The new Tesla Model 3 crushes the Porsche Taycan 4S

In the ever-competitive world of electric cars, each new model is scrutinized and compared to its rivals. The latest performance and cost analysis between the 2024 Porsche Taycan 4S and the new Tesla Model 3 Performance (M3P) reveals a significant gap, putting Tesla in a position of overwhelming strength.

A price gap that defies all competition

The first point of friction between these two models is undoubtedly the price. The Porsche Taycan 4S costs more than double the price of the Tesla Model 3 Performance. This price gap is particularly striking given the performance and feature advantages offered by the Tesla at a significantly lower cost.

A remarkable difference in performance

In terms of performance, the Tesla also outperforms the Porsche. The Taycan 4S is not only 30.4% less autonomous in terms of distance traveled per charge, but it also lags noticeably behind in acceleration and top speed. In fact, it takes the Porsche 20.7% longer to reach the same speeds as the Tesla, and its top speed is 4.9% lower.

Cargo space: Tesla takes the advantage

One of the most practical aspects of a car, cargo space, is also in Tesla’s favor. The Model 3 Performance offers 28.6% more cargo space compared to the Taycan 4S. The latter model suffers from larger exterior dimensions (length +5.2% and width +2.7%) without managing to offer proportionally larger interior space.

Handling and weight: Tesla dominates

When it comes to handling, weight plays a crucial role. The Porsche Taycan 4S weighs 748 pounds more than the Tesla Model 3 Performance, making it significantly less agile. This additional weight handicaps the Porsche, especially in situations requiring speed and responsiveness.

Value for money: an obvious choice

For the price of a single Porsche Taycan 4S, it’s possible to purchase two Tesla Model 3 Performances and still have enough money left over for a two-week luxury vacation. This observation highlights the enormous difference in value between the two vehicles.

Conclusion

In summary, the comparative analysis between the Porsche Taycan 4S and the Tesla Model 3 Performance leaves no room for doubt: the Tesla offers better value, better performance and greater practicality at a significantly lower price. In this context, choosing the Porsche might seem incomprehensible to many, unless you prioritize criteria other than those usually decisive in choosing a performance electric car.
