At the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) 2017, Faraday Future unveiled FF 91. The start-up firm also claimed that its electric vehicle could accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.39 seconds, which will make it the fastest accelerating production car.

But before the FF91 hits production, Elon Musk came with some upgrades this month to improve the performance of Tesla's top-of-the-range models. With a few software tweaks, the Model S P100D is even more ferocious and faster than the FF91.

The Tesla Racing Channel on YouTube has uploaded a video filmed at a drag strip recently. The Model S P100D in the video has recorded a Vbox verified sprint time of 2.389 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h, i.e, 0.001 second faster than FF 91's claimed time.

The Tesla P100D Model S is also equipped with a bigger battery pack which increases the driving range to an EPA-estimated 504km and 613km on the EU cycle.
