Truth be told, we had started wondering when somebody would bring a Tesla Model S back under the drag racing sportlights, now that the official adventures are on the break (no more velocity updates for now).
So, here we are, bringing you the Model S driver who decided to put his electric sedan to racing use, unluckily choosing the street as the battleground.
The races we are looking at don’t involve the P100D range-topper, with P90D being used instead. The South Florida owners of a dual-motor Tesla challenges the pair of internal-combustion contraptions.
The first competitor of the electric vehicle was the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE, whose driver had turned to the aftermarket world in search for the extra muscle.
As such, the 6.2-liter heart of the Chevy uses E85, featuring the high-flow air intake and the vicious cam setup. And yes, the Camaro spits fire like a dragon, with such the event taking place during the battle with the Tesla.
As for the second suck-squeeze-bang-blow animal that fought the P90D, we are talking about a Porsche Cayenne Turbo S.
The owner of the Zuffenhausen SUV had also taken his vehicle down the aftermarket path, with a twin-turbo 4.8-liter V8 of the Porsche having been gifted with the custom exhaust and an ECU remap.
When it came to the Camaro, a rear-wheel-drive nature of the muscle beast meant the races involved the rolling starts. However, the fights between the Tesla Model S in the Porsche inclsuded both standing and rolling take-offs.
