So if this video is any indication, I guess it will take take about 1000whp (maybe a little more due to weight) for any CTS-V to have a chance against one of these Model S PLAIDs from a rolling speed

so the apples v apples for a tesla is the tesla against the Bugatti Chiron, both AWD to make it equal, no point putting AWD cars against big hp rear wheel unless ur at the track with drag slicks

By the numbers I think a Lucid Dream might give it a nice run, ultimately loosing to the Plaid. I heard the batteries in the Plaid is good for 1500hp, so Tesla could easily release an over the air update when the completion starts to close the gap.

The Lucid looks sweet on paper but it hits the wallet pretty hard.

Yeah, all of these electric cars are very costly to own. Before you know it the big 3 Michigan manufactures will be producing high powered electric on par with the Tesla Plaid performance at a fraction of the price. Overall, I like the looks of the Taycan Turbo the best. I'm pretty sure Porsche is readying a more powerful Taycan to punch back at Tesla.

Plaids are running low 8s in the quarter.
9's or 8's? The quickest Ive heard of so far is a 9.24 run by Jay Leno. That was about a month ago though.

Huh?? Plaids run about 9.25 in the 1/4 fully charged. The fastest time overall right now I think is 9.1 by DragTimes with lighter wheels and stickier tires.

Full weight (non weight removal) Plaids will easily dip into the high 8s when Tesla release the first over-air power increase.

Now the upcoming Tesla roadster will in all likelihood be a mid to low 8 second car

And he can fill up the tank in 2 minutes versus hours of charging.
