tesla model s software update boost

Yeah, that’s right, the Tesla model S will soon get a software update that literally makes the car accelerate faster. I’m not sure exactly how that is accomplished, perhaps by allowing higher voltage to the motors. But regardless, that is freaking awesome. I wish I could update my old Volvo to go faster..

The update will improve the Telsa’s 0-60MPH acceleration time by a tenth of a second, to 3.1 seconds. This will literally make it accelerate as fast as McLaren’s MP4-12C supercar. Quite amazing.

Note that this update is only for the Model S P85D. The regular p85 will also get an update, but it won’t improve performance quite as much.
