DragTimes Pits Tesla Model S P100D Versus 1,000 HP Toyota Supra Turbo
12 July 2017 - InsideEVs
The Tesla Model S P100D typically dominates the drag race scene, especially the 1/8- and 1/4-mile, but it’s not often we see the P100D pitted against a car with approximately 1,000 HP.
That's the case here as the Model S P100D lines it up against a modded Toyota Supra with a claimed 1,000 HP.
DragTimes tries to even the event out by performing two races (technically 3), one from a standstill and the other from a rolling start at 50 mph.
Here's a spec rundown for both vehicles (note: actual HP figures for modded Supra are unknown).
In the video you'll see that the Supra doesn't stand a chance from a standstill start. It's no contest as the AWD Tesla blows it aways. From a 50 mph roll though, the Supra fares far better. It quickly catches the Tesla, which gets the initial jump and then accelerates out into the distance in no time.
