    LOL, Don’t be a wimp! It has been over 100f here in S.E. Texas for 5 days in a row. We are drinking boiling water to cool down.... :)

    VERY cool concept, although at that angle at first glance, it almost looks like it’s been side swiped

    I don't have exact informations which model variants will start first.
    But I saw already a lot of production models of the Turbo S, so therefore I think it could be available from the beginning or very soon after.

    Maybe a few days after world premiere.

    I really don't remember such specific details. Last time I saw the production car was already 3 months ago. Maybe I find a Picture of the production car rear with a cover on.

    I don't know, but normally they have to destroy every mule...and also every finished production car for press and fairs. That's totally normal for an OEM (even if it's still very sad).


    And guys, please stay on Topic here and talk at other places about the weather - thank you :)

    Kind regards

    It is widely known fact that if a German tells a joke, he/she also is obligated to immediately explain in detail why the joke was supposed to be funny . ( so you understand my the joke? German jokes aren't funny, so a German has to explain the joke....:CWL:)...No?...guess it wasn't funny.

    It is wishful thinking to believe that there are actually fake panels or padding on this car. If you watch Jonny Smith, he clearly states where camouflage still exists, the front headlights, the fake turn signals on the front bumper, the "gills" by the side vent by the charging ports and the rear taillights which of course the area I suppose what everyone is referring to as the spoiler. Other than those and the interior, I realistically doubt there will be any surprises other than mentioned areas.

    I believe it will be considered and extremely attractive sports SEDAN for people that Porsche considers the target market, those that normally buy 4 door sporty versions of 5 passenger BMWs, Audi, Mercedes, Lexus, Panamera and Tesla Model S. I myself watched the Jonny Smith video on a 65 inch TV screen twice and found the vehicle to be beautiful and exhiliterating.

    Why does Porsche persist in naming EV Turbo? It makes no sense without ICE

    We have photos of two mules that show significantly different body styles. The top photo shows a front bumper with a small overhang and a relatively short, steep windshield. The second photo shows a much larger overhang front bumper and a more steeply sloped windshield. These are very obvious differences between two mules, indicating that either there are either two body styles (doubtful), or there are 'false' panels for the bumper and windshield at the very least.

    My question for PAG is ... which one or combination of these is correct, and are there other body panels that are not right?

    It's 100% the same car/the same design in both photos.

    The difference is the focal length of the lens the photographer used. A wide angle lens in the top image, a telephoto lens in the second one. There are no different body styles or fake panels imo.

    Different focal length = different optical distortion properties.
