CLOSE, BUT NO FLYING CAR: The quickest SUV Motor Trend has ever tested.

The Tesla Model X P90D in Ludicrous mode ripped its way to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds and to the end of the quarter mile in 11.7 seconds at 116.0 mph. That beats out many high-performance SUVs including the 2015 BMW X6 M (3.7 sec; 12.1 sec @ 114.3 mph), the 2016 Mercedes-AMG GLE63 Coupe S (3.9 sec; 12.5 sec @ 110.5 mph), and both the 2015 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S and 2015 Porsche Macan Turbo (which posted nearly identical numbers of 4.2 sec; 12.9 sec @ 107.4 mph and 106.2 mph, respectively).

Nice — but that’s no SUV; it’s a crossover.
