Top Gear claimed to have drag race times comparing a Porsche Taycan Turbo S versus a Tesla Model S. However, the times for the Model S appear to be from 2017 data.
Elon Musk says that the DragTimes analysis is correct regarding Top Gear race. Elon Musk indicates an upcoming software update will give Model S an additional 50hp and this should beat the Porsche Taycan Turbo S both in 0-60 mph and quarter mile. This would be an increase of nearly 10% in peak power capability.
