New Tesla Model S to Leave Your Rivals for Petrol-Free Dust

By Sam Gibbs on at

Elon Musk, Tesla's CEO, has been bigging up his latest baby, a souped-up Tesla Model S sedan, which the company is currently beta testing for the gear-heads among us.

The currently available Model S is no slouch with a 0-60 mph time of 5.6 seconds, but the new variant will bring that time down to a Porsche 911-beating 4.5 seconds. That's only 0.1 seconds off the king of sport saloons the BMW M5! With that kind of eye watering acceleration you're not going to have much issue besting that boy racer in the pimped-out Ford Fiesta at the lights. Eat my exhaust free dust! [Green Car Reports]
