Tesla has proved to everybody that they can build very good and well engineered cars which genuinely work and can be used with little-to-no compromise, when it comes to range and usability. We are not going to bore you with the excellent figures which back up the Model S, except for one – 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 4.4-seconds (4.3, as some who have tested it have found out).

The Model S is a big family sedan, yet it can outaccelerate a BMW M5. Imagine what Tesla could do if they made a dedicated all-electric supercar… Our imaginations are running rampant with excitement, yet we still have a few years to wait before such a machine becomes a reality, if Tesla’s outspoken CEO, Elon Musk really meant what he said, when he stated that the company is studying the possibility of making a Ferrari-rivaling supercar, powered only by electricity.

Apparently, the supercar should have made its debut earlier, but Tesla need to concentrate on the development of their cheaper 3-Series rival, to sell alongside the Model S and Model X, in order to have a solid foundation on which to allow the construction of a ‘halo car’.
