The Roadster has a supposed 200kw battery, but there is no way the test car they used had anywhere near that. They also claim that the car has 10000Nm of Torque, which at 5000 rpm is 7021 horsepower. That claim is dubious at best, but around the track, the more than 5000lbs this thing weights, and the amount of heat generation, this car will quickly become dangerous to drive, or slow to SUV type speeds like the Model S does. So you probably get one or two, ~2 second accelerations, then software limiting kicks in, and there goes your $250,000 in performance, as a base 911 smokes you at the track.
