2022 Porsche Panamera vs. 2022 Tesla Model S

While the 2022 Porsche Panamera and the 2022 Tesla Model S are both expected to be fantastic cars, they differ in several ways that make them stand out as unique machines. The first difference between the two models lies in their body styles; the 2022 Porsche Panamera will feature a four-door coupe body style, while the 2022 Tesla Model S will come in both sedan and cabriolet configurations. This difference allows each car to be unique in its way and appeal to different drivers and consumers.

Design & Style

  • Exterior Design 

Both cars feature aerodynamic design with sleek, low-profile bodies and slight overhangs; however, some differences are apparent: The front end of the Tesla is taller and less rounded than that of its German counterpart. Additionally, both cars offer plenty of high-quality materials in their interiors but performance fans will likely favor an aluminum interior on a Porsche to a fiberglass/plastic interior on a Tesla.

  • Interior Design

The Porsche and Tesla both utilize touchscreens for their infotainment systems, but with different results: The Panamera’s screen is completely flush, with a smooth surface that can be hard to interact with, while the Model S’s touchscreen is sharper and easier to use at a glance. Both are fairly responsive, and thankfully offer physical volume and tuning knobs as well; only time will tell if these controls hold up over time with repeated use.

Technology & Safety

  Both of these cars were designed with safety in mind, and each company has a lot to be proud of when it comes to its revolutionary technology. Porsche’s Pedestrian Detection system can identify pedestrians and is able to warn you if they’ve begun walking into your car’s path (which could mean potential disaster). While Tesla doesn’t offer a product like that, their autopilot feature takes away most driving stress—it’ll move around other vehicles and change lanes for you. It’ll even adjust your speed according to traffic conditions! We love these two models because both include automatic emergency braking features, which let you know when an accident is unavoidable and will hit full force within half a second.


Porsche’s naturally aspirated 4-liter V8 will put out 429 hp paired with a PDK gearbox with 10 forward gears. By comparison, Tesla’s hybrid drivetrain—which combines a gasoline engine with an electric motor—produces more than 632 hp and has two motors (one for each axle) to help ensure all-wheel-drive traction in all types of weather. For money value, Porsche wins over Tesla any day of the week due to its richer performance heritage and road feel; it may not be quite as eye-catching as Musk’s grand vision for a sleek electric future, but it makes up for that with better driving dynamics.

The Bottom Line

The key difference between these two cars is their form of power. The 2022 Tesla model S runs on electricity, while its counterparts run on a standard internal combustion engine (ICE). In addition to cost and emissions, several other differences between these two cars make them each more suitable for different kinds of people.
