Watch: YouTuber Straps Rocket Engines To Tesla Model S

However, YouTuber Warped Perception couldn’t wait any longer, so he built his own. 

Warped Perception mounted three miniature jet engines on the back of his Tesla Model S P85 electric vehicle, right below the spoiler, in a neutral pressure zone.

He said the placement of the engines allows them to be ignited anytime and avoid damage from windmilling.

The second test was a series of 0-60 mph launches. Under electric power, the car achieved 0-60 mph time of 4.38 seconds. He shaved off an entire second at 3.32 seconds with thrusters engaged under full electric power. 

Warped Perception believes with some more fine-tuning, he could make the Tesla run in the low 2 seconds on a 0-60 mph launch.
