The reason for such statements is that many of the cars the Model S has beaten time and time again are high-dollar sports cars or even supercars; some with just two seats. These aren't practical vehicles, but instead, vehicles built specifically for enthusiasts who crave dynamic performance.
With that said, what if we simply pit the Model S against another, reasonably practical, four-door luxury model.
For the 2019 model year, Mercedes added a four-door AMG coupe to its GT lineup. It offers two roomy rear seats and a decent-sized trunk. It's not nearly as practical or spacious as the Model S, but you get the point.
The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 Coupe starts at $136,500 prior to destination and fees. The Model S P100D is no longer available. However, the similar — but much-improved — Model S Performance comes in right around $100K.
Check out the video to see how this four-door battle plays out.

It’s fantastic to see so many supportive comments for our videos but, with the quality we like to produce, they are extremely expensive to make so it would be great if you could head to Patreon to see what we can offer you, in return for you helping us make a lot more!
Paul and Tiff get together for another Drag Race with the Tesla Model S and the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 4MATIC+ 4-Door Coupé. The results are not completely what you would expect, or are they?
