Is Audi RS E-tron GT better than the Porsche Taycan?

2021 Audi RS E-tron GT video review: this or a Taycan?

This is the new 2021 Audi E-tron GT, Audi’s new electric saloon, which shares loads of its underpinnings with the Porsche Taycan. And it’s tested here in not just one but two versions.

First up, the RS E-tron GT, the 475kW really quick version of the new battery electric E-tron GT. It can crack the 0-100km/h sprint in 3.3 seconds and has a range of 455km.

Then there’s the (slightly) lesser E-tron GT Quattro, as powerful as a ’60’ Audi according to the Audi configurator and the company’s slightly weird naming system. To you and us, that means it has up to 390kW and a ‘slower’ 0-100km/h time, although that still means 4.1 seconds. Its range, though, is 480km. Although that only gets you a white car with no options, so you’ll add to that in no time.

Here’s what they’re like. Can cars which share so much with the Porsche feel that different to the Taycan? Or could they even be better than the Porsche?
