    Not a lot of new information. Looks good and will drive better than all other BEVs.

    The video should calm people down who still expect big design changes/different body panels etc though. That's not going to happen.

    The rear wing, seems to be a kind of a lip that opens up and not fully raise. At least that's what I noticed. Anyone notice any different?

    If the above is true, Model S P100D does that in over 10 secs. I believe in 10.5 secs. Thats impressive. That might be because the Taycan has a 2nd gear?

    My thoughts after watching the vid, firstly the Porsche engineers are cagey over nearly every detail! Jonny mentioned 250kw charging (vs 350kw) which is a little disappointing, hopefully with time it will be a software update and not a new model. I’m 100% convinced now we are looking at the final design, I cannot see how the rear can be different for the production model. Having said that I’m very happy with the way it looks, very sleek, classy and restrained. That spaceship sound is quite cool. I’m hopeful Jonny’s pricing speculation is right, that way a nicely specced ‘4s’ model should come in under £100,000. ‘Driving charisma is clear’ - I think this is a perfect way of explaining what a Porsche is all about, so even if the specs are not what we hoped for, the handling will be.

    Very relieved to hear that there is an 'aero' button that you can use to increase the range and keep that ridiculous flap from splitting away from the body and ruining the line of the car.
