SET TO STUN

BY SCOTT NEWMAN + PICS CRISTIAN BRUNELLI


THERES ONE SURE-FIRE WAY to get the Teslarati wound up the electric motors they love so dearly, and that's to suggest the only performance car Tesla has built to date is the Lotus-derived Roadster. “But, but, but,” they splutter indignantly, “the Model S can hit 100km/h in less than three And the Model X is the world’s quickest and most powerful SUV!” Both true, but sheer speed isn’t everything; Shinkansen bullet train can travel at up to 600km/h and like it’s on rails (which, being magnetically levitated, technically not), but probably isn’t very engaging to steer.
