Porsche Taycan Turbo S vs Tesla Model S Performance Cheetah Stance 4x 1/4 miles Races in the battle of the EVs! There's very little between them, but what an intriguing impact to the outcome it makes by the state of the battery charge. Having just collected my Porsche Taycan Turbo S and wrapped it green, we went straight to hire a runway for some drag races. After going up against my McLaren Senna, some friends joined with their Teslas to set up a very interesting comparison. With both the Model S and Model X present, in their latest high-spec Performance variant with Cheetah stance, you know it's going to be a battle. The additional weight of the Model X clearly pegs it back vs the Model S and the Taycan, both of which offer a very similar prospect carried out in rival ways. The Taycan Turbo S has 761hp and 1,050Nm, where the Teslas both have 785hp and 967Nm. The Model S is the lightest at 2,250kg, the Taycan at 2,295kg, and the Model X at 2,572kg but all use multiple motors and have instant torque for the most ridiculous of getaways. However, I have made it very clear that I'm learning the EV world and one substantial factor I didn't fully consider was the impact of a lower charge. After travelling to the runway, practice and setting things up, then shooting the video vs the Senna, the Taycan was already down to just 36% at the start; where the Model X had 70% and the Model S had 75%. But he last runs the cars were all 5% further down from there, which clearly plays quite a big impact in the results. In fact at the end of the day the quickest 1/4 mile time I recorded on the Vbox Performance Touch was 11.17s, after achieving 10.88s with about 40% earlier. The final less, I need to do it again!
