The Taycan is slated for its premiere at Frankfurt in September. Anyone else with a pre-order making the trip to Germany to see the launch?

Here’s an interesting interview with the Head of Style at Porsche on its design.

https://newsroom.porsche.com/en/2019/company/porsche-taycan-exterior-sketches-michael-mauer-interview-17991.html

And the prototype’s latest outing in China:

2011 Porsche 997 Turbo S

Undoubtedly will be a great success , but totally underwhelmed as expected at the sound , or lack of, I just cannot imagine the hairs on the back of my neck standing up at the ' whooooosh'''' as it goes by …

Compare it to the sound of the newly unveiled RSR ( now that is spine tingling) and it explains why most of us 'chaps of a certain age' just don't subscribe to the EV...…..

I was hoping for something with sci-fi styling after all the mission E marketing and static prototype last year at goodwood/museum. Disappointing styling that reminds me of this...

Disappointing styling ..........


But for many it's the holy grail, the long awaited '4 door 911'.

If the petrol engined version, first touted in 2008, had been around for a few years I'd be in one by now.

I doubt that I'll still be driving when e-cars are commonplace but if I am I'll be the old guy in a Taycan. Smile

This is what a 2 door Panamera would look like, not my cup of tea in the looks department.

As a daily to replace the Macan, it'll do! Wink

I'm looking forward to see how it stacks up against the Tesla Model S and what the driving dynamics are like. If Porsche are true to form, it'll be fun to drive.

Got me there, should look more closely.

Still not keen on the looks of the production version, the concept looked very good but lost a lot in translation in the window line towards the rear of the car.
