Tesla Model S with ‘Cheetah Mode’ politely crushes muscle cars while setting new record


A Raven Tesla Model S Performance with the Cheetah Stance Launch Mode update has managed to set a new record on the drag strip, proving once more that the company’s over-the-air updates are an absolute game-changer. During its runs, the Model S was able to achieve new milestones for itself, while barreling through a number of muscle cars in the process. 


As noted by Brooks Wesblat of YouTube’s DragTimes channel, the ongoing pandemic has made it quite difficult to formally test the capabilities of the Model S Performance after it received the Cheetah Stance Launch Mode update. Fortunately, a drag strip in the Tulsa, Oklahoma, has been allowed to reopen, presenting an opportunity to test the capabilities of Tesla’s updated flagship sedan once and for all. 


The Model S in question, which belongs to Robert from YouTube’s Everything-Electric, was pretty much stock, though it’s equipped with the electric car maker’s lightweight Arachnid Wheels. The vehicle’s battery was also charged over 90% for its runs, ensuring that the Model S will be able to perform as well as it could during its tests. A series of the Model S’ runs with its Cheetah Stance Launch Mode was shared, and each one proved impressive.
