I could never understand why people are comparing "apples to oranges" for this kind of runs. :facepalm:

If they insist, then use a F15 fighter jet vs any fast electric cars. Smiling Face With Sunglasses

They do these kind of runs because they know the sponsored car will win.

A fair comparison would be to enter the two cars into a touring car race, and of course, charging time will be included into the overall GT time.

This is the modern equivalent of the fast horse vs. automobile races of the 1900s.

Not really, racing is not straight line acceleration. There are a lot of other factors that affect "racing" performance, like turning, handling, brake ...
If 0-100 is everything, F1 season would be done in a week, when each race takes a few seconds

The prices are insane for both and obviously esp the Rimac but just shows how laughable retrogrouches are...EVs are only just beginning to be explored and nowhere near plateaued vs this top ICE (even w it being EV-assisted), which got destroyed. It's OVER.
Hard work, inheritance, interest on interest accumulating, and stock and real estate speculation. It's all good.

How can you get so triggered over such an awesome race? LOL, this is why I'll never leave this place.

I think you read it wrong, not triggered at all, race was awesome, I just know there are some ppl who refuse change and I think they're just silly. EV is here.

My bad. Ev is here, ICE is here, pick what you like and go to town :) I'd like to see that car on a set of slicks and a prepped track.. Unreal.

The EV, that thing is next level. 8.62 on street tires on some unknown runway? lol. I'd like to see this go up against whatever Koenigsegg has up their sleeve

Hey bud, out and out performance isn’t the be all, end all. Most f1 drivers would go back to the NA in a heartbeat.

That’s why Porsche is still making manuals for people who still crave the analog experience.

I was unaware that you could get a Taycan in a manual.

True, I don't even consider drag racing to be a real performance indicator. Prefer handling way over straight-line (so I'd rather get a Miata over a bunch of muscle cars). However, this race is a sign of things to come (or already arrived).
