Seems plausible because a Model 3 beat a car (Jag 8) at Laguna that beat Taycan by 20 seconds at Nurburgring. The car the Model 3 beat has a top speed about 200mph so that may be a limiter but maybe not. The Plaid S just matched that Jag S at Nurburing- does that hint at a much higher top speed for the Plaid S? What Tesla just did with a Plaid Model S prototype is beat a top end 911 that weights 1000lbs and has no interior room with a Massive S. There are still quicker 911s but it is a huge difference. Such a difference that it seems to have caused Porsche to resort to lying to the public- nothing new for a VW company. Now Porsche is saying it didn't use the 'Turbo' S variant of Taycan in its testing which doesn't seem remotely credible not even against Porsche's practice of understating things. Porsche also claimed it used a stock Taycan, but it was a camouflaged mule, and did it have the same tires and by some accounts it was stripped of seats. Porsche seems to be trying for a do over. If now claims to test an Taycan Turbo S at the track I think we can be pretty sure it isn't anything like a stock Taycan Turbo S. Tesla has said its 7 seat production S will be even faster than the 20 seconds faster than the Taycan at Nurburgring. Headline coming soon: Tesla pick up faster than Taycan Turbo S at Nurburgring. Have the impression there has to be a 911 Porsche made that the Tesla Semi sans trailer could be at Nurburgring.
