Watch Tesla Model X P100D Crush Blue Chevy Corvette Z06

APR 20 2018 BY ERIC LOVEDAY 12

By now, we’re all accustomed to seeing the mighty Tesla Model S blow away all comers, but the appearance of the Model X on the track is still rather rare.

It’s a porky, three-row SUV after all. Not the type of vehicle you’d expect to go up against on the track.

Even more uncommon is seeing the Model X P100D put on such a show against what some might consider worthy competition.

We stated it before and we’ll say it again:

It’s no contest.

Not even close.

The sad Chevy Corvette Z06, this time dressed in blue paint rather than red, is simply no match for the big three-row electric SUV.

This version of the Model X weighs some 5,531 pounds, yet it zips from 0 to 60 MPH in 2.9 seconds, which is more than quick enough to put the Corvette Z06 behind it in a flash. We chalk it up to AWD, but you be the judge.

So, the next time you decide to pull up next to an SUV for a race, make sure you look to see the badge and be sure it isn’t a Tesla, and certain it’s not the Model X P100D.

Put them on a road course.

It would actually be quite interesting to see a side by side start of the Model X and the Corvette on Laguna Sega and then do 1 lap. Model X will take the start, but when will Corvette do the overtake?

Why would anyone race a family SUV on a track? CONNECT THE DOTS ON CLEAN AIR WAKE UP

Agreed. Let’s see these cars mix it up on the track. We all know electrics are the future, but let’s see piston machines get their last hurrah. As Chris Harris alluded, “It’s a soundtrack I’ll long remember once they’re gone from the track.”

These videos are so pointless. Let’s see a real race between the two on a track.

Why is it pointless? It shows a certain metric which is quickness over a distance that results in one car being shown as being quicker than another. By the time they are at the end of that distance they are travelling 50 mph over the highest legal speed limit on any freeway in the US anyway.

In fact I would say this type of race is more relevant to the average car owner than a track race since most people use their cars daily in situations that are start and stop surface street scenarios and somewhat straight line freeway driving. Hardly ever does the average person benefit with a track performance oriented car for daily driving scenarios but they do benefit from off the line quickness and superb rolling acceleration of the Tesla.
