When it comes to luxury performance sedans that cost about $100,000, the competition is incredibly fierce. Tenths of a second in 0-60 times become hugely important, and the big names in German super sedans are always hard at work trying to one-up each other with a few tenths. This is why it was such an important moment when Tesla announced that the 2015 Tesla P85D would be able to hit 60 mph in 3.2 seconds. That number makes the P85D quicker than any of the Germans, and that is a very big deal.
But Consumer Reports has just tested the Tesla, and the findings theoretically tip the scales back to the Germans.
