When you hear of a full-sized EV sedan almost beating the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 in the quarter-mile your mind nearly stumbles at the thought. But the Tesla Model S P90D (Ludicrous Mode) means business.
We’ve seen what the Model S is capable of at the strip before, so we weren’t all that surprised by its time. In fact, this isn’t the first time a Model S takes on a Corvette. It’s just hard to conceptualize the fact that it can nearly match the caliber of the performance-driven Chevrolet Corvette Z06, especially the most recent iteration in the C7.
Granted, this is just a straight line. At a circuit track we have no doubt that C7 Z06 would put the smackdown on the Tesla (with the right driver). Even so, we’re wondering what Corvette enthusiasts think after seeing videos like these. Do you shrug off the apples to oranges comparison, or maybe reconsider what you thought you knew about EVs?
