Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted Saturday that deliveries of the automaker’s Model S Plaid would be delayed until June 10 because the car “has to be modified for another week”.
“This car feels like a spaceship,” tweeted Musk, who is also CEO of SpaceX. “Words can do the limbic resonance. “
The company has been teasing the Plaid since 2019, and Musk tweeted on May 20 that Tesla would hold a delivery event at its Fremont, California plant on June 3.
Delivery of Model S Plaid rescheduled to June 10. Still needs to be adjusted for another week.
This car feels like a spaceship. Words cannot describe the limbic resonance.

Tesla showed the Model S Plaid as part of its Battery Day presentation last September. It’s a step up from Tesla’s ridiculous trim level and can reach 0-60mph in less than two seconds and reach top speeds of up to 200mph, according to Musk. Current specifications on Tesla’s website show that the Plaid has a range of between 390 and 412 miles, with the forthcoming Plaid Plus at a range of more than 520 miles. Prices on Tesla’s website as of Saturday show the purchase price of the Model S Plaid starting at $ 119,990 and the Plaid Plus at $ 149,990. The Plaid Plus is listed as ‘available mid 2022’.
The Plaid made its debut at the Laguna Seca racetrack in September 2019, where it completed the course in 1 minute and 36 seconds.
