Tesla Model S P100D Embarrasses Muscle Cars At Drag Strip...Again

I know we post a lot of videos with Teslas dominating at the drag strip, but you have to admit, it's pretty funny watching a bunch of muscle cars get smoked by a car that doesn't even make any noise.

Muscle car fanatics often are, shall we say, a crowd that likes to preen and primp over their cars. It's the meathead group of car culture (I should know, I'm one of them). Go to any muscle car meet and you'll find a crowd where everything is determined by the size of your ego...I mean engine.

In waltzes an electric car and destroys everyone. As a guy that loves muscle cars more than anything else, even I have to find the humor in this situation. And let's be honest, this guy's Model S is incredible.

It is completely gutted but still weighs in at 4,460 lbs, which is 635 lbs more than my big, heavy Mustang GT (3,825 lbs). The fact that this P100D can launch the way it does with that kind of junk in the trunk only on electric motors is amazing.

The Tesla did eventually lose to a Cadillac CTS-V and a Camaro ZL1, just for your information.

  • However...all the internal combustion engine cars have the ability to upgrade and improve. Electricity and electric motors can only do so much. It's fun to watch the coal powered Tesla run but...it has limitations at the end of the day.
