Explaining its results, Top Gear stated that the best figures recorded for the Tesla Model S Performance during its battle with the Taycan were a 0-60 mph time of 2.83 seconds, a 0-100 mph time of 6.64 seconds, and a quarter-mile time of 11.23 seconds at 123.2 mph. These figures were worse than the 0-60 mph time of 2.68 seconds, 0-100 mph time of 6.46 seconds, and quarter-mile time of 11.08 seconds at 124.0 mph listed by the publication in its comparative video.


So Musk is giving them crap, then Top Gear slaps him back down... Top gear showed better times than what they were able to eek out of the Tesla on the day of the race against the Taycan.

Honestly, they should have just published the crappier Tesla times, not the best that they ever recorded... all cars do different in varying conditions, it'd have been a lot more useful to post up what they both recorded on that day, rather than trying to play nice and post up better Tesla times than what they actually recorded... Seems like Top Gear was trying to play nice based on their previous negative Tesla issues, but this time it back-fired on Tesla, not Top Gear.
