2022 Porsche Taycan vs. Tesla
When you’re looking for a fully electric performance vehicle, two manufacturers are sure to be at the top of your list. Porsche and Tesla. While Tesla is relatively new to the car business, it has built a reputation for building EVs that are both luxurious, and fast. Porsche on the other hand has made a name for themselves by building cutting-edge high-performance sports cars for over seventy years.
Quality – Porsche vs. Tesla
Tesla vehicles, known for their impressive performance, are unfortunately known for their build quality issues as well. From finish and paint issues, to large and uneven panel gaps, build quality issues have been reported by new Tesla buyers. On the other hand, Porsche has recently earned a top spot on the J.D. Power 2021 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study. In one study, Porsche customers experienced an average of 86 problems per 100 vehicles, which is well below the industry average of 121, while Tesla came out with an average of 176 problems per 100 vehicles. With that being said, you are twice as likely to experience problems with a Tesla vehicle over a Porsche.
Power and Capability
The Tesla Model S Plaid recently received considerable attention for an impressive 0-60 time of just 1.98 seconds. Further research revealed that the 1.98 seconds is only achievable on a specially prepared dragstrip, and the Model S Plaid receives a battery and motor cooling regimen to prevent overheating. Porsche, on the other hand, has put the Taycan through extensive stress-testing, and has tackled the 0-124 mph run 26 times in a row. The 2022 Taycan has been praised for its outstanding handling and overall driving dynamics, while Tesla engineers have replaced the steering wheel in the Model S with a yoke, making it more difficult and less safe to drive.
Both Tesla and Porsche operate about 200 stores in the United States, and a luxury car deserves a luxury experience that only an amazing dealership can provide. Porsche’s finely-tuned dealer networks are more than suited to take care of customers, before and even after the sale, providing a superb experience long after you’ve purchased your vehicle. Unfortunately, Tesla is having a hard time making sure their customers have a good experience after their Tesla has been purchased.
It is more than clear that Porsche knows more about building sports and luxurious cars while providing luxurious service over Tesla. That means that your Porsche dealer is better equipped to handle any questions or concerns that you may have when it comes to your new Taycan. While Tesla is improving rapidly, so is Porsche and that should be clear by now. If you’re looking for an electric vehicle that delivers outstanding performance along with personalized dealer support, then look no further than the 2022 Porsche Taycan.
