We already knew the Tesla Model S was fast , but not this fast . After dropping a 12.371 quarter mile this past weekend at the Palm Beach International Raceway in Florida (@ 110.84 MPH), the National Electric Drag Racing Association awarded the Tesla Model S its stamp of officiation for being “the quickest production vehicle” in quarter mile tests. That’s not just on a single pass, mind you, but several quarter mile runs over the course of a day at the track. Each pass reaffirmed a 12-second average from the 416HP electric beast — more than proficient for a 4,700-lb hulk of metal, and more than competitive against much lighter and more expensive beasts. And that’s all without internal combustion, lest you forget — the thing even gets 350 miles per charge . Drag Times attended the event and promises video in the coming days, but for now you can peep the quarter mile timeslips and read their rundown.
