Tesla Model S P100D is definitely the fastest four-door production vehicle, such that it is an electric vehicle. It has proven its worth in terms of speed, however, others wonder how such an electric vehicle perform while negotiating sharp curves.

The Tesla Model S P100D is fast, no doubt about that. However, not all roads are created to just go straight. It can definitely go insanely well on the freeway, but how will it do in streets such as Lombard, popularly known as "The Crookedest Street?"

The Tesla Model S P100D is capable of producing 603-horsepower and 713 pound-feet of torque. This is because of its two electric motors mounted on each axle. Both feed on the 100kW battery pack which can go on for a distance of 315 miles.

This is a good start for such an electric vehicle. Flat out, it also is considered fun to drive as Tesla goes for BMW M5-levels of engagement as it launched the P100D. Experts say that it did negotiate winding roads like a pro, something that is expected from a Tesla, to begin with.

Industry experts and car enthusiasts may answer in unison that the P100D is one capable and intense electric vehicle in terms of performance, power, and of course, speed. It absolutely outruns everything else on a straight line as well as it gracefully winds through curved roads.

The Tesla Model S P100D's cabin is reported to be even more improved than its exterior. It boasts of 17-inch portrait screen with an impressive interface. It is reviewed as highly responsive, making it even better.

It also comes in with so much torque that having extra pounds inside doesn't affect the entire performance. Whether there's only the passenger or packed with as much as it can accommodate, the performance remains as flawless as expected.

The Tesla Model S P100D is definitely one impeccable electric vehicle as it is a definite must-have, for the filthy rich that is. If one has extra $250,582, don't think twice! For the rest, it is best to wait for one as it careens past along the California freeway.
