These are not drag racing cars. Such a useless comparison.
If these reviewers really want to review these cars, then do it for what these are made for.

Yes we know. It doesn't have to be reiterated every drag race video that these aren't drag cars. The public drags them, so there's some relevance with regards to how the public uses them.

Exactly lol, all these people are quick to complain when in reality 90% of the time that most people will exploit their speed is in a straight line...

The M8c isn't a drag car exactly, but the Taycan Turbo S most certainly is. Having 100% of your torque at 0 RPM fits the needs of a drag car very well.

And as already mentioned, the majority of wizzing contests between fast cars are done from a red light, followed by a Highway roll.

Agree.

Ive been watching his/their posts for some time, they do a good job overall and have the pertinent data which I like:

Dig
Roll
Data

Some of the commentary is bit over the top with the tone of the host but Im ok with that.

OK, but somehow it's a shame that there are so many youtube clips just focussing on the straightline. The risk is that the ignorant spectator believes that this discipline defines the vehicle and reduces the car to his quarter mile time. While actually, it's just sluggish journalism and so much easier to do than a car review.

I test drove a taycon and felt so cramped compared to even an m8 coupe. I really wanted to love the taycan bc I think it looks bad ass but I wasn't impressed with the interior and find their cupholder placement really stupid (as a Florida driver I always have a drink in the car so it's a big deal to me lol). The back seat is also tiny compared to the m8 gc

Maybe a complete car noob might think that, but surely it won't apply to anybody with any length of time in enthusiast circles. We all know the game. After all, drag strip times/comparisons have been a thing since before I was old enough to drive. Motor Trend, Car & Driver, etc. have been doing this exact same thing for decades.

Agreed this guy does a nice job. Vid is very professional even tho he may just be doing it for fun.

That Taycan is a very nice looking car. Porsche tries really hard to take my money.

Well...it's mostly about these thousands of reviewers who portray themselves as experts.
And yes, every time they post these repetitions, someone will post Similar reply

No doubt about it. I drove M850i at BMW event and I can only imagine about M8C.
But I'm glad that for a change there is a post other than new M3/4

Sir there is no try--- only do with Porsche... they are hyper profitable as a brand.

PS: that was my best Yoda
