Musk Says We’ll Be Able To Buy The Final Nürburgring-Spec Tesla Model S

What this trim actually is remain unknown but what we do know is that this Nürburgring-spec Tesla Model S won’t be cheap.

This whole Tesla vs. Porsche at the Nürburgring business has sparked so many conversations no matter what brand you feel more loyal to. While it was Porsche that hit back first by calling the Taycan the first true electric sports sedan, Musk quickly retaliated by sending a Tesla Model S to the Ring to show Porsche a thing or two.

We’ve read lots stories about the Tesla Model S, a few of them in fact, that was outfitted for the record run. If anything, although it was recognizable as a Model S, the majority of the “improvements” made the S had never before been seen. Specifically, these cars sported flared fenders, larger and lighter wheels, aggressive tires, a new rear spoiler as well as a new triple motor “Plaid” powertrain.

So far, and from what we can tell, the Model S has set an unofficial best time of 7:23 set in September. This latest modded Tesla Model S is still out there attempting to clock a better time and we eagerly await the results. As a reminder, this time bests the Taycan Turbo’s time of 7:42 – at the moment, Porsche has said nothing about a time set by the Taycan Turbo S…

In a Tweet, Elon Musk confirmed that “the final configuration used at Nürburgring to set the record will go into production around summer 2020.”
