Tesla Fanboys - the Model S is NOT Faster Than the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
Let me start by saying that this isn’t meant to question the impressiveness of the Tesla Model S sedan. After all, the Model S has proven itself to be the best full electric luxury sport sedan in the world. Granted, it is the only full electric luxury sport sedan in the world but whether by default or based on its own merits – the Tesla Model S is unquestionably the best at what it is intended to do. Also, I’m not trying to downplay the incredible advancements in the world of the electric vehicle market or the impressive levels of performance offered by the Model S. While I am more of a fan of the American V8, I have two electric golf carts so I understand the freedom from foreign oil which leads Tesla Model S owners to be so passionate about their car. Granted, the world of drag racing is probably foreign to the vast majority of Tesla fans but getting to the finish line first means that it won a race – not that it is the faster car. If we were to follow the idea that a car getting to line first is “faster” then my electric golf cart could beat a Corvette Stingray as well if the driver was tardy enough on the start. Heck, someone on foot could outrun the Corvette if the Corvette driver wasn’t paying attention…but much like this video, that doesn’t prove anything.
