Watch the ultimate Tesla drag race between the entire S,3,X,Y lineup



Elon Musk is a fan and inventor of tech easter eggs inspired by the arcade video games that influenced his childhood era. When Tesla Model S first launched in 2012 no one except him knew what the Tesla lineup nomenclature would look like in the future.

But with the passage of time, it turned out to be a funny reference to a basic human instinct — Model S, 3, X, Y go to the dragstrip against each other in the latest video by an automotive enthusiast YouTube channel named Throttle House.

All of the Tesla cars taking part in this competition are the ‘Performance’ variant of each model, so we can guess it would be a good drag race.

Although with the Cheetah Stance, a Tesla Model S Performance Raven can go from 0-60 mph in just 2.3 seconds, let’s see a comparative chart of basic performance figures of these cars to see the difference on paper.

As expected, Model S won both the races including the rolling start, it is the quickest production sedan on this planet right now electric and internal combustion combined.

However, other Teslas also gave it a tough time, Model Y being the slowest of this lot remained at the last position but its competitors were fierce. We recently saw the Model Y challenging a Lamborghini Murcielago on the dragstrip and the result was surprising.
