      Watching tech channels talk about cars is just like listening to gearheads reviewing the latest smartphone - it just doesnt work right.

        This dude must not know his porsche history, not their first electric car. Go back about a century and you'll find their first one bro.

            Porsche should definitely not make cheap electric cars

              Jeremy Clarkson agreed, how else will we know who has an inferiority complex they’re trying to compensate for?

            Couldn't take a monopod with you? The shutter speed makes the DRL blink too. Too distracting.

                    how can I believe what Porsche (VW) says about the specs.. (i.e. range 450km, acceleration etc) if they lied to all of us about something so critical as how much their vehicles pollute tampering test results?

                              @mfxx888 lol elaborate how the UI is the worst? I own a tesla and Ive been in cars like the porsche, jag and bmw... Dont get me started

                              @Jim Bom well the idea is, very soon you wont need to return your sight to the road ahead since it will drive itself. but in the meantime glass cockpits do have their pitfalls

                              Jim Bom don’t get me started on that one, Tesla’s interface design is the worst, learn from the Germans, Tesla is 10 years behind.

                              you know.. I think the same. and I am sure it takes a few seconds less to see a knob ... put your hand on it and go back to watch the road again. while with a touchscreen you spend at least 3 more seconds. but I guess it is cheaper and cooler..

                            0:37 is why you dont host events like this at natural wonders of the world, the photographer is taking pictures of the waterfall in the background and not the car on premiere

                              he is probably shooting pictures of the event including car and the falls... or do you think every peasant can just walk by the car and the event?

                              Dear Porsche, turbo? You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

                                All Porsches have turbochargers meanwhile, so already without the Taycan it more or less has lost its original meaning.

                                  Less performance than a Model S, new to electric (because they were forced to) and almost twice the price. Model S is better, faster and cheaper. Never been a fan of Porsche and this does nothing for me.

                                    William Sheehan they aren't made for the same market, the taycan was designed for driving experience performance such as tracking or twisty roads not straight lines, the Porsche would destroy the Tesla on any track.

                                    @fouad omrane On the other hand, the Tesla wins in speed, acceleration, range, charge time, and price. Just saying it seems like a very relevant comparison.

                                    Sam Friedman because they aren't for the same market of people, the taycan for example would destroy the Tesla in handling driving experience and tracking

                                        TOTALLY WORTH IT.

                                            Porsche's first car was electric so this is technically the second electric car from Porsche

                                              @yungdadi Actually in this case it it not the same company. The Porsche was founded in 1931, so a car that is 30 years older cannot be made by that company :-) It was construced by Ferdiand Porsche when he worked for Lohner. But we don't have do argue here, I don't want to be that nitpicky :.)

                                              Well, you compare the first car that was developed by Ferdinand Porsche (but for Lohner; the company Porsche didn't exist), and the first electric car by the company Porsche (without Ferdinand, who is dead since 60 years)

                                            So it’s like a Tesla but it has a worse range, it’s slower and it’s more expensive.

                                                  You compared the taycan's performance with the model s, but its also worthwhile mentioning that although on paper the tesla is quicker in a straight line, the taycan has much better battery management allowing for a much more consistent performance. Teslas usually throttle themselves after a few launches because of the stress it puts on the batteries, but porsche promises that isn't the case with the taycan.
                                                  It also charges faster, reaching 270kw of charging power at peak.
