Tesla’s Elon Musk took to Twitter to announce that 0 to 60 mph in 2.34 seconds “might be achievable.” This result is part of a Ludicrous+ Easter egg that is being pushed out over-the-air to Tesla vehicles. If realized, this achievement trumps the Model S P100D time of 2.4 seconds, and is just about the same as Faraday Future’s demonstration of its F 91 prototype. Faraday took to CES to show off its 0 to 60 mph time, even bringing out a P100D Tesla Model S on stage for a race.

If Musk’s claim that a 2.34 second time to go from 0-60 mph can become reality, then that would best Faraday’s best time by 0.05 seconds. It’s definitely an exciting time for electric vehicles and testing what can be achieved.
