Tesla Model 3 vs Firebird Trans Am: Which one wins in a 1/4 mile drag race?
The Tesla Model 3 is the new budget car from the electric car-maker that previously only produced top-end luxury EVs.
It is the car that is intended to take Tesla - and the electric car itself - mainstream. Where once EVs were the preserve of enthusiasts and the wealthy only, the Model 3 is Elon Musk's attempt to bring the electric car to the masses.
Unlike previous Teslas it was designed with affordability in mind, more so than performance, but as an EV it will have instant torque anyway when compared to petrol-powered cars.
So how does the cheapest car in the Tesla range compare to an internal combustion engined performance car like a Firebird Trans Am? Which one do you think will win?
