Tesla Model S Plaid edges Porsche 911 GT2 RS at Laguna Seca

The Unplugged Functionality Tesla Product S Plaid race car or truck lapped Laguna Seca more rapidly than a Porsche 911 GT2 RS in the arms of professional driver Randy Pobst, coming in next only to the McLaren Senna at California’s most prestigious highway class. 

“Another major day for the Unplugged Functionality Tesla Product S Plaid workforce,” Pobst posted to Instagram. “New EV lap file! With UP leaders Avi and Ben. 156 mph into Turn Two at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, astonishing pace from a luxury four-doorway sedan. This car or truck is not considerably at all from the stock street car or truck.”

The car or truck, recognized to the workforce as Darkish Helmet, ran a one:28.213 lap – just a tenth of a next more rapidly than the major-electricity track-spec Porsche and 6/10ths behind the track’s file-holder. All a few were being pushed by Pobst.  Earlier this summer season, Unplugged Functionality took the Product S Plaid race car or truck up Pikes Peak, ending first in the exhibition course and tenth total at the globe-famed hill climb. Right after Pikes Peak, Pobst referred to as Darkish Helmet “the most lousy-to-the-bone electric car or truck at any time manufactured.”
