The Tesla Roadster may be super fast but this 2015 Porsche 911 Turbo is insane. This modified supercar can go from 0 to 60mph in just 1.7 seconds, which makes it the fastest accelerating car. The Tesla Roadster, as claimed, can go from 0 to 60 mph in 1.9 seconds.

Currently, Tesla Roadster is not available on the market for sale but the company has revealed its specifications on its official website.

Apart from the Tesla Roadster, Czinger 21C, the world’s first 3D printed hybrid car can also go from 0 to 60mph in 1.9 seconds. However, this hypercar is also not available for sale at the moment.

The factory-made Porsche 911 Turbo can go from 0 to 60mph in about 2.9 seconds. Sam from ByDesign Auto built a 2015 Porsche Turbo and the YouTube channel DragTimes reported on the performance of the car in his video.

How A Porsche 911 Turbo Is Faster Than A Tesla Roadster

In this video, the guy tested this supercool Porsche twice. Due to a ton of modifications, at first attempt, the car got such acceleration that its front went up almost two feet in the air.

In the Porsche 911, the engine is at the rear and the car’s sticky tires made it perform a wheelie on the track.

The upgrade and tuning of the vehicle led it to achieve 60mph in just 1.7 seconds.

If we analyze Tesla Roadster, then it’s an electric supercar and we know that electric cars have very few moving parts. A couple of electric motors, usually two or three in a hypercar like this, along with a big battery pack constitute the majority of an electric powertrain. On the other hand, ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) cars have lots of mechanical moving parts. What I mean to say is that it takes time for ICE cars to accelerate and there are energy losses too.

Even the comment section on YouTube is full of surprise reactions. One of the commenters said, “You don’t even understand how quickly I clicked on this video.” This shows the kind of excitement this car created. Another guy from the list was excited to see Tesla Roadster go head on head with this beast.

And honestly, so do I.
