|Higher performance Porsche-destroying Model S coming next fall|
Elon Musk says the production Tesla Model S Plaid will seat 7, crush the Porsche Taycan on the Nurburgring and feature larger rear seats.
This comes just after the news of the Model S Plaid beating the Taycan on the Ring. According to Musk, the updated Model S Plaid will go into production around October or November of next year. The production version is expected to be even faster than the prototypes we keep seeing out on the 'Ring.
When asked about the seating for seven, Musk commented that the rear-facing seats will stay, but noted that they will be larger and more accommodating.

It’s a start. We expect these track times to be beaten by the actual production 7 seat Model S Plaid variant that goes into production around Oct/Nov next year.
