It Had To Happen Eventually, A Porsche Taycan vs Tesla Model S Drag Race
YouTube channel DragTimes wanted to know how quick the all-electric Porsche Taycan is. And the only way to test how fast the Taycan is to benchmark it against the Tesla Model S Performance. The Tesla Model S Performance tested in this video outputs 588 bhp, the Porsche Taycan Turbo S outputs 750 bhp.
But this race is as much about weight as it is about power. The Taycan’s kerb weight is 2,370 kg vs the Model S performance which weighs in at 2241 kg. But the far more important question is, how do these primitive Americans afford such expensive cars, how can they afford to race such exotica?
