Just days after setting a new record for fastest quarter-mile time of any production car with the Plaid Model S, Tesla is at it again, this time at Laguna Seca Raceway.
This time they arrived at the track with the newly designed Model S, with one big change that we haven’t seen before on any of the test vehicles spotted on public roads – a massive adjustable rear wing built into the trunk lid.
It is unclear at this time if this Model S is a Plaid or a Plaid+ variant. According to Levenson, they have so far been been able to clock an unofficial time of around 1:30.
If that time is accurate, they might be able to beat the time that driver Sebastien Vittel set last year of 1:30.3. The team should be staying at the track until around 5:00pm PST this afternoon, so there could be more news coming soon.
Stay tuned for updates…
