Watch The Tesla Model S Beat A Corvette In A Drag Race

Posted: Updated:

Go, Model S, go!

The new guard battles the old guard for performance supremacy in this video from automotive enthusiast site Drag Times. The website took the top-dog Tesla Model S P85 and put it up against the all-new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, with the available six-speed automatic transmission, in a quarter-mile drag race at Palm Beach International Raceway in Jupiter, Fla.

With a 44-horsepower deficit and significantly more weight to drag around than the 460-horsepower Corvette, the Tesla still manages to take the ‘Vette by a hair in the first race that appears in the video. But the Chevy fires back in race two in an attempt to save face. Will it? Or will the Tesla win again and convince us all that electric is the future for performance vehicles?
