Audi RS e-tron GT v Porsche Taycan Turbo - which is best?
Need help buying your next car? Click the following link and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!

If you’re in the market for an imposing & powerful electric car, it doesn’t get much better than these two - the Audi RS e-tron GT & the Porsche Taycan Turbo!

You see, under the skin, they’re effectively the same car. But the question is, which should you choose? Well Mat’s here to help you decide!

Let’s start with the Audi. Powered by two electric motors (one at the front, one at the back) and combined they can produce 598hp. However, the e-tron GT also comes with a boost function, which for 2.5 seconds will deliver 646hp! Not only that, but Audi claim it can hit 60mph in just 3.3 seconds.

Pretty impressive, right? Well the Taycan Turbo can easily match it! It also comes equipped with two electric motors, which combine to deliver 687hp when you launch it! It’s also claimed to be able to hit 60mph in just 3.2 seconds - so it’s slightly quicker & more powerful than the e-tron!

But is that enough to sway your decision towards the Porsche over the Audi? It's time to find out!

      Have you ever tried running the translation of étron from French into English? If not, do it. This should make your choice of an electric car so much easier.

    On a date Porsche wins with a 1.5 Wow effect. Why? Because her parents and friends will know that she got a ride in a Porsche. Nobody cares about Audi.

    Model 3 holds performance just as good as the taycan and so does the model Y, its just the model S and X that lose some but that changed with plaid. Benefit of the doubt though, this was likely filmed before plaid was out.

  • AP-RSI

    2:44 I notice for the first time that the Audi and the Porsche have a pretty similar silhouette from the side. I'm surprised that not only is the base the same, but Audi has also copied the design of the Porsche. That's why I like the look of the Porsche Tycan Cross Turismo better!

    No android auto in the Porsche. Should this really be a surprise? There has to be a very low percentage of Porsche Taycan owners who use android phones.

    Audi E-tron is better looking - more edgy & better design elements. Porsche exterior is bland & kinda boring.

    You're such a carmaniac - as a German, I have to beg you to not call it "Porsch" [ˈpɔɐ̯ʃ] - please call it Porsche [ˈpɔɐ̯ʃə] - check wikipedia for pronounciation

    Is it possible you could get a better microphone or speak at a more constant sound level? Sometimes it's really difficult to listen to what you're saying when you suddenly lower your voice and at the same time the audio from the microphone sounds a bit muffled.

    I have driven both and I have decided to buy the etron gt. It looks in reality way better than the Taycan and its more comfortable to drive. My friend have the Taycan and he said the same, that the etron GT looks more stunni!

    Please don't do fake German accents. It's like you're making fun of German people. Nevertheless, I love your channel. Your comparisons and drag races are best in class. Bugatti Chiron vs F1? OMG!!! This one? Also fantastic.

      @Lifestyle4Dividends .__. okay so everything else that has to do with the company and the batteries I guess. What about track performance, interior/general build quality, ride quality and styling?

    • Lifestyle4Dividends

      @iMasada Yeah lets just forget about the range, MSRP, top speed, charging infrastructure and so on ;)

    Consider the Tesla Model S or Plaid too. Both Tesla models are in the same price range of the Audi and Porsche. For performance and range, the Model S Plaid beats the Audi and Porsche. Tesla's Full Self Driving feature *might* be close to public release.
