I asked this in the renders thread but thought I'd ask in separate thread - so will there be a Taycan, Taycan S and Taycan GTS like the rest of the Porsche models? I know not to expect a Turbo or a GT model :)

I think there has to be variants in the line up so that they can compete with the entry/mid level EV, but then give us a top end performer like the GTS.. I think other models will come to go up against the likes of Tesla Roadster

You think they'll bring a whole new model to take on the Tesla Roadster or compete with it using an EV Boxster?

Yes I'd bet the farm we'll see S and GTS versions. There's too much $ left on the table not introducing those badges. Besides the usual performance upgrades they'll feature larger capacity batteries and better range.

Hmmm, I'm not sure. I think if the four door does well, they would come up with a fresh design 'blank slate' to take advantage of the platform and stand apart from the ICE cars. You could say the Taycan looks very similar in the middle to a Panamera (based on those renderings), with a different front end being most obvious. However since there is no mid engine, you could design a two door four seater (with room) and make it gorgeous.
