    When this super duper expialadocious Turbo-rino Porsche super car of the future can match the mileage of a 2010 Tesla model S and they install 1500 charging stations I might become interested if they lowered the price by $70,000.00.

    2:20-3:08, this is the reason most car elitist have lost large amounts of respect for TopGear. This guy just said smaller wiring cause less heat, the car weights more than the American car maker you spoke of they have to have smaller wires. Lelf your balls in the tiny back seat of the taycan i see

    Sadly Crash tests don't show, Burning Smoking Battery Platforms. Or how we wait forever for a Charge. Do not buy a E. V car until you can drive up, have battery pulled and install full charged replacement pay 40 bucks and go on your merry way.

    Great car, but when the hell will they going to produce cars for the masses - Tesla clearly has the pulse of the future and will move ahead way faster than this car in terms of scalability! Electric cars should be developed for the benefit of the masses which will truly reduce all the silly fossil burning.......

    OK. I get it. You want a EV track car - you get the Porsche Taycan. But with 201 mi range ..... how do you drive out of town to the track then back home again? Will Porsche/VW be installing level 3 chargers at every track in the country? And when? As for fast charging; Taycan's 800V advantage for fast charging to 80% is now meaningless. 80% of 201 is only 160miles. The more practical metric is not how fast to 80% but how many miles/min or other unit of time. A slower 150kW charger on an more efficient Tesla drivetrain will in fact give you more miles/time than a Taycan on VW's 270kV. (if u can find one).

    UPDATE: Porsche is very upset! The US EPA just gave the Taycan a maximum range of 201 miles. Next to a Tesla's incredible range, Porsche’s Taycan’s EPA range makes It the least Efficient EV on the market!

    Was ich nie verstehen werde - ich kaufe ein Auto weit 100.000 Euro und das Kabel liegt wie bei jedem Billighersteller im Dreck und wird klatschnass oder voller Schnee oder Hundesch...e in den Kofferraum geworfen. Warum hat es die Industrie nach über 10 Jahren immer noch nicht geschafft, an den Schnellladestationen 5m lange, ausziehbare Kabel wie an jeder Tankstellenzapfsäule anzubieten? Ich parke doch auch nicht auf dem Rastplatz, um dann mit meinem eigenen, stinkenden 20 Liter Kanister Diesel zu meinem Auto zu schleppen. Aber für diesen Gedanken sind unsere Hightech-Ingenieure aller eAuto-Produzenten vermutlich schlichtweg überqualifiziert.

    The reason this is better than Tesla is, one it's beautiful, two it's not a throwaway car like the tesla. Oh, it has real driving dynamics. Did I mention its actually beautiful, also built by a skilled manufacturer.

    Some days Germany constructor from Porsche company visited the Kyrgyz Republic he was astonished by kyrgyz hunting dog especially by the name and translation of this name (as "catch up and kill" the taigun/taican/taykan translated from kyrgyz). And when Porsche Co was choosing the name to "kill" Tesla S electrocar for their new electrocar, they have chosen Taycan, Porsche Taycan. Porsche put a bit different letters in order do not break the authors right (taigun, taican, taykan), since the World got the car named Porsche Taycan ("catch up and kill" from kyrgyz). In Soviet time the germanium people lived in Kyrgyz Republic approximately 200 000 human, and nowadays approximately 20 000 human lives still.

      @weizenobst müsli still alot of money tbf. And you're still sacraficing a lot of range for some extra peformance which isnt really that relevant in everyday driving. Tbf i wouldnt really buy either of these cars. Would rather go for a model 3 performance(without auto pilot) as its cheaper with comperable range and performance.
