Can the Porsche Taycan Turbo S overtake the McLaren P1 hypercarAugust 13, 2020
A team of enthusiasts decided to find out if the German Porsche Taycan Turbo S electric car can overtake the McLaren P1 hybrid hypercar. An old runway was chosen as the venue for the competition. The cars were racing in a straight line.
Since the unveiling of the German Porsche Taycan Turbo S, we’ve seen videos showing the all-electric sedan outperforming just about any car imaginable. Will it beat the McLaren P1 hybrid hypercar at a quarter mile or 402 meters?
To find out, the guys from YouTube channel Lovecars took a black Taycan Turbo S and a yellow P1 to the former runway to race in a straight line between the cars.
Making this race even more exclusive is the fact that this P1 hybrid was one of the first prototypes used in the development of a hypercar.
Porsche’s all-electric traction and all-wheel drive system give it a significant advantage. Meanwhile, the P1 suffered from slight wheel slip at the start – no wonder, as the car has 916 hp, which are sent only to rear-wheel drive.
For a while, Porsche held the lead on the race. However, as speeds began to increase, the much lighter and more powerful McLaren quickly caught up with the Porsche and literally flew past it.
In fact, it took McLaren 3.65 seconds to accelerate to 100 km / h, which is much slower than its official top-100 acceleration time of 2.8 seconds. The P1 eventually crossed the finish line 10.68 seconds after starting, accelerating to 241 km / h. By comparison, the Taycan Turbo S hit 100 km / h in 2.7 seconds and finished in 10.82 seconds at 205 km / h.
