    Not sure why Tesla fan boys are surprised. A Porsche is a true drivers car meanwhile the Tesla was just a car made to speed up electrification. Porsche puts more effort into the car to be a fun driving experience meanwhile the Tesla is more about what games you can play on your screen and having a robot drive for you. A true car enthusiast will take the Porsche over a Tesla. Only a matter of time until people realize Tesla isn’t a drivers car. It’s not nimble enough. And also Tesla fan boys have been hyping up a car because it used to beat everything it races but now since it has competitors, the Tesla fans have nothing else to brag about because they are no longer the quickest car. Hell Tesla doesn’t even use a real leather interior... it’s purely a car made for tech gimmicks and environmentalists

    Lmao all these salty Tesla fan boys In the comments. Whether or not the Tesla is faster in a 0-60, I think we can all agree the Porsche is much better overall if you include looks, steering, handling, response, braking, interior quality(real leather not fake leather), badge and road presence. The Porsche is a drivers car, the Tesla is a point a to point b car that isn’t meant for driving its meant for a robot to drive for you. Porsche is much more connected while driving than the Tesla because the Tesla has too much gimmicks and tech in it. Porsche does what it does best and that’s making track cars. Tesla does what it does best and that’s tech features. No need to be salty a 0-60 doesn’t mean anything.

    Very impressive that eco mode on the Tesla can keep pace with the sport+ mode on the Porsche

    How much did Porsche pay Top Gear to fake the results? Lol

    Tesla just released a software update. The software update drops at least .4 sec on 0-60 mph.

    What BS - it’s 50% more expensive, and hugely less range ... and no charging network. You can buy a model S AND AMODRL 3 for the price of the Porsche. Give me a break - who paid these guys off. I also heard they didn’t even have the Full Blown Power turned on in the Tesla. Total BS.

      The 75kwh battery in the model 3 charges faster then the 92kwh battery perk kwh of storage and will be efficient enough to give more miles per minute as well, tesla batteries are the most advance on the market.

    Its ok i'll still take the car with the most space, most convenient, largest charging network and best self driving AI now and for the foreseeable future. Then if someone pulls up next to me in a taycan i'll put it into ludicrous mode and watch my rear view as they turn into a blip, leaving them wondering how the paid reviewers could ever have lied to them. enjoy that access privelege boys...while it lasts.

    Tesla will end up fitting their cars with jet engines just to beat Porsche. They can't accept that finally there's an EV that can smoke them.

    • Djprojectus

      @Miguel lopez Yes,but Porsche made the impression that they will be making a variant close to 80.000 dollars,they just started first with the top variant,Turbo S! I think for the Porsche customers who appreciate the value of driving,they would not care about semi-autonomous software like Autopilot,they will still gonna buy Porsche even when they will make a cheaper variant that would be in competition with Tesla price wise!

    • Miguel lopez
      Miguel lopez

      @Djprojectus it was originally going to be priced at around 80k, close to the model S price, it was also going to be a longer 4 door saloon, just like the S. it was announced 3 years after the S. it was made to compete against the S but since this is Porsche first EV in a while they likely saw competing at the S price bracket was too limiting or to difficult. there is a reason Porsche lends credit for the taycan creation to tesla. people have always lost their minds over what car is better or what ever brand is better, tesla fans are louder then most.

    • Djprojectus

      @Miguel lopez They were not making Taycan to beat Model S! Taycan was made to be a specific Porsche car for Porsche customers that happens to be electric for the more progressive clients! Not to beat Model S! The media and fans put it against eachother but also Elon Musk with his Twitter statements and the fact that they pushed Model S Performance from a family sedan into the supercar territory! I don't think that Porsche wants a competition with a family sedan,Porsche cars are usually the second car beside the family one and used not so often like the family car! Porsche is for the fun of driving! That's what Tesla fans don't understand and bitch about! Top Gear is trash,I know,but still the amount of crying over this insignificant video of top gear is staggering! You would say that they lost some relative in a tragic accident! It's hilarious and Ludicrous! If top gear didn't put it in the Ludicrous mode,the Tesla fans they entered Ludicrous mode themselves! To me it appears hilarious and tragic at the same time,that a car can have a such big influence on people to loose their minds over it!😁

    • Miguel lopez
      Miguel lopez

      @Djprojectus I know the model S would loose in any serious form of racing, what I was not expecting was it to be so slow on the launch (I've seen dozens of drag races, p100Ds can do mid 10s, not 11s, top gear lying about the times and preformance is what really ticked people off, the taycan is still a worse car then the model S since the S performs practical functions much better, so its tunnle vision Porsche fans arguing with tesla purist. From mypoint, the taycanis a better sports car which is expected, but it's not the better EV, they had to hurt efficiency and cost to make the thing fast enough to beat the S.

    • Djprojectus

      @Miguel lopez Irrelevant! They still beat it!In the present! Tesla was the only one that was serious about ev and that's why they didn't had competition! Now they have and they lost! Maybe in the future they will beat Porsche with Plaid but now they were defeated ! And you can not accept it! Crying,yelling about the autopilot,2012 sedan,better range,less price but the fact remains! The Tesla Models was smoked! The fans can't believed that their beloved Tesla was smoked by a century old race track manufacturer! Ludicrous!

    So here’s my question: If you run out of power in one of these while looking for a place to recharge, will roadside service be able to give you enough to juice get to a recharging station? Similar to how they will give you a little fuel to get to a gas station?

      They tow you to nearest charger or home if battery dies, they tow you to Tesla showroom if it's something else and give you a free rental.

    Suggestion: Taycan vs Roadster

    • Miguel lopez
      Miguel lopez

      "considering what Information exists I bet on Rimac!" what information? i just pointed out why rimac has no advantage, it wasnt hard, this is not an emotional investment im stating physical facts about EV drive trains that you seemed to have not been aware of in the first place.

    • Djprojectus

      @Miguel lopez You have your opinion,I have mine,I think Rimac will smoke Tesla Roadster in all but range! Let's wait and see! You seem somewhat invested emotionally in Tesla! I don't care of Tesla or Rimac but considering what Information exists I bet on Rimac!

    • Miguel lopez
      Miguel lopez

      @Djprojectus its a traction problem, the rimac can have 10,000HP and it would not help, might make it worse actually but the point is that anything powerful enough to go below 2.1 seconds needs wider and stickier tires then what is usually available, if they dont have the extra traction they spin out and that 10,000HP goes into warming up the drive train, the roadster has already been observed to spin the tires on launch suggesting it has more available power then what the stickiest road legal tires could handle (Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2) but that HP will matter past 60MPH where wind and tire resistance increasingly draw more power.... and thats where the bigger battery has an advantage, the battery could push harder for longer before facing overheating issues. but my numbers are based on a 18650 cell at 4.2 V and a 20-25 amp draw, tesla might be using a next gen cell in the new roadster.

    • Miguel lopez
      Miguel lopez

      @Djprojectus no dude, its a physics problem, both cars can have 10,000 HP and 4 motors and it would not get them a much faster 0-60, they need traction and lots of it, so very sticky tires on very sticky pavement paired with a good launch control system. the plaid power train might be a 2 speed system as well but has not been attempted since the 2008 roadster. as for motor count, dont worry about it unless you like rock crawling and snow driving which is unlikely to be done in a $2,000,000 hyper car like the C-2. remeber tesla has been smoking drag cars on what is essentially a supped up electric family sedan from 2012. the plaid power train is being tested on the model S 2020 nosoft.info/hd/video/gpbLZZ6WqpB6l3M its aiming for their theoretical 7:05 time with F1 eagle tires.

    • Djprojectus

      @Miguel lopez Well,they have 2 stage gearbox which will surely help in the 0 to 60 times and also they have 4 motors compared to the roadster 3 motors! Maybe peak power will not be sustained for long but it will be enough to be beat Tesla in the acceleration time which so beloved by the Tesla fans. After the 0 to 60 the second more efficient gear on high speed driving will engage! The only thing Tesla has over Rimac is the battery pack! The things that Rimac has over Tesla is 4 motors,more peak horse power,the two shifting gears! I am betting on Rimac!
