    Oh man, I can't wait to the final reveal so you'll see just how wrong you are.

    This is 100% the final body. Not a mule.

    Unless you consider something with a few strips of camo tape to be a mule.

    I can't decide if I find this design stunning or generic. It's so understated and so totally Porsche. Can't wait to see it in all its glory.

    I agree with GreggT. If the Taycan's body looks like the mules, Porsche has missed a big opportunity. A lot of people put down deposits with expectations of the "E" body style. Wide rear hips and aggressive style. As I said before I am hoping the Turbo S has the aggressive wide rear hips.

    There's no chance imo that Porsche will produce a Taycan with an extra-wide body. They stopped doing this with the 911. No way they will introduce different body sizes with the Taycan.

    The car we saw at Goodwood Festival is the production model (with a couple of stickers)

    And Panamera. Not that easy to compare from these images but in terms of rear width & flanks it looks like the Taycan sits in between the Mission e and the Panamera which by now I suppose we all already know

    Raek, get one of your computer mates (or if you haven’t got any) someone you know, to transpose the Taycan headlights and air vent slot on to a Panamera image
    Hopefully this would allow you (if ‘your’ not too narrow-minded) to see the similarities fellow members have suggested
    By the way, did it really take you 6 months to figure out the LED strips on the front bumper might just be stickers? Or was that post a joke?
    If not, (Heads up) The reddened areas surrounding the tail light strip are also stickers

    I like all Porsche models, some more than others but overall, yes I like them all.
    The only model of Porsche I don't like is the first series of the Panamera, also known as the hungeback of Notre Dame.
    But Porsche wouldn't be Porsche if they wouldn't be listening to their customers.
    So they redesigned the back which is much better now.
    I've stopped looking at the Mission E and focus on the Taycan cuz that's what's it all about.
    In my opinion, the Taycan is actually what I want a Panamera to look like.
    It's also nice to see design elements of the Mission E have been used.
    After letting the Mission E go, the Taycan starts to grow on me.
    Like I started this comment as "I like all Porsches", I think the Taycan is no exception.
    Do I like it enough to actually buy it?
    I'm not quite sure yet.
    It all depends on 4th of September or in my case, the actual live meeting with the Taycan at the IAA in Frankfurt.

    PS I really enjoy this journey from concept to first spy shots to presentation of the production model...

    I thought this image of your ‘ misson E’ was floated as an image of the production Taycan by Porsche in their teasers release?
    Are those front guards not mirrors we see sticking up above the rear fenders?

    Yep, I agree, the stickers and some camo. I think the horse has left the barn on this topic:)

    *you're

    Also, not too sure of what you're talking about, Lieutenant McStalky...but, if I did make a reference to those LED strips (and the side stickers) it was certainly in jest.

    True, I assumed that was the Mission e with door mirrors added and not the Taycan

    I’m not sure why we are fighting here.
    We are either going to buy the car or not.
    The final product of course will look better than the mule, but we can see it will be no mission E.

    It’s clear this is more sedan and less sports sedan. This is fine with some and not others.

    For me personally, I am looking forward to the new C8 corvette reveal in a weeks time as well as the GT4 “touring” model being unmasked ( I’ve been denied a GT4 allocation)

    The Taycan is not what I want, but I can’t argue or deny it’s exactly what others want.
    Either way, the deposits are refundable.

    Lost time is expected with any hobby. This is far from the worst offender.
    I’m still waiting for my Nissan iDX, my Toyota SFR and my Honda HSV. All had forums and I’ve spent numerous hours there.

    You guys think those huge, ugly rear tail lights are just tape? They seem identical on all the Taycans in the photos... Why go to that effort?
