    Anyone considering other EV's?

    Because you want to draw even more attention, when a young rich looking guy crawls out of a - :idea: - 1950 Italian looking cheap old people car? :giggle:

    Had an interesting chat with some dudes from Lucid test team

    I admire your faith in institutions, despite Boeing MAX. However, a standardized test is useless, if you let the manufacturer perform it. And there is certainly nothing verified! Weren't there even tweets, where our vaporware master showed off, how he reports what he likes to the EPA?

    Front surface area is easy, just check the dimensions of the car in the spec sheet and do a little math. That's good enough for a real world range estimate...

    Had an interesting chat with some dudes from Lucid test team

    Well, what is there to license? We know that the weight of an EV is not determined by the engine. The efficiency of an electric motor is anywhere between 93% and 97% (over 99% in very large motors). There are plenty of suppliers (Mahle, ZF, Continental, etc) producing motors for EVs without...

    That would be 13 kWh/100km? In what situation? When I do my chilled driving, I almost get the same.

    Had an interesting chat with some dudes from Lucid test team

    All these EVs are so efficient. On the other side, we know EPA numbers are garbage. They do not follow a standardized and verified test protocol. Therefore, the range numbers above are meaningless. I need to know battery net capacity drag co-efficient weight tire size Then practical range is...

    Two Speed EV transmission a good idea?

    You might be right, but it's hard to know exactly form the outside, how Porsche designed and optimized the whole drive train. This would be an interesting question to a Porsche engineer. :cool:

    OMG Elon really does lie

    Well, it's smart. Cosy up to the T fanboys for show, but when he is back in the office, he looks at the numbers and worries about chip shortage and about how to compete in the Chinese market - his money printing press.

    Two Speed EV transmission a good idea?

    In theory you have drag losses, because the moving magnet produces a current inside the motor which shows up as a voltage on the outside. If the wire is cut, the current stops, but voltage persists. Practically, the motor is always connected so you have to handle the power in your power...

    Porsche is top World Luxury Brand by wide margin (by valuation)

    Interesting - and exactly where Porsche wants to be: Buy the Gucci, wear the Prada, drive the Porsche! :cool:

    Porsche Announces Mission R EV Sports Car Concept

    I kind of totally ignored this thread, not interested in racing. But when you look at it like this with the EV headlights design and reading, that Porsche is practicing for the electric version of the 911... :idea: Well that could be exciting indeed!

    Two Speed EV transmission a good idea?

    Depends on the type of motor. The PSM (in Taycan) is most efficient particularly in low speeds, but creates a current running idle. Since you have a gear translation by adding a clutch you might as well add one more translation. Source: Mahle - reaches up to 96% efficiency. Formula-E teams...

    Two Speed EV transmission a good idea?

    Wasn't the major advantage of having even a simple 2 speed gear box, that you can disengage the rear PM motor and only use the front motor for range?

    Two Speed EV transmission a good idea?

    The way I drive, my Taycan already forgot it has a gear box! :cool:

    Porsche, please… my Taycan is not white!!!

    Considering this and that Taycan is a whole new platform, I think the software including the app is pretty good...

    Porsche, please… my Taycan is not white!!!

    True, but white car on a black background makes it easy to see/use?

    (UPDATE!) AC not blowing cold air!

    I had the problem once. The PC couldn't find anything. Hasn't happened since. Maybe a software glitch in my case...

    Can't find the thread with the vid of Edmunds testing the Tesla Plaid...

    Why are people so fascinated by acceleration? In over a year, I never floored my Taycan in regular traffic. Maybe I am getting old, but it has no real life application in a car, doesn't it? 🤷‍♂️

    Don't worry most of this dumb fanboys look very stupid, when EVs like this come to the streets:
