Issue 78 - Spotify coming soon 🎧

Model S Plaid can achive 7:20 at Nürburgring

This isn’t an official time, but if it’s true, it’s pretty impresive. For context, the 7:20 time is 20 seconds faster than the Taycan, the fastest 4-door EV at Nürburgring. But this isn’t only about EVs, at 7:20 the Tesla Model S would be 15 seconds faster than the 2019 BMW M5 and 5 seconds faster than the 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT, and could take the title of the fastest 4-door sedan at Nürburgring when they do an official timed lap.

In the same tweet, Tesla announced that they will be coming back at Nürburgring next month and they believe they can achieve 7:05. Take a look at the initial Model S data on the track:

Very impressive new video of a Model 3 with v10 and Smart Summon, really confident. I can’t wait to experience it myself.

Conditional speed limits in effect

We saw conditional speed limits a few months ago but this is the first time that I see the car recognizing that is raining and automatically selecting the conditional speed limit, neat!

TeslaRaj pours 5 galons of water in his trunk

Even if you aren’t looking for new mats, don’t miss out on watching how TeslaRaj pours five galons of water in his trunk 🤣 These mats by Teslamian are designed by Vincent and seem like a good option if you are in the market for all-weather floor mats.

Thanks Raj for rocking our My Car Updates t-shirt.

The car now appears to display cellular bandwidth used and bandwidth cap

We believe this is only for folks in the Early Access Program- as we reported last week Tesla is enabling LTE for YouTube and Netflix for them- but I wouldn’t be surprised if this rolls out to everyone. The reason why is because now they can stream from their browser and I’m not sure Tesla can limit that to WiFi only.

Performance Model 3 spoiler installation

If you purchased a Performance Model 3 and are still waiting for Tesla to call to get your spoiler installed, you can stop waiting. Just schedule a service appointment and they’ll come to you and get the job done.

I don’t have a link for you and I have a Model S, not Performance Model 3, but a friend just did this and since it seems that some people didn’t know about it, I thought I’d share.

Folks in the Early Acess program can now operate their windows from the mobile app

A new version of the mobile app just introduced the ability to operate the windows from it. The app now shows the option “vent” and when you tap on it the car drops all four windows about 3 inches. When the windows aren’t completely closed the label on the button changes to “close”, and tapping it closes all four windows." It’s great to see this new functionality added to the app!

What the acronym?

As Tesla fan I find myself sometimes having to remember what are all those acronyms, here is a list of the ones you can find in this issue.

  • FSD - Full Self-Driving
  • EV - Electric Vehicle

Because we 💚 Tesla

Our Model S rocks so much that we designed some sweet t-shirts to go with it. Check out all of our designs at https://shop.spreadshirt.com/tesletter
