Well, yes.

His 80kwH battery is what's in the Model S now. He claims a 200kwH battery is going in the Roadster. Not a ****ing snowball's chance in hell there was one in the demo unit, as the SIZE and MASS of that bitch will make the car REALLY ****ing heavy, and of course acceleration is directly proportional to the accelerated mass, force being equal.

Never mind the other problem which is that the existing Model S is very fast on a straight pull -- for a little while. But it's HEAVY -- that's a 4600lb car! Further, start hammering it and you run into heating issues within its systems (including the battery) which cause it to cut back. Never mind that if you hammer the **** out of it you'll be lucky to make 100 miles before the battery is dead flat on its ass.

The 911 Carerra is a ~3100lb car. It will SMOKE the Tesla in anything other than a straight line short-distance run, it will do so for longer on a tank of fuel, and you can refill it in 5 minutes.
