The First Race between the Porsche Taycan and the Tesla Model S

Although the both cars are not direct competitors (they have different classes and, consequently, different audiences), they have similar technical specifications. Therefore, the collision of the two powerful EVs on the track was a matter of time. Recently, the first such race was held by German journalists.

Yes, in terms of starting dynamics, the Tesla is significantly superior to the Porsche. The Model S P100D has good acceleration from 0-100 km/h, but the Taycan Turbo S has also something to say: its force is in high speed at high power, endurance and swiftness. This race illustrates this clearly.

However, it is not worth accepting this battle for truth. It gives only a general idea of comparing these two cars. For the very fact that the races were attended not by the latest three-engine Tesla Mode S with an updated suspension (referred to as Plaid), but by an “old” configuration, which is no longer produced by the manufacturer. In addition, nothing is said about the tires of electric cars, which are of great importance in such cases.
