How Much Faster Is The Tesla Model S P100D About To Get?

An incoming Easter egg that "uncorks the full performance" of the P100D is on the way, so just how much is the car's incredible 2.5sec 0-60 about to drop?

Remind me later
Tesla - How Much Faster Is The Tesla Model S P100D About To Get? - General

We’ve only just gotten used to the idea of a large, rather heavy electric saloon car dispatching 0-60mph in 2.5 seconds, but already, there’s talk of the monstrous Tesla Model S P100D getting even faster.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk sent out a Tweet recently, teasing that “there will be a P100D Ludicrous Easter egg soon that uncorks the full performance.” Wait, you mean 0-60 in 2.5 seconds is what the P100D does partially corked?

So, how much faster do you think the Model S is about to get? Since we’re talking about an over-the-air software update to make the most of the new 100kWh battery - rather than a hardware upgrade - we’re probably talking about a tenth or so rather than a hugely significant drop in the 0-60mph time.

Feel free to speculate below, and when the P100D’s newfound performance is revealed you can see how right or wrong you were…
