Re: GT500 Performance Specs Revealed
Eh...maybe "quicker" but not really "faster", as various tests show. That electric motor will run out of top end...and at that point, the power consumption will obliterate the range even more than the higher fuel use of the GT500 at high speeds.
It's kinda reminding me of a buddy who built his old F-150 up with really aggressive gearing and mods to the 300-6 it had. The truck was amazing...for the stoplight grand prix. Also, if you put your foot in it, you could watch the gas needle heading for E.
That's kinda how I see "performance EVs" right now. The tech is impressive, but the entire field needs the next battery breakthrough to really be a feasible replacement for ICE vehicles (to which, I'm sure, AOC is loudly opposed).
Sorry, couldn't help myself.
Sorry to say this, but Tesla has decided to put in the Tesla Plaid powertrain into the upcoming Model S and Y. It is built for racing! There will be no warning lights for overheating of drivetrain, motor or brakes that exist in the current models that are run on the track! It is being testing on the Nürburgring right now! Hoping to out duo the Taycan record.
