Germany's answer to Tesla Model S is finally here and will have its world premiere in 6 hours from now.

Watch it live here:

https://www.motor1.com/news/368733/2020-porsche-taycan-livestream

Link also includes known stats and pics which have been revealed by Porsche.

Quote :
"Much of the futuristic interior has already been revealed, complete with a plethora of touchscreens both at the front and rear. There’s the massive 16.8-inch curved display serving as the instrument cluster and accompanied by a 10.9-inch touchscreen and a smaller 8.4-inch touch panel mounted lower on the center console. Even the front passenger can have a touchscreen, while the optional four-zone automatic climate control comes bundled with a 5.9-inch touch panel for those sitting in the back.

As you are probably well aware by now, the EV from Stuttgart will initially be offered in the high-end trim levels with dual electric motors, all-wheel drive, and all-wheel steering. It will have well over 600 horsepower in normal use, with an overboost function increasing output to more than 700 hp and 750 pound-feet (1,017 Newton-meters) of torque for 2.5 seconds. The electric punch will give it some supercar levels of acceleration despite the fact it’s not exactly going to be a light car."

God I hate touch screens.

Looking forward to official introduction of this car more than any other EV in memory, however I'd still rather have a Panamera, which it should be noted, Porsche is still marketing (and pricing) above the Taycan.

I don't know who would buy this. Costs more than a comparable model S, has 1/100 of the charging network, has no autonomous modes. The one thing going for it is a nicer interior, but I can't see that justifying the price.

All the specs, plus galleries:

https://www.motor1.com/news/368730/2020-porsche-taycan-debut-official

Quite pricey; in fact, barring RR and Bentley, one of the priciest sedans on the market.

Taycan Turbo
616 hp, 671 hp with overboost
627 lb-ft
0-60 mph in 3.0 sec
1/4 mile in 11.1 sec
$153,xxx

Taycan Turbo S
616 hp, 751 hp with overboost
774 lb-ft
0-60 mph in 2.6 sec
1/4 mile in 10.8 sec
$187,xxx

Range on EPA cycle will be in the 200-250 mile range. Charge from 5% to 80% in 23 minutes using 800 V.

Taycan expected to cost around $90,000 and Taycan S around $110,000. Expected reveal at LA Auto Show in November.

^ Cheaper lower powered base models, as in non-'Turbo' and non-S. Read my post.

Got Elon to tweet twice!

Mocked the use of Turbo, plus challenged the Taycan's Nurburgring record for a sedan by promising a Tesla on the circuit next week.

Any Porsche Turbo is cool, it's even cooler with Internet of Things.

Worth a read.

Goes into great detail about the engineering, including how it can do acceleration runs ad nauseum unlike the Tesla.

IOT is just a buzz word. It's a tech trending now.

"The tesla didnt do a full lap actually it did a bridge to gantry lap"

seen a few times in the comments. Don't know whether true or not, but I don't see anything about it after a minute of Googling.

Also
Quote :
"Porsche now says that the record-setting Taycan was actually a Turbo model and the not the Turbo S model that a Porsche spokesperson said it was. So is it possible that Porsche might have an even faster time in its pocket."

^

1) The Turbo S and Turbo have the same power, just a different level when boost is activated, which lasts only 2.5 seconds.

2) Elon is saying the production version will have even more extreme performance than the prototype.

3) ~20 sec is a long time, and in light of the two points above, I don't think it can be bridged.

(this is of course with the assumption that Tesla did the full lap and not the shorter bridge to gantry lap; where did you get your first quote from?)
