    They also suspect it'll weigh over 2300kg.
    Oopsy...

    Yikes. At that weight with 500 or so hp in the “non turbo” version my calculations show a middling 0-60 time of 4.5 sec

    It will weigh more than the larger Model S and the Panamera Hybrid? No.

    Also there's not a chance in hell the "S" version isn't 4.2 or below to 0-60. Period.

    The Taycan won't weigh what you claim and the much bulkier, heavier iPace hits 0-60 in 4.2 seconds.

    Not sure where you're getting your numbers but the Taycan S won't be heavier and slower than an iPace.

    My guess is the 3.5 number is for the "S" version and the "Turbo" will be sub 3. I would frankly be absolutely flabbergasted if this doesn't end up being true.

    This is currently the weirdest forum I belong to, so trying to make sense of most of these dudes is painstaking.

    Why don't you just leave then?
    If it's us then probably you don't fit in.
    This is not the first time I see you post personal stuff instead of subjective matters.
    Or any valuable posts in general now that you've mentioned it.:clap:

    Nobody is forcing you. Just expressing honest opinions. What is your particular problem?

    I'm here because it's a decent place to get information in one place (not to mention a few people who have more than "my basement studies have lead me to these astounding predictions!" with relevant inside info to provide).

    But, the lion's share just seems incredibly...strange. Just stating an opinion...based on my...calculations!

    Edit* I digress, though. You guys are fun ;)

    Is it just me or do the mules seem to be jacked up? They look very high riding - i.e. there seems to be a larger than usual gap between the wheel arches and the wheels themselves
