CAR COMPARISON: PORSCHE TAYCAN vs TESLA MODEL S

 

 

Tesla has been the only high performance electric car for some time now, no other car manufacturer has had an electric car that can beat Tesla Model S Performance. However, this is not the case anymore! 

Porsche has released its high performance electric car; the Porsche Taycan. Finally, we can do a car comparison for the Tesla Model S like for like with another rival electric performance car which will be the most efficient cars for new car buyers.

We will compare the Porsche Taycan Turbo S versus Tesla Model S Performance as both are the most powerful variants.

 

 

Power:

Porsche Taycan and Tesla Model S both have Dual motors All Wheel Drive one front and one in the back however, Porsche Taycan produces 560kW while Tesla Model S produces 569kW.

Tesla Model S is also lighter than Porsche Taycan in weight and can reach 0-100km in 2.4 seconds while Taycan needs 2.6 seconds (which is still pretty close).

The biggest difference in this car comparison will be battery range. Porsche Taycan range is 412km while Tesla Model S is an impressive 555 km. This is because Tesla Model S has a 100 kWh battery pack, and Porsche Taycan uses a 93 kWh pack.

 

Interior and Tech:

Tesla’s interior identity is unique with its big screen; it was the first new car to implement the huge 17 inch portrait smart touchscreen in its cars, and it has the 12 inch screen replacing the instrument panel. 

 

 

On the other hand, the Porsche Taycan reversed the game. Porsche installed the 16.8 inch instrument panel screen to display multiple features at once and another 10.9 inch screen.

For years now, Tesla highway autopilot can engage the lane holding highway assist whereas Porsche Taycan lacks this technology.
