2017 Nissan GTR vs Tesla Model S P90D: Could Have Gone Better

By  | 

The Tesla Model S P90D is one of the top EV models in the market and is known for having a mean acceleration. How do you think that Tesla Model S P90D will do when it is forced to face the Nissan GTR?

The guys over at Top Gear decided to put both these models in a drag race to see which of them is the ultimate drag queen. The Tesla Model S P90D will be coming in with a 762bhp engine that is powered by a 90kWh twin electric model that will be offering about 713lb ft of torque. The engine will allow the Tesla Model S 90D to go from 0-62mph in 2.8 seconds with a top speed of 155mph.

The Nissan GTR, on the other hand, will come with a V6 twin turbo engine that will be offering about 562bhp and 469lb ft of torque. The engine will allow the GT-R to go from 0-62mph in 2.8 seconds with a top speed of 196mph.

Despite its hp and torque advantage, the Nissan GT-R ended up winning. Would things be different if the Tesla model was the P100D instead of the P90D?

    they used an early model p90d…an outdated model of the p90d, let alone p100d.
    might as well have raced it against a Nissan Stanza
