    The Tesla Model S P90D with ludicrous mode is my favorite, because I own one. I don’t think my car can go as fast as your car did, though. Did you test a special version of the car or a version of the software that is not yet distributed?

    Are numbers you cite actual track values? I have driven some of these cars and practically applying their HP/torque values is nearly impossible for the “average joe” to do. So, like @Unshodbob, I agree the P90DL is by far the most mesmerizing of the bunch. Whether you’re barely moving, or at a standstill at the line, this car is a beast: immediate acceleration with no slip or stall. Absolutely blown away that any novice driver can enjoy the true potential of their super car.

    Thoughts?

      Hi Chiller,

      The numbers cited are what was achieved by major magazine publications such as Car & Drive and MotorTrend. So they were real tests, but using professional drivers.

      Keep in mind that many of the cars on the list include dual clutch and other automated transmissions and launch control systems, so these performance numbers are very achievable by most people.

    The Tesla Model S P90D is my favourite.

    It is the only car on the list that has:
    * Four doors.
    * 90 mpg (equivalent) fuel economy.
    * Zero emissions.
    * A generous truck in the back, AND a generous “frunk” in the front.
    * Can carry 5 adults (plus an optional 2 extra children in rear facing seats in the trunk).
    * Helps reduce our dependence on fossil fuel and foreign countries.

      lol – You had better “strike fossil fuel dependency” since Coal is a primary electricity producer in the US. “The batteries are charged primarily by plugging into off-board sources of electricity, produced from oil, coal,…” https://www.afdc.energy.gov/fuels/electricity_production.html

    Quick and fast are key factors for a car. However, looks make a huge impact on liking a car!

    Pure power, like the GTR, is impressive and certainly at an amazing price point. But, a $5 blow job is a good deal, but most likely most guys would pass (for many reasons which I don’t think need to be explained here!).

    Cars like the Porsche Spyder are so rare and unique, like the $800000+ price tag, they are not really reasonable to obtain.

    The Tesla and Porsche Turbo are priced to buy and obviously amazing!!!

    I like the Tesla and I also like the Demon which is missing from your list. The Dodge Demon does 2.1 sec to the Tesla 2.28 sec. See attached article on the Tesla and Demon times.

    The Demon is also the first factory car ever to do a wheelie (Guinness Book of Records). In the process, the Demon generates 1.8g of acceleration, another record for a production car.

      We are in the process of adding Demon to this page, however, the 2.1 second has a huge asterisk. As your link states:

      “Of course, that’s with the optional Direct Connection powertrain controller, no passenger seat or rear seat–which themselves are options–and running 100-octane racing fuel.”

      – That’s a little too much to consider it a 2.1 sec 0-60 car. Most cars would be quicker without any seats (lower weight) and with racing fuel. Magazines usually test cars using every day situations such as normal recommended fuel, standard options, and not on a sticky race strip.

        I get so tired of these liars that say EVs use coal/oil to re-fuel. Solar is going to kick all your coal-fired electricity to the curb along with your dinosaur technology engines. I love it that that custom builders are jumping in and converting anything they can get their hands on to electric making it faster, less maintenance to do and spewing out CLEAN AIR in the process. Can’t wait for the future to arrive and watch as all these gas/diesel/propane vehicles are sent to the crusher where they belong OR converted to electric.

    What stupid comment you are obviously ignorant of the fact that combustion engines are going through a revolution too and can run on non fossil green fuels.
    I have spoken to many manufacturers and they have no plan on electrification unless their arm is twisted by governments as they know that EVs are not as clean as all the hype make them out to be, anyone with a bit of sense should know this.
