The 3.3-second 0-60 time of the Audi RS 6 Avant might be a previously unimaginable feat for a station wagon, but, in the world of high-performance German all-wheel drive cars, it’s expectation. Porsche, Audi’s longtime and future rival at Le Mans, makes two of these cars, each branded Turbo S. You can see where this is going.

Motorsport Magazine took the RS 6 to a track to take on the Porsche Taycan Turbo S and the 992 generation 911 Turbo S. Strange, but they are each other’s closest rivals: big four-wheel drive touring cars from the same company. that provide completely different ideas of what performance and luxury look like together.
The RS 6 may be fast, but the results are not surprising. The Taycan gets a head start early, while the 911 and RS 6 stay together early. Almost immediately, the 911 is on its feet, and the endurance race between the two Porsche looks a lot like the last time someone went up against the 911 Turbo S and the Taycan Turbo S head-to-head. The 911 Turbo S completes the .62-mile race in 18.9 seconds on an unprepared surface, beating the Taycan, which clocks in at 19.7 seconds. The Audi is slightly slower than any Porsche, finishing in 21.3 seconds.
The RS 6 is fast, but keeping up with Porsche’s great high-end tourers isn’t an easy task for any car with the comforts and cargo space that a luxury pickup requires. Of course, if beating a 911 Turbo S in an endurance race is a requirement for your truck, the aftermarket already has a solution for you.
