Watch a Porsche spin out of control while trying to keep up with a Tesla Model S on Ludicrous mode

The performance versions of the Tesla Model S have become the vehicles to beat in some performance car circles. While most know not to try to race one from a standstill because of its insane ludicrous torque, there are still some who dare.

It’s funny because we were just discussing yesterday how it wasn’t long ago that Porsche claimed all-electric powertrains didn’t offer enough performance to reach the level that their customers expect from the premium German brand.

Yet, their CEO announced this week that they changed their mind on electric vehicles and plan 50% of their production to be electric within 6 years.

Now we get to see a good real-world representation of this change of mind in a Porsche driver failing to keep up with a Tesla Model S on Ludicrous mode in an embarrassing way:

You can really hear to pure joy from the Tesla driver after the Porsche driver embarrassed himself, fortunately, without hurting anyone.
