Conclusion » It’s great at accelerating in a straight line, but not much else.

The Tesla Model S Plaid is the quickest accelerating production car on the market. Tesla claims a blistering quarter mile time of 9.3 seconds with a trap speed of 155 mph (249 kph).

But at CDN$191,000 or USD$148,000, one would hope for power steering system that can keep up, a decent suspension capable of carrying you safely around a corner, and much better brakes.

Like many other things involving Elon Musk, it seems, safety was not the priority when designing the Tesla Model S Plaid.
