Tesla Model Y from Unplugged sets SUV track record, beating ICE giants in the process


The Tesla Model Y Performance paired together with modifications from pruning firm Unplugged Performance struck on the 3.1 mile-long Buttonwillow Raceway in Southern California, and the results have been nothing short of astonishing.

After establishing a new course record in the Performance Model 3, Unplugged Performance took Tesla’s newest all-electric crossover to Buttonwillow for testing functions. Currently, UP is in the process of developing a collection of suspension and braking components for the Model Y. While UP is already promoting performance braking bundles, comfort-oriented coilovers and adjustable sway bars were the main attention in their hottest tests. Both these suspension enhancements will increase handling.

Following UP’s evaluation driver Joshua Allen left behind the wheel of the Model Y, the all-electric crossover recorded a blistering-quick lap of 2:01.92. While this was a listing at Buttonwillow for SUVs, what the Model Y also accomplished because record-setting run was shown to be much more striking.

Even the Model Y Performance, fitted with UP updates, not just managed to establish the fastest lap ever recorded for a crossover SUV at Buttonwillow Raceway, but in addition, it beat a number of the quickest ICE racing-oriented sports cars to ever test at the monitor. The time was faster than the Porsche 997 911 Turbo by almost two-tenths of a second and was less than half a second behind the Porsche 997 911 GT3 track-tuned sports car. The Model Y also was .17 seconds faster compared to the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport.

While it could be reasonable to expect this in the sedan, a crossover drawing such high performance performance is astounding. Despite the fact that the Performance Model Y is already effective at a 155 MPH top speed plus a 3.5-second 0-60 MPH rating when paired together with Tesla’s Performance Upgrade bundle , the vehicle can perform in an even more impressive fashion when piled some of UP’s braking and suspension updates.

UP President Ben Schaffer informs Teslarati he’s convinced their Model Y Performance will record an even faster lap time with all the approaching suspension updates. “After testing, we are convinced we could go sub two minutes with the Model Y after we release our race-tuned coilovers,” Schaffer stated. “We will continue to launch more suspension tuning for all Teslas and also to establish new lap records farther globally.

In the upcoming months, UP will soon be testing more laps in communicating with TeslaCorsa. Not only will the UP altered Model Y be at the function, but people testing are also available to anyone who would love to test their own all-electric vehicle in a secure atmosphere.
