Of the three, the Audi RS6 is obviously going to be the slowest. It's got the biggest engine here, a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 developed with Porsche. However, at just 592 horsepower, it's also the least powerful. We've also seen that its reactions can be a little slow in a drag race.
So the big question is: does the Taycan have what it takes to go up against the 911? Both models wear the Turbo S badge, but only the sports car has an actual turbocharging system. Meanwhile, the EV relies on two electric motors to deliver about 750 horsepower, but only during short bursts of acceleration. Tipping the scales at 2,349 kilograms (5,179 pounds), the top-spec Taycan is actually a little heavier than the RS6, according to European specs (2,209 kg or 4,870 lbs).
And when it comes to the scales, the 911 Turbo S has an obvious advantage at 1,655 kg (3,649 lbs). Also, Porsche charges more for this model, so it's probably considered the true flagship of the company. It would be a shame if it lost here, and it doesn't. Once the flag drops, the RS6 is left behind, as the Taycan begins to lose ground slowly to its flat-six stablemate. This result falls in line with what we saw during Carwow's drag race released in July 2020.
