Regardless of early criticism of the Porsche Taycan – primarily because of its low EPA-estimated vary and excessive beginning worth (extra on this later) – the all-electric Porsche has confirmed to be an impressively spectacular automobile.
The range-topping Taycan Turbo S is certainly one of, if not the, quickest production cars of all time, proper up on the prime of the listing with the Tesla Model S Efficiency. Each vehicles can speed up to 60 mph in fewer than 2.5 seconds. On paper, the gas-powered Lamborghini Huracan EVO can obtain the identical acceleration time, give or take.
After we have a look at the Taycan’s excessive beginning worth, we now have to place issues into perspective. To start with, Porsche’s are expensive. Second, to search out one other automobile that achieves such unimaginable acceleration, except for the Mannequin S, would require spending an entire lot more cash.
These electrical efficiency vehicles, whereas costly, can speed up as properly, if not higher, than super-expensive hypercars and supercars. In actual fact, the Lambo within the video might set you again over $250,000.

Shifting on to the race above. We encourage you to put your bets. The Taycan Turbo S and Lamborghini Huracan EVO are fairly well-matched. What’s going to occur in these three real-world acceleration exams?
