My dealer has told me there will be greatly improved technology in the next two years, so I'd be better off with a lease than purchase. I tend to agree that this battery technology will improve significantly in two years, and I don't want to be driving a $250K dinosaur in 3 or 4 years (Yes, that's close to the price including tax, delivery etc...). We've got quite a varied group of experience here. I've got great experience with the Panamera GTS (almost 100K miles), and I've got a lot of track experience in a variety of Porsches, so I can tell you all about that. Not much of this experience is doing me a lot of good with buying my first EV, so I'd be interested in others thoughts. Will Porsche be offering some type of lease/trade-in program? I don't believe they can replace the batteries because they are part of the structure with some 1,000 welds etc. Will Porsche follow Tesla's model and start manufacturing their own batteries? What's the plan that people have in a few years when cars are getting 600 mile range and charging in 30 minutes?? ...and of course much quicker than the initial Turbo S.
