We have reached a point in our lives where electric vehicles have won drag race races as if they were forced to do so. Tesla is one of those EVs that hit sports cars and even super sports cars in straight-ahead races. We saw the Model 3 compete with heavy rackets, and many of them saw the four-door sedan win at the end of the line.
This week's latest competitor is the Porsche 911, specifically a Carrera S. CarWow compares the symbol with the internal combustion engine to the Tesla – to say the least with unpredictable results.
Before you watch the video embedded at the top of this page, however, we first have a look through the numbers to see how the fully electric sedan looks strikes against the legendary sports car.
First comes the Tesla Model 3 Performance. With two electric motors on each axle with a combined output of 490 hp (366 kilowatts) and torque of 660 Newton meters (487 pound-feet). Without a gearbox and with a weight of 1,847 kg in tow, the Model 3 sprints from zero to 97 km per hour in just 3.2 seconds.
On the other hand, the Porsche 911 Carrera S is a bit on the shorter end of the stick. Its 3.0-liter twin-turbo six-cylinder engine delivers up to 450 hp (336 kW) and 530 Nm (391 lb-ft) of torque, which is transmitted to the rear wheels via an 8-speed automatic dual clutch system. At 1,590 kg, however, it weighs much less and can reach 60 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds.
