    Too expensive, too slow, not enough range, inefficient , too big, apart from that I like it.

    Good first try. Now take it back and make a car which lives up to the Porsche name. Mrs Blogs leaving the kids to school in her tesla will take it out. A bit embarrassing really for Porsche.

    It’s confusing to call it turbo honestly, I know that turbo sometimes stands for "fast" in other categories but calling a sports car turbo that has no turbo is strange and misleading, the car is amazing though but maybe Porsche should think of a better name. If turbo is going to die in the future come up with something else. Imagine an Audi with the quattro badge not being quattro.

    I feel that due to pressure of the future clearly becoming an electric powered one, its forcing manufacturers to conform to a soon to be mandatory, therefore making them try too hard to build a futuristic looking car

    Is this really a Porsche? Here's a company known for its distinctive exhaust note, making a car that's totally silent and probably priced more than an American, yes American, all-electric car, Tesla. Just because the Porsche stuck a badge on the hood and trunk doesn't mean I would pay more money for it instead. Also, this car should have round headlights.

    I saw it today. It looks good yes. I hadn’t seen the price before seeing the car so my guess was around 95K USD. It’s way more than that. Should have looked better.

    5:16 One thing I have to ponder is why it has such high-performance heavy-duty brakes like most other performance cars, when the regenerative system does most of the work? Given such, couldn't it get by with more minimal, cheaper, lighter-weight brakes? I ponder this about Teslas as well, though I don't know their exact specs the brakes on those look pretty substantial as well even though they're rarely used.

    I know Ferrari it's not happy about this !!! 812 Superfast performance with 4 seats. No frequent trips to the Gas Station, no oil changes, no engine tuning, ridiculous maintenance costs, etc. All for a fraction of the price. Porsche Engineering thrown in as a bonus. And a luxury interior. ( Folks with money have stayed away from Tesla models precisely because of the cheap interior ). I keep buying those lottery tickets. Who knows !!

    Governments are pushing people to abandon traditional cars, and producers are building 120+ K Euro electric cars for start ??? For which percentage of the population? This 1%? Or for average Joe fighting to survive a month ? The remaining 99%! So stupid. Build electric car that will cost 15 K Euro and will have a half the range of a small diesel car. Then I'll salute you.
