Silent Race – Electric Porsche Taycan Turbo S vs Tesla Model S P100DMay 25, 2020
In this post, we will talk about the race between the electric Porsche Taycan Turbo S 2020 model year and the 2019 American electric car Tesla Model S P100D. Check-in was carried out at an abandoned airfield.
Representing America as part of this race, the Model S electric sedan in the P100D has two motors. One of them, which is mounted on the front axle, produces 275 hp. (420 Nm), but the one on the rear axle can give you an additional 503 hp. (720 Nm).
Each selected driving mode leads to a different total output power and amount of torque, but according to official data, the maximum capacity of an electric power plant is 750 hp. in Ludicrous mode. The car needs 2.5 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h, although the craftsmen managed to accelerate the sedan to “hundred” in 2.28 seconds. An American electric car costs 105,000 euros and weighs 2,240 kg.
Another participant of the race is the German sports sedan Porsche Taycan Turbo S, which thanks to its impressive dynamic characteristics, like the American electric car, is quite capable of competing with supercars.
Thanks to the efforts of engineers of the premium automaker, the car can score the first “hundred” in 2.6 seconds. The maximum speed is 260 km / h, and its power unit with zero emissions can produce up to 750 hp. power and 1050 Nm of torque with the active Overboost mode. Sedan is offered at a price of 200 000 euros. The weight of the machine is 2,370 kg.
Since the two super-electric cars have very similar performance indicators, we can assume that they will show the same results in the race. You will have to watch the video to the end to find out the outcome of this silent race.
Not so long ago, our publication wrote that Porsche could develop an ultralight compact sports car. As Porsche chief designer Michael Mauer said on Saturday, May 23, he would like to create a very lightweight compact car – a car that would become the ideological successor to the 550 Spyder in the mid-1950s.
