    Re: Porsche Taycan Turbo S - Short Review

    CGX car nut:

    The Audi e-tron GT should be more reasonably priced than the Taycan and it should be out within an year.   

    The design may be a bit too much for many...especially in Europe.

    Also, for corporate customers, Porsche needs better lease offers.

    I would take a Taycan Turbo (not S) for 1500 a month (no initial payment) but not more. For more, I would take the 911 Turbo or Turbo S, no need for an EV. 😜

    What I am saying here: If Porsche and others want to establish EVs as some sort of mainstream cars, they need to offer more attractive offers. If I have the choice of a 911 Turbo or a Taycan Turbo for the same money, I would take the 911, sorry.

    In that not too distant future you might not have a choice in many markets in the EU.  Your market is defined by regulation not consumer choice.

    Maybe but right now, we have bigger problems in my opinion (pandemic, the resulting economic/financial crisis, etc.) and people are not really thinking about buying EVs right now, especially not when they start losing their jobs. 

    The German government wants to prolong the current short-time work allowances to 24 months but at some point, the day of the truth will come and companies will have to decide how many they have to fire or if and when they are closing...for good. Smiley The current billions pumped into the economies will cost us much more than we think. The pandemic has one good thing though, it affected the whole world, so everywhere governments are taking tons of money into their hands, meaning all major economies will be affected in the end, so maybe this is the only "good" thing.

    Great pictures, from both Mark and you. I find it exciting to share the enthusiasm with one's child, luckily I can share mine with my son as well. 

    By the way, had the same haircut with 18 as well... Smiley

    And a great car for a young driver. Probably the best one out there at the moment to learn how to drive properly. Not too powerful ( 200 HP ) , RWD, manual, on the light side, not too expensive Smiley

    Re: Porsche Taycan Turbo S - Short Review

    Lol, what a coincidence, I bought my son a BRZ not too long ago. Not quite as long but my son also keeping long hair too

    Yes it's the tS version, 50 of these in Canada, so more limited than any 'limited' Porsche I have save for the 1 of 6 Exclusive.

    Re: Porsche Taycan Turbo S - Short Review

    Nice Whoopsy!  We tried for a IS version but they were snapped up as soon as they were announced.  Nifty car!

    I can see RC's finger on the keyboard now, telling us to go back to Taycan stuff, so I am going to sign off.  But not without saying thanks for all the nice comments.  And great to know a little more about you guys.  We are blessed to have sons/daughters/families to share the fun of sports cars.wink


    Re: Porsche Taycan Turbo S - Short Review

    Yeah I never pay much attention to these cars. My son took the initiative all by himself. He discussed with friends and settled on the BRZ with the manual. He only mentioned the tS cause that the top model, didn't think I could get him one. 

    But I did, knowing enough people.................

    I rove it a couple times after, fun little thing. The HP level is perfectly fine for kids.

    Is this the son who was driving the Gold R ?  How do you find the car ?  Over here, it is mainly the Toyota version that is sold. ( they are the same cars )  I see rarely the Subaru. Why take the Subaru over the Toyota ?

    Stop talking about getting old. I could have posted pictures of my oldest daughter who is now 51 years old. Or my oldest son who is 48 years old. Or of my wife who is 23 years younger.  You feeling younger now?
