2022 Porsche 718 vs. 2022 Tesla Model X

The 2022 Porsche 718 is a spectacular automobile. Its potent transmissions, interior luxuries and handling makes it coveted by many but afforded by few. How does it compare to the 2022 Tesla Model X, a futuristic car with outstanding performance, huge touchscreens and state of the art gadgetry?

Design & Style

The Tesla Model X is a fastback with an outer frame that resembles a spacecraft. It is tall, with an overall shape that resembles a teardrop, and the interior is spacious and accessible via the unique doors which open like the wings of a bird. The cabin is best described as being technologically advanced yet austere at the same time, since most buttons have been removed in favor of a seventeen inch touchscreen that is vertically oriented that controls most of the vehicle functions.

The Porsche 718 is gorgeous, with an outer frame that resembles the 911 and sits on eighteen inch alloy wheels. It seats just two, but the finish is superb, with seats that are fully ergonomical. Its central console is more traditional, with a variety of controls and buttons and a centralized exhaust outlet can be seen in the exterior.

Technology & Safety

The Porsche 718 is rich in safety tech. Examples of this include automated emergency brakes, rear and front park assistance, blind area monitoring, and cruise control which is adaptive. It also has dampers which are adjustable along with limited slip differential and torque based vectoring.  Luxuries within its cabin include seven inch touchscreens, bi-zone climate control, ventilated seats, satellite radio, Apple CarPlay and mirror which auto dims.

The Tesla Model X has received a five star rating from NCAP. Its countermeasures include blind area monitoring, lane control, emergency automated brakes, and semi-autonomous operation. Luxuries within its cabin are extensive, and include HEPA based air filtration, an audio system with nine speakers, heated seats, heated steering and voice commands.


The Tesla Model X uses dual motor operation with all-wheel drive. It performs well even on slippery surfaces, and those who purchase the Long Range Plus variant will be able to blast from zero to sixty in around 4.4 seconds, reaching a maximum 155 mph top speed. Those that purchase the Porsche 718 Spyder will get a flat 6, 4 liter engine that can accelerate from zero to sixty in just 4.2 seconds while reaching a maximum 189 mph top speed.

The Bottom Line

While the Tesla Model X is a cool looking car, there have been problems with its doors, some find the interior to be underwhelming given the price tag, and the Porsche 718 surpasses it in both acceleration and top speed, which makes it the victor.
