    I've looked through every bit of evidence, the teasers etc. many times.

    I can't be 100% sure but considering the evidence I'm cautiously optomistic

    Funny you should mention about the final design being unknown yet as that was exactly my take away. That leads me to believe that Porsche has not yet started to construct the tooling? I guess that is a bit of a concern on when the production of the cars will start.

    Yeah I'm budgeting myself to $100k here before taxes too. Maybe a little over with options but not much. Not sure what number I am.
    I placed a deposit on day 2 or 3 in BC so I'm probably not too bad.

    Maybe, but I ordered a Macan just after the debut in LA a few yrs ago and as I recall there was only the configurator going live around the time of the debut as with the 992. I can’t see Porsche releasing images and specs to 20000+ people prior to a big world premier IMO.

    after seeing Marques Brownlee's Model Y image... I thought I would give it a try for the mission e / taycan.
    to meet it looks very much like the concept.. OR at least thats what they are still using for the pictures. I hope it stays tru throughout the design process.

    Yeah, when I first saw the "Soul,Electrified" video my first thought was 'Meh, that's the Mission E concept".

    Then I noticed the front mirrors (which I've never seen a Mission E with, and I never ever will see a Mission E with) - and I realised that is the production Taycan, the one which will be revealed in full in September, the one you and I will be able to buy shortly, and was taken aback - this looked like a real four-door supercar.

    Though the video is very dark (and thus the detailing is hard to make out) it's a dead cert the profile is near identical to the Mission E - that means those swollen arches, wide hips, ultra low roofline and the sexy front fender that curves fully over the wheel before meeting the A-Pillar are all guaranteed to appear on the production model. I think the integrated rear spoiler will be on the production model too.

    Where did you find the info on the wheels?

    I’ve heard a rumour saying they will be delivered as a limited edition for those on top of the reservation lists.
