The INSANE Engineering of the New Tesla Plaid Model S

Elon Musk touched on some secrets behind the Plaid Model S during Tesla's reveal of the new vehicle. the Model S Plaid will contain breakthrough innovations and insane engineering design, in areas such as the Carbon Sleeved Rotors, and a refreshed user interface. Tesla brings in new software with Auto Shift that uses machine learning AI to guess your driving direction. Model S sports an AMD RDNA 2 processor which gives it PS5 level power, and speaking of power, the car has a perfect power curve for ultimate acceleration, 1000 horsepower, and a top speed of 200+ miles per hour. Find out what else Plaid Model S has hidden in store.

    @Paul Dobson I agree. There hasn't been this kind of car since Aston-Martin V8. A large five seater with better performance and looks than a sports car. I remember Roger More in a DBS and Tony Curtis in a Dino 246 GT racing in the French Riviera. We all thought the sports car should have the edge but despite its beauty it was underpowered. The Plaid model S&X will compete in several classes at the same time. Especially at this quite affordable price. Yes, performance at this level has never been cheaper. There are a lot of Teslanaires, who, like Emmet Peppers, will sell some shares to buy the quickest car available. I wonder what will happen to Lamborghini and Ferrari as customers realise that despite the provocative appearance they struggle to keep up with a family car. Maybe smoke and noise will now be associated with the not so fast cars and quiet performance with fast cars?

    No, It won't dominate the Luxury market. It will define it's own market. It will pull some from the luxury market, some from the performance race car market, some from the general auto enthusiast market, some from the Tesla fan boy market. Overall, it is arguably the best car but maybe not be in any one area except performance.

You have to factor in the way they look and brand legacy. The roadster will have the look and the performance.

    there is no need for multiple gears on an electric motor. electric motors have a much higher rpm capability and have maximum torque at zero rpm. so if the torque is greatest from stand still and the maximum rpm is triple that of a combustion engine you can see how transmissions are just not needed.

The brilliance that Elon Musk's companies make us almost blasé to the awesome progress all the time, the competition has no chance against such progressive outlook that never stands still. Other companies just try to copy as if Tesla will stop improving.

Other components like Software and styling will continue to evolve in a more linear fashion but if manufacturing of batteries and autos can be done add 1/3 the cost of any other company in the world it’s game over for the competition.

    What are the engineering tradeoffs in choosing to have a single speed gearbox vs two speed?

(Not that this would be such a bad thing - it is a tech demonstration of the capabilities of electric cars, and anyone who doesn't want the silly top speed can not pay for it and save $50k.)

Moreover most supercars are track machines and need downforce and this they have a wing at the back which increases it's drag coefficient

    Although Tesla has lower Cd (drag coefficient), it may still require more energy than Porsche to move. The drag equation also includes (frontal) area (A). You have to multiply Cd by A for a true relative comparison. Lucid claims both a low Cd and A, so ought to be pretty efficient. Teslas are quite large cars relatively speaking (especially when compared with European cars). Edit: other things in the drag equation are constants (at same speed). The only 'variable' is are density (r, rho). High temperatures would reduce r for better acceleration and top end, (but both of these are also dependent on rolling friction and motor power and efficiency).

    Probably not "software limited at that speed", it is battery output limited at ~750Kw. Each motor is capable of 400hp, with more battery output it should be able to go up to somewhere nearer 3 x 400 = 1200hp (depending on other limitations). Probably looking to roadster, which will be a beast.

    If Tesla's rollout of the CSRs (carbon-sleeved rotors) is like other performance-related features, they've left significant unlocked potential, providing headroom to crank up the top speed, etc., and will gradually unlock more once they've gained a body of real-world experience.

    10:00 This is the chart that will have Hellcats and their owners crying, but only when they understand what it means at the racetrack. For years Models S & X have sprinted past their fossil competitors in the first 6 seconds, only to see them grow in the rearview and roar past around the quarter mile. I liken the contest to the one in the WW2 Pacific theater between the Mitsubishi A6M Zero (as Dodge Hellcat) and it's nemesis the Grumman F4F Wildcat (as Raven Model S), only to find itself up against the similar-looking Grumman F6F Hellcat (as Plaid Model S). Japanese aces died mistaking the Hellcat for the Wildcat.

    1865s have some advantages over 2170s due to their smaller size, such as higher aggregate power draw and greater surface area for thermal transfer, that are particularly beneficial for the performance demands of Models S&X. I wonder if the new pack uses plate instead of ribbon cooling.

    Quibbles: There's no steel casing around the rotor, which is built up of numerous thin steel sheets stacked along the axis. (The carbon sleeve is a significant departure from the prior mechanical design.) These thin sheets themselves provide the tensile strength against centrifugal forces. Also, I think that all three motors in the Model S are IPMSynRM (Internal Permanent Magnet Synchronous Reluctance Motor) - they combine the effects of the reluctance geometry of the steel rotor body with those of permanent magnets embedded within that body under the influence of the rotating magnetic field generated by the changing current in the stator coils.

    Which model of Tesla’s production quality has reached - six sigma - or not?

    Just waiting for a true super car from Tesla, just to be sure.

    The 4680 cell has an aging issue? Premature aging of thermal and electrical conduction performance. Per Tesla’s patent, 4680 cell removed the “single welded tab” in the tab-less design. Eliminating the tab breaks the circuit between electrode and output terminal - cell wall. To undo the break, Tesla employ multi flap (are copper flaps protruded from periphery of electrode) to complete the circuit plus pretension induced in the cell capping process. If all goes well these flaps provide thermal and electrical conduction as expected starting from the delivery day, and will begin aging as soon as it is put on use under inertial and thermal shock in road. Why? It the flaps are annealed soft copper that can’t flex back to its original shape once deformed by inertial shocks. One by one begins to disconnect from the cell wall, until only one flap left in circuit. From there on further inertial shock will cause momentary open circuit at the cell wall. Leaving thermal and electrical conduction worse than cells with one welded tab. All chemistry improvement in the 4680 will be gated by those soft copper flaps. Failing to addressing those issue will let Tesla lost all their claims on 4680 cell. Cells that degrade below Panasonic 18650 and pouch cells. Almost all Tesla’s competitions use pouch format. If the thermal management in model3 isn’t implemented with 4680 cell pack can degrade chemical performance for modelY and future models on 4680.

    Any bullet would disagree. Maybe not possible for rubber on street.

    CORRECTION: All 3 engines are identical, which have both Permanent Magnets and Reluctance on the same engine.

    Not a "breakthrough", but an achievement. Laying to rest the myth that "the batteries overheat". I've seen a report by Warren Reddich who was told by a Tesla employee, at the event, that the issue wasn't the cells, but the electronics overheating. That Tesla has achieved Plaid performance with the "old" cell format, AND to the extent that there was insufficient difference to justify the Plaid Plus (for road use), is impressive and removes another layer of FUD.
