    Like it! I agree that good wheels and a lighter color will really show off the lines. I'm thinking white is a definite possibility, given the look of the concept model.

    yah thinking lighter color as well. to hide the cher bulk of it...... rather thinking chalk grey.........

    Not sure i like the pulled in rear wheels though........ i hope they will end up a little more flush than that......... will definitely go with the fuchs style 5 spoke wheels that they sell for the 992. classic but contemporary.

    They'll most likely be more flush on the top model. Think of the wheel width and offsets for the rest of the tiers.

    Also, nothing a proper H&R spacer can't fine tune.

    Something like this.
    I don't know if they're available for the Taycan but it sure looks like it:

    Just a bit of playing while we still can, right? :ontheloo:

    The Taycan is one of the sleekest 4-door saloons in production, it genuinely looks like a sports coupe from most angles. That's not something you can say about most 4-door vehicles

    guy's btw... if you see a German car plate which is (in this example from LB which is the City Ludwigsburg) and the one or in this case other two following characters - which is here EK - this has a sign :) EK stands for "Erlkönig" this is the translation of pretest vehicle :) hahahahaha

    To my knowledge it's "Elf king" so I'm not sure if I understand your joke correctly.
    Sorry in advance.

    I was thinking, maybe you mean this:
    The 911 is also called "Elfer" in German (which means eleven).
    So EK means "Elfer König" (King of 9-Elevens).
    Right? :D

    But then again, there are much more different license plates on those mules...

    My thoughts exactly! I’ll pass on this version. Does absolutely nothing for me. Glorified Panamera. G’bye.

    okay, this made it a lot better. I am so anxious to see the final production version and the price tag. this car will certainly compete with Tesla S on every level, there is a reason why Tesla announced an update for the S with extra miles.

    But still looks better than the Tesla Model S, the Audi E-Tron GT, and the vast majority of production cars with 4 doors. Even the Peugeot 508 struggles to look better than this

    Not sure about the Audi if it remains true to the concept.
    The concept Taycan aka Mission E >>>>>>>>>>> Audi E-Tron GT
    But a reworked front end panamera "Taycan" is NOT as sexy as the Audi E-Tron GT
    Sorry, but it just isn't.
