Tesla Model S will finally overtake Porsche Taycan Turbo S after software update

Thanks to a software update, the power plant will increase by 50 horsepower. Now the Tesla Model S should overtake the 761-horsepower Porsche Taycan Turbo S in a 1/4 mile race.

Tesla has again updated the software for Model S, thanks to which the maximum power of the power plant has added 50 horsepower. Elon Musk said that this will allow the electric car to overtake the main competitor of the Porsche Taycan in the race by 1/4 mile.

 Earlier on the web there was a video of the race of the German electric car Porsche Taycan Turbo S and the American Tesla Model S P100D. As a result, the German sedan covered a quarter mile in 10.6 seconds, and the American liftback arrived 1.2 seconds later, breaking a quarter in 11.8 seconds.

 This result was unexpected and shocking for Tesla. The claimed acceleration time from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour for the 761-horsepower Taycan Turbo S is 2.8 seconds, which is 0.2 seconds slower than the Model S P100D. Therefore, it was Tesla who had to win the race.

 However, the Tesla Model S update was released, now the electric car will not only be able to overtake the Porsche Taycan, but will also accelerate to 100 km / h even faster, as Elon Musk claims in his Twitter account. In the same update, automatic navigation was added. The system will offer the shortest routes to known points, for example, to work or at home, even before the driver sets the destination.

 A little earlier, photo spies “caught” the Tesla Model S at the Nurburgring with a huge wing. This model has become a regular guest of the track, which suggests that Elon Musk will still try to set a new record for the Northern Loop.
