    Sorry, but no. The Taycan looks better than that.

    I am OK with the wheels except for black but they sure are not the WOW the Mission E wheels were. All an all it is looking better to my eyes. As others have said the black body covers a lot of the lines and the rear still has red camo and perhaps some on the rear bumper as well. But I still need to see the actual car in person to decide if it goes in my stable or not.:whew::)

    That’s a lambda, which in electro chemistry states the equivalent conductance of an electrolyte solution.

    A super capacitor would be one such applicable form. I wouldn’t read much into it though.

    For those of you worrying about the wheels, NO Porsche ever has proper wheel fitment (to me, at least). They always need some spacers to give it the flush we all love.

    Look at the Mission E. Those wheels are super flush. So, for the Taycan in the photos we're seeing, it's gonna need like a 15-20mm spacer out back for the stock wheels...maybe 10-12 up front.

    Either that, or order some wheels with the right offsets ;)

    I was more thinking about Mercedes, lol.
    Together with the rear lights it looks like one.

    To be honest, i like the Taycan even more than the Mission E. This car is nearly finished and in september it will become real. The mission is a study, a show car nothing more nothing less. And remember the millions of show cars never been produced and also the ones produced but never looked like the concept.

    From my point of view porsche did a great job with the taycan. Imagine how many regulations u got for headlights, mirrors, impact protection, passenger head space,.....
    and the result is a Taycan showing 90% of the mission e details !!!!

    I´m really happy and can´t wait to see the taycan at Frankfurt and hopefully in January in my garage. White, black wheels, sunroof and a lot of electric power ;-)

    I Think Its not a Lambda, Its a Flux Capacitor

    Sorry, I did but there's sooooo much red, there's not really enough other stuff to work with short of totally rebuilding the back end in photoshop which is mucho hours.

    What's the deal with spacers? I know it can make a car look better, but does it hurt handling?

    Wider track doesn't hurt a car's handling. Usually the reason why more performance oriented cars have wider wheels and tires.

    Unless you're just being facetious because I think you're the dude from the Car Lounge on Vortex and you should know this, haha.
