No, not roadster against roadster. This more of a rich person’s race. Sean Szymkowski:
Top Gear has brought the latest Tesla Model S Performance, complete with Ludicrous Plus mode, and the Porsche Taycan Turbo S for a proper matchup. In the process, this very well may be the quietest drag race ever conducted.
I don’t know. I raced a friend down Route D in my dad’s Ford Falcon. Not much noise.
This race makes things interesting since the Model S Performance now packs updated electric motors and suspension bits. On paper, it’s quicker to 60 mph than the Taycan Turbo S, and it’s estimated to also have more horsepower. By comparison, the Porsche is heavier, though there’s more torque onboard. On paper, it’s also quicker to 100 mph than the Tesla.
Last time the Porsche won.
