Classic car maven Hagerty has named Tesla’s Model S its car of the decade.

Hagerty’s expansive list spans everything from pre-war luxury to hot rods to ultra-modern sports cars, and “highlights some of the brightest moments in automotive history.”

While the current decade isn’t quite dusted yet, the folks behind the list reckon there isn’t anything more coming that could challenge the Tesla Model S for top spot.

Hagerty’s Andrew Newton said: “Only one [car] has shown the world not only the efficiency and environmental advantages of electric power, but it has also shown the performance advantages of electric power and wrapped it all up in a sleek, appealing, and expensive-but-attainable package. In other words, only one has made the electric car cool, and that’s the Tesla Model S.”

Check out the final list below:


1890 – 1910: Ford Model T

1910s: Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost

1920s: Duesenberg Model J
