Elon Musk teases a 2.8 0-60MPH P85D time (1.1G ~faster than falling) as a warmup to home battery event

Remember when we’d heard that the Tesla P85D was testing below 3 second 0-60 before it was even announced (with its conservative 3.2S 0-60mph). Today in tweets to @zedd and @deadmau5, Musk teased that that time would be nice.

FYI: 2.8secs is the time I’d originally heard before the P85D announcement. I’ve subsequently heard that the tires necessary to move the car that fast are too soft for roadworthiness currently. But that’s “just a science problem.”
