I remember when people said the model 3 performance would be just as fast as the taycan.

I think that was based on the nurburgring lap Porsche did, 7:42, which was literally slower than a Renault FWD hatchback.
perhaps Porsche have recalibrated the car and fixed many of the handling, as well as turning up the electric boost to 11. If the Taycan Turbo S being more than 3x the price isn't faster, we'd be really worried.

It would be interesting to see if the 2x as expensive regular Taycan compare to the Model 3 performance. The Taycan is quoted at 0-60 in 4.0s.
