Here is a new review with lots more information, it seems, this guys is the second person outside of Porsche to drive this car:


https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-review/porsche/taycan/first-drives/porsche-taycan-2020-review


In short summary, it seems it is true, there will be a Turbo and Turbo S with 600+ BHP and 700+ BHP respectively. They will be the first 2 models to be released. There is an over-boost function. 0-62 in the Turbo S is 2.8 secs, which makes 0-60 around the 2.5 or 2.6 secs. Turbo S comes standard with 4 wheel steering and ceramic brakes. According to this guy it drives very well and apparently it is the best EV on market so far "by a mile".

Enjoy!

I saw that. I also saw that the color outside is black while on the doors from the sides when open, it is purple!

It’s beautiful and in all likelihood an awesome Porsche. His quoted price is 165,865 USD. I wonder if that includes the extended info screen? Certainly won’t include special colors I.e. Chalk, Voodoo Blue, etc.

Yeah, it seems with all the options that you typically would want, it will be closer to $200K.

We can see the trunk button more clearly, as noted in Jonny Smith's video.

I also like how the charge port opens/closes.
