Tesla is one of the most well known names in the modern day automotive industry. It is the leading automotive manufacturer for battery powered cars. Yes, that means zero gasoline usage. It is without question that the evil genius behind this company, Elon Musk, has done anything except the abnormal. Their brand released their first car in 2008 and today in 2020 it is one of the most popular and practical options you can get on the market. Tesla’s have entered the market from the top down as they are quickly on their way to meet the $20,000 to $30,000 price mark, but their most popular models are $35,000 and above.

The brand is most noted by their quirky leader, their long range capabilities under one singular charge, their surprising performance aspects, and their cutting edge technology. Currently, the Model S holds the record for the longest range on one charge which was 370 miles, but Elon claims 400 miles is coming soon and also claims that the coming soon 2nd gen Tesla Roadster will not only be the fastest production car, but it will also have a range of 620 miles which is absurd.

  • Tesla Model X ————————————— Starting MSRP $81,000

Tesla vs. Porsche Taycan Race, Top Gear Controversy

Top Gear (British car show) recently ran a drag race on a dry road between the two quickest/fastest EVs in the world. And in their video the Porsche Taycan Turbo S won over the Tesla Model S Performance. However, there are some notable problems with the video. First, it looks like they were NOT racing against the current Model S Performance (Raven) version, but the previous Model S, and even so the race was very close.
