Tesla Model S Plaid appears as a beast racing against world’s quickest Sedans

Tesla Model S Plaid broke records on many occasions. Despite being a production vehicle the vehicle with three motors and 1,000 horsepower seems to be a completely different beast as it was against two of the world’s quickest Sedans. When Porsche Taycan came into the market, it was considered one of the quickest cars in the world-beating the Tesla Model S P100D. It proved to be a car that veteran cars shouldn’t be ignored. Alongside, Lucid Air is a comparatively newer model and known to have the capability of completing the quarter-mile 10.21 seconds at 143.37 mph.

It was proven in a recently posted video from Brooks Weisblat of the DragTimes YouTube channel that the Lucid Air Dream edition seems like a league of its own. After featuring the Lucid Air in three videos so far, the veteran drag racer opted to race the newcomer against both the Tesla Model S Plaid and the Porsche Taycan Turbo S. A triple-threat race is always interesting, but when it involves three of the world’s quickest sedans, then things turned out to be unexpected.

Furthermore, the three vehicles are pretty different on paper. It is known that Lucid Air Performance Dream Edition is listed with two electric motors that make 1,111 horsepower and a weight of 5,236 pounds. It also costs a hefty $170,000. Meanwhile, Taycan Turbo S is a Porsche through and through, with its two electric motors that make 750 horsepower, 2-speed transmission, and its weight of 5,300 pounds. It’s also the most expensive of the three at $218,000 for the specific trim featured in the video.
