    My guess is that the shape of the car in general will be extremely close to the silhouette that came with the deposit certificate packaging.

    Nope - it will be basically what we've seen with the 'mules' with the headlights uncovered. Here is an early spy shot of the Panamera:

    They just don't change radically from the late-stage test cars because everything is pretty much set, and all they can do is throw some covering onto the body.

    The silhouette on my Macan packaging resembled the Macan's shape almost identically. The Taycan stuff looks pretty close to the mules, however, I think that the front fenders will be slightly different than what we've been seeing in testing. Also, remember that proper wheels and attributes can change the look of a car dramatically.

    For what it's worth....and this is not my list.....but others have done graphic silhouette comparos of the E body to the mule body.....and these were some of the observations:

    ·Roof line is definitely different......the front window rake is different

    ·The whole front profile of the car is has been flattened, now more ‘practical’. Lost is the very low front bonnet and the curvy high, 918-like, fender arches as well as the more pronounced hood ridges on what now appears to be a conventional hood

    ·Side-view profile of rear is definitely different

    ·The view from the rear is very different…..they’ve significantly toned down the broad shoulders over the rears, unfortunate

    ·Of course, we have a conventional B pillar and no suicides

    Nice observations.... For me it's the low hood and high fender arches which defined the look of the Mission E, and what I miss most after seeing the prototypes.

    But the prototype of the 918 was almost 1:1 to the production version.

    Besides, the Taycan is a platform car, you can add any body you like, in this case a Panamera.
    Same as the Cayenne coupé prototype, only slightly (and very strangely) higher:

    Boy I sure hope they are wrong! All those changes make it more like a Pano. If that is the case I will just keep the Pano TTS I already have. Why change if the there is not a radical styling upgrade. I am only half there on EVs all things considered.

    But the teaser images of the production Taycan do indeed show a car which is almost indistinguishable from the concept. It won't have the suicide doors, but there's no reason to believe that the proportions won't be the same or very similar - for instance, I believe the Taycan will have a height of 1.3m, just like the concept. I believe the overall width will also be the same as a Mission E. The 2020 911 has a height of 1.3m, and this is more along the lines of a four-door supercar rather than an average saloon.

    The exactly proportions of the Taycan are:
    height: 1,38
    length: 4,96

    Best Regards

    Sweet, any idea what the width of the Taycan is? Is it wider than the Mission E?

    And I'm surprised about the length! The proportions seem like they'll be the same/very similar to the Audi E-tron GT - I'm sure it'll look very low slung and sporty from the side! Guess it depends how much wider than the Mission E it is though - or narrower? Is it at least 1.95m wide?

    Also this news is very reassuring indeed!

    It means he’s not fully sold on the idea of owning/using an EV.

    I’m feeling a bit the same way. It’s the future for now, but it’s yet far from perfect (Tesla has a big lead of course). Then there’s the emotion... If I could afford it I’d buy a Panamera over a Taycan (EVs are tax free in Norway). The engine noise and gear change alone is worth it :D
