Most all cars will not perform as well in warmer weather. Just like companies advertise cold air intakes to increase horsepower, horsepower will be affected when the ambient temperature is higher. 60-70 degrees is prime for power. Also, now that it is 100 degrees, you are also most likely running your air conditioner which can actually use up to 100 hp.
