Musk is splashing the cash trying to show the world that the Tesla S is better than the electric Porsche, so he has sent a Tesla S to Germany to try for the Nürburgring record.

The nearest charging point is in the nearby town but it is not a “supercharger” so would take too long to recharge the car.

The simple solution for Musk was to install a supercharger at the circuit … powered by a hunking big diesel generator he brought with him in a container from the US.

Together with the Tesla a container from America arrived at the ring. Its content: a large diesel engine. This generates the power to charge the Model S. Since it is noisy day and night, it has already attracted the annoyance of local residents. However, Tesla has reacted and unceremoniously installed a Supercharger on the ring. However, he obviously first of all serves his own needs as he stands in the area of ??the rollercoaster behind a locked gate immediately next to the start and finish straight of the GP course. So not accessible to Tesla customers.

Behind the ‘clean, green’ image there is always another story. Whether it is on the Nürburgring, the Ngauranga Gorge or the Northern Motorway, the dirty truth for virtue-signalling electric car drivers is that the energy has to come from somewhere.

Currently, it appears a diesel generator is powering one Tesla at the Nürburgring track.
