2016 Tesla Model X Vs 2016 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S – Drag Race Video


It’s not like the lowly Porsche ever had a chance against the mighty, all-electric Model X.

A 2016 Tesla Model X is pitted against a 2016 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S. On paper, the Porsche might have a chance, but when the rubber hits the tarmac, it’s all Model X.

Morale of the story, don’t bring a gasser to fight an EV in a race between street legal offerings.

This Ain’t Gonna End Well For The Porsche

  1. Not much of a ‘Drag Race’, mostly a ‘StreetRace’, without traffic! No lights! No Timer! No Results Board!

    1. David Murray says:

      And how long is that parking lot? It’s not even 1/8 mile by the look of it. maybe 1/16.

      1. Miggy says:

        Maybe 100m

  2. Marty says:

    Put them on a race track. Morale: your Tesla will finish 2 minutes slower on a 5-minute track. If battery doesn’t die, of course.

    1. Will Davis says:

      I don’t know if you’re trying to be funny or just plain stupid, but we don’t like your kind on this website.

      To correct your idiocy, it’s unlikely the battery will die IN A MERE FIVE MINUTES.

      1. Mark says:

        It is likely to derate.

        That’s not something you see with a car from a traditional automaker.

        1. Jacob says:

          Yeah, you do see it from regular carmakers as well, see the Mustang GT350 class-action lawsuit. http://jalopnik.com/shelby-gt350-mustang-owners-suing-ford-over-overheating-1793541621

    2. Koenigsegg says:

      In my 4 years of driving, I’ve never been to nor driven at a race track. Only in video games.

      There is no race track on your commute to work or school in your every day, day to day life. And that goes for everybody.

      Race tracks are fictitious places for testing, high speeds and wasting gas.

      Tesla’s are real cars designed for real world driving and just happen to give real ass spankings to any type of car that happens to be next to an almighty Tesla at a light or a stop, just guzzling gas waiting to be smoked by a gasless electric tyrant 🙂

    3. TheJode says:

      These are SUVs, the Model X being a seven-seater. If you’re taking an SUV to a track day, you’re just doing it wrong! The same goes for a large premium sedan like a BMW 7-Series, Mercedes S-class, or Tesla Model S. Right tool for the job…

  3. Will Davis says:

    The tesla guy jumped the gun. She hadn’t even said ‘go’.

    1. K L says:

      Spoken like someone who has yet to experience the instant torque of an electric motor. Go take a test drive with ANY EV. It might look like “jumping the gun”, but that’s the new normal.

    2. Koenigsegg says:

      It’s called instant torque. Tesla’s leap from a standstill when you smash the accelerator pedal.

      Just a perk of the electric motor

  4. John says:

    I liked that blonde shape better than either cars. Instant infinite torque of electric motor definitely beat gas engine from start line, but once it gets to speed it is the efficiency and longevity of the power plants that matters. So it’s gas engine/transmission wear vs battery degradation that matters.

  5. James says:

    Is it 1981? Is the lady in the miniskirt really necessary?

    1. Carrier says:

      YES, car hoes will always be en vogue.

  6. Nicholas says:

    Audis used to be nice cars.

  7. Mister G says:

    LOL Model x is going to race with falcon wings open, maybe then cayenne has a chance.

  8. Mister G says:

    wow 2016 cayenne turbo s costs $150k, more than a model x lol
