Electric Drag Race: Tesla Model S vs. C8 Corvette

January 26th, 2021 | by Jo Borrás

Electric cars are fast. After nearly a decade of watching Tesla after Tesla go up against — and often beat — everything from hyper-expensive Ferraris to motorcycles to other Teslas, that's a well-established fact. Still, it seems that some people will always have to learn their lessons "the hard way."


Tesla Model S Shames Ferrari F12 In A Drag Race (Video)

June 29th, 2020 | by Iqtidar Ali

In the midst of many cool Tesla races, a video clip of a 1/4-mile drag race between a Tesla Model S P100D and Ferrari F12 displays yet another insult to the internal combustion engine — this pricey Italian exotic was at the mercy of an all-electric family sedan. But, there was no mercy


Watch: Tesla Model Y Autopilot On A Race Track

June 16th, 2020 | by Iqtidar Ali

Most often, we see Tesla Autopilot being tested on the highway (or city streets) where there are plenty of clear road markings. However, in a recent video, a bunch of Tesla owners tested Autopilot on a race track driving a Model Y Performance


Ford Mustang GT Burned By Tesla Model 3 SR+ (Video)

November 12th, 2019 | by Cynthia Shahan

Due to instant torque, the ease of moving in front of another driver for a needed lane change is one of the strengths of an electric car. I've left many gas cars far behind simply to ensure I move over to the next lane safely ahead of a stream of traffic


Tesla Model S Plaid Prototype Laps the Nürburgring Nordschleife in 7:13

November 5th, 2019 | by Dr. Maximilian Holland

Respected German publication Auto Motor und Sport is reporting that the Tesla Model S Plaid prototype has been hand-timed lapping the Nordschleife in 7 minutes and 13 seconds, according to the outlet's local source. Adjusting for race-compound tires, this puts the Tesla around 19 seconds ahead of the Taycan Turbo's 7:42 lap time reported by Porsche in August. It's also faster than every gas-powered 4-door series production car 'round the 'ring


Electric Mazda … Porsche vs. Tesla Launchonanza … Gold-Free Perovskite Solar — CleanTechnica Top 20

November 3rd, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Mazda? Mazda? A possibly lame-ass electrification effort from Mazda? Yes, apparently, that was somehow our most popular article of the week last week here on CleanTechnica. Will more than 100,000 people consider — let alone buy — the electric Mazda? I doubt it! But they'll read about it. (Granted, Tina's headline must have been part of the appeal, and I did think from the headline the car was going to be edible in some way.)


Tesla vs Porsche EV Rivalry Accelerates the Death of Fossil Vehicles

September 22nd, 2019 | by Dr. Maximilian Holland

Whilst seemingly irrelevant to everyday driving, the ongoing competition between Tesla and Porsche over EV performance supremacy is quickly demonstrating that fossil sports cars are becoming obsolete — an important symbolic milestone for the EV revolution which will have repercussions in higher volume segments. If Porsche wants its Taycan to keep pace with the Tesla Model S Plaid, Porsche will have to allow it to outperform the company's current flagship Panamera combustion sedan. And that will only highlight the inferiority of fossil vehicles


Porsche Taycan Already Faster Than Panamera Sibling & Other Combustion Peers Around Twisty Race Tracks

September 1st, 2019 | by Dr. Maximilian Holland

Despite not surpassing some of its combustion peers over the full lap of the Nurburgring Nordschleife circuit, a recently released onboard lap video shows that the Porsche Taycan has effectively outperformed its Panamera sibling (and the BMW M5 and M5 Competition) over the twisty first half of the course. This indicates that on the vast majority of the world's race circuits, where mid-speed corners dominate over high speed straightaways, the Taycan will be able to lap faster than the Panamera and similar 4-door saloons, such as the BMW
