taycan 4s vs model 3 performance (sorry, video only in german):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uIE7ebz2hwY
price: 115000 vs 55000 (taycan 4s has ceramic brakes in this test), both are on winter tires. 1st day (0-100, drift) on wet road surface, 2nd day (time of 3 rounds on an old airport track, a mix of slalom-straights-90degree turns) on dry surface.
0-100 (average of 5 measurements): 3.78s (taycan) vs 3.64s (model 3).
track time: 3m55s28 (taycan), 3m54s86 (model 3).
once again, a very good performance from the model 3, this time against a much, much more expensive car.

you can't see the prices for the cars on the table, so here they are:
model 3 performance 56000
bmw m2 competition 67000
porsche 718 cayman 59000
honda civic type r 38000
porsche taycan 86000 (just for comparison here, as only electric sports car other than the model 3). all prices in euros, in Germany.

Here is comparison matrix table made by @ilias

107a11763f90.jpg?550x800m

Both Model 3 Perf and M2 Competition have green in 8 boxes. You have to look for the meaning of each box according to what matters most to you personally.

I made a table, where I compare model 3 perf. to its rivals. which is the best sports car the average man can buy, today? best means: 1)fast, 2)not (very) expensive, 3)not polluting/efficient; all three at the same time.
the best combination seems to be, today and in the near future, the model 3.

lap time at Assen circuit, Netherlands (December 2020): 2.02.13s
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ftOLndksnDI
no data on battery state of charge. seems it's a stock car (no modifications reported).

this is the best video so far of a flying lap at Nürburgring!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IXkEEF76OZE
with a stock car, and with some traffic, the driver manages a time of about 8.10s. with track pack, I think 8.00s (and even less) is perfectly possible.

1/2 mile time: about 19.5sec
source: multiple videos (from the same youtube channel), for example:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EsrzNx-zb-Y
or
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dbLS_BpMkXQ
according to the driver battery was about 80% or so.

lap times at Laguna Seca (August 2020):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xmMZs_Tz41Q
best time 1.41.02; battery at 87%, car was stock except for brake pads and Bridgestone RE71s; so a time about 1.42.50 with the stock Michelin pilot sport 4S seems the best possible (RE71 about 1.5sec faster than pilot sport 4S, according to this video:

Observer  2y ago

Tesla Model 3 performance was participating in an annual sports car comparison in Sweden which were published this week. In this comparison several car magazines reporters drive same cars several days and give comments as well as overall points and rankings. Track times are driven by same semi professional ex competition driver (already same guy more than 3 years on the row). All cars are road condition and best lap time is recorded only when two consequential times are within 0,2s. While these reporters have very likely driven all possible new road legal cars during last years, I think this is very unbiased comparison of Tesla Model 3 under the heading "sports car". In reality it should not ranked like sports car, but seems to be many claims that it is.
Anyway lap times Tesla were 11th and ranking 20th out of 21 cars. Tesla got a lot of claims for handling and breaks especially in high speed.
Cars were:
Aston Martin Vantage
Audi R8 V10 Perfor-mance
BAC Mono
BMW M2 Competition
BMW M850i xDrive
BMW Z4 M40i
Cupra Ateca
Hyundai i30 N Fastback Perfor-mance Pack
Lotus EvoraGT410 Sport
McLaren 600 LT Spider
McLaren Senna
Mercedes-AMG A 35 4Matic
Mercedes-AMG E 53 4Matic
Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door 63 S
Porsche 911 GT3 RS (991)
Porsche 911Carrera S (992)
Porsche 718 Boxster T
Renault Mégane R.S. Trophy
Tesla Model 3 Performance
Toyota GR Supra
Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR

Do you think it's gonna beat the next-gen M3? It's heavier (probably, since battery packs weigh hundreds of lbs), and it has 20 less horsepower ( if those rumors are to be believed about the M3 having 503 horses), but the instant torque of EVs and all wheel drive means it will be faster in a straight line. Around corners, I'm not so sure. But here's to hoping the best car wins.

Pretty fun to compare with my 400 ps petrol car that has very similar performance (measured with the same gps device, Dragy):
0-100: 3.90s
0-200: 13.78s
100-200: 9.88s
