Tesla Model S with "Plaid Mode" breaks the Laguna Seca track! (awesome video)

It seems that the record set by Porsche Taycan on the Nurburgring track managed to leave Elon Musk in "competition mode". The company has tested a Tesla Model S with the mythical "Plaid Mode" and a prototype chassis on the Laguna Seca, California track.

The 1 minute 36 second result earned Tesla the fastest 4-door sedan record ever on this legendary track. Elon Musk merely commented that "the only thing beyond Ludicrous is the Plaid", referring to the two most powerful modes of Tesla cars.

Elon Musk has confirmed the arrival of this unbelievable mode for several Tesla models.

Shortly after the manufacturer posted the video of the Laguna Seca lap lap, Elon Musk finally confirmed that "Plaid Mode" will be available for the Model S, Model X and the new Roadster to be released in 2020.

Musk has gone even further and revealed that production for this mode for the average user is still about a year away, and will cost more. Still, it has confirmed that it will keep its price below its competition.

In the video below, you can see "Plaid Mode" in action at the Tesla Roadster presentation event. This is an unbelievable mode, being impressive even through recording. While it is an impressive feature, it is hard to imagine a scenario in which it would be really useful while driving day to day.

Tesla Model S vs Porsche Taycan

There is still no official information about when Elon Musk will be able to take his Tesla Model S to the Nurburgring track in Germany. But it seems more than certain that this will indeed happen, considering Musk's great competitive spirit.

Although it is very likely that Tesla will break the Porsche Taycan record, it will do so using a prototype Tesla Model S equipped with a modified chassis and "Plain Mode", which is not yet available to its users. On the other hand, the Porsche Taycan used is exactly the model that is available for purchase.
