Whining sound at 60 kw's of power used

Anyone notice a whining sound when you step on the accelerator and cross the 60 kw line. it gets really loud up and until 180 kw.

that's what my son calls 'the cool star trek sound' I think... is it coming from the motor?

Yep, it's a definite squeal that gets masked by the radio most of the time. It's accentuated when the motor is under heavy load. It does have similarities to a "phaser blast" come to think of it.

I actually look forward to making that noise in my P85 regularly. I don't know, it has an almost erotic tone to me... yah, I'm still in the honeymoon stage with my Model S as well! :D
