Once the wife grows sick of her macan this will replace it. If we were ordering in 12 months it would have been a Taycan and not a Macan S.

Its sister car the Audi GT will also be on the radar.

I'm sure it's going to be a nice car and sell well but to me it looks like a 4 door Subaru BRZ from the side (yes I know it's still got some camouflage on it).

I hate that the Taycan doesn't have the wide rear hips and suicide doors of the Mission E.  Otherwise . . . 👍

Looks wise, it's closer to the Panamera than the Mission E. To say I'm disappointed is would be an understatement.

"With no engine up front (or at the back) Taycan drivers won't have to deal with the noise or vibration that an internal combustion engine inherently produces."
But what about tyre roar? No doubt the jornalists will be taken to a smooth track for promo purposes.
And then , if it is indeed quiet as ...

MEH!
That's not fun is it?

"Porsche is big on authenticity and it sounds like an electric car because that’s what it is. The strategy will be to engineer out as much of the whines and whirrs of these very early prototypes so that there is minimal noise. It’s ‘the luxury of silence’ as one Porsche person put it to me. I expect we’ll hear rather a lot of that particular sound bite in the near future. Oddly enough, there will be an additional and optional ‘sound pack’ customers can choose."

Sound pack = piped flat 6 or Michael Angelo Batio?

Old man's car I reckon :lol:
