    I know Porsche is always a bit conservative on their numbers but........hello!
    But then again, speedo is always a bit off...

    Actually very rarely are the speedos of an EV off...…. There is no mechanical loss so the only reason to be off is the diameter of the tires..... And in all the EVs I have had it is stunning how accurate the speedos have been...…..

    0-100 mph in 2.7 seconds?

    That's pretty much hypercar territory

    In that case I totally agree as we all want to see those kind of numbers!
    Actually, on the 0-100 a Taycan is as fast as a Bugatti Veyron and the latest Lamborghini, the Sian hybride...
    Hello.
    Also MUCH faster than a Model S on the 0-200.
    I know 0-100 doesn't say it all but still...
    I'm happy. :handsinair:

    Try again. 0-62 mph in 2.7 (aka 0-100kph...)

    Veyron does this in 2.5 (and is 1 second faster 1-160kph and 2 seconds 0-200kph)

    No doubt the Taycan Turbo is quick and that Porsche is always conservative with it's times across every model but let's not get ahead of ourselves here on it being as quick as a Veyron!

    But that's not fair, the Veyron had a head start!
