A pretty good comparison and guess who comes out looking good?

Snippet
It was developed in a world in which Tesla had already shown what was possible. But Porsche hasn't copied every aspect of the Model S. Contrary to the Tesla, which first introduced the one-pedal feel, the Turbo S prioritises coasting over regeneration. This makes a huge difference on B-roads, where the Porsche shines as an effortless glider capable of devouring tarmac at a dizzying rate. The transition from electric to hydraulic deceleration is all but imperceptible at any speed, and at any pedal pressure. Indeed the Taycan's stopping distances eclipse even the 911 GT2 RS, which takes some beating. It's this awesome and almost surreal fast-forward, fast-rewind cycle that lingers in the memory well into the night. Last time this happened, it was after a day spent in the Ferrari 488 Pista.
