10 Actual Supercars That Are Slower To 60 MPH Than The Tesla Model S

The Tesla Model S is one of the fastest accelerating production cars in the world. While we may all think that electric cars are not built for performance, the electric powertrain comes with a few massive benefits out of the box.

The most important being instant torque delivery. While traditional cars have to build up to their peak torque output, electric cars can get there in a much shorter space of time. This allows the Tesla Model S Plaid to achieve a blistering time of 1.98 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH.

This time is much faster than some of the fastest production supercars on the market today. Here are 10 impressive supercars that are actually slower to 60 MPH than the Tesla Model S Plaid.
