    Yeah, but I think that's because they were taken at different camera angles

    The second one is where the camera angle is much lower, so the spoiler becomes less pronounced as it's less visible, and so the whole profile of the car is distorted. That's one of the things that most intrigues me about the Mission E, it was designed in such a way that the profile can distort somewhat as you look at it from different angles, it's hard to explain, but it's designed in such a way that the profile can distort whichever angle you look at it from, but it adds to the feeling of a 4-door supercar - many cars are four-door coupes, but the Mission E is a 4 door supercar, as the Taycan will be.

    Both images are of the Mission E concept, but in the first one the camera angle is a little higher, whereas in the second one it's lower, and the profile of the car looks different - not much, but some of the curves are more pronounced in different ways.

    A few degrees difference in height yes, but it would rather be the distance from the car. I guess they were really close and used a wide angle lens for #28 pic. Bit misguiding though, makes the car look VERY short and with the wheels very far out. Which again makes the wheels look enormous. Bit strange the wheels don’t look a bit elliptical though.

    They should only use a lens that resembles the human eye IMO.

    If you look at the spacing tire-wheel well you see that it's very uneven = taken very close to the car with a wide ange lense.

    yes the stuff that looks panameraish is all camo. the underpinning is the “same” panels as the CT. and as i have said before in these posts, the representative at the official unveiling of the CT told me that what we got to see on the CT were a lot of production ready parts with some more concept oriented ideas added to be specific CT concept and not taycan or rather mission-e at the time. and obviously a taller car concept so as not to reveal the final proportions too much..... interesting tactic.

    Gotta ask... won’t they be called:
    Taycan (sedan)
    Taycan Cross Turismo

    I see several people referring to the CT as not being a Taycan...

    Nah, people just call it the CT as its just easier to type. It's definitely a Taycan - but significantly taller than the four-door coupe

    I know but I was more thinking what it’s officially named by Porsche.

    I'm still not convinced that there will be a Taycan CROSS Turismo. Despite some Porsche comments. The prototypes looked much more like a SPORT Turismo.

    Some my guess:
    Taycan
    Taycan Sport Turismo

    And they both will be basically identical apart from the back.

    I agree. Why couldn’t they just stick to race track related names? Even Daytona although that’s been taken

    Rather a number, at least as an alternative. 911, 928, 944, 924, 964, 968. Keep going like that! 901 like the 911 was supposed to be called at the very start?

    Cayenne = A hot spice
    Panamera = Pan American
    Macan = Some kind of nut?
    Taycan = Some sort of very bad weather? :D
