Which one?

Though I don't think it'll be long before the Taycan has a rear spoiler like the 911's
Spoilers like the one on GT3 RS has no business on a sports saloon like the Taycan, it would look absolutely ridiculous.
Fixed spoilers like that belongs to track cars, and track cars only. On the road a GT3 Touring looks sooo much better:)

Fully agree... for a road car mild spoilers at high speeds make sense, which is exactly what the Taycan has. Big spoilers are for race cars.

Also check out this image. You can see the rear of a BMW 3 series - maybe M3 - there.

That's what is regarded as a sports sedan. But it looks very tall and slab sided compared to the 911-style flared wheel arches of the Taycan

Comparison shots of the Taycan with a Dodge charger - a sports sedan which looks like an MPV in comparison with the Taycan - and the Nissan GTR

For sure!

This is the only four door saloon in the world that looks like a sports car - it's fun showing it alongside other saloons and realising just how slab sided most saloons - and even some 2 door coupes - are

I know, too bad the configurator didn't do it justice, wish I could see a red one
in the wild, and the back tires.. omg didn't know they would be that wide, love it! , and the width, makes it really look like a super car

Hmm a lot of people seem to think it looks like a super car, not just me...

In all seriousness, this has done wonders for the image and credibility of the electric car. Tesla launched the Model S - I remember back then it was seen as a sleek and coupe like design. But cars like the Prius (hybrid) and the Leaf (full EV) just couldn't touch the desirability of - just about anything, really. The Model S has a good image, true, but more in a sleek, Mercedes E-Class/BMW 5 series/smooth executive kind of way.

Not this kind of supercar/drop dead gorgeous/jaw hits the floor and you can't stop looking at it kind of way. The Taycan's doing wonders for the electric car image.

i couldn't agree more, I can see people saying it expensive. Hey it's a Porsche we all know that, but you have to see the beauty of this thing, really good photography, are you a professional?

If only.

No, I found all my images on instagram.

I usually look for sportiest stance images of Taycan - Turbo S with Mission E wheels
