making lift at speed it doesn’t need the downforce... unless you want to corner like a supercar. Lol

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but wanted to clarify a couple things!

The NHTSA test is very easy to do well in - 5 stars (with occasional 4 for rollover) is super common.

What isn't easy to do well in is the IIHS tests - they have a small overlap test (25% coverage only) on driver and passenger sides that were very difficult to do well on.

Here, the model S only gets an "Acceptable" rating on the driver's side, while the passenger side hasn't been tested. Its headlights are also rated as poor: https://www.iihs.org/iihs/ratings/ve...hatchback/2017

The Model 3 also hasn't been crash tested but the headlights are only rated acceptable for the time being. https://www.iihs.org/iihs/ratings/ve...3-4-door-sedan

Very few cars get a good rating on headlights from IIHS. The only car in the Model 3's class (Midsize Luxury Car) to get a good rating for headlights was the Alfa Romeo Giulia.

Wow, that's shocking compared to the compacts... remember a bunch of them had the Good rating - Impreza and Crosstrek were defs on the list as well as a wide variety of Hyundai/Kia products.

I'm not sure exactly why that is, but looking at the test procedures, they test vehicles with speed-adaptive lighting (which many modern luxury cars will have) at 65 km/h and 80 km/h while they state vehicles without adaptive lighting (most compacts) can be tested at any speed. That's my best guess to explain why.

I'd be interested to see what the results would be at highway speeds.

I believe the overlap test is very new
most cars designed more than a few years back would fail spectacularly

It's been done since 2012, any car updated after that shouldn't be too terrible at the small overlap. Since 2016 they've been doing both driver and passenger overlap.
