    Yeah for sure!

    I still think the sedan looks better, but still!

    Oh no, don't turn the beautiful Taycan into an ugly Panamera minivan, please!

    Nice to see this out and about. Looking forward to seeing the Macan redesign.

    The thing I don't understand is why can't they just stick to the Cross Turismo and be happy with that.

    Porsche has been going on and on about the Taycan being a sportscar and then they introduce this monstrosity that looks like a bl**dy hearse.
    Ain't much left of Mission E that's for sure.

    they’re being moderately aggressive about rolling out BEV across the lines. It’s a good thing, although this model isn’t interesting to most of us here. The Bev macan will hopefully be followed by a Bev cayman which should be interesting. And then hopefully a hybrid 911 turbo.

    lol. I know all those words, but I just don’t understand what you’re saying ... Personally I’d rather more 911 and less panamera. I suspect the Bev macan will be popular although it doesn’t sing to me any more than the current macan.

    There's a Taycan group on Facebook so I found out some people cancelled theirs just cuz it doesn't have enough room.

    I think there will be more (two door) sportscars in the future.
    Right now it's just more about volume models (although expensive) right beside the Panamera for the ice line.
    There will be a sportscar beside the 911 (but much later, also after the Tesla Roadster 2)
    And already announced: an electric Macan beside the Cayenne and or ice Macan.
    This way you can decrease the ice line when sales go down in favor of electric.
    Something like that.

    Because there wasn't enough or because there's too much?

    It's in my previous comment.
    Not enough.

    That makes me feel slightly relieved, to be honest.

    It sort of signifies the message of the Taycan as a sports car - and Porsches are supposed to be sporty, not practical.
