A ’10-second-car’ is a common term used to refer to a car that can run a quarter-mile in 10.999 or less. Very few production vehicles can make the run. A few owners of Tesla Model S P90D with Ludicrous mode reported times in the 10.8 seconds, but it was inconsistent and most were getting 11 seconds.

As we previously reported, the Tesla Model S P100D gets a lot of attention for its title of the ‘Quickest Production Car in the World’ – a very headline grabbing title, but it also has the longest range of any electric vehicle available almost everywhere today.

Now that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) gave its official rating of 315 miles this week, like Tesla estimated, it dethroned the Toyota Mirai for the longest range of any zero-emission car.

Tesla enthusiasts have since been fantasizing about the potential performances of a P100D Model S or X. Last month, Tesla finally confirmed the new 100 kWh battery pack, which gives the ‘Quickest Production Car in the World’ title to the Model S P100D with Ludicrous Mode.

When the automaker officially announced the new top-of-the-line model, Tesla said that it was entering production and now almost 4 weeks later, those cars are making their way to Tesla stores and service centers.

In order to make the Tesla Model 3 happen, there are a lot of technology and manufacturing improvements that need to come together. The most talked about is the new battery cell that will go to production at the Tesla Gigafactory in Nevada later this year, but the automaker has also reinvented its battery pack infrastructure for the vehicle.

With the new P100D battery pack, Tesla is introducing its first third-generation battery pack technology in production vehicles. A successful deployment of the technology would be a good sign for Tesla’s third-generation platform and therefore, crucial for the Model 3.
