    Speak for yourself, Captain Ass-umptions. My lease is up on my Macan soon, and the Taycan is taking it's place.

    Expect about the same as a 2013 Model S 70D or a 2018 Chevy Bolt (240miles) or just short of a new Hyundai Kona, (258).

    No need for adolescent name-calling, take it elsewhere.

    I'm happy for everyone that has deposits down, or is on their dealer list, or otherwise plans to buy a Taycan. I'm part of that group as well. But the range concern has lacked teeth on this forum, and many others, regarding Taycan. There is no reason to give Porsche a pass on this topic simply because of their history.

    For your situation, I hope "soon" means well into 2020.

    Agree. Range is key in this purchase equation

    Leases are always extendable, Mr Poopy Pants.

    Part of what is missing from this discussion is that those cars cost $35K-$70K. For the first year the Taycan is going to cost $130,000+. For that money you should be able to "have it all" - looks, performance, handling, and range.

    so if we think that the numbers on the center console are correct real world driving figures then the 100% range would be about 385km...... on a 96kwh battery..... that’s about what i was getting on my original T model S..... with an 85kwh battery..... so not exceptional but sufficient considering one probably dive a porsche more aggressively than a T model S.........

    To follow up on what others have said, Tesla battery tech is several years ahead of .... everyone on an industrial scale and they’ve been tuning their software and infrastructure based on real world results for 6 years. The Model 3 performance trim is a fantastic. One of the best cars available. It’s also Tesla v2 platform, re-envisioned after the model S. It still has better batteries than the model S, and the S only got motor upgrades as good as the 3 this summer.

    this is Porsche’s v1. It’s where Tesla was 3-4 years ago. The Taycan’s J1 architecture was developed with Audi and is very similar to the e-tron. I expect the next model successor to the taycan will be significantly better. It’s going to have range that several years behind Tesla. It’s Porsche’s first major BEV initiative and it will have issues.

    But not everyone needs 500km. I drive 25mi / day. Long trips involve flying. A 2015 Model S with 911 handling, Porsche build quality, and carbon ceramic brakes ? F—- Yeah.

    maybe not for everyone. The rate of change here is going to be astounding. Maybe pass on the 2020 model. Or maybe lease. A lot of different Demographics

    I don't think it makes much sense to speculate about the maximum range based on these images and the numbers displayed.

    There are so many variables to take into consideration. How hard the car was driven and what driving mode was selected. In another image you can see that the SPORT-mode was activated. That impacts range.

    There's also a RANGE-mode that surely yields better results.

    The Taycan J1-platform has nothing to do with Audi e-tron SUV architecture.

    my concern about Tesla is they are 6 years behind in exterior design with no plans to upgrade the S or X. Boring sedan look for me personally is a deal breaker

    First of all, let´s wait for the real numbers on Sept. 04 ;-) Range is for sure a topic but everyone has to make his own scenario. What´s my daily range, how often do i need more than 400km a day, what is the main reason to buy this car.

    My very personal view is, that i´m looking out for a sporty car which allows me to take my wife and 2 kinds on a nice weekendtrip. Use it for daily work and buisness trips (between 10- 250km) and having lots of fun driving it (also fast). Nothing more and less. All these points are perfectly fullfilled with the Taycan. Even when charging will be as fast as predicted this car will fit FOR ME in a perfect way.

    And to be honest, if you drive your 911 Turbo in a very sporty way, 400Km range is optimistic ;-) (65l tank and 15l +per 100km)........

    Only my point of view. And fortunately no one has to buy the Taycan it´s your choice.......

    Same , I don't have the range concerns as long as it's decent and fun to drive.

    It comes down to this: can you live with a somewhat shorter range in exchange for the Porsche unparalleled driving dynamics or are you going to be satisfied with an extended range in an econo-box?
