Tesla Model S Leaves Showboating Porsche Cayman GT4 Spinning
If you want to challenge another driver to a race or to show someone up, make sure your car is up to the challenge. One driver learned the hard way that even a supercar such as a Porsche Cayman GT4 is no match against a Tesla Model S.
A video posted recently on Instagram by "Tesliza" featured a Tesla Ludicrous Model S P90D being driven by someone who goes by "Tech_Guy." The Tesla Model S owner and a friend were driving to the PML Quick Strike, a local car show for modified vehicles when they noticed the Porsche Cayman GT4 "riding [his] bumper." The other driver aggressively tailed the Tesla Model S in a gesture considered as a challenge to race.
When the light turned green, the Tesla Model S "took off quickly" and the Porsche Cayman GT4 followed immediately. As BGR noted, the Porsche plays catch-up with the Tesla Model S before it embarrassingly lost control and spun around while taking a sharp right turn.
The Drive noted that the Porsche in the video is one of the most track-friendly models from the iconic car manufacturer. Despite this fact, the Porsche failed miserably. BGR pointed out that the driver of the Porsche could be a bit raw and "wasn't skilled enough to handle a turn." Whether that's the case or not, the Tesla Model S showed what it is capable of doing.
The Tesla Model S continued speeding away as the driver laughed at the Porsche Cayman GT4. Tech-Guy claimed on his Instagram account that he always drove his Tesla Model S in Ludicrous Mode and that he had a 0 to 60 time of 2.63 seconds.
The Tesla Model S in the now viral video is a Ludicrous P90D, as mentioned earlier. That means it is a tad slower than the P100D, the flagship from Tesla. The Tesla Model S 100D is capable of reaching 0 to 60 in 2.5 seconds while the Ludicrous Mode gets the Tesla Model S going from 0 to 60 in only 2.28 seconds.
