The target: 0.70 miles per hour in 2.4 secs. It is the record and the bar through which all the production vehicles can be assessed. Just 2 cars have accelerated to Sixty miles per hour so rapidly; recently, we tested the Tesla Model S P100D 2017 and the 911 Porsche Turbo S 2021.

We do not do ties at Motor Trend; any comparison must have a winner if you’ve not noticed. I asked driving test editor Chris Walton to examine the results through an electron microscope to find one. Our Vbox twenty Hz GPS data logger tests a vehicle’s location Twenty times a second to provide high results, but we round up to the closest tenth of a second for our published results. It rarely causes a problem, but in this case, it is essential.

According to the data file, the latest 911 Porsche Turbo S 2021 takes just 2.348666958 secs to accelerate from a standstill to sixty miles per hour. The Tesla was infinitely faster, taking only 2.275507139 sec. Put the calculator; it is the only 0.073159819-sec difference. An actual blink takes 0.1 to 0.4 seconds, according to Harvard Medical School.

Most importantly, while the Vbox provides data to the 9th decimal place, the company officially certifies the accuracy to 0.01 sec. It puts the Tesla at 2.28 secs and the Porsche at a 2.35 sec time which rounds down. Checkout This New Porsche 911

Porsche Vs. Tesla:

However, I don’t think this means Tesla will win an actual drag race. The Model S gets the holeshot, reaching thirty miles per hour in 0.87 sec to the Porsche’s 0.94, but it loses steam at higher speeds. A quarter-mile time of 10.5 sec at 125.0 miles per hour is ridiculously fast for a production car on street wheels, but it isn’t fast enough to beat a 911 Porsche Turbo S 2021 on the track. The Porsche may launch significantly softer, but once it gets moving, the 911 will overtake the Tesla before the finish line, with an 11.3-sec quarter-mile and a trap speed of 132.3 miles per hour.

It is worth dwelling a bit more time with the spec chart here. A 680 horsepower, 4,891lb battery-electric sedan and a 640 horsepower, 3,628lb twin-turbo 6 cylinder coupe are the fastest production vehicles Motor Trend has ever tested.
Neither used the stickiest road tires globally: the Tesla rode on Michelin Pilot Super Sports, the 911 on Pirelli P Zeros. These are 2 of America’s best-engineered and best-programmed, factory-built, all-wheel-drive, street-legal drag racers.

Of course, the 911Porsche Turbo S 2021 we tested is capable of much longer than drag racing. Looking at the graph, you will find that it stops from sixty miles per hour in 97 ft, which is supercar territory but not a record. Keep in mind, this is on the old P Zeros, not the Corsas or the Trofei, making your performance better.

The skidpad and figure 8 tests both tell the same story. Both are in the top ten all-time on standard Pirelli P Zeros. Place this monster Porsche Turbo S on a track like WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca so that it will set a 711 horsepower Ferrari F8 Tributo’s lap time in 0.7 sec.

(Almost) Unmatched Performance:

Logically, what this 911 Porsche Turbo S 2021 can use when tested to its limits is unmatched. And anybody with $204,850 will walk into a Porsche store today and purchase one.

Subjectively, it’s almost as superb. The Turbo S is pure magic on the track. The way it moves is natural, just like the way an athlete or a wild animal moves. Drivers are entirely comfortable driving, well beyond the speed limit. Reread it. A vehicle that comes in the hair of setting performance records around the board is still extremely confident and fast to drive quickly., despite depending on a solid sports-car tire instead of a proper supercar tire.

However, there is a limit to the 911 Porsche Turbo S 2021. The Turbo genealogy’s fault, but the 911 Turbo S lacks everything on the road because of all the Porsche GT personality it has on the road. It gets a little cold and clinical on a track. Will a set of Trofeos or a Pilot Sport Cup 2 solve the problem? We would like to know. In any case, this test showed, it is already in the wake of the powerful 911 GT2 RS of the previous generation.
