Either way I think the video did a good job of showing the difference between the two in other areas. They didn't show any back to back performance tests to see if/when the Model S drops off performance wise compared to the Taycan. Or run multiple laps and show the lap times increase over time. That would have been a good test.

It will be interesting to see what the Model S Plaid brings and how much closer to the Taycan's price it will be.
The new Raven model S has upgraded motors and cooling system it probably can do multiple straight line pulls without dropping power but it will probably pull power on the road coarse.



Tesla is doing some testing right now:

Bloomberg who has written more negative news on Tesla than other major publishers produced some positive news on Model 3 improvements:

The sound and interior make the AMG a clear and obvious winner. If I wanted a power wheels interior I would pick the Tesla.

Owning a car is so much more than 0-60. It is not superior engineering that make Electric Motors so amazing. By their very nature they make all the torque from 0 rpm. The faster you spin them the worse they get.

I guess people who are amazed at Tesla are impressed by simple things. It is like looking at magnet and being stunned at how it hold on to a piece of carbon steel.

Electric motors are not a secret. If the rest of the car was impressive, then that would be something (Taycan) but as it is sold today, every single corner possible was cut and it is painfully obvious the interior and QC was the first to get the AX.

You get me in ways no woman ever has or will. . We need to get beers, and take me for a ride in the Z.
