Comparing the Tesla to the Porsche is a bit apples and oranges here. If you scratch beneath the surface of both being high-end EVs, it becomes very clear that they are very different beasts.

I'll eat my own shoe if the Taycan isn't going to be miles ahead of the Model S in terms of dynamics and handling, simply because it's a Porsche. They have been doing this for what, 80 years now? Their track record isn't exactly shabby either.

In terms of range, the Taycan doesn't measure up quite as well as the Tesla in terms of ratings, but truth to be told, it's still plenty for your average commuting. Plus, your average Taycan owner is probably going to have a gasoline cruiser in his garage anyway if they're that concerned with range.

As for pricing... it's a Porsche. The quality is going to be top-notch, and the rest is going to go towards profit (which is around $17k per unit at the moment - probably the highest amount per unit amongst the volume manufacturers). Nothing unexpected really. Porsche isn't here to take aim at Tesla in terms of pricing or to deliver value for money, that's going to be Audi's job with whatever E-Tron they are going to bring out.

Exactly. I've said it a couple of times - but that point was missed.

Here's a very detailed article on the Taycan's engineering and tech:
