The Model X also has the more exotic doors of the two cars. Coincidence? Probably not.
It’s fun to pit new and old versions of cars against each other to see just how much progress has been made. If anything, it gives us a good example of what new performance figures mean since sometimes it’s hard to visualize numbers. That’s why it was only a matter of time before someone decided to race a Tesla against a Ferrari again. We always hear about how quick the Tesla’s acceleration is, but now the bulky and seemingly slow Model X has a chance to show that it means business.
Watch the SUV not only beat the Ferrari off the line, but do so by a wide margin. And that's not the first time we've seen this sort of humiliation.
