Video: Tesla Model S Gets Its Drift On

model-s-driftAfter winning enough awards to fill a large trophy case, the Tesla Model S continues to be not just the best electric car on the road, but perhaps the best car you can buy, period, according to Consumer Reports. So how did they arrive at that conclusion?  Oh, you know, just a little drifting.

I will never get tired of the Tesla Model S, and from the looks of it, neither will the Internet. So when I saw this video of the Tesla Model S being flogged on Consumer Report’s test track (right here in lovely Connecticut) I just knew I had to share it with my readers. No wonder Consumer Reports rated it a 99/100!

Despite being a 4,600 pound electric sedan, the 416 horsepower and 443 ft-lbs of torque allows the Tesla to be drifted with ease. No offense to the tester, of course, but I’d really like to say how the Model S handles with a professional drifter like Vaughn Gittin Jr. at the wheel.

Please, somebody, make this happen.
