With Tesla set to unveil the Model Y next Thursday, what better way to kick things off early by staging a drag racing showdown with some of the fastest luxury sedans currently on the market, headlining things with the Model S P100D? That’s exactly what CarWow did, and the results may surprise you. Featuring the 640-horsepower Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-Door, 625-horsepower BMW M5 Competition and a 680-horsepower Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid. Read more to see which vehicle came out on top.
“The future is naturally an all-electric Tesla Model S P100D with its dual motors pumping out an insane amount of power to all four wheels. Horsepower is a harder to quantify on a purely electric vehicle, but Carwow lists the Tesla with 680 hp, matching the Porsche. It’s also a heavyweight at just under 5,000 pounds (2,268 kilograms), but it’s still a bit lighter than the Panamera,” according to Motor1.
