Tesla (TSLA) has finally unveiled the goodies that can unleash the full potential of a Model S Plaid. Tesla enthusiasts have been waiting for this option since the electric automaker delivered the first Plaid Model S in June 2021.

The automaker is now offering a hardware and software bundle called the Track Package. The Tesla Model S Plaid Track Pack unlocks track-level handling and the much-awaited 200 mph (~322 km/h) top speed.

Without the Track Package, Tesla has software-limited the top speed of a Tesla Model S Plaid to around 162 mph or 260 km/h (watch on Autobahn).

Tesla Model S Plaid Track Package appeared on the official Tesla online shop yesterday and has already gone popular among the Tesla enthusiast community.

Tesla wrote the following description of the Model S Plaid Track Package:

Designed for the ultimate track experience, the Model S Plaid Track Package delivers high-speed stability, maximum cornering force and repeatable stopping power during high-performance driving while unlocking a top speed of 200 mph.

The Track Package includes aluminum forged wheels, track-ready tires and brake fluid, new carbon-silicon carbide rotors, and one-piece forged calipers with high-performance pads.

Our rotors feature continuous-fiber technology and are constructed in a unique 3D matrix to add strength and manage heat more effectively. For additional durability, a ceramic friction layer covers the entire rotor surface to reduce brake dust, corrosion and wear while also improving pedal feel for daily driving.

The stock brake calipers of Tesla Model S Plaid have long been a target of criticism by owners and enthusiasts. The braking performance of the car is not at par with these stock brakes, especially on a race track.

Tesla Model S Plaid stock brake calipers are too small for full-throttle experiments with track-level braking.

Although the larger carbon ceramic brakes were available from Tesla’s online shop, they cost a hefty $20,000. Now in the same price range ($15K – $20K), Tesla is offering the entire Track Package including wheels, tires, single-piece forged brake calipers, brake rotors, brake fluid, and the software update.

The availability of the Tesla Model S Plaid Track Package will begin in June 2023 and it can only be ordered by Model S Plaid owners via the Tesla Mobile App.

In addition to the hardware components, Model S Plaid Track Package also includes customized Track Mode software by Tesla.

Tesla Model S Plaid has been conquering dragstrips since its launch. It will be worth watching the track performance of this luxury family sedan with the new Track Package.

However, with 3rd-party customizations such as Unplugged Performance, Tesla Model S Plaid has already conquered the likes of Pikes Peak and Laguna Seca.
