W​atch: Camaro driver provokes a Tesla owner for a drag race

A​nd it doesn't end well

10w ago

While developing Tesla cars, Elon Musk may have envisioned the simultaneous rise of a Tesla car community. He may not have foreseen the dislike and even hatred these EVs incite, mostly from petrolheads. So much that Tesla owners are often provoked for a rapid acceleration test between the lights. Which, for a Camaro owner, ended a lot worse than he would’ve expected.

Posted on Youtube channel ‘racingflorida’ is a video taken from the backseat of a Tesla vehicle. It shows the Tesla driver announcing his car being a Tesla to a fellow passerby in his Camaro and consequently following up with adamant ‘no, no, no’ and 'I don't care' chants.

As the events unfolded, it became clear that the Camaro driver must've been egging the EV driver for a possible rolling drag race between the lights. Even after repeated denial to participate in this speeding-in-traffic-rodeo, the Camaro driver goes full acceleration and rather instantly loses control of his car while looking to avoid the upcoming divider.

Interestingly, the car travels across the width of the street and crashes onto the side of the road. The fossil-fuel-powered vehicle sustains damages while miraculously not damaging any other passing cars in the process. And yet, that doesn’t stop the Camaro driver from revving the engine.

One can hear the Tesla occupants worried about themselves as they demand the driver to drive off from the scene instead of checking on the Camaro. Now, this must’ve been an incident this Tesla driver would share within his community to share some laughs. As for the Camaro driver, you left us petrolheads embarrassed.

    • Maybe if he had at least, like over 350hp, it'd be justifiable, but it's just a clapped out but stock z28
