"The only thing beyond Ludicrous is Plaid," Elon Musk tweeted. In this galaxy, that equates to much speed. Ludicrous" is famous as being Tesla"s top dog performance level. And thus, Plaid is the new, um, even topper dog of the Tesla tree. The toppest of top dogs. Before we get carried adrift imagining top dogs (maybe in top hats?), Plaid. It"s apparently a three-motor setup and will be available on the Model S, the Model X, and the incoming Roadster hyperthing. Ludicrous currently packs a dual-motor setup. Three therefore, is better than two. It won"t, however, be available on the littlest Tesla, the Model 3, or the incoming Model Y. Musk said the performance level is "about a year away from production", and that it"ll "cost more than our current offerings but less than competitors". A swipe at Porsche and the new 139k Taycan Turbo S?
