That’s what I thought initially but it’s because the venue lights are so bright! Here is a photo I took when the lights were low for the presentation

I swear Porsche isn't very good at taking pictures of their own cars. Even their configurators kinda make some of the cars look odd.

These journalist/amateur photos of Taycan at Frankfurt and on the street provide a much better perspective. The Taycan is simply gorgeous. Really looks more 911 than Panamera in my opinion. Can't wait!

Interesting thinks for me:
-Mission E Wheel Looks better complete black than in white.
-glass roof has no sun blind
-gold interior looks better than dark silver
-Rear footages are very small (you can not put the foot under the front seat)
-only the glass roof has a receptacle for a roof box
-the glass roof brings about 5cm more seat height

VERY helpful observations on the glass roof.....makes it a no brainer to get!! 5 more centimeters is significant!

already, but I find that it has no rollo is a bigger disadvantage. I'm 1.86 and had enough space up, even with the normal roof.

For many vehicles so far, I usually have the roof closed, as no heat radiation / cold on the head is noticeable. When I open the rollo, it is uncomfortably cool in the winter on my head. just as inverse when the sun shines out on the outside, then the roof of my S coupe radiates warmly inwards.
