It’s remarkable to see that Model S catch air because it’s a chonker of a car. It weighs in at almost 5,000 pounds or, to use more scientific units, two 2007 Honda Fits. Thanks to its battery pack, its center of gravity is low and near the middle. In fact, it’s a touch tail-heavy, with 52% of its weight in the back. How does a car that heavy get off the ground in the first place and, with a heavier tail, go nose-down during its ignominious flight?
