Tesla Model S Plaid Hits 203 mph on the Autobahn without Backseat

The Tesla Model S Plaid is known for its incredible speed and acceleration, and it seems that it can get even faster with a little weight shedding. In a recent video from AutoTopNL, a Model S Plaid without its backseat achieved an impressive feat. It went from 62-124 mph in just 3.99 seconds.

Although removing the backseat doesn’t significantly reduce the car’s weight, it seems to make it even more powerful and violent in its acceleration. The Model S Plaid in the video is stock, equipped with three electric motors that generate 1,020 horsepower and 1,050 lb-ft of torque.

In the video, the driver takes the Model S Plaid on the German Autobahn to test its performance limits. During one high-speed run, the car completed the 62-124 mph sprint in only 3.99 seconds. Additionally, another run saw the car finish the quarter-mile in 9.33 seconds. Equipped with the Track Package, this particular Model S Plaid can reach a top speed of over 200 mph. In fact, it reached a remarkable speed of 203 mph in the video.

While the acceleration and top speed of the Model S Plaid are impressive, one can only imagine the intense G-forces experienced by the driver and passenger. It must feel like being launched off an aircraft carrier. Despite its speed, this Model S Plaid still functions as a two-passenger car, providing a thrilling ride and maintaining its practicality.

Overall, this video demonstrates the incredible performance capabilities of the Tesla Model S Plaid. With its astonishing acceleration and impressive top speed, it solidifies its position as one of the fastest and most exhilarating electric cars on the market.
