    Turbo S vs Turbo - 80-120kph times

    That's the classic discussion about hp vs torque. The Turbo S can maintain max torque for a longer period of time while at same hp as the Turbo cuz of the bigger inverter. Something like that? PS LC is activated for 2.5 sec per launch.

    Turbo S vs Turbo - 80-120kph times

    The front motor of the Turbo S has a bigger inverter so it's no surprise it's (a little) faster.

    Taycan information direct from Zuffenhausen plant tour

    Yeah, I know but it's the "green picture" that counts. Still, on a good day, with 20 panels (250Wp) in the sun for 6 hours gives you 20*250*6=30kWh...

    Taking One Lap of the Country in my Taycan Turbo - 10k miles in 6 weeks Cross-Country Journal

    Maybe you (or someone else with knowledge) can make a new (sticky) topic at the Charging& Batteries section here on Taycan forum. I think a lot of (former) Tesla owners are VERY interested in this!

    Even our fast-charge stations have a roof for exactly the reason you mentioned... In fact, they have solar panels on them. Win/win!

    Exactly. He acts like plugging in a socket is such a hassle....it isn't.

    I think you mix up current and magnetism. Induction charging is transfering current by magnetism, there's no current going through the air, it's the magnetism, that's the whole idea behind induction charging. From that magnetism the car makes current again to charge the battery.

    Magnetism doesn't need a conductor. That's the whole principle of induction.

    Taycan has custom Bose sound system

    The first travel of the pedal is just regenerative braking, the actual mechanical braking comes after that. You can get 250+kW of regenerative braking in a Taycan... Maybe that's what you feld...

    It shouldn't be a surprise that induction charging will be, or already is highly efficient. It's nothing more than a transformer without a (iron) core. Transformers are >95% efficient.

    Taking One Lap of the Country in my Taycan Turbo - 10k miles in 6 weeks Cross-Country Journal

    Nice to see the kind of people who buy Taycans! I, myself, never owned a Porsche before so I didn't have any idea what a Porsche owner would look like, lol! Just kidding, it's nice to see these are "normal" people and share their passion in cars, same for me. I'm home. :CWL:

    Taycan Turbo S DragTimes 1/4mi runs

    Taycan does 0-130 mph about 1,4 s faster than a 2020 Model S Performance (Raven). And what is the speed on the 1/4 mile? Exactly, 130mph... It's pretty obvious the Taycan will crush the Model S.

    Engine/drive-unit defenately not the same. That's bs. Sorry. Thanks for sharing this update though! PS That factory which burned down was also involved in the placement of the 350kW chargers (heard from a ABB representative).

    [Car and Driver Review] Porsche Taycan Turbo S vs. Tesla Model S Performance: Electric Flattery

    Ah! Now I see what you mean. Indeed, my bad. It has nothing to do with the energy available but consumption. Sorry, lol! Still, it shows the Model S uses a lot more energy than EPA states. The difference with the Taycan is not that much.

    [Car and Driver Review] Porsche Taycan Turbo S vs. Tesla Model S Performance: Electric Flattery

    I was talking about the initial EPA rating of the Model S. They have three different ways to get numbers. 1. From manufacturer. 2. Extended test cycle (incl. high speed and ambient temperature) 3. Short test cycle (*0,7 factor for high speed/temp). Tesla Model S was #1. Taycan #3. That's why...

    [Car and Driver Review] Porsche Taycan Turbo S vs. Tesla Model S Performance: Electric Flattery

    I think Tesla just send the numbers. EPA didn't even test the Model S at the time. As you can see the difference is not that big, unlike the numbers on paper...

    [Car and Driver Review] Porsche Taycan Turbo S vs. Tesla Model S Performance: Electric Flattery

    Maybe I'm mistaken (correct me if I'm wrong) but there are a few things to consider. Range. The difference is only 10 mls. But..... The Tesla uses 95 kWh where Taycan uses only 83kWh from it's battery, right? That makes the Taycan performs even better, right? But why and how? Cuz of the...
