The Coolest Cars in the World
If you are in the market for a car, you will be surprised at the number of offerings you get in every single segment. Right from your Nissan Versa to a Ferrari F8 Tributo; there is competition in every segment. Whether you’re into classic cars, imported models or luxury items, you will be spoilt for choices. But, not every car you see is a cool one. There are a number of factors in determining whether a car is cool or not. There’s the exterior, the interior, the performance, and most importantly, it’s every individual’s opinion. You may or may not agree with some of the entries here, but here’s a look at the coolest cars of 2021.
Your Tesla Model S Plaid Will Now Have A Track Mode!
The Model S Plaid has been the talk of the town ever since it was launched last year. It has become the king of the drag strip within a short span of time, but it wasn’t as good on circuits and tracks as it was on straight roads. Don’t get me wrong, it is a beast even there, but it needed something like the Model 3 Performance’s Track Mode to complete it. Fast forward to the present day, Tesla has done exactly that.
The Tesla Model S Plaid is now available with the Track Mode, an over-the-air update that has already started rolling out, to make cornering on this just as good as its straight-line sprints.
How Much Does A Tesla Model X Cost?
The Model X remains largely unchanged for 2022 including its exorbitant price tag. The 2022 Tesla Model X carries an MSRP of $106,440 for the entry-level Long Range model while the range Topping Plaid comes with an MSRP of $121,440. But the updates it received for the 2021 model year continue to keep things interesting.
Can The BMW i4 M50 Defeat The Tesla Model 3 Performance In A Drag Race?
The ‘Carwow’ team kicked off 2022 with a drag race between two entry-level EVs from Tesla and BMW – the Model 3 and the i4. Both the cars were in their sportiest trims and were out to battle each other on the drag strip. The i4 M50 makes more power, but it is also significantly heavier. Which car do you think will get the win here?
Tesla Model S Plaid – The Drag Race Compilation
The Tesla Model S Plaid came out in June this year, and it took the EV barely any time to assert its dominance on the drag strip. It came with figures like quarter-mile in less than 10 seconds, 0-60 mph in 1.99 seconds, etc. This was enough for us to know that the car will be a favorite on the drag strip. Within a month, we spotted the car on the drag strip, taking on sports cars, supercars, and even remote control cars!
It wouldn’t be wrong to say that 2021 was Tesla Model S Plaid’s year. We witnessed tens of fun Model S Plaid drag races this year, so we decided to compile them all in a single article – in ascending order – for you to enjoy them. Feast your eyes, peeps!
Top EVs That Can Pose a Threat To Tesla Model S Plaid
The Tesla Model S Plaid is, arguably, the most talked about, high-performance EV in recent times. We have witnessed many drag races in which a Tesla Model S manages to beat some of the best, combustion-powered, high-performance vehicles on sale today. However, Tesla is no longer the only big player in the EV market and other manufacturers are also coming up with high-performance EVs. Here are the ones that are most likely to threaten the Model S Plaid’s domination.
The Tesla Model 3.D?
Yes, you heard that right, a diesel engine in what is essentially a salvaged Tesla Model 3 will soon house an oil burner powered by the fuel of Satan. YouTuber Rich Rebuilds is known for his Tesla-centric content on the web, and this one is his next project.
The Model S Plaid Once Again Proves That You Don’t Need A Zillion Dollar Hypercar To Do Breakneck Speed
We really do live in some strange times. I mean who would have thought about a decade ago that a family sedan could give zillion-dollar hypercars a run for their money. Back then most people would associate an EV with milk floats or those buggies or golf carts you see at a fancy resort. The Tesla Model S Plaid is a far cry from those days and Tesla is responsible for initiating a paradigm shift in the auto industry.
Tesla’s Software V11.0 Update Brings New Light Show, Enhanced User Interface, And... A Megaphone?
Drag Race: Tesla Model Y vs Sheriff’s Explorer
Now the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Ford Explorer is no stranger to the drag strip. We previously saw it take on the likes of the mighty Nissan GT-R, a Shelby Mustang GT500,, and a quad bike. This time around, it goes up against a far more humble runabout in the form of your every day Tesla Model Y.
The Roadster Is Probably Tesla’s Most Delayed Vehicle Ever
The second-generation Tesla Roadster, which is supposed to hit the market by 2020, is still nowhere to be seen. It’s nearly the end of 2021, and Tesla apparently has removed pricing information on its website, along with stopping reservations for the Founders Series.

Having said that, we did see some pretty cool ICE cars, also make their debut. Now there were several cars that made headlines this year, it was very difficult to pick out the best ones, but the cars on this list definitely stood out.

This Jet-Powered Model S Is Unlike Anything You’ve Seen Or Heard Before
Have you ever seen a Tesla Model S powered by a jet engine? Well, this particular Model S P85 has not one, but three of them sitting at the back, and not only does it look outrageous, but as you can already imagine, it sounds phenomenal.

Whether you like him or hate him, there’s no ignoring him. And, if you thought you wouldn’t see more of him this year, well, we’ve got some news. Elon Musk has been named the ’Time Person of the Year’, and it doesn’t come as a surprise. The man has created news and controversies many times this year and is definitely one of the most influential people of 2021. Can you think of anyone else who deserved the honor instead?
What Was The Audi RS3 Thinking Before Challenging The Tesla Model 3 To A Drag Race?
The Audi RS3 was recently updated and it is a fantastic proposition overall. Audi even gave it a little more torque this time around. But, it is still not in the leagues of EVs when it comes to straight-line races. The folks at Carwow pit the Audi RS3 against a Tesla Model 3 that was nothing more than a glorified squash. The Model 3 is in a league of its own, and in this race, it proved the same by obliterating the RS3.
This Is What The Production-Spec Tesla Cybertruck Will Look Like!
The Tesla Cybertruck debuted almost two years back, but the deliveries have still not begun. We keep getting constant updates about the unorthodox truck, but it wasn’t spied or seen testing… until now. A long, detailed drone footage of the Cybertruck testing at the Tesla’s Fremont facility has come to the fore, courtesy of ‘Chile Al100’. The video shows the Cybertruck, which seems to be in its production form, and features many changes when compared to the prototype that was unveiled in 2019.
What is the Cheapest Tesla?
Tesla’s cheapest offering is the Model 3 which retails from $38,990. The car comes with a very clean cabin with almost no buttons at all, a 15-inch touchscreen that dominates the center console, and a spacious cabin overall. The standard range trim offers you 220 miles on a full charge, whereas the Long Range offers 310 miles on a single charge. The latter trim takes 5.1 seconds to sprint to 60 mph from a standstill before losing breath at 140 mph.
What is the Sportiest Tesla?
Tesla has a spectacular range of products, but the Roadster is clearly the sportiest product from the stable. It has been in news ever since its launch back in 2007. The Roadster boasts some ridiculous figures, such as 0-60 mph in 1.9 seconds, a top speed of 250 mph, and can cover 620 miles on a single charge. Interestingly, Musk sent his Roadster in outer space as part of the Space X project. In other news, Musk also said that the car will come with rocket thrusters. If this is not sporty, I don’t know what is.
What is the Most Popular Tesla?
The Model 3 is the most popular Tesla. The American startup sold over 10,000 examples of it in April 2019. It is also the cheapest model in the company’s range.
What is the Most Expensive Tesla?
Tesla has redefined the EV segment with not just quality electric products that are good for a daily commute, but are also a hoot and a half to drive. However, this comes at a price. The company’s Model S Performance retails at $90,115, whereas the Model S Performance trim is priced at $95,115. TheModel X Performance is the fastest production SUV, as it takes just 2.7 seconds to touch 60 mph from a standstill. It has also attained the highest safety ratings ever.
What is the Fastest Tesla?
The Model S P100D in Ludicrous Model is the fastest mainstream vehicle from the stable when it goes all guns blazing. The car takes merely 2.4 seconds to reach the 60 mph mark and can go all way up to 163 mph. It comes with an all-wheel-drive system and can go up to 340 miles on a single charge. The Model S takes just 15 min to replenish the battery with enough energy to cover 130 miles.
Are Tesla Cars Reliable?
Despite boasting some amazing crash test ratings, which generally instils a certain amount of faith in the brand, Tesla is actually not known for its long term reliability. The company offers four years warranty on the car and eight years on the battery, but was ranked 27th out of 29 automakers by Consumer Reports in 2018. Tesla has a habit of changing the hardware and the software on a frequent basis and that fluctuates the reliability to a large extent.
