I came across this list, posted in one of my social media feeds, that compiled 5-60 mph performance times as measured by Car and Driver. We all know the Taycan is fast--very fast--and these figures provide more context on the Taycan's performance. The goal of this exercise was to examine real world performance speeds without the traction and launch issues cars face from a dead stop.

Turbo S within the top 3 fastest is great to see and this is just the first model year!

Once again the 918 shows just how ahead of the curve it was in 2015. Unreal.
Yeah and that's just 5-60, something it wasn't focused around. So even more impressive!

Around a road course track it does even more damage!
