The Porsche Taycan has an unfamiliar turbo suffix on the front of its name, while electric cars will never be able to install a turbocharger. Perhaps the reason for this was to follow the general method of Porsche combustion products in this electric model.
The Porsche Taycan Turbo is priced at $ 153,510 and the turbo version of the car is priced at an astronomical $ 187,610. The most expensive version of the Panamera (the Jahar Darb hybrid wagon model) will cost around $ 200,000. There are also many other Porsche products that sell for $ 100,000.
However, Tesla is no longer the only maker of high-powered electric vehicles; Here we look at the performance of the Tesla Model S sedan against the Porsche Taycan 4s and Turbo S.
Comparing the dimensions of Porsche Taycan Turbo s and Tesla Model s
Since the Taycan Turbo S and the Tesla Model S have been rivals since the beginning, it is no surprise to know that the two cars are somewhat similar in size. Of course, the Tesla Model S is about 0.3 inches taller and 0.1 inches wider than the Porsche Taycan. Also, the distance between the front and rear axles of Tesla is 2.3 inches and its height is 2.6 inches longer than the Porsche Taycan.
Also, the capacity of the trunk of the Tesla Model S is 745 liters, which seems to be very large compared to the capacity of the 365 liters of the Taycan Turbo S and the 405 liters of the Model 4s. However, with 79 liters versus 59 Tesla, Porsche will win the competition in terms of front trunk space capacity.
Propulsion and technical power
Tesla has always been proud of the high range of its products, and the Model S is no exception; The range of Tesla Model S Performance with a single charge is 587 km and the battery capacity of this car is equal to 100 kWh.
The Taycan Turbo S and Taycan 4s offer 93.4 and 79 kWh batteries, respectively, and offer much shorter range than the Tesla Model S; The Taycan Turbo S has a range of 412 km on a single charge, and the 4s version travels 407 km on a single full charge.
Also, although both the Tesla Model S and the Porsche Taycan have two electric motors (one motor per axle), the motors are also different. The Porsche Taycan is powered by two permanent magnet synchronous motors, but the Tesla Model S has a synchronous motor at the rear and an induction motor at the front.
The most agile car in this group is the Tesla Model S Performance, which with 762 horsepower and 980 Nm of torque will be able to cross the speed limit of 96 km / h in just 2.4 seconds. The top speed of the Tesla Model S Performance is 262 km / h.
The Porsche Turbo s is also capable of producing 750 hp (616 hp in normal mode) in over-boost mode and 1050 Nm of torque, which will accelerate the car from a standstill to a top speed of 96 km / h in 2.6 seconds.
The Taycan 4s also has an output of 522 hp in over-boost mode and 640 Nm of torque, reaching a top speed of 96 km / h in 3.8 seconds. The top speeds of the Porsche Taycan Turbo S and 4S will be 261 km / h and 250 km / h, respectively. Tesla Model S seems to be the fastest and fastest participant in this group.
Technology and equipment
Tesla is a master of using large screens in its products; For the first time in its production, it used a 17-inch touch screen and a 12-inch odometer digital panel. The Tesla Model S entertainment system lacks Apple CarPlay and Android, but has the ability to play music via Bluetooth.
The Porsche Taycan also features a 16.8-inch digital odometer panel with the ability to display various capabilities simultaneously and a 10.9-inch center display. Apple CarPlay with a new digital assistant that responds with “hey Porsche” is also standard on the Taycan. A front passenger display can also be custom-installed in the cabin of the Porsche Taycan.
In addition The Tesla autopilot system, which has been talked about for years in various forums, has many advantages, and it can easily be said that the Porsche Taycan does not have the same car capabilities as Tesla. However, the question that remains will be who would like to drive their Porsche cars on their own ?! Because he will no longer have the pleasure of riding a Porsche.
Price of Porsche Taycan and Tesla Model s
In this respect, Tesla really has the upper hand, because the price of the base version of the Model S starts at $ 79,990 and increases to $ 99,990 in the performance version. Equipment such as 21-inch wheels, black and white interior trim, fully automatic driving technology, which is not yet available, will increase the price of the full-option version of the Model S to $ 114,900.
On the other hand, the Porsche Taycan 4s has a base price of 103,800, which ends at $ 187,610 in the Turbo S model.
On paper, the performance of the Tesla Model S and Porsche Taycan Turbo S is very close; However, despite some equipment such as standard carbon-ceramic brakes, the Taycan benefits from slightly higher performance tendencies. The Tesla Model S also has advantages such as a larger cargo compartment, more spacious interior and longer range of motion. However, it all depends on your taste, because one person may like juicy steak and another person may like the same steak more maturely.
