  • One of the most popular examples of a Model S failing on-track surfaced two years ago, when racer Robb Holland took to the Nürburgring.

    Porsche recently took its Mission E prototype to the Nurburgring in Germany While the Mission E will definitely be a Tesla Model S competitor.

    From track experience, I can add a few details. At peak performance, max'ing out power draw and using regenerative braking and friction braking combined.

    Interesting are the 2 slow laps before and regen set to low Is the Tesla model S worth it? An NSX was pushed to the limits and burned to the ground. The Nurburgring is the race course that many auto manufacturers use to test and prove their cars. How much is the Tesla model S worth in aluminum?

    I'm sick and tired of being up Nurburgring every time they compare the tesla to their arcane ICE racers. I mean really' who cares? Half of them don't even know where it is, talk less of actually driving on it. Additionally why would anyone need more than mph in America? Or anywhere else for that matter?

    I think at this point, the argument is over. Other than quick refueling there's not a single plus to an ICE setup. Drag racing is only one aspect of a vehicles dynamics. Reminds me of the sixties, American cars were all about straight line acceleration, while the Europeans were about handling ang high speed touring. For me it prefer a balanced performing car. Meaning, those times don't mean anything for the street.

    You want to know which car is the fastest, go from the stoplight to the speed limit. Don't get me wrong, I can appreciate all the fine tuning involved for the sport of drag racing. However to use that as being indicative of how well the car will do on the street is misleading.

    Like that guy that modified the living daylights out of his Hellcat, to beat the P85D. What did that guy really prove? Way his car was set up slicks , he couldn't do that on the street. James May wrote a great article in Top Gear magazine about how the Nurburgring has ruined so many great cars.

    His point was that a street car should be designed to handle well on the street without beating you to death. These cars that are Nurburgring tuned may have a great lap time on a track, but are terrible on the street. Comparing my Viper to my friends Turbo makes me understand why the costs almost twice as much. It's awesome on he street. My viper feels like a race car. My Viper might beat the on a track, but at what cost? Cars that can run that track at Warp speed are one thing.

    Cars that can do that and be a comfy, usable daily driver are a whole different matter. The success of vehicles like the turbo is very much tied to that. Tesla now in my mind is close to that bench mark of the sedan category. Sure it can't run that track in good time due to battery pack temps but as pointed out above most of us don't care. The difference in my mind is that some people track their daily drivers I did with my vantage. It was an amazing feeling to drive the car there, race it and then pick up my wife, load two sets of golf clubs and go out for a round.

    That to me is an amazing car. If I wanted to do track racing I could take the savings from buying a huracan or turbo s and purchase the Ariel atom. What's in a name? That which we call an asshat by any other name would smell as sweet: I know my P85 couldn't even make it around the ring once without going into limp mode. I am ok with that. It is not a track car by any stretch of the imagination I drove a Porsche Spyder on the Nurburgring Nordschleife last month for a few laps. It was a top-ten life bucket list experience.

    I would not want to own that car. However, the point that people make when discussing the Tesla in the context of the Nurburgring is very valid - the FACT is that Elon Muck puts this car into supercar territory with his own words. He benchmarked it against the Mclaren that he formerly owned and wrecked.

    Tesla and Elon Musk tout this car and sell it against other cars in its price range and above. The Nurburgring is the race course that many auto manufacturers use to test and prove their cars.
