Woah! Tesla Model S smokes Porsche in drag race

I bet you didn’t see that coming. The surprise factor of the Porsche falling short to the Tesla Model S was great in itself, but the only thing that made it even better was the Tesla driver’s incredulous and victorious laugh at the end.

The video is taken from the view of the Tesla and shows the Porsche following close behind.

The two vehicles were clearly comparing their power, which was seeming to go well for them until the Telsa took a sharp turn and the Porsche underestimated its ability to follow.

As we watch the Porsche’s attempt to keep up with the Tesla, we can see that instead of it prevailing, as to be expected, the Porsche instead spins out and comes to a stop in the middle of the street.

The boisterous laugh of the Tesla driver appeared to be as surprised as anyone else but that didn’t stop the Tesla driver from being completely triumphant in his moment glory.

Who else agrees that Tesla needs a new slogan and it should definitely be, “Because Porsches are overrated.”?

    What a ridiculous article. The Tesla wasn’t racing the Porsche. The Porsche was behind the Tesla in the same lane and didn’t know how to manage the horsepower around the corner or the car in general. It was probably stolen. The Tesla would have spun out too with an idiot driver behind the wheel.

    Teslas are amazing – fully expecting to see the number of them in Aus increase dramatically over the next few years.
