Even though it’s a 4,500 pound, electrically powered family sedan, the Tesla Model S is no slouch, especially when equipped with the 85kWh Performance package. That’s why when one lines up at the drag strip for a quarter mile showdown with a 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, we know were in for a good race.
Drag Times recently captured the two going head to head at Palm Springs International Raceway in Jupiter FL. Although the Model S is a little down on power compared to the Z51 ‘Vette, 416 horsepower to the Corvette’s 460, it’s hard to beat the Tesla’s instant, relentless torque delivery in a short drag race.
So who came out on top? We won’t spoil it for you. Find out the answer in the video just below.
