    Thanks for posting this! Very nice! 5.9 is the official Tesla quoted time, so that's pretty cool that you are beating that by half a second!

    That is what I find cool about the S (and other EVs to come i'm sure). No need to be a Formula One driver to achieve the quoted time, simply floor the pedal and here you go. Part of how you beat a SRT10, E63 AMG and an M5.

    It's a very respectable 0-60 time for any car, period. My prior car was a 2009 BMW 335ci convertible with the twin-turbo 300HP / 300 lb-ft engine in it and the sport package as well. It impressed all normal people who got anywhere near it, and yet "only" clocked 5.9 in the 0-60 sprint. Going to a manual transmission would have made it quicker, but only down to 5.7 according to BMW. Lots of other examples I could give, but you get the point.

    I used my iphone to record video of the 0-60 time in my 60kwh Model S. According to Final cut Pro's timecode, it did the run in 5.26 seconds, which I'll round up to 5.3. Pretty impressive!
