Audi Says E-Tron GT Will Outsprint Tesla Model S P100D
Will do so by getting “some genes from Porsche.”
And by adding “a lot of Audi genes.”
Still not due until 2020, the E-tron GT will boast range on par with the E-tron SUV (248 miles WLTP) but be “focused more towards power,” according to Audi’s powertrain boss.
In order to beat the Tesla Model S P100D, Audi would need to make the E-tron GT zip from 0 to 60 MPH in well under 2.5 seconds. The P100D officially hits 60 MPH in 2.5 seconds, but timed results are closer to 2.3 seconds.
Audi says the E-Tron GT will use a Tesla-like skateboard platform that borrows lots of bits from the Porsche Taycan.
The E-tron GT concept will make its official debut at the Los Angeles Motor Show in November and we’ll be on site for the reveal.
