Is it worth the $36,000 cost to upgrade from a Tesla Model S 100D to the performance version, the P100D?
DragTimes recently tested the two side-by-side in an effort to answer that exact question. The result? Well, that depends on how much you think a 1-second difference from 0 to 60 MPH is worth.
What does a 1 second difference from 0-60 MPH look like in the real world and is it worth the $36,000 upgrade cost from the 100D to P100D in the Tesla Model S?
We test out the Tesla Model S P100D with Ludicrous Plus mode against it’s less expensive sibling, the 100D to see what the 1 second performance difference to 60 MPH looks like in a stop light race.
In our opinion, the Model S 100D is more than quick enough, so we’d save that extra $36,000 and perhaps put it towards something like a Tesla Model 3 or a new Nissan LEAF.
