Was The Tesla Cybertruck Drag Race just Debunked?

Motor Trend recreates and investigates the controversial Cybertruck 1/4 drag race to see if it holds up to scrutiny

When Elon Musk first introduced the Tesla Cybertruck to the world, he made a bold claim: “It can tow a Porsche 911 across the quarter mile faster than the Porsche 911 can go by itself.”

This statement, backed by a dramatic video, showcased the Cybertruck towing a Porsche 911 on a Futura Club Sport trailer, narrowly beating the iconic sports car in a drag race.

The video went viral, capturing the imagination of millions, but left many skeptical. Motor Trend decided to put this claim to the test once again.

Revisiting the Epic Stunt

Motor Trend, known for its rigorous testing and fact-checking, decided to replicate Tesla's stunt to see if the Cybertruck's towing prowess held up under scrutiny.

This time, the test involved a 2023 Porsche 911 Carrera T, a Futura Club Sport trailer, and the formidable Tesla Cybertruck Beast.

The Race Setup

In the spirit of scientific inquiry, Motor Trend set up the race meticulously. The Cybertruck was hitched to our ultralightweight Futura Club Sport aluminum trailer, renowned for its innovative design and engineering.

Weighing in at just 971 pounds (with the optional spare wheel kit loaded), our trailer is the lightest car hauler on the market, designed to handle even the most demanding conditions with ease.

The race pitted the Cybertruck, towing a Porsche 911 on our trailer, against a solo Porsche 911 Carrera T. The Futura Club Sport trailer’s advanced features, including its world-first anodized aluminum construction and smart control system, were critical in ensuring a seamless and stable towing experience.

The Results Are In

Over six quarter-mile drag races, the Porsche 911 Carrera T emerged victorious every time.

The closest finish saw the Porsche crossing the line 0.229 seconds ahead of the Cybertruck.

While the Cybertruck Beast, powered by 845 horsepower, put up a valiant fight, it simply couldn't outpace the Porsche 911 when towing.
