Tesla Model S vs 1968 Pontiac Firebird Burnout Battle

We’ve already seen the Tesla Model S can pull some awesome (albeit quiet) quarter mile runs, but the all-electric sedan is also capable of burning some serious rubber when traction control is disabled.

The instant torque is quite impressive and can get through a set of rear tires in no time. That can’t be good for your wallet, but if you’re planning to replace your rollers with a set of new ones within the our you might as well put them to good smoky use, just like a Model S owner did in the video below.

In case you’re not into rubber screeching without engine noise whatsoever, the footage shows a short burnout session with a classic 1968 Pontiac Firebird 400. It’s a no-brainer for us, as we’d rather have fun in the Firebird, but how about you? Electric power or V8?
