    Taycan Turbo: 850 Nm, 1000Nm in "overboost"...
    Niiiiice!

    But that price... AUS$288.000
    Hmm... not so nice.

    So, based on current exchange rates, pricing in US currency should be 90K to start and up to mid 140K for turbo.

    In my calculator AUS$288.000 is $200.786.
    Right?

    Pretty close, I got US $200,737.43 at the Australian dollar trading at 1.43471. IMO that is too much for the Taycan Turbo S. You can get a ICE Panamera for that kind of money and not have to worry about new model gliches. Also way more than a Tessla S which already has somewhat of a charging station infrastructure already in place and the Taycan will not have as robust of a charging station infrastructure (400 for the entire US is planed but not in place currently).

    I am likely a player at a MSRP for the Taycan Turbo S @ $140k - $160k + tax, license etc. assuming I like the final product. At $200k + tax, license, I will likely stick with ICE vehicles as I am not a fan of the Tesla.upload_2019-7-8_12-42-36.png It seems that the price creep has been pretty significant IMO assuming this information is accurate.:(

    My Pano Turbo S is a fine DD and I got it used two years old with 15k miles on it for way, way less $$$$$$.

    Agree. At $200K USD that’s 911 Turbo territory. I’m hoping that the Aussies are getting ripped off ... sorry guys....

    Correct. Every time I mention price creep on this forum I get blasted,but I know I’m correct. Taycan is now solidly in 911 price structure

    Well, only speculated prices creep as far as I'm concerned.
    Still, there are no exact numbers.
    AUS$288.000 sounds way too much for a Taycan Turbo imho.
    That should be for a Turbo S (if they're gonna introduce it anyway).
    Till then, it's pure speculation.
