2022 Tesla Model S Plaid

2022 Tesla Model S Plaid

By Paul Herrold

Unless you’re used to being catapulted off the deck of an aircraft carrier in a fighter jet, or strapped into the seat of a Top Fuel Funny Car at the NHRA Nationals, there are few experiences that will prepare you for a 0-60 mph launch in the new Tesla Model S Plaid edition. With a recorded 1.99-second to 60 mph run on the books, you’ll be shoved back into your seat so hard that you might find it hard to breathe; the acceleration forces on your body are—quite literally—breathtaking.  If you ever have a chance to drive or just ride in one of these… do it, it is thoroughly impressive.
