Video: Tesla Model S Takes On Pontiac GTO at the Drag Strip
Unfortunately, there’s no timeslip to let us know how quickly either of these two vehicles ripped down the strip.
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?
