Dont know why the non kickdown time of 11 seconds is advertised as the 0-60 when it does 0-60 in 9 seconds using kickdown mode.

I think it should be officially updated because it may attract more people, not only that but it actually does it 2 seconds quicker than advertised so dont know why its downplayed.

If they told you it did 0-60 in 8 seconds and yours took 9, you'd be standing in the service bay demanding a new battery and motors as yours must be defective.  If they tell you it takes 11 seconds and yours only does it in 11 when it's cold outside, they're off the hook and nothing's wrong.....you're thrilled at 9 seconds and ignore the warped battery plates from operating into a virtual short every time you do this stupid trick that will destroy the car.  At 9 seconds, you'll also keep quiet about it being DEAD after the 2nd or 3rd time you short the $15,000 battery pack trying to make it something it's not.....I'm sure the computer notes these hot rod tricks so when the battery pack croaks they can call it "abuse" and stick you with the big bill....
