This is the perfect car. Also, the first time I have seen the rear wing extended.

I think this pic is the best so far (January 2019) or maybe that's cuz of the 935 wheels...
It also has the wing extended and it shows the low profile and sleek lines.

This line worries me aesthetically as it was much crisper and 911-like on the Mission-e. Now it has become the line that is most Panamera like and I do understand that they need headroom in the back seat but, they did go to great length and gouge out big holes in the battery skateboard to lower the backseats significantly to the detriment of range. With that I would have hoped they could have kept the crisper Mission-e line...... so I guess black will not be my color of choice at least not with tinted windows since the uniformity of it accentuates this unfortunate ergonomic line.......

Schematic renderings of the battery pack showed a big cutout or gap in the rear seat where the feet are. That surprised me bc of the potential battery performance impact. Perhaps they’ve changed their mind though that would seem late in the game.

yes these are the holes I mean. they allow Porsche to put the actual seat flat on the battery and lower the feet into these two wells that could have been range......... and should have given us a lower roof line in the back. what i understand they have not gotten rid of them but if they have they gave priority to range over styling........... which is both good and bad i guess. :)

it’s also sitting on air suspension which is great for comfort but not maybe the best for a sporty ride...... and heavy......... so that’s defenetlry more Panamera than 911......... you can see the difference in the height above the tires on the highway and in the garage.....

The Taycan will for sure weight in around 2.5 tons so air suspension it must have..
I think it will be nerly 5 meters long and 2 meters wide, the height will be as many has written before 1.38m

No such thing as a perfect car. Definitely has amazing potential. But they have to get rid of those stupid "tail pipe" covers!!

Wow this looks like a different prototype and it has the hump.
Hump?
Some of these pics are over a year old.....all seem to be the the same mules that were produced late 2017, and that body is the Taycan body. Unfortunately.
