    @PAG_J1: How similar will the sedan and Cross Turismo be?

    Will the CT be 100% like the concept?

    I don't know much more, just that they'll be avaible in 4-5 colour options and the carbon is more like a carbon foile...but I'm not sure. Here is a little tease pic (It's intentionally bad, I don't want to leak too much ;) )

    I think it will be nearly the same car as the Taycan - just as a Combi. But I'm not involved in CT projects till now - didn't even had contact with the prototype of the car. So sorry I can't answer such questions right now...

    Also, will the Taycan's red colored areas - the wheel arch and rear lip - be more similar to the mules or the concept

    Also will the rear lip at 1 be as pronounced, and the haunches at 2 be as pronounced as the Mission E, or closer to the mules?

    Those wheels have been on EBay for years. I don’t believe for a second those are actual production rims for this car

    that’s an interesting thought...... not sure this pic is any relevance but why would e-bay wheels be adorning an official sketch of the upcoming Taycan if they were not real porsche design............ a little odd way for the designer to go about things don’t you think...... i’ve heard of copies on e-bay but never the other way around.....

    I'm pretty sure the front half of the Taycan will look almost exactly like the Cross Turismo concept (side profile)

    But of course without the body cladding and the raised ride height (indeed, as the Taycan is only 1.38m tall, a significantly lower ride height than the CT) - but the question is how close will the rear of the Taycan look compared to the Mission E?

    My point exactly! Very small hips on the CT vs Mission E.

    The CT will also be called Taycan right? Taycan Cross Turismo

    Honestly, who cares about the wheels? You can purchase aftermarket wheels pretty much in whatever configuration you want. You can't purchase an aftermarket body style (ok, you can add cheap looking attachments, etc.). I just want to see what the car looks like, and really don't care about the wheel selection at all.

    take away the body cladding, lower the ride height and you'd find it difficult to tell front of the CT from the Mission E

    Agree bar the «nostrils» (lights). But the rear...

    I really hope that the rear of the Taycan is as close to the Mission E as possible. I somehow don't think the integrated spoiler will make the cut, but at least if they could jut out the top part of the taillights it would give off more of a squared off look - this is why aston gives their DBS a spoiler, just to stop the rear end looking droopy (like the Audi E-Tron GT's rear end which looks a bit too curved and droopy)

    Here's another proof; they're the official wheels for the Taycan.

    I just saw the finished production Taycan once. So it looks like, like I already explained it in other posts.

    Best regards
