      Another justification for questioning the drag results from Faraday Future's stripped down car. Although, their concerns run much deeper than questionable drag times.

        Lol, yes. FF have bigger issues.

        For the first time I'm a bit disappointed in an article from electrek.

        'They say that their stripped down P100D with Ludicrous+ can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.1 seconds.
        It would mean that 60 mph could easily be reached in 2.0 seconds and it would make the vehicle untouchable up to that speed.'

        That's a big assumption. Then to title the article with that assumption is a bit misleading.

        My point is, They are already accused of being Tesla fan boys. Skewing an article in Tesla's direction so blatantly doesn't make them any more credible.

          Actually, it's not an assumption, if you look at all production cars 0 to 60 times. I believe that was the point of view they were coming from.

          The way I read it was that it will do 0-62mph in 2.1s so it must be able to do 0-60mph in 2.0s.

            Even from that point of view, that's not a far reach.
