X 75D vs. Mustang GT? Meh....

I don't condone drag racing on city streets, but yesterday I just couldn't resist: a big, bold Mustang GT pulled up alongside me at a stop-light, rumbling and grumbling and showing his muscles, all sound and thunder. Very macho, gunning the engine purposefully: vroom, vroom. Empty street ahead. Light goes green. I even let him get a slight head start, then with a simple tap of the accelerator, left him in my dust--er, I mean my electrons.

At the next stop light, he was decidedly meeker and more subdued....
Truth is, the Mustang GT (if it's a newer model) handily beats your X75 both in 0-60 and in the quarter mile is walking away. The driver likely did not know how to launch his Mustang, and since launching a Tesla requires no skill, the outcome is usually predictable.
