Absolutely mental that GTS is. Would love to see it run against the X3M.

Also, shout out to you, OP for posting this minutes after this video was posted lol.

Should have used the X3M/X4M, but then it wouldn't even be close lol.

Interesting comparison. I think the M40I would have been a better match, and probably even beaten the GTS. The 40D and 40I are close 0-60, but the gasser pulls ahead substantially as speed increases.

My buddy has a model Y and he let me drive it the other day. We starting joking about racing, then realized we are both competitive. So naturally we agreed to race next time we see each other!

I'll post the results when we do!

I raced a Gen I Turbo cruising on the highway…. My bone stock M40i was pulling on him from about 110 to 130…. I swung around to pass him but decided it was time to quit as I pulled along side of him. I'm telling ya, these cars are fast.

That GTS is a beast. I test drove the Turbo a few years back (which is the engine the GTS has now), and it was a blast. Look forward to replacing with the new gen soon.

Imagine how fast that TESLA would be if the batteries didn't weigh so much.

That wasn't the point of this matchup, hence the M40d being here.
