Since everyone keeps asking me about my take on Tesla’s Lap Record attempt or it allegedly already beating the Porsche Taycan here are my 2 cents:
First if all, I haven’t timed it, because I am busy with some other things at this point. So I cannot say if the claimed 20 sec faster time is legit. Then, nobody knows what model specification exactly is currently running on the Ring. Yes, on the outside it is a Model S. On the badge it is a P100D+. On the speculation it is a dev car for a so-called “Plaid” version.
All I can say is that HRE wheels, semi-slick tyres, massive carbon ceramic Big Brake Kit, and a DIY-wing don’t sound stock to me. Apparently the car is also running a full KW suspension. On one of the pictures you can also see the duct tape “door handle” which may suggest the original mechanism has been removed
