Watch Tesla Model 3 Set 1/4-Mile Record From DragTimes

MAY 4 2018 BY STEVEN LOVEDAY 2

Check out this higher quality video of the Tesla Model 3 setting its newest quarter-mile record.

We recently shared a video from JR Garage (linked below) showing the Tesla Model 3 beating its own quarter-mile record. The first time we saw Tesla’s small sedan attempt the metric, it was pit against a McLaren 720S, which is not anything close to reasonable competition. Nonetheless, the Model 3 pulled off an impressive 13.58 seconds at 102.04 mph.

The Tesla Model 3 is no performance car, and the current Long Range configuration only has one motor that powers the rear wheels. One would assume that it wouldn’t fare very well in this type of setting. The time stated above came as a surprise for sure, and then it got even better. With JR Garage behind the wheel, the baby Tesla pulled off 13.33 seconds at 104.07 mph.

Sure, there are many quicker cars, but this is quite a feat. Now, you get to see it again in typical DragTimes glory, with better quality and a new angle. We can’t wait until the dual-motor all-wheel drive Model 3 arrives to strut its stuff.

Video Description via DragTimes on YouTube:

We attend Streetspeed717s YouTube Callout event with a 2016 Porsche GT3RS and run some heads up racings against a 2018 Corvette ZR1 and more. Also included are Dodge Demons and a Tesla Model 3 setting a new record.

If you didn’t see it the first time or follow the link provided above, below is the original video from a different angle:

Range: 310 miles; 136/123 mpg-e. Still maintaining a long waiting list as production ramps up slowly, the new compact Tesla Model 3 sedan is a smaller and cheaper, but no less stylish, alternative, to the fledgling automaker’s popular Model S. This estimate is for a Model 3 with the “optional” (at $9,000) long-range battery, which is as of this writing still the only configuration available. The standard battery, which is expected to become available later in 2018, is estimated to run for 220 miles on a charge.

Wait a minute, wasn’t this posted before?

Yes, this site is all about the Benjamins. They literally can’t help themselves.

I think I’m done with this place for awhile.
