Nice. No time slips?
I'm car 900. Here are 2 races against the NSX and 1 of my best for the night. Full interior, including my son's booster seat in the trunk.

The NSX starts at 158k
it should slightly beat a Performance Model 3 with
0-60 2.9s, 0-100 7.5s, and 1/4 mile at 11.4 sec.
Driver ability is much more of a factor in the NSX vs a 3
But, even if the right driver is found, and they can beat the 3 at the track, it would be a small margin of victory for a car that is 100k more expensive with significant less space and practicality

That would be relevant to bring up if the 100k was dedicated towards going fast in a straight line.

Great take downs. Trap speed is 4 MPH quicker. Would of destroyed you in the half mile.
When I was at the half mile race last weekend there were several cars there that should have beat me in the half mile that weren't able to. Most half mile events aren't prepped and that favors in Tesla's favor big time.

Those stats are under ideal conditions with a paid or professional driver. This race was in the real world at elevation (around 3,500ft) with normal people driving. Not many cars can hit their performance specs with regular drivers as consistently as a Tesla.

Non Super/Turbo charged cars will show degraded performance as altitude decreases.
Tesla will be relatively consistant regardless of altitude or temperature.

ICE drag racers search diligently for just the right track elevation (low) and barometric pressure to get time slips for bragging rights.

Nice - Thanks for posting !!! I still have yet to see the new NSX anywhere but at a car show.....

Of all places, I saw a new NSX in the parking lot of my local Lowes. It's a beautiful car, but probably not the one I would use for a trip to the hardware store. :)
