Gutted Tesla Model X Plaid vs. Big Turbo Porsche 911 Turbo S – Street Hits

February 27th, 2024

We are taking it to the streets – getting back to our roots – for some high-powered roll racing action between a pair of modified stallions. Our man Frank is on the scene with all the details.

The Tesla Model X SUV is a beast of an all-electric grocery getter with a trio of electric motors that can make the equivalent of 1,020hp. In factory condition, the Model X plaid can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in only 2.5-seconds and turn the standing quarter-mile in 9.9-seconds @ 146.7 mph. That’s quicker than the Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye, the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 or the Ford Mustang GT500 – just in case you were curious. The Tesla featured in this clip has been modified with a set of lightweight wheels. The interior creature comforts have also been skinned out and discarded. This thing is a lean, mean and silent machine.

In the other lane is the Porsche 911 Turbo S. Equipped with a rear-mounted and twin turbocharged all-aluminum flat-6 engine the Turbo S can make 640hp and 590 lb.-ft. of torque at peak RPM. This German beauty can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.2-seconds and eclipse the quarter-mile in 10.1-seconds @ 137 mph. Top speed is 205 mph. Modified to enhance performance, this Porsche has been upgraded with a set of SiR turbochargers and all the supporting hardware. The transmission is an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic.

Let’s get it on!
