A Porsche Taycan drove past a Tesla Model S prototype that broke down while testing on the Nurburgring racetrack, driving internet users and Tesla haters mad.

Tesla has reportedly brought several Model S prototypes with a new 3-motor “Plaid” powertrain to the Nurburgring racetrack, testing the new version of the electric sedan, and trying to beat the record recently established by the Porsche Taycan for the fastest 4-door electric sedan at the ring. Achieving the latter with a time of 7:20, the Elon Musk-founded company is now aiming to beat this record next month.

However, something clearly went wrong, as a new video shows the Model S Plaid ending up breaking down on the track and having to be towed away – and its rival, the Porsche Taycan, casually driving by.

Electric car lovers went crazy over the video. “Tesla totally humiliated. Unable to complete the timed round, unable to complete with production Porsche and at the end finishing on diesel tow. It couldn't have been worse,” one of the comments reads. “It's like getting pulled over by the cops in front of your neighborhood, and having everyone watch,” another user said.
