My new Porsche Taycan Turbo S!

Recommended Posts

So I finally got the car back from getting wrapped, and have been out on a few drives. It's a Turbo S with basically all options ticked, one of the first delivered here!

First impression, the car is scary fast! Might seem obvious if you know the numbers (0-60mph in 2.6, 2.4 with rollout), but the way the power is delivered instantaneously feels unreal.

The handling for such a heavy car is also top notch, Porsche has done a very good job hiding the weight with tech.

I'll write some more when I get a few more miles on it :)

Here are some pics of the car and one of my electric collection.taycan1.jpg

Looks sharp! I'm sure it's an absolute monster when the pedal is jammed.

What's your monthly electric bill now with that collection?! :lol2: 

About $10 a month for the cars! Yes, electricity is that cheap here.

That's awesome! Do you have a back-up generator on the home? That's next to nothing for getting your cars around!

The power is so stable here there's no need really. 

PS, I'm stuck on the wrong theme here on the forum, can't change it. Could you reset my theme choice? :)

How does it compare with the Tesla?

There's a few places Tesla is ahead:

  • Mobile app
  • Phone as key
  • Infotainment
  • Price/performance
  • Autopilot
  • Integrated dashcam

But Porsche does a lot of things better than Tesla:

  • Interior fit and finish
  • Drivetrain/suspension
  • Wind/road noise
  • Consistency - The Taycan is designed to behave the same (in terms of throttle response, regen, braking) cold and hot, low charge and full charge.
  • Virtually no performance degradation when doing several launches/pushing the car
  • High speed acceleration (i.e. flooring it from 70-80 mph)
  • While the infotainment is better in the Tesla, Porsche does give you more performance info like G meter, front/rear drive distribution, battery temp and suspension info etc. A lot of this is available in the Tesla with third party tools though
  • Seats with ventilation
  • Hifi (Burmester)
  • Looks and sound, but this is obviously subjective
