A new Tesla vs. Porsche video has surfaced, and it showcases the Model 3 Performance in all its glory.
Gone are the days when electric cars were the go-to ride for tree-huggers and light-hearted simpletons. All-electric vehicles, once thought to be boring rides, recently became some of the quickest cars on the planet.
Although it’s common knowledge that the Taycan is the fastest electric sedan, the Model 3 Performance isn’t a complete loser. Actually, it performs quite nicely on the challenging German track.
There is one thing that didn’t impress us, though. The battery percentage of the Tesla Model 3 fell by about 42% after completing just two laps. As seen in the video, the American EV starts at 95% and finishes at 53%. A good reminder that EV-range is very dependent on how the car is driven.
Accused of lacking thrill when compared to their gas-powered counterparts, these cars at least prove that EVs have evolved dramatically. This development feels very exciting and brings a lot of promise for a sustainable and exhilarating future.
Now, sure, the Tesla Model 3 Performance still couldn’t match the Porsche Taycan on the Green Hell. And, that is even with all the customization options for better handling.
All things considered, though, the Porsche all-electric did receive a good fight in the end. And, in all fairness, the Taycan would better compare with the quicker Tesla Model S instead of the Model 3.
