Tesla Model S Takes on Corvette Stingray at the Strip

Drag Race

This unconventional head-to-head comes right down to the wire.

Neither of these cars’ strengths lies in straight line speed, but it’s an interesting match-up nonetheless. Battling it out on a quarter-mile stretch of the Palm Beach International Raceway is a Tesla Model S P85 – the sportiest variant of California’s favorite EV – and a 2014 Corvette Stingray with the Z51 pack and a six-speed automatic box. Two runs were made and while there’s a winner, the result is tantalizingly close.

Check the video to see how these cars from two very different worlds have almost identical straight-line performance.
