    I agree with Gregg T. Porsche marketing keeps showing the "E" aggressive body. Maybe it will look more like the "E" with the wide front and rear fenders over the wheels.The Porsche design team did a great job with the "E" and it shows with over 20,000 deposits, including mine. My local Porsche dealer said that they like to hide things until the end. I sure hope so! I am looking forward to seeing and driving it.

    One thing I really don't quite understand is why Porsche shows the Taycan with only such minor camo...
    Maybe it's wishfull thinking but c'mon, we already know how it'll look like due to some Photoshop and some imagination...
    If it'll look like the mules, the "world premiere" at the FAA 2019 isn't quite a surprise, right?
    Hmmm....:idea:

    Considering Porsche just has its offices raided last week by the German authorities for lying to them... what is lying to it’s customers? Lol

    Sorry but I think a car is more than just 0-60 numbers...

    Just saw spy film of the 992 Turbo S........ it has an even wider body than the “regular” wide body of the S/4S 992..... interesting.... could they be doing the same to the Turbo S Taycan...... in that case I will wait!!

    Hmm, good point but I doubt it.
    With the Panamera is doesn't look different as far as I can see...(Turbo vs Turbo S E-Hybrid).

    Now that we're talking about different models, I saw the price of the PCCB for the new Cayenne Coupé was €3K less than the Panamera which is €9,5K.
    So €6,5K... big difference, right?
    Anyone noticed?
    Why is that?

    and since they are saying that the Taycan is really closer to the 911 in idea but with 4 seats then maybe they will go even wider unlike the Panamera..... i guess just my unrealistic hope..... :)

    No, I mean the PCCB option (Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes).
    Panamera: €9,5K (same for 911).
    Cayenne Coupé: €6,5K...

    I agree completely re:elitist attitude. I’ve worked very hard and have owned many Porsches including two Caymans which were both incredible sports cars even though they were entry level. That guy needs to get over himself

    Looks like an electric Panamera. Really too bad if it looks like the above. A lot of people put deposits down because of the look of the "E" The marketing material being sent by Porsche last week still pushes the look of the "E"
