On road drive with initial thoughts via auto-translate.
Looks like mid range/in gear acceleration is instant.

I dunno but I'm noticing a good number of Taycans around here lately. You would think it was a good deal or something.

It's the first Electric luxury sedan. People have been waiting a long time to buy a premium electric car.


Tesla doesn't count. Tesla is impressive on a few fronts, namely everything that revolved around being electric, but nobody in their right mind would argue their cars are on the same level as a high end BMW/Audi/Porsche/Benz.

0-100 km/h in car acceleration - albeit with an early shift into 3rd.
The 4.1 final gearing ought to have 2nd hit 100 I believe.

Normally this type of material is generated based on their cad data, would not make sense to create a new model for that. But mistakes can happen.

Can it be a consequence of moving the engine back? As they may have to change steering rack position for EPS column.

Did anyone see any info regarding ground clearance? Wanna see if lower CG is purely due to that or to the other changes (engine size, placement, aluminum stuff, added bracing on the lower part of chassis)

It's in the press release materials. 5.1" min road clearance.

So, no real change here. 2020 has reported 4.9” ground clearance
