  • Nice-oscar

    For tesla(new car maker) to be neck and neck with the granddaddy of automobiles(porsche), clearly shows that tesla is coming fast, very fast. To be real, taycan is a 2 seater, not even kids would want to sit at the back. Low range and expensive! Why is porsche not building supercharging stations for their cars? Silly! Tesla won this one.

  • Cloud Strife

    Too many tesla fanboys here. Don't be upset if you can't buy a Taycan! Just focus on your Tesla specially with their "superb service and paint quality". 😂

    It would have been better for Porsche, Tesla and Top gear if you would have done a fair test and uses performance and launch mode on the Tesla

    Tesla is the lucky one, because the are no curves. The handling of the taycan is another level, compared to the Tesla.

    A Tesla Model S isn’t a sports car like the Porsche. It’s like comparing apples to oranges. A better comparison would be the Tesla Roadster when it comes out compared to the Porsche Taycan Turbo. That being said, I’m impressed with how good a sedan did against a sports car.

      And im impressed that The first Electric car from a comapny can beat an ev from 8 years ago..

  • pobinr

    Why's this still called top gear? All the wows, emotional outbursts & I'll tell you what 🙄 Mr uncools

  • xMoggey

    And now give them german manufacturers 5 -10 more years to get some experience with electric cars. That will be interesting

    • bhanu teja

  • Langolier

    The new Tesla Model S performance ran 1/4 mile in 10.5 seconds ... nosoft.info/hd/video/iZDBp5PT05yGyHs

  • voyteq1

    Top Gear doesn't even read those comments... if I'm wrong then why do they haven't give an explanation to their Dishonest 0-60 mph test? ( Tesla in RANGE MODE )


    Nice, now race with tesla roadster

  • LostMyAim

    Can we just hold on a second and try to believe how sexy the Porsche Taycan looks🤤

  • Caglar Tanrikulu
    Caglar Tanrikulu

    Chris Harris said it best when he said that Teslas are made by people who don't like cars. He also said he didn't understand how the Taycan fits in our world, being a 2.5 ton 4-door car with not much space for luggage and passengers. Right on the money there, as well. I guess what I'm saying is, get a Renault Zoe. :):):)

  • Langolier

    Only Germans could have made a turbo electric car ... Tesla does not even have chance a since it does not have a "Turbo."

  • Alireza Salimi

    Liars,,, you cheated, besides the model S numbers are from 2017 or 2018 drag race. Model S true time is <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="650">10:50</a> for drag race ;) Liars...

  • humoongus

    imho porsche didn't won this one... $43k more for that split of a second? I mean c'mon

  • Marko Misic
    Marko Misic

    I bet before the race 99% of people want Porsche to win

  • MeSs2007

    Tesla fanboys are the worst. It's like they sit all day and search for Tesla news/videos where they can defend their cars. The acceleration is hilarious and the charging network of the Tesla is unbeatable, but the build quality and handling cannot compare to Porsche. The Tesla is a GREAT everyday car, that's it. It's not a sports car, hilarious acceleration doesn't make it a sports car.


      i understand what your saying its not only tesla even porsche fans do that . i like tesla and tesla model s is an every day car but wait until tesla roadster 2 comes . it might be revolutionary

  • Leafbinder

    Why do you guys keep doing this after in your own words (This isnt a Factual Show its for entertainment only) I wouldnt trust you guys raceing 2 frogs.

  • Marcus Svean Flaten

    Porsche faster straight ahead and on winding roads RIP Tesla haha


      did you see that top gear cheated if you look at 1:07 they set the tesla on range mod and not ludacris

  • David ben Mesecke
    David ben Mesecke

    The Taycan for me too, even over the upcoming Tesla New Roadster. Why? Design, interior, comfort and quality. Tesla is miles away from Porsche in those areas. As to range, with a car like that, it matter not much, those who can afford those cars can afford a second hybrid or ICE car when they need to go far, which for most of us, is not all that often.

  • Medhavi N
    Medhavi N

    So basically tesla on range mode is just a fraction of seconds slower than porsche that was made 6 years after it.. I'll say Tesla is the winner here..

    • Charls S
      Charls S

      Medhavi N the numbers they show are 100% real. However, the tesla numbers they show are not from the car in this video, because they tested the model s before and it got better result, so they used those numbers for this video. The drag race you see doesn’t show the full performance, but the as i said, with the fastest numbers the taycan is faster.
