    Congrats Eric and thanks for the pictures and your impressions. It it wasn't for the depreciation I'd already changed the Tesla for the Taycan, but I already burned my fingers. Will have a look again in autumn when the sport turismo is released (maybe).
    btw SWMBO and myself will have 20yr anniversary in 2 weeks

    Any cake? Smiley

    Congrats! Smiley

    And RC, thank you for telling me how to load my profile pic. I took this picture at the WEC race in Austin Texas two years ago. It’s a 919 coming out of the pits. My son and I went to the race and had a great time together.

    Certainly one of the most impressive cars ever built and even more after Porsche "opened it up". Recently I had the chance to sit in an LMP1 car and after that my RS felt like a bus :)

    The GT3 idea has died. Dealer doesn't want to go down further with the offer. I guess he thinks he can sell the car fast. Not so sure about it, especially in the current market but who knows?! 

    My wife waits now for the 992 GT3 and will decide afterwards what she wants. Sounds reasonable. 
    Dealer offered her a very nice 992 C4 Coupe, fully loaded, for a very attractive lease rate (for 18 months) but it doesn't make any sense for her. She wanted something special but the 992 C4 Coupe is just another 911 and she doesn't want it. I get it, even if I had to admit that I would be tempted. 18 months aren't a long time.

    Dealer also hinted at possible Taycan "incentives" (lease) in the near future, so this could be interesting for me. I could see myself driving a Taycan Turbo or Turbo S as a business car but not for 3000 EUR a month. Smiley

    Re: Porsche Taycan Turbo S - Short Review

    SportAuto tested the Taycan turbo s in their latest edition.

    Key statements:

    - Overall they like the car a lot it seems, however:
    - Initial understeer, a lot of oversteer coming out of corners
    - They state that more than 4 laps (their test track was about 2min long) are problematical...
    - Range drops enormously when you use the full power...
    - Still, they write, a 991 GT3 RS would be 2-3 (!) faster on the track they used...

    - It will be a long time until electrical cars can compete with regular sports cars

    Well Smiley

    0-100kph: 2.8s
    0-200kph: 9.6s
    200kph-0: 134.2m

    Why they would compare the car to a track ca (GT3 RS) is a mystery to me. Smiley

    Everything else is true (the oversteer is probably only an issue on the track, I guess the tires cannot handle the torque and/or excessive weight at some point, didn't have any traction or serious understeer/oversteer issues) but I wish they would mention the price tag as well. The Taycan Turbo S is way too expensive for the range it offers. With double the range of the Tesla S Performance, maybe but this would probably increase the weight by 300 kg. Smiley

    Re: Porsche Taycan Turbo S - Short Review

    I loved (I really mean it) the Taycan Turbo S but it could never replace any sports car. I would probably prefer even an Audi TT RS over the Taycan Turbo S and it isn't even a real sports car. Smiley

    Re: Porsche Taycan Turbo S - Short Review

    On a related note Tesla just sent a free upgrade to the S adding performance.  Not that it matters but it may be a better comparison than a gt3 RS. Btw off by a few seconds against an RS is bad ass.

    Probably the wrong thread, but WTF. Came across these 1973 pics when a buddy and I (on left) were racing off road in Baja, Mexico.  We were junior members of a team with Parnelli Jones, Bill Stroppe and Walker Evans. And we are still alive!  BTW, the Ford truck was mostly fiberglass and had over 550hp.  It was great off road, but hell on pavement.

    They compared the Taycan to the RS because of price. Both are similarly priced. The RS is far away the best performing car I have ever owned.

    Panamara Turbo S would be a better comparison. 
    What are the odds the Porsche will ever see a power or range increase come via over the air update? Let me know when this happens.

    That sounds like you are happy about it. Weird

    You would think they might have learned something.  We will see how they do. 
    Given that they silence exhausts during oil changes if they feel like it I would not be surprised if the take power away if they see cars wearing out components.
