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.)

October 30th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

Some of Tesla's fastest all-electric sedans recently faced down a powerful contender on an abandoned airport runway (turned into a drag strip). The contender? The feared Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. Racers call it the F12B — a 730 hp beast fitted with a 6.3L V12 engine


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


Tesla Model 3 Performance Crushes Fossil BMW M3 Around Race Track

April 25th, 2019 | by Dr. Maximilian Holland

Top Gear magazine has track tested the Tesla Model 3 Performance head to head against fossil fans' favorite sports saloon, the BMW M3. The track times were conducted on the 2 mile Thunderhill Raceway Park West circuit, with the Tesla coming in a significant 2 seconds ahead of the (more expensive) BMW. Fossils must now accept all-round inferiority in the performance realm

Tesla Model 3 Racer Beats Gas-Powered Cars (#CleanTechnica Interview)

September 11th, 2018 | by Jake Richardson

In this YouTube video, you see a Tesla Model 3 easily beating a number of gas-powered cars in several races, but who is the driver? The Model 3 was referred to on Teslarati as being "rather mysterious," but with a little help from YouTube and Twitter, it's clear the driver was Alex Munoz, who is from San Diego. Recently, he purchased a Model 3 Performance. He answered some questions for CleanTechnica about owning and driving the Model


Mountain Pass Performance Unlocks Tesla Model 3 “Track Mode,” Shatters Track Record — #CleanTechnica Exclusive

July 31st, 2018 | by Kyle Field

Sasha Anis and his crew of tuners at Mountain Pass Performance may be known for their big brake kits, coilovers, and suspension mods for the Tesla Model 3, but today, they took the wraps off their latest and perhaps greatest achievement: disabling Electronic Stability Control (SC) and the Traction Control System (TCS) without disabling the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) on the Model 3.
