Brooks from drag times just did a big video on the turbo S. On an Unprepped drag strip it did 10.5@130 mph, and 0-60 in 2.4. He said it has 10.4 on a prepped surface. The model S is nowhere near that trap speed - I recall they trap 124-125 so the Taycan really moves and some of the track times are ultra impressive like the Top Gear track it matches one of the Koenigseggs.
Tesla can't match the drag strip times due to the outdated battery compared to the new battery tech in the Model 3 as well as the lack of power at the top end, which the Porsche has due to the 2-speed trans, however it will be interesting to see how the Plaid model will do when it comes out (eventually...)
