Kilowatts can ooze Tesla photo, video and information. And he did it again. Electric car fanatic manages to get some great Tesla footage Model S Plaid and, perhaps, Plaid + record lap attempt at WeatherTech Laguna Seca Race Track In California.
Kilowatts said the team recorded an unconfirmed time of 1:30 XX on the track.
Back in 2019, the Model S Plaid prototype overtook the Laguna Seca in 1: 36.55, breaking the record for the fastest four-door car on the track. Then the prototype version Lucid Air Dream Release Last year the lap time at Laguna Seca was 1: 31.3. Naturally, Tesla returned to the Laguna Seca with a Model S blanket and broke the record again with a time of 1: 30.3… We will soon find out if Tesla will break the record again.
Another cool thing the Kilowatts noticed is the active rear wing on one of the Plaid (or maybe Plaid +) models moving along the track. This is something new for the Model S, but is expected because many high-performance cars use an active spoiler for extra downforce at high speeds.
McLaren Senna holds current production car lap record at WeatherTech Laguna Seca Raceway in 1: 27.62 s Randy Pobst Behind the wheel. The previous record was set in a Porsche 911 GT2 RS with a time of 1: 28.30 (also driven by Randy Pobst).
Between Tesla and Lucid… Both companies seem to be at the center of a war of speed and performance (not to mention a war of range). When one company overtakes another at a quarter mile distance, the other responds faster.
It could happen again with Model S Plaid at Famoso Raceway a few days ago. It’s the same with Laguna Seca lap times: one company must be faster than the other. Still, it’s great to see an electric vehicle rocket shoot down the famous Corkscrew like this.
Model S Blankets may start shipping this summerand we expect Lucid Air Dream Edition will begin production later this year…
