Recently, at Palm Beach International Raceway, there was a “Tesla Takeover” event in which the Model S challenged all sorts of formidable cars.
This particular drag race pits the Tesla P85D versus a Porsche 911 Turbo.
Here’s a brief write-up on the race via Evannex:
“Then, we got to see a Tesla P85D race a Porsche 911 Turbo S (Porsche’s top-of-the-line 911 spec) and the owner, Joe, told me that the Porsche owner had a similar optioned car (as his) and yet the Porsche cost over $200,000. The Porsche owner went on to tell Joe that he was “surprised” at how fast the Tesla P85D could go… he was seriously impressed. Then, Daniel, a P85D owner, raced a fellow Standard RWD 85 and left it in the dust. This proves how mighty the P85D is… now we really want to see “insane” vs. “ludicrous” modes in a race, but we’ll have to wait for that one.”
As for times, the 911 Turbo eeks out the win with an 11.0-second run, versus the Tesla at 11.7 seconds.
