It doesn't limit it that much, maybe 10% or so. This isn't unique to Tesla from my understanding, and even an ICE is naturally limited. When pushed hard the engine might have a life of hours, not months of continuous run time. For example, unlikely a street engine would make 24 hours at a race track, but could easily make 2500 hours (150,000 miles at 60 mph) driven gently. Doing Ludicrous launches all the time is a good way to shorten the life of your battery and drive train.

Supercars are generally done to get interest from the press, but I agree, they have become less interesting, at least to me, as I could never really buy one. I think it is time to mix it up, as there are many 1000 hp cars being shown. Loses its appeal.
