As I’ve been writing for weeks. Price creep= protected profit margins. Porsche saw the robust pre orders and decided the demand warranted going back on their word re pricing
Yes I agree on this one and will also go to FAA to make up my mind, for or against a final purchse...….
Close enough? Not even close.
I don’t need a 4 door sedan. I wanted a sexy Porsche electric car.
I wonder how many other deposits feel the same way.
This is what I'm waiting for.
^ Are they not going to cover the sensors/cameras/radar?
At first I thought, "Of course, that is still a mule.....of course the sensors will be covered and the lights are still under camouflage as well."
Then I looked carefully at all spy photos and those photos actually released by Porsche, and they all have that part in the center of the lower bumper cover. I dont think those are sensors, as sensors and cameras tend to be about 1 cm in diameter. Not sure what those things are in the lower part of the bumper. fog lights? Would there be need for two Lidar devices in the front center of the vehicle?
It's a bit worrying that this part is also visible on the upcoming Audi e-tron GT (same platform). So I guess they won't cover up these cameras/Lidar/fog lights/whatever.
Do you actually feel that way after seeing how close the latest mules look compared to the prototype? I think you might be better off buying something from Tesla...
Ron.........judging from posts over the last year and a half (as the mule became better known as Taycan) there actually are a fair number of depositors who feel the same as GT3GT4 man.
I'm sure there are some. But unless someone needs the money for something else (another car), I would figure people would just wait until September after seeing the production car and then decide.
I can’t figure out how a US plate fits on that front bumper and doesn’t occlude the sensor package below. And those appear to be active sensors - check out the adaptive cruise and InnoDrive sensors on a Panamera and you’ll see similar sized cameras and adaptive radar.
Easy! You put your plate into a tow hook adapter and not have holes drilled into your car.
That’s what’s dealers do btw. They drill holes. Into your car. Yuck.
Not all cars mind you, but a surprisingly large amount of car models have no licence plate “spot”
As region to region requires a front plate or not.
Just ask your dealer to not drill any holes for the plate and you’ll be fine. I’ve done it in the past.
I don't understand why so many people are so hooked on the looks only. While I love the Mission-E look, this present look is not bad either.
I was under the understanding that what would really make this car different is the how it would be able to hold high speeds for a long time, basically at any speed it should run longer than any Tesla at the same speed. Does that not matter any more?

Porschephiles and/or people who are drawn to Porsche are concerned with looks?......nahhh.
Course I'm joking.....but another ingredient here is simply that for many, we've been drawn to the beauty of the Mission E body. That draw has been reinforced continually since 2015.
Not all of us of course.........yep engineering of the car is important, but to the aforementioned 'Porschephiles and/or people who are drawn to Porsche'......it was assumed, if not taken for granted.
