CEO Elon Musk tweeted saying the delivery event will happen in just a few weeks and believes the EV is the "fastest production car ever."
It all started with Gran Turismo. From those early PlayStation days, Sean was drawn to anything with four wheels. Prior to joining the Roadshow team, he was a freelance contributor for Motor Authority, The Car Connection and Green Car Reports. As for what's in the garage, Sean owns a 2016 Chevrolet SS, and yes, it has Holden badges.
ready to throw a bash for the Model S Plaid. CEO
said in a tweet Thursday the automaker will have a delivery launch party for the new Plaid variant on June 3. He also said the EV is the "fastest production car ever" with a 0-60 mph time of less than two seconds.
That's not how the record books measure "fastest production car," but the Model S Plaid could be the quickest car to 60 mph if independently verified. Regardless, the Model S Plaid will be a quick machine, with an advertised 200 mph top speed, while still returning a Tesla-estimated 390 miles of range.
The company's website says the Model S Plaid won't be ready for deliveries until August at the earliest, but perhaps Tesla will be able to get a handful of the cars to owners to throw the launch party. If you want the seriously bonkers Model S Plaid Plus, the site says it's not coming until mid-2022 at this point.
Maybe Musk will divulge other details during the event. We'll bring you the latest as we hear it.
