There are people who hate the Tesla because they think Elon Musk is weird or because it's an electronic middle finger to the muscle cars that America is known for, just as there are people who hate the Corvette because it's got flexible body panels and runs on the 50-million-year-old remains of baby dinosaurs. Regardless of which side you're on, this Tesla versus Corvette showdown is one you need to see.
On paper, the Corvette has 460 hp and weighs just 3,500 pounds. The Tesla on the other hand has 45 fewer ponies and tips the scales at a massive 4,700 pounds. That makes what you're about to see all the more astonishing.
