A Tesla rep told me that they list very conservative 0-60 times so insurance companies don't jack up the prices too much. He claims that the 0-60 time on the 85 and 60 models is basically identical and hovers around 5.1 seconds in good conditions. Of course the website tells a different story. But can anyone corroborate this story? Is there basically no difference in how the two models accelerate and perform except for range?
