Tesla today introduced a new version of its Model S sedan. It’s called the P100D, and it can go from 0-60 MPH in 2.5 seconds. Tesla says that makes this the third-fastest production car ever, behind the Ferrari LaFerrari ($1.4 million) and the Porsche 918 Spyder ($845,000).

Both those cars are way more expensive than the Tesla Model S P100D, which starts around $135,000. But while the list of cars that are faster than the P100D is quite short, the list of cars that the Tesla is quicker than is quite long.
