Watch As Consumer Reports Goes Drifting In $90,000 Tesla S


Earlier today, our test-track-lovin’ kin at Consumer Reports surprised an awful lot of people by announcing that the completely electric (and completely expensive) Tesla S scored the highest in its latest automobile ratings. But what may surprise even more people is that the seemingly button-down auto-test folks at Consumer Reports also know to cut loose… and go drifting in a $90,000 car.

CR’s Auto Test Director Jake Fisher got behind the wheel of the Tesla S at the magazine’s super-secret testing facility under Wayne Manor on the outskirts of Gotham.

“[Y]ou don’t need a bellowing V8 engine—or a flyweight sports car—to have some fun,” writes CR. “The Tesla’s neutral handling, abundant power, low center of gravity, and controlled-but-absorbent suspension are the perfect complement for entertaining cornering maneuvers.”

Would have loved to see the $108,000 Fisker Karma put to the drifting test, if it had made it out of the parking lot.
