UPDATE: Porsche Taycan Impresses Us With 2,129 Mile, 24-Hour Endurance Test
https://insideevs.com/news/365827/porsc ... endurance/

Average speed including multiple fast charging stops 89 mph; while driving, 121-134 mph. with peak temps of 42 deg. C (track temps up to 54 deg. C). I'd say their TMS will probably handle more typical driving with no problem.

Porsche is diving head first into electrification. The Cayenne lineup will host three new electrified models early next year. And anticipation is building for the fully-electric Taycan. Porsche decided to increase production of the Taycan to double its initial figure. Clearly, change is coming to the German brand.
Albrecht Reimold: The Taycan opens a new chapter in our history. Porsche has deliberately decided to produce this iconic new car at its main site in Zuffenhausen, the heart and home of the brand. The Taycan is something very special. Its performance, range, and innovative 800-volt technology for the shortest possible charging times are one of a kind. It’s a pure-blooded sports car, yet also suitable for everyday driving—in other words, it’s a typical Porsche. More than twenty thousand people from around the world have already contacted Porsche with serious interest in buying the car—without even having seen it. That’s just overwhelming. What’s happening is light years beyond what we could have expected.

Lots of hype in that statement they could not live up to. At least they are finally building an EV.

The Porsche price looks silly compared to the Tesla Model 3 Performance.

What I've learned about Porsche's is that you have to just want to burn money to buy a new one. The depreciation on them rivals a Leaf.

A used one that has been maintained well can be a bargain though. They are the pinnacle of German-engineered cars and they are nice cars. Just hope you don't need to buy parts for them! That gets expensive quickly even if you do the work yourself.

Looks awesome! I'm excited to see what the actual specs and pricing are. You know it will have amazing handling and a nice interior coming from Porsche... my buddy has a 2014 911 turbo and it is just ridiculous. There may be a few cars that'll beat it 0-60 but the overall experience of driving that car is unbelievable. If I was richer, unmarried, and childless this thing would be on my short list. :D

Yeah, to stereotype the potential buyers, Model S's are for the tech geeks and cool kids, and the Taycan will attract the people who have well-worn leather driving gloves and fantasize about (or actually have) driving the 'Ring, or powering out of Tertre Rouge and (quietly in this case) screaming down Mulsanne! :lol: I'm not super thrilled with all the touch screens especially for HVAC, but for now I trust that Porsche will still emphasize driver controls that are easy to use at speed without taking your eyes off the road, over gee-whiz.

But can you imagine what it will be like when Porsche decides that batteries have advanced far enough to make a BEV 911? :o :shock:
