Nitrous Mustang Takes Out Tesla Model S P100D, P90D in Father and Son Drag Races

The Tesla drag racing scene is alive and kicking, with the piece of footage we have here delivering the most recent sample of this.

This is an electric avenue drag strip adventure that can be labeled as quality family time, since we get to see a Model S P100D and a Model S P90D driven by a father and his son.

The senior gets behind the wheel of the P100D model and while his son drives the P90D, he also delivers the required camera talk.

Speaking of which, this isn't your usual all-out quarter-mile sprint. Instead, the pair of electric sedans races in the daily driver class, with an 11-second index. And since going below that time will lead to your elimination, getting as close to it with an extreme reaction time is the winning recipe.

The Teslas get to duke it out with their favorite enemies, namely a group of muscle cars. From a fifth- and a sixth-gen Camaro to a Mustang, there's plenty of V8 action in this video.

And while we're talking P100D running abilities, we'll remind you the Palo Alto machines wearing this badge, namely the Model S and the Model X, have yet to show us their fiercest side.

To be more precise, Elon Musk did his usual Twitter thing back on November 4th, letting it slip that a P100D-related Easter Egg will "soon" allow these models to deliver maximum performance.

And while the electric vehicle producer also has other things to worry about at the moment, things such as servicing matters that threaten the popularity of the upcoming Model 3, we'll return with the speedy news as soon as we get our hands on it.

P.S.: Given the fact that this clip landed from YouTube's Tesla Racing Channel corner, it shouldn't come as a surprise that we are promised yet another drag strip adventure in the final part of the video.
