    Tech Discussion: Tesla unveils the ‘D’, a dual-motor all-wheel-drive super car with auto-pilot
    #1
    Tesla’s next car, the P85D, will have two motors and all-wheel drive. It will match the 3.2 second 0 to 60 mph time of the McLaren F1, one of the fastest cars ever made. And it will be even more efficient than the current, already terrific, Model S.

    “This car is nuts. It’s like taking off from a carrier deck. It’s just bananas,” said CEO Elon Musk, who unveiled the D at a crowded event, next door to the headquarters of the other company he helms, Space X.

    Basically, you get a motor in the front and back of the car, with three different versions hitting the market: the 60D, 85D and P85D.

    That’s not all though. Tesla is fitting a radar too that can infiltrate fog and snow, as well as a camera with image-recognition abilities and a 360-degree ultrasonic sonar. This will enable is a smart, auto-pilot mode – we’re in the future, folks.
