We really do live in some strange times. I mean who would have thought about a decade ago that a family sedan could give zillion-dollar hypercars a run for their money.

So, why even bother to put it up against an old-school, 1970s Volkswagen Beetle? Well, because this Beetle has been electrified and makes 450 horses! The Porsche makes more horsepower, but can the instant torque of the Beetle prove to be too much for the sports car?
