    Porsche on Wednesday unveiled the production versions of its first fully
electric sports car, the Taycan Turbo and the Taycan Turbo S.

    The vehicles will compete against Tesla's Model S sedan.

    The Model S has better acceleration, a higher top speed, and will very
likely have a longer range.

    However, Porsche has said the Taycan Turbo will be able to sustain its
performance better than the Model S.

Porsche on Wednesday unveiled the production versions of its first fully
electric sports car, the Taycan Turbo and the Taycan Turbo S.

The vehicles will compete against Tesla's Model S sedan when deliveries
began later this year.

Here's how the Taycan Turbo and Turbo S compare to the Model S.
They all have two motors and standard all-wheel-drive configurations.

The Model S has faster acceleration.

The performance trim for the Model S can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 2.4
seconds, while Porsche says the Taycan Turbo S can do the same in 2.6
seconds.

The long-range trim for the Model S can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.7
seconds, while the Taycan Turbo takes three seconds.

But Porsche has said the Taycan Turbo will be able to sustain its
performance better.


In 2018, Porsche's head of electric vehicles Stefan Weckbach said the Taycan
will be able to sustain its performance better than the Model S. The Taycan
"will offer reproducible performance and a top speed which can be maintained
for long periods," he said.
The Model S can have a faster top speed.

The Taycan Turbo and Turbo S both have top speeds of 161 mph. The
performance trim for the Model S has a top speed of 163 mph, though its
long-range trim has a top speed of 155 mph.

Neither vehicle has a clear advantage in charging speed.

It can be difficult to compare charging times between electric vehicles
because there isn't a single metric all automakers use to measure it.

Porsche says the Taycan Turbo and the Taycan Turbo S can charge from 5% to
80% in 22.5 minutes "under ideal conditions." And during a five-minute
charge, they can receive around 62 miles of range, according to Porsche.

Tesla says the latest version of its Supercharger charging stalls can
provide up to 75 miles of charge in five minutes, and a graphic on its
website suggests its vehicles can charge from around 10-15% to 80% in around
30 minutes. In July, MotorTrend published a review of Tesla's new
Supercharger stalls and found that the performance version of Tesla's Model
3 sedan could charge from 10%-80% in 29-37 minutes, depending on the type of
charger used ...

The Model S is very likely to have more range.

The Model S has a maximum range of 345-370 miles, according to the US
Environmental Protection Agency. While the EPA has not yet released the
results of its testing for the Taycan, according to the European testing
cycle, the Taycan Turbo S will have a range of up to 256 miles, while the
Taycan Turbo will have a range of up to 280 miles. Europe's estimates tend
to be more generous than the EPA's, however.

The Model S can seat five in its standard configuration, while five-person
seating is an option for the Porsche.

The Model S seats five adults, while the Taycan Turbo and Turbo S can seat
five in an optional seating configuration. In Porsche's standard
configuration, the cars only seat four.

The Model S has more storage space.

The Model S has 30 cubic feet of storage space, while the Taycan and Taycan
Turbo S have around 16 cubic feet of storage space.

The Model S is far less expensive.

The long-range trim for the Model S starts at $79,990, while the performance
trim starts at $99,990. The Taycan Turbo starts at $153,510, while the
Taycan Turbo S starts at $187,610. The starting prices will eventually be
lowered to $150,900 and $185,000, Porsche says, and cheaper trims will be
announced soon.

Both vehicles de-emphasize buttons and knobs in favor of screens.

The Taycan Turbo and Turbo S have a 16.8-inch digital instrument panel,
10.9-inch infotainment screen, and an 8.4-inch touchpad below the
infotainment screen that can be used for climate settings.

For the Model S, many interior settings are controlled through a 17-inch
touchscreen.

Porsche doesn't have a semi-autonomous driver-assistance system like Tesla's
Autopilot.

Tesla's Autopilot can control steering, braking, and acceleration with
driver supervision in some circumstances. Porsche does not have an
equivalent driver-assistance system, though high-profile crashes involving
Autopilot have raised questions about the extent to which drivers are able
to use it safely.
