Max Power in 2017 Tesla Model S 75D + Speed Upgrade

Since receiving our Tesla Model S 75D with the new speed upgrade (Released in July 2017), we have been conducting tests to attempt to determine the maximum Horsepower put out by the dual motors.

For our tests we used the PowerTools For Tesla App which takes data directly from the cars monitoring systems.

We conducted numerous tests at near full battery and our highest HP test came back at a Max Power of 482HP and 0-60 in 4.2 seconds.

Power output increased uniformly until hitting a max of 482 HP at 46 MPH. As vehicle speed continued to increase beyond 46 MPH power output declined slowly.

In a future test we will conduct a 0-100 MPH run and report on the HP output throughout the run.

The Adventure Begins

After a full night of anticipation, a 15 minute uber ride puts us in front of the Tesla store, where we enter and greet the staff.

What brings you in they say, to take a test drive?

No! Not today, we are here to take delivery.

While we waited in the lobby we unpacked our DJI Mavic Pro Drone which would soon be following us on as we shutted off in our new ground based rocket. Another drone lover was in the store and he brought out his Mavic Pro and DJI VR Goggles to share with the group.

Before long it was time and our delivery specialist led us out the side door to meet our black and blue Tesla Model S.

We immediately added a personal tough with the Empire Emblem to the rear windshield.

We jumped in the car with our wonderful delivery specialist Sierra who gave us a rundown on how to operate a Tesla…

And then were presented with a choice, the most important choice of the day, what to name our new car?

“Geek Ship One”

The Geek Ship One began her adventure with us at the 5 mile mark.

We put the drone in the air and had her see us off.
