...let’s talk your fictitious price. It starts at $153,000. The specs you quoted are also for the $187,000 Turbo S. You were only $101,000 off...

...in other words, you could by a 370mi range Model S (Taycan Turbo S is about 220-240) AND a Cayman GT4 for the price of a Turbo S.

Re: The Porsche Taycan is here

The price of 86000$ is for the less powered upcoming version, the non Turbo/Turbo S models. Anyway, when we compare the specs of the Porsche and the Tesla, the faster-than-Lambo win , again.


Let see:
Power:
Faster-than-Lambo: 762hp
Porsche: 750hp


Torque:
Faster-than-Lambo: 723 lb-ft
Porsche: 774 lb-ft


weight:
Faster-than-Lambo: 4883 lbs
Porsche: 5121 lbs


0-60 mph:
Faster-than-Lambo: 2.4 sec
Porsche: 2.6 sec


Range:
Faster-than-Lambo: 345 miles
Porsche: 256 miles


Trunk volume:
Faster-than-Lambo: 26,3 cu/ft
Porsche: 12,9 cu/ft


So, Porsche will need to use the more advanced tech , better interior, best quality and its badge to convince the customers to prefer the Taycan over the faster-than-Lambo Tesla... Of course, those customers that only want to run faster (one or two laps... not much more) dont have to think much.
