This makes zero sense. We already have i4 M50 acceleration videos, compared to Tesla Model3 PERFORMANCE, and we saw the M50 clearly out accelerates Model3 PERFORMANCE from around 3 sec onwards. In this graph, even the Tesla model 3 LONG RANGE is shown as generating more acceleration than i4 M50 in that time ?Theoretical acceleration during the first 10 seconds, standing start, data from motormatchup.
Acceleration in G, it corresponds to the wow factor

In this graph M50 has a higher acceleration then TM3LR, exept from 3sec to 6sec, but the M50 is already aheadThis makes zero sense. We alreay have i4 M50 acceleration videos, compares to Tesla Model3 PERFORMANCE, and we saw the M50 clearly out accelerates Model3 PERFORMANCE from around 3 sec onwards.

I don’t know how they make this theoretical data but there must be data from dragy gps and alike to compare real results.Theoretical acceleration during the first 10 seconds, standing start, data from motormatchup.

They use motor's curves like this :I don’t know how they make this theoretical data but there must be data from dragy gps and alike to compare real results.
the m440i with higher G force then the m50 in the first 2 sec?? The Tiguan almost matching the e40? The m4 faster then plaid?? Hard to believe as G force is basically acceleration, where electrical cars have a faster start.
Thanks for this real life feedback!I have driven most of those cars
Not the Tesla Plaid but the P100DL. When full battery, it really brings face-melting 0-100 accelerations. When passing some cars on country roads, it just goes like an absolute rocket. It's the absolute reference for straight-line G forces that I've experienced.
The 458 I think has 100hp more than the 430, which I had the chance to enjoy. The torque curve is completely opposite of the Tesla, so it comes alive at 5000 and at 120 km/h. Torque building engines are so rewarding and fun, it's in a different league than the Tesla, more rollercoaster than rocket.
The 911 4S (depending on generation of course) is like the ferrari, only less, but I would say more suitable for our local conditions here. In terms of G-forces, I experienced it as maybe 65% of the Tesla, but then the sound added 35% back onto it, hehe. It was more like the Tesla Model 3 Performance in terms of G, but then again, opposite curves, coming alive at 4000RPM and building, instead of being geared to just be slower and slower. This data probably has a 992, which has excellent launch control, explaining the G-forces.
IPace was just like an SUV, but a bit faster, my neighbour has one. Didn't try the Tiguan though!
