The Boring Company Tesla Race
The Boring Company staged a race between two Tesla vehicles recently. One of the Tesla’s travelled through the new Boring tunnel, while the other used the surface streets to go between the beginning and end of the tunnel.

It should come as to no surprise that the Tesla travelling through the tunnel was faster than the one moving on the surface. The Tesla in the tunnel reached a speed of 204km/h (127mph) through the 1.14-mile long tunnel.
It turns out the trip was 3 minutes and 8 seconds faster through the new tunnel. This is a significant increase compared to the first demonstration the Boring Company held back in December which saw the tunnel vehicles reaching only half this speed.
