Re: Porsche Taycan

I prefer my Porsche Taycan, not stirred..........For real though they got the right idea putting emphasis on the charging times. People wont fully adopt EVs until they function and act like a normal everyday car.

These might be closer to the production model.

Re: Porsche Taycan

Boy do I agree that charging times is the big advantage these days. Nobody cares if you break the legal speed limit in 3.0 or 2.7 sec. Both are far too fast for most. Give me quick charging and decent range. I would much rather have 300 miles of range with 30 min charges, then 600 miles of range with 4 hour charges.

Re: Porsche Taycan

...efficiency plays about a big of a role as does kWh of service available. A current Mod 3 charges at a rate of 450mph at 120kwh with overhead for the next lvl SC, which is rumored for 180kwh. So, a Mod 3 would theoretically hit 650+ mph charge rate. The Roadster, since it will be more aero will likely have no trouble hitting 700+ mph charge rate, meaning youíll get 600mi range and over 600mph charge rate, or get half that range and still have a 600+ mph charge rate in the Model 3. And remember, that is at 180kwh service, half what the Porsche offers. Of course, the chargers the Porsche will use are all offline because of that charge rate, the cables have to be liquid cooled, something the 180 kWh chargers will not need, meaning more charge stations because of the reduced price of installation.

No, imagine a cross between a Panamera and a 911 and youíll have it. Those are still the concept bodies rendered.

...as long as people think they need to act like an everyday car, for sure. But you charge them at home every night and rarely charge elsewhere, which is the opposite of how normal every day cars function. Why would anyone pay more for electricity at a charge station when they could get it for 1/3 the price at home, unless they are apartment bound with no recourse?

Or unless they take their EV on longer trips every now and then.

People don't like to have limits placed on them even though they may place limits on themselves. Sure, most EV drivers may commute small distances and charge at home but it's freeing for drivers to know that they can take a trip and not have to wait for an hour while charging away. It is best to remember that the manufacturers with a few extra selling points may be the ones who swing the sale.

...yes, as someone who drives an EV every day, I'm well aware of their limitations. EVs currently are not the best choice for every single person in the world, but they are for a large portion of people. They don't have to be the best at everything to be the best over-all choice. Sitting around for an hour a couple times per year waiting for a long range charge is no different than waiting around for an hour a coupe times per year to get an oil change.
