This Is What Happens When You Push The Tesla Model S To The Limit

I love the Tesla Model S. It’s a sexy beast that I’d gladly plug into my neighbor’s garage’s power outlet. But what happens when you juice up your futurecar and then take for a long distance journey?

What happens when your 260+ mile range is down to 0? Does it suddenly stop? Do you get catapulted through the windshield as if you were just hit by a team of oxen head-on?
