    I believe what he's saying is drivers, those enthusiasts who view and enjoy driving as a skill and (implied) practice that skill safely, will appreciate its handling capability. Drivers who prefer to operate a motor vehicle may not (need to) care much at all, as you suggest. Drivers with more enthusiasm than sense might also appreciate it, though at this price point I don't think they're a real consideration

    Nice car.... but where you want to charge the battery in germany? There's no infrastructure and the cost for electric is the highest all over Europe. And it's not Environmentally friendly cause the production of such battery produces more CO2 than a Diesel Car after 100.000 kilometers. The range of the car is about 400 kilometers. So only another overpriced toy for rich people.

    Not boasting but I earn very good money, enough per year to but several Porsche taycans. Launch control is for boy racers. Would want a car to do what I expect it to do, get me from A to B in relative comfort and faster than I can walk and run. I drive would you believe a ford kuga 2011 2.5 turbo its smart its fast enough and I don't have to worry about complicated stuff going wrong. I've had the bentleys the Porsche's and even a rolls phantom but with all these high end cars I worried on a day to day basis about them getting trashed by jealous people, the cost of maintaining them. So I pour my money into my houses and my family. And still enjoy the fact my kuga gets me to places faster than I can walk or run. This knowledge comes with experience age and wisdom. Enjoy the fast cars. Thanks Rory for great review I might buy one in the future.

    The whole RWD vs AWD fun difference doesn't make any sense for electric cars. You have two independent motors, so you can easily turn an AWD electric car into RWD. Better to save the money and get a Model 3 Performance. Just turn on Track mode, set rear bias to 100, stability control off, now you have a fun RWD electric car that can do 0-60 in around 3.1s, and it's lighter.

    Nice video. In the 4S the rear transmission is disconnected and you are driving on the front wheels only unless you step on it. That takes the advantage of using the high gear for range away. Does this one get extra range because of it. if so, I wonder why they just don't disconnect the front motor in a 4S to get more range.

    @AutoTrader The point I was trying to make is that Porsche has come out with a car that Tesla had 6 years ago, and they're charging WAY more for it to spec it out with what came standard on that car. It's not a reasonably priced step in the right direction for bringing affordable electric cars to the masses, and it's only game changing in the sense that it's an ev with a Porsche badge. You don't even need to settle for a RWD only vehicle, if you want to have tail out madness, with drift mode on the Teslas. When you're done hooning, you get the traction and control of all wheel drive in the dual motor models....for less money. Porsche is dangling this in car lover's faces saying "We can do this too, but we're going to want more money than is reasonable, even with the clout our name brings." It's insulting.

    3 Standard Range Plus is a fantastic car. There's a review of it in this channel. I recommend it highly. Very different type of car to the Taycan though, and I believe I already made that point. But if people want to cross shop them that's fine.

    @AutoTrader Yeah, now they make faster, more powerful cars, with better range. You can still BUY the 85 though, and at a MUCH lower cost than this Porsche, likely with little to no battery degradation and a few years of warranty left. Even if it's lost 10-15% of it's range, it'd still compete with the Porsche just fine. Then there's the charging network, charging speed, and availability for purchase. If you HAVE to have new, the standard range plus model 3 is a match for it on pretty much everything but size as well. I'm all for other manufactures finally competing with Tesla for reasonable electric cars. But they have to be reasonable by comparison, and this isn't.

    Why would anyone opt for a rear wheel drive car when a 4 wheel drive car is available, cheaper and has more range? Makes no sense. Just watching the video shows several times the back end coming around on the driver. Throw in a little water or snow and your $80k investment is in the ditch. Moronic

    It has very good brakes, because it is slow. It has a luxurious interior, because it is expensive and slow. I'm curious, what other car/s in its price range has a face-morphing acceleration other than a tesla?

    Iโ€™ve driven a base Tesla ยฃ40k and performance wise will be equal to this best save ยฃ60k and buy a proper ICE Porsche to run alongside! One thing Iโ€™d like to know does the Taycan loose range while left in cold overnight? The model 3 lost 40 Miles of range per night in cold uk weather!

    how come they can't make electric cars sound good when electric forklifts sound good but I guess your right on top of the motor in a electric forklift so you hear all the sounds

    It's great that there are more brands building EVs which creates a more diverse future, and the Porsche Taycan certainly delivered a package that is very impressive in terms of refinements. But I imagine the people who chooses this over say the Tesla Model 3 SR+ (similar specs) are quite well off.

    Everyone is comparing this with a Tesla Model 3, but even a Polestar 2 with a list price of ยฃ 50 k / โ‚ฌ 60 k is faster, has every option as standard and also drives as a 'grown up' car...

    If Tesla would add a Track mode or traction control off in their RWD model 3 that would got to be more fun than a +2 tons Porsche and at half price.

    Nope, itโ€™ll still be a Tesla, it canโ€™t be as good as Porsche.

    Porsche owners value the overall luxury. Tesla is still way behind in that aspect. I mean if you pay 100โ‚ฌ for a Porsche is because you discarded Tesla for a reason.

    And they would gleefully revel in their fart noises while the Taycan owner nestles into real leather with actual knobs and buttons to do simple things while DRIVING. Edit: I'm actually in the market for a 3 Performance, it just seems kinda silly to rely so much on the screen but the price IS hard to beat...
