All teams will compete in an identical-specification Model S P100D that has shed more than 1,000 pounds.
Electric GT's production-EV racing series is one step closer to reality as the company delivers its first race-prepped Tesla Model S to a customer in Barcelona.
Referred to as the EPCS V2.3 Tesla P100DL, the car has been stripped of unnecessary interior pieces to help reduce its curb weight by more than 1,000 pounds.
With 778 horsepower and 734 pound-feet of torque, the lightened sedan is said to be capable of hitting 62 mph in just 2.1 seconds and topping out at 155 mph
This is a big full size 4-door sedan at 1 sec faster to 60 than the carbon fiber GT race car. But then again the BASE 2020 Tesla Roadster can get there in 1.9 sec, this is before the Space X Performance Pack.
Hello Ford....(knock, knock, knock).....are you there?
