Tesla is confident it can beat Porsche's Nurburgring time — but not this month

The rumors claiming Tesla would try setting a Nürburgring record for production electric cars on Sept. 21 were false. Posting on its official Twitter account, the company confirmed its team has gone back to California in order to return to the drawing board and set an even better time in October. Tesla wrote that data from its tests suggests the Model S is capable of lapping the 'Ring in 7 minutes and 20 seconds.
