Tesla Model 3 Performance On Track With Ferrari, BMW, Nio, Nissan, MB-AMG

FEB 1 2019 BY STEVEN LOVEDAY 15

This is no drag race, since the Tesla Model 3 Performance has praiseworthy track chops.

The above video is just a short teaser of the real deal, which we’ve embedded below. This Tesla Model 3 Performance with Track Mode joins some tough competition in Shanghai, China. For years, we’ve shared a multitude of videos showing off the ludicrous acceleration of the Tesla Model S and X. While the videos were hugely popular, there were always complaints that the cars were only showcased driving in a straight line.

Fast forward to today and the Model 3 Performance with Track Mode fills that void for Tesla.

The Model 3 has proven that it can handle the twisty track, along with having some pretty impressive acceleration. Dial it up a notch with the Performance variant and it’s considerably better. Mix in a little Track Mode and we’ve got ourselves a car that can hang with the big boys.

Tesla comes in third of seven…

Lose to Ferrari and GTR? 3rd isn’t bad given competition. What was last?

4 to 7 are: MB C63, BMW M3, NIO ES8, BYD唐DM.

I was skimming through the video, GTR blasting around with a purpose, 448 zipping around like a high tech dragonfly, then I paused on the BYD… LOL!

Most of the video describes the driving experience of each car. Tesla 3 is an AWD and feels more like the GTR. At the limit, the car starts to have a very gentle oversteer, which is quite friendly for inexperience driver giving the driver plenty of time to countersteer.
All the RWD cars have an huge disadvantage, because the track temps are so slow. Nevertheless, Ferrari managed ahead of the AWD competitors, which is outstanding.

These are comments from the video. Not mine.

Cool to see some comparisons with the NIO and BYD. I am very curious to see how these cars stack up with the EVs that are available in the US and Europe.

Would have been good to note that this is not in English.

But its sooooooo ugly.

Did they use the stock tires?

They are racing EV SUVs against sports cars?! LOL ICE insecurity must be high.

Is that China Red?

It looks like in the end of the vid they sum up that the model 3 performance is the best bang for the performance buck…which is amazing for only existing for a few months. Just wait till a couple years from now n the Tesla nerds give that trim even more power n handling performance. All in a luxury sedan for less than half the price of most of the other competitors. Remarkable!

I look forward to seeing the bad ass Tesla roadster 2.0 torch these Dino mobiles next year.
Under 60 sec for a lap time??

Racing in -5C or 23 degrees F? Model 3 do better in higher temp or helped by this?

Guessing the didn’t use the better trac tires that Randy Pobst uses at Laguna Seca on the Model 3 to get better times. What matters is the Model 3 spanked the M3 by 4 seconds.
