The Tesla Model S is a legit sports sedan. Smooth, fast, good looking, and fun to drive. It has the whole combination. But thanks to the lack of a transmission and how it puts power down, it can fool a dyno into thinking it has 2,000 pound feet of torque. Damn.

While the torque was wild, the horsepower was basically flat, showing that it has 436. Tesla says the P85 S has 415 horsepower, so the figure is close. Driveline loss appears to be basically non-existent.

Hat Tip to Brooks!
