+ - Tesla Model S: 0-60 in 4.5 seconds->

thecarchik writes: We already know a lot about the all-electric 2012 Tesla Model S sedan — but at a press event ahead of tonight’s exclusive VIP event at the former Toyota NUMMI facility in Fremont, California, Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced Tesla was making a faster Model S for those with a sporty side.

Cutting the brisk 0-60 time of the standard Model S from 5.6 second to under 4.5 seconds, the sportier version features the same 85 kilowatt-hour, 300 miles-per-charge battery pack found in the 2012 Model S Signature series.

“That’s quicker than a [Porsche] 911 [Carrera],” joked Musk. “Not bad for an electric luxury sedan.”

But if you thought 300 miles was the maximum range a Tesla Model S could do, you’d be wrong.
