Tesla Cybertruck vs Porsche 911 Turbo S Drag Race

This exhilarating competition has been conducted and documented by Throttle House on YouTube. The duo is on a drag strip with these special automobiles. On one hand, the Cycbertruck, in the Cyberbeast mode, is one of the quickest and the most capable electric trucks on the planet. On the other, the Porsche 911 Turbo S is a benchmark when it comes to hard-accelerating sportscars. Hence, a race between these two would excite any automobile aficionado in the world.

On the count of three, both drivers press the accelerator as hard as they could. At the launch, it looked like the 911 lagged slightly as the Cybertruck zoomed past it. However, as the speeds got higher, the Porsche was getting into its own. In fact, that is when the electric pickup truck encountered massive drag due to its size despite the company claiming its aerodynamic efficiency. As a result, the German performance car was able to overtake the American EV and emerge victorious quite convincingly. At high speeds, the electric pickup truck just stands no chance.

Thereafter, the duo also decided to conduct a rolling acceleration test. It followed the same trajectory as the regular drag race. The EV took the lead briefly until the drag resistance created an issue. That is when the Porsche overtook it yet again. Just like before, the 911 Turbo S emerged as the undisputed winner of this competition. In any case, credit must be given to the colossal Cybertruck for keeping up with one of the fastest vehicles in the world for such a long time.

Now, while drag races can be a bit subjective every time, this one seemed reasonable. The fact that the front fascia of the Cybertruck is flat and large, is bound to pose a problem to the aerodynamic efficiency at high speeds. Still, to compete with a drag monster like the Porsche 911 Turbo S is no mean feat. Hence, even though the Cybertruck lost this race, it definitely won the respect of everyone watching. Finally, we would again like to caution our readers to never attempt such drag races with your own cars. Stay safe and prioritize your safety!
