Musk Says Tesla Model S Plaid Delivery Delayed a Week

The Model S Plaid, the automaker’s quickest electric vehicle to date, was scheduled to be unveiled at a June 3 delivery event for customers at its factory in Fremont, California.

Musk, who also leads Space Exploration Technologies Corp., said the car “feels like a spaceship” and that “words cannot describe the limbic resonance.” In his original tweet announcing the event, he said the Model S Plaid was the fastest production car ever, capable of going from zero to 60 miles per hour in under 2 seconds.
