    Seeing that fine gentlemen at Consumer Reports compiled this test, you have to excuse their inability to highlight the obvious; the Tesla is AWD and it will hook up much better than the tire shredding Hellcat thus leading to higher g's at launch. The graph does a brilliant job of showing this, but again the CR guys fail to pick up on simple physics. We need to cut them a break, they're not gear heads....ok lets not cut them a break, I agree.

    Check out the complete video at Consumer Reports and leave us your comments.

    Wow, I'm not even going to attempt a clever retort. The nerds can have the Tesla.

    Meh, shouldn't they be comparing that Tesla to a Prius, Leaf or maybe a Volt.

    You don't see Dodge comparing the Hellcat to golf carts...

    Yeah, my barber has been telling me to buy a Tesla instead of a Hellcat for awhile. He has thrown all the stats at me... acceleration, technology, the long-term economics, the "feel good" environmental stuff.... and I have given it a lot of thought and come to a conclusion that may be controversial to some...


    Change barbers!

    Wrap Tesla's stuff with a muscle car, -$40k, then come talk to me (after I don't need to plug it into my wall.)

    If i had the $$$ to buy the P85 i would in a heartbeat. The car is an amazing car. As it the Hellcat. Just 2 different kinds of amazing, but both are badass

    I would just buy two hellcats, and then maybe two more... If I have the money for 1 tesla, I probably have it for two. Get a younger, blonder, woman for your barber... She would like your hellcat!
