Watch Tesla Model 3 Performance Take Down Ford Mustang 5.0

SEP 19 2018 BY STEVEN LOVEDAY 12

The Tesla Model 3 Performance continues to impress on and off the track.

We really can’t wait until we have a long list of incoming Tesla Model 3 Performance track videos to share, because it appears that’s where this car truly shines. It’s really only a matter of time, as many more people are taking delivery as we write. In the meantime, we’re seeing more and more videos of the dual-motor, all-wheel-drive performance Model 3 at the drag strip. In fact, the new, popular Tesla sedan’s racing coverage is currently overshadowing its quicker sibling, the Tesla Model S.

In this most recent video, we just get a short glimpse of the Model 3 Performance racing a Ford Mustang 5.0. That’s really all we need to see how much quicker the Tesla is off the line, along with the fact that it stays ahead of the Ford to the race’s completion. Both cars hit a top speed of about 114 mph in this quarter-mile sprint, but the Model 3 wins it by more than a second.

When the Tesla Model 3 first came to market, many people didn’t consider that it may become a drag strip contender or a sought-after track car. Much to everyone’s surprise, it’s proving naysayers wrong.

What’s the “Price as tested”?

Meh……..

In drag racing it’s “Run what you brung.” A loss is a loss. No excuses such as “if I had more money”.

At least the racing stripes and engine growl account for some Mustang Sally Swagger!

Great accomplishment yet the Mustang can be had for around $35K…A Shelby or ZL1 is far more apples to apples in terms of price and performance…

Drive ’em both around for year, going to the track, and doing some street racing.
Then come back and compare fuel bills.
If you add in all the money you won, beating the stuffing out of Mustangs, you will easily be compensated for the initial outlay. Also you will get more girls, and that acne will clear up.

Not $35k, as in this modified car.

Lol the mustang sounds so pathetic

Yes like it’s groveling for mercy.

Shakespeare said it best (as often) “a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing”

M3 won easily…and with barely a whisper of tyre noise.

This is amusing; electric cars are supposed to save the planet and are not intended for drag racing.

Once again GO TESLA GO DESTROY DIRTY GAS GUZZLERS CONNECT THE DOTS ON CLEAN AIR WAKE UP EARTHLINGS CO2.EARTH
