For example, 535i is supposedly faster 0-60. ( 5.6 vs 5.9 seconds for the Tesla) I somehow doubt it will beat it in a standing start. ( I am biased, of course)
I am not a boy racer, but I wold not be able to resist an invitation to an impromptu drag race once I get my car. However, I pick my race carefully :-)
Standing start, other car might have a chance.
From 30 mph or so onwards, most likely the Tesla will blow many higher priced sedans away due to the near-instantaneous torque.
