Who wins in a hot lap between a $247,000 Ferrari Portofino and Performance Tesla Model 3?

Ferrari Portofino vs Tesla Model 3 Performance

Earlier this week we showed you Italian motorcyclist Andrea Pirillo taking a $247,000 twin-turbo V8 Ferrari Portofino up against a Performance Model 3 in a couple of drag races.

Now Matteo Valenza has shared his video of the day at the track, putting the two up in a test to see who can lap the nearly 2.5 mile Autodromo di Modena track in Italy.

The Portofino is a two door GT (grand touring) sports car than can reach 60mph in 3.1 seconds. It does so thanks to a twin-turbo V8 pumping out close to 600 horsepower, all through the rear wheels (RWD).

The Performance Model 3 on the other hand is a 4 door family sedan that can reach 60mph in 3.2 seconds. It has dual all-electric motors giving power to all four wheels (AWD).

The Model 3 was able to complete the lap nearly 4 seconds quicker than the much more expensive Ferrari Portofino.

  • Tesla Model 3 Performance: 1:13.424
  • Ferrari Portofino: 1:17.162

Four seconds might not sound like much of a gap, but in a 2.5 mile lap that difference in time is a huge win for the Tesla. Even though it was out-powered and had a lower top-speed, the handling of the Model 3 was what gave it the edge.
