Porsche Taycan vs Tesla Model S Drag Race: clarification

There have been some questions about our Taycan vs Tesla video

There have been some questions about the performance figures we posted in our recent Porsche Taycan vs Tesla Model S video. Time for some clarification.

First things first, we ran the drag race five times and the Porsche won every time by a small but increasing margin with each subsequent race.

The best figures we recorded for the Taycan Turbo S were:

0-60:       2.61
0-100:     6.12
¼ mile:   10.69s @ 131.6mph

The best figures we recorded for the Tesla Model S Performance were:

0-60:       2.83
0-100:     6.64
¼ mile:   11.23s @ 123.2mph

The numbers we posted in the video for the Tesla were:

0-60:       2.68
0-100:     6.46
¼ mile:   11.08s @ 124.0mph

These were numbers we recorded in a Model S on a previous occasion. We ran them because these are the best figures we’ve achieved in a Model S to date so we know that’s what the car is capable of.

And just to be clear, the Tesla was in Ludicrous+ mode, the battery was pre-conditioned and both cars had around 85 per cent charge before the first run.
