Porsche Taycan Turbo S beats Tesla Model S P100D in 0-100 km/h and 0-250 km/h acceleration times
Porsche Taycan might not be giving Tesla a tough time in the technological advancement or self-driving arena but when it comes to the numbers drivers value so much, it is giving Tesla a challenge with every passing day.
In the following video we can see that the Tesla Model S P100D has lost to the Porsche Taycan Turbo S in terms of reaching 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) and up to 0-250 km/h where the Taycan truly shines, it takes Taycan significantly less time reaching the top-speed than the Model S (for results see the following table).
Just this past weekend the Model S P100D lost to the Taycan Turbo S in a drag race and handling test and now we have some interesting results that demonstrate the Taycan is proving to be an ultimate driver’s electric sports car.
Porsche Taycan Turbo S vs. Tesla Model S P100D Acceleration Times
|Acceleration Time Slots||Porsche Taycan Turbo S||Tesla Model S P100D|
|0-100 km/h (0-62 mph)||2.66 secs||2.87 secs|
|0-200 km/h (0-124 mph)||8.65 secs||11.27 secs|
|0-250 km/h (0-155 mph)||13.52 secs||22.53 secs|
Although the 0-250 km/h top speed attempt was made on a 2017 Tesla Model S P100D which was missing this year’s ‘Raven drivetrain’ and the new ‘adaptive air suspension’ but still the initial time of 2.8 secs for 0-100 km/h for the Model S is a bit low, might be the driver.
But in the long run, Tesla Model S’ 22.53 secs for reaching 250 km/h is a staggering 9 secs more than the Taycan Turbo S.
Porsche has really put together this car as a true sports car, reaching 250 km/h in 13.52 secs is blazing fast, this is the performance Porsche is charging $180k for the Taycan Turbo S.
Although Porsche has listed the official top-speed of the Taycan Turbo S as 259 km/h (161 mph) but we can witness that the car reached 260 km/h with ease, kudos to Porsche for being so conservative when it comes to performance numbers.
For these reasons Tesla felt the urgent need to introduce the Tri-Motor Plaid Model S and it’s currently being tested again at the Nürburgring, the right decision at the right time Tesla, Porsche is stealing the show.
The following two videos were used in the above comparison compilation and to derive results.
* It is important to remember that 0-100 km/h is not equal to 0-60 mph, the Tesla Model S P100D’s 2.5 sec time is for 0-60 mph which is actually 96.56 km/h. Porsche officially does not list 0-60 mph numbers while Tesla does not list 0-100 km/h numbers, I think they both should to further clarify confusions.
