Unfortunately, there's no timeslip to let us know how quickly either of these two vehicles ripped down the strip.

Model S Versus GTO

Model S Versus GTO

Fortunately, that doesn't matter.

Of interest here is how quickly the Tesla Model S gets off the line.

The Pontiac GTO is a worthy competitor to the Model S (P85 version seen here), but it's obvious that the GTO just doesn't have the low-end grunt to keep even with the Model S as soon as the light goes green.

What this brief video really show us is that, in everyday driving, the Model S would feel much quicker than the GTO.

In fact, we're still not sure we've seen a video where the Model S gets beat by any vehicle for the first 50 to 100 feet.   Have you?
