Now here is an interesting comparison. Motor Trend has decided to take the best electric car on the market, the Tesla Roadster and pit it against one of the best handling Porsche sports cars in existence, the new Porsche Boxster Speedster. The Tesla, as most people know is based around the body and chassis of the Lotus Elise, which as we all know is one the premier sports cars on the planet earth. With that in mind one would think that the Tesla would be a world class handler. With all those heavy batteries tucked under the Tesla’s skin though you’d have to figure that something in the performance department would have to give. Click play to see what the guys at Motor Trend thought. I have a feeling you’ll find this very interesting.

    It was interesting that most of their complaints with the Tesla revolved around things that it inherited from the Lotus upon which it was based. The things that were pure Tesla (well, other than lack of engine noise), the kind of liked. The sole exception was the braking which I’m sure was an artifact of the regenerative braking mode that the car goes into before it hits “real” braking.

    Still, got to love that Porsche!
