Audi e-tron RS-GT

Finally an EV that looks cool, as well as performs great. Yeah, it's big and heavy, but hopefully we'll see something smaller and lighter in future.

The front end is a complete mess. And the fender vents behind the front wheels are a big head scratcher.

I have seen a black, grey, and white GT in person. I have also seen several Taycans.

The Taycan is the better design, but I don't consider it special.

The GT is a bit of a sore thumb, but it does stand out. I kind of hate it but also appreciate it. The black grill element is bad. But I sort of like the bulky tail lights because every other car right now goes with a long and narrow look. The GT's interior being actually buttons is awesome.

Given all of your time is behind the wheel, I would choose the GT for the interior.

I agree with @mazeroni.

I've seen both and originally thought I'd prefer the GT but I think in the end I actually like the Taycan more. It looks more sleek, IMO.

Especially with the rear end of the GT, something about it just looks too off to me. Maybe too square or something.

Meh, it looks OK. Basically just another entry in the big, heavy, insanely quick luxury EV sedan club. I prefer the looks of the Taycan, slightly. But all these cars are just a bit too big and heavy for my taste. Where are the smaller, lighter, more nimble EV coupes (proper coupes with two doors I mean)?
