“A different massive working day for the Unplugged Efficiency Tesla Model S Plaid group,” Pobst posted to Instagram. “New EV lap report! With UP leaders Avi and Ben. 156 mph into Convert Two at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, astonishing pace from a luxury 4-door sedan. This car is not much at all from the inventory street car.”
The car, recognised to the group as Dark Helmet, ran a one:28.213 lap – just a tenth of a 2nd more rapidly than the massive-electric power observe-spec Porsche and six/10ths driving the track’s report-holder. All three were pushed by Pobst. Earlier this summer, Unplugged Efficiency took the Model S Plaid race car up Pikes Peak, finishing to start with in the exhibition course and tenth in general at the world-well known hill climb. Just after Pikes Peak, Pobst referred to as Dark Helmet “the most negative-to-the-bone electric car ever built.”
