    The two teaser images show a very similar shape to the Mission E concept (only with wing mirrors)

    They don't really look anything like the mules, they look much sportier, like a four-door supercar instead of an ordinary four door sedan

    Surely this means that the final shape of the Taycan (despite what the mules would have you believe) would be 98% similar to the mission E (It is hard to see why they can't at least keep the overall height at the 1.3m of the Mission E) only with conventional doors?

    These are images which can be seen also in the Taycan brochure which I recieved from my dealer.
    It doesn't say anything.

    Porsche also showed the Mission E when they presented the name Taycan.

    Wish you were right......but almost 100% sure that the mule body is what you'll get.
    The 'E' was beautiful.

    It shows you that the Taycan will be almost indistinguishable from the Mission E - very similar indeed in form.

    It will also retain the wide haunches and rear spoiler.

    Apparently, it'll be 1.38m high and 4.96m long, according to PAG1, so will have same dimensions as Audi E-Tron GT

    Opinions are nice but fact is: we don't know.
    I hope you're right though...

    Porsche used the E at Goodwood, they used the E at Porsche Parade, they use the E at Rennsport, they will continue to use the E and the silhouette of the E.
    I would if I were they.
    It is theirs. It is a product of their incredible Design Dept......and, it was universally well-received.

    But the teaser images of the Taycan clearly show a sleek silhouette. What you see on the teaser images will be the final product

    Indeed, and it would be silly to present an electric Panamera called Taycan instead.
    But then again, concepts hardly make it to production models.
    At this point we just don't know, it's all guessing and assuming.
    Well, that's part of the experience, the waiting, the predictions, the suspense...
    Enjoy this experience while we still don't know how it's gonna look, there will be a day we'll know and then it's over...
    I can't remember being so excited for a new car though...
    Ok, except the Mazda RX Vision, which turned out to be a design study, rather than an actual new rotary car, I was so pissed...
    So....not this time, it's actually going to be produced!
    Let's hope our deposits are put down for a good reason....it must be.
    It should be!

    But we know its dimensions - 1.38m high, 4.96m long - virtually identical to the Audi E-Tron GT. If you thought the E-Tron GT was sleek and sporty, chances are, because they have the same dimensions, so will be the Taycan - especially as we already know it has a sleek silhouette from the teaser pics

    And in the second picture the wide rear haunches are very visible indeed

    But unlike the mission E, in even dark teaser images, and especially in brighter ones, you can see wing mirrors, showing it can only be the production Taycan

    I doubt it. The recent images of the prototypes show a car that is basically identical to the Cross Turismo Concept. Same front section.

    That's how the Taycan is going to look. The Panamera and the Panamera Sport Turismo are also identical apart from the back.

    But those prototypes are just mules. Whereas the Taycan teaser (from the sides and front), which are official pictures, shows very accentuated haunches, and a much sleeker front end

    The prototypes are not "just mules" in my opinion. The cars are clearly based on the Cross Turismo apart from some details and quite a bit of tape. I doubt Porsche is going to have a totally different body style for the regular Taycan and the Cross/Sport Turismo.

    Look at the comparison I found on some other forum. It's the same bonnet. the same fenders, same headlights....

    But there is so much tape on the mules, and the mules are still wearing Panamera body parts.

    No, it looks like that but in fact, those are all Cross Turismo parts.
    I've checked that cuz I was like you, thinking this was all Panamera.
    After looking at the Cross Turismo, I realized they are the same ...
