According to Tesla's official website, the Plaid Track Package includes several upgrades that aim to improve the Model S' speed, handling, and braking capabilities.

Coming in June 2023, the Plaid Track Package's most notable feature is its claimed ability to achieve a top speed of 200 mph. While this is an impressive feat, it's worth noting that the Model S Plaid, even without the package, already has a top speed of 162 mph. Therefore, it remains to be seen how significant this performance increase will be for the average driver.


A carbon ceramic brake kit package is also available as an option, which will cost you $15,000. Alternatively, you can opt for the brake kit and a performance-optimized wheel and tire package for $20,000. However, if you only want to upgrade your vehicle's wheels and tires, you can do so for $6,000
