I was reading the Media Kit Ford sent out for the Mustang Mach-E and one thing that really stood out for me was that they specifically compared it to the Porsche Macan.

When it arrives in late 2020, Mustang Mach-E will be available with standard and extended-range battery options with either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive powered by permanent magnet motors. Equipped with an extended-range battery and rear-wheel drive, Mach-E has a targeted EPA-estimated range of at least 300 miles.1 In extended-range all-wheel-drive configurations, Mach-E is targeting 332 horsepower and 417 lb.-ft. of torque2 – with the standard all-wheel-drive variation targeting quicker times to 60 mph than the base Porsche Macan series.3

Ford also will offer two special performance versions. The GT is targeting 0-60 mph in under 4 seconds2, making it faster off the line than a Porsche Macan Turbo3. The GT Performance Edition, meanwhile, is targeting a comparable 0-60 mph in the mid-3-second range to a Porsche 911 GTS.3 Both GT configurations are targeting an estimated 342 kW (459 horsepower) and 830 Nm (612 lb.-ft.) of torque.2
I might be getting way ahead of myself here, but if Ford is actually trying to go after Porsche for performance, wouldn't it be fun to see the Mach-E go up against the Porsche Taycan?

The Taycan 4S is going to have a 0-60 time of 3.8 seconds which is in the same ballpark as the Mach-E GT (3.5 seconds). I'd love to see a race like that happen.

I can't think anyone would reasonably cross-shop these two. But... maybe.
Impressive that the Mach E GT is so much faster!
