The Tesla Model S is one of the quickest production cars ever built. It ranks right up at the top of the list with the Porsche Taycan, which is also fully electric. However, the Model S has been at or near the top of the list for years, and it keeps getting quicker. To top it off, it’s a large, family sedan that’s super practical and accommodating.
How does Tesla’s flagship sedan fare against a gas-powered supercar? Why is a Tesla Model S versus Lamborghini Huracan race a big deal? Does it even matter? Most people aren’t buying their Tesla just to hit the track.
Sure, there are cars specifically built for racing, and a handful of supercars and hypercars that can give the Model S a run for its money. Interestingly, some of the quickest of those cars have already employed some form of electrification. Hybrid hypercars have proven their incredible torque and acceleration for years now.
The Lamborghini Huracan fits into a space that’s unlike the Model S’, but it’s not really a true supercar either. Instead, it’s a race-ready super-like sports car that’s capable of working as a daily driver, though it’s ridiculously impractical, and it costs north of $200,000. Many of Lamborghini’s vehicles fit into the same space as the likes of Ferraris and McLarens.
