Maybe I'll see if one of the Seattle area folks with a Turbo wants to go have a race next week. :devil:

What's max G force in 4S and Turbo?
I read it somewhere it's 1.3 in Turbo S. How about the other 2 models?

It's funny because I was wondering this exact same thing yesterday after launching my Continental GT. I hope my Taycan 4s can match the punch haha

I haven't had a drag race yet but I did time some launches.

Taycan 4S 20" Summer Tires in normal road conditions (just a regular city street, decent but not great road)was consistently around 3.64 0-60 mph. The 5-60 rolling start is even more impressive around 3.8 flat, which is faster than a lot of supercars. The 992 4S put up 5-60 @ 4 flat for C&D and their numbers are usually best case (track conditions) scenario. Something like the Panamera Turbo really struggles without launching, as it has a 4.3 5-60.

I haven't done the quarter mile yet, I'll try to soon, but it has to be sub 12. The 4S pulls surprisingly hard past 120.

Just my gut (or should I say butt?) feeling is that the Turbo covers the 0-20 mph faster and it's only a bit ahead beyond that. If anyone around Seattle with a Turbo wants to find an empty strip and do some tests, let me know.
