Is 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds still too slow for you? If you’re lucky enough to have a Tesla Model S P100D you’re in for a surprise! This vehicle is claimed to be the quickest accelerating production car and it’s about to get even quicker.
Tesla have just announced that due to over-the-air software updates, which will be coming next month, this Tesla model will have a speed boost of 0.1 seconds while going from 0-60 mph!
Looks like the Model S P100D Easter egg will allow it to do 0 to 60 mph in 2.4 sec and a 10.6 sec 1/4 mile via software update next month

That’s from the CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk. The quarter mile time will also be improved by 0.1 seconds. No changes to the engine or car or necessary. The improved performance comes about entirely due to software optimization.
The improved performance only apples to Tesla P100D vehicles that have been produced to date. Other models are not included in the software update. The Tesla Model S P100D currently has a MSRP price of $134,500. The Tesla S has an electric range of around 315 miles and is the first electric vehicle to have a range greater than 300 miles.
