The Model 3 is in a league of its own, and in this race, it proved the same by obliterating the RS3.

So far, the Plaid has remained pretty much unbeatable, except for losing to the Rimac Nevera. This time, it faces the Ferrari SF90 Stradale – a hybrid car that makes close to 1,000 horses and is significantly lighter than the Plaid, thus giving it a better power-to-weight ratio.

The Roadster boasts some ridiculous figures, such as 0-60 mph in 1.9 seconds, a top speed of 250 mph, and can cover 620 miles on a single charge. Interestingly, Musk sent his Roadster in outer space as part of the Space X project. In other news, Musk also said that the car will come with rocket thrusters. If this is not sporty, I don’t know what is.

The Model 3 is the most popular Tesla. The American startup sold over 10,000 examples of it in April 2019. It is also the cheapest model in the company’s range.

Are Tesla Cars Reliable?
Despite boasting some amazing crash test ratings, which generally instils a certain amount of faith in the brand, Tesla is actually not known for its long term reliability. The company offers four years warranty on the car and eight years on the battery, but was ranked 27th out of 29 automakers by Consumer Reports in 2018. Tesla has a habit of changing the hardware and the software on a frequent basis and that fluctuates the reliability to a large extent.
