has posted some crazy fast 0-60 numbers for its Model S, raising comparisons with supercars.
But there's more to supercars that straight-line speed.
CEO Sergio Marchionne helpfully pointed this out.
The Tesla Model S P100D, with "Ludicrous Mode" acceleration, can go from 0-60 mph in a mind-boggling 2.3 seconds. This has led to declarations that this all-electric four-door, a family sedan for the future, is secretly a supercar.
That 0-60 speed might be faster than what some of the world's proper supercars can achieve, but the CEO of one of those supercar brands isn't having any of it.
