2013 Tesla Model S P85 vs 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 Z51

January 27th, 2014

Here is another featured race from the StreetCarDrags.com event at Palm Beach International Raceway this past weekend.  We put our 2013 Tesla Model S P85  heads up against the brand new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 Z51 with the 6 speed automatic transmission.

It’s a rehash of our wildly popular Tesla vs Viper race we did last year where we pit new age American electric against modern American muscle and the results were similar with the Tesla Model S winning one race and the Chevrolet Corvette winning the other.
