I got rid of my 997.1 manual and currently drive a Tesla model 3 performance. The Tesla is significantly quicker and the power much more accessible up to licence losing speeds. A single gear and no need for gear change makes overtaking/accelerating effortless. It also seems to corner pretty well although I have yet to go out on nice driving roads really. I'm shocked at how little loss of traction there is the tyres are not actually that wide but it seems to put the power down very well. The single gear and electric motor combination is a big reason for it feeling so quick. Whilst there are some things (build quality, internal materials, sense of occasion) etc. I slightly miss it really is a pretty good car (except this misaligned driver side window but that is currently getting fixed). I can also justify accelerating quickly as its cleaner fuel (ignoring particulates etc. from tyres) and the fact that you regenerate electricity when lifting off the accelerator means it is more efficient and less guilt inducing for driving a bit more briskly. I've found brake use start to irritate me now in the family s-maxr due to wasted energy which came as a bit of a surprise. The lack of engine noise I think adds to experience and makes the acceleration seem quicker. It also means you get less attention which is a bonus.
