Who other than Elon Musk would put an "Insane Mode" on a car? The Tesla P85D houses 691-horsepower and goes 0-60mph in 3.2-seconds, which creates a lateral acceleration of 1G. Dropping this rocket-like propulsion on unsuspecting people will certainly create some insane reactions. So that's exactly what DragTimes did, and the results are quite comical.
The legendary skater discovered untapped features in his new electric car.
Tony Hawk just picked up a new toy, a Tesla Model S. The state of the art electric car can go 125 miles per hour and has zero emissions. There is another feature that Hawk found particularly appealing, an HD backup camera. Instead of using the camera to see how close someone was tailgating him, Hawk realized the camera could be used to film skateboarding.
Tesla owners really love their electric cars. And many of them purchase vanity license plates to let the rest of the world know just how awesome their Teslas are.
For loyal South Park fans, these license plates may remind them of the episode where the Broflovski family purchases a hybrid car and then moves to San Francisco where they meet like-minded families who are so smug that they smell their own farts.
Tesla owners really love their cars—their license plates are proof of that. And here's just one more reason for them to love their electric vehicles: they can confuse Dyno machines.
Emmanuel out of Alberta, Canada hooked his 2013 Tesla Model S P85 up to a Dyno and let 'er rip. Since it doesn't have a transmission, the Dyno quickly became confused by the constant power and maxed out on the torque reading. It said it only had 2,000 ft-lbs of torque, but in reality it's got something closer to 4,300 ft-lbs. Stupid Dyno.
