Can a 2.5-tonne electric SUV beat a sports car over the 1/4-mile? Well, it’s time to find out as the Tesla Model X Plaid faces off against the almighty Porsche 911 Turbo S! 

So let’s see how these two competitors compare. Starting with the Tesla, it’s equipped with three electric motors that combine to deliver 1,020hp and 1,420Nm of torque. It’s pretty heavy, mind, tipping the scales at 2,464kg, and a new one will set you back around £127,000. 

As for the Porsche, well on paper, it’s noticeably down on power, with its 3.8-litre twin-turbo flat-six able to produce ‘just’ 650hp and 800Nm. However, it’s also massively down on weight compared to the Tesla, weighing in at just 1,650kg! Just like the Tesla it also has four-wheel drive, with the power being sent to all four wheels via an 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox. However, it’s a fair bit more expensive, coming in at around £180,000. 

So we already know the Porsche is an absolute demon off the line, but will the combined power of three electric motors propel the Tesla to victory?! There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!
