The former Formula 1 champion Nico Rosberg, a declared fan of electric vehicles, has carried out a curious challenge on his YouTube channel. He put a Porsche 911 GT2 RS with a Tesla Model 3 Performance dual engine in a “drag race” face to face. Who will
This type of races between two vehicles occurs in a short and straight route with a measured distance. In the case at hand, on paper the GT2 RS is technically capable of reaching 100 km / h in 2.8 seconds, which basically means that it should be much faster than its all-electric opponent (on paper 3.3 seconds ).
However, as we see, the reality was very different. The wild acceleration of the Tesla won, and there is little that can be done against a car with four-wheel drive with instant torque and enough power. In the test, the Model 3 managed to reach 100 km / h in 3.2 seconds, while the Porsche could only achieve it in 3.3 seconds.
It would be necessary to see the results in a track, space where possibly the 911 has the ones to win in spite of its deficit of acceleration.
