Tesla sets a drag record for fastest production car

What people still fail to realize about electric cars, due to negative PR from anti-green types, is that 100% of the torque is available to the wheels.

Which means, if you want sporty, you’ll want electric:

“The Tesla Model S Performance ended up running a best time of 12.371 @ 110.84 MPH with 0-60 MPH coming up in just 3.9 seconds.  The National Electric Drag Racing Association (NEDRA) was on site running their Winter EV Nationals and verified the Tesla runs to have set a new world record for the quickest production electric vehicle in the 1/4 mile.”
