    That’s the EV dilema. A car that inspires admiration but not love.

    As a conveyance I think they're cool. But for a spirited drive you'd not pick a full electric. Yet...perhaps never?

    But if it were a choice between this or some other people moving POS like a Panamera, Cayenne, etc surely it would be better to drive?

    Agree 100%.
    I love my Tesla's; but not like I love my 675LT. The EV's are like disposable white goods. A great tool for a particular job; but nothing to lust after. I don't see the point in EV's in a sports car role.

    Just an "app on wheels" with one having a bigger "micro-processor" - (electric motor) than the next. No differentiation in that?

    They all have the same one dimensional driving experience. Nothing emotive about it.

    My favourite non-sportscar Porsche is a Panamera Sport Turismo Turbo S e-hybrid. The range of the Taycan isn’t enough for my regular country trips and I love the ST body more than the booted Taycan.

    AUSTRALIAN PRICING
    4S $191,000
    TURBO $269,100
    TURBO S $339,100

    https://www.caradvice.com.au/854592/...ice-australia/

    The Porsche Taycan– the German brand's first pure electric car – will undercut the iconic 911 Carrera by almost $40,000, accordng to official Australian pricing announced tonight.
    The much-anticipated Porsche Taycan will be offered in Australia from $191,000 plus on-road costs for the entry-level 4S, with the electric vehicle completing the 0-100 dash in a claimed 4 seconds flat – 0.2 seconds faster than the equivalent 911.
    The Taycan 4S is powered by a 79.2kWh Performance Battery producing an output of 320kW/640Nm, and offering up-to 390kW on overboost. It provides a claimed 365 kilometres of range and is capable of a top speed of 250km/h.
    The 93.4kWh Performance Plus battery can also be optioned on the 4S (pricing for this model is yet to be announced), offering an additional 40kW and 10Nm in normal driving conditions, but stretching to a maximum of 420kW on overboost. Claimed driving range is 414km.

    The middle-of-the-range Porsche Taycan Turbo has a big step up in power and price, with $269,100 plus on-road costs buying a claimed 0-100 time of just 3.2 seconds from 460kW, and up-to 500kW on overboost. The 93.4kWh Performance Plus battery has a claimed 850Nm, and a model-best range of 420km.
    But the crowning glory belongs to the flagship Porsche Taycan Turbo S, boasting the best claimed 0-100 time of 2.8 seconds – just 0.3 seconds off a Bugatti Chiron. Those seeking bragging rights will need to pay $339,100 plus on-road costs.
    While the power output and top speed are the same between the Taycan Turbo and Turbo S models (460kW / 260km/h), the Turbo S gets an additional 200Nm of torque (exactly the same total torque produced by a Mercedes-Benz A180) for a maximum of 1050Nm. Range is reduced to 405km.

    All three variants of the Taycan receive their own individual set of brakes, starting at 360mm cast iron rotors mated to 6-piston calipers for the 4S. Both the Turbo and Turbo S receive 10-piston calipers, though the Turbo receives 415mm coated brake discs, whereas the Turbo S will be fitted with 420mm ceramic rotors.
    The Porsche Taycan is the first electric vehicle to utilise an 800 volt system, with every other electric vehicle having a 400 volt system. Not only does this allow the driver greater access to the performance available from the battery, but Porsche claims this will also help to improve recharging times.
    All Australian-delivered Taycans come with a Mode 3 charging cable for use at AC public charging stations, while a 150kW on-board DC charger is standard for 400 volt charging stations. Porsche will put owners in touch with home charging station experts.

    Buyers of the Taycan will receive a complimentary three year subscription with Chargefox, giving them access to 22 charging stations across the country. It's understood that this is in addition to Porsche's own Designated Charging network.

    That's more aggressive pricing than I expected. No doubt the options list is huge.

    Fair enough.
    For me buying an EV is much like buying white goods, all I care about is overall functionality and there is pretty much no emotive reasoning behind it. I'm sure the Porsche is a better drive dynamically; but overall the Tesla is the superior package. If I bought any other brand I would really miss the tesla autopilot more than anything else. Closely followed by the Supercharger network since Tesla installed 6 of them a few minutes from home

    I lightly specced a 4S and it was 220k on the road. There are some nice new colours in the range. Cherry red, Neptune blue and a few others.
