  • Porsche Taycan, The First Electric Car Worth Buying

    I would buy one if I won the lottery just to experience that effortless slingshot acceleration like a roller coaster. It's pretty amazing how close the production car came to the Mission E Concept Car. It's pretty much the same other than the suicide doors.



    The most impressive part about the Porsche Taycan, which I briefly experienced -- in prototype form and from the passengerís seat -- on the short, tight track at the Atlanta Porsche Experience Center, wasnít the launch-controlled sub-3-second sprint to 60 mph; a handful of internal combustion-powered cars can manage that feat.

    Nor was it watching the small fleet of EVs (wearing ugly but effective camouflage that included fake taillights and stick-on exhaust tips) aggressively wheel their way around that track, floating like the heavy cars they are yet somehow always finding precision and hooking up with a squeal of tires.

    No, it was a point on one of the straights when, with only a momentís warning, the test driver stood on the accelerator of the already cruising car and rocketed up to triple-digit speeds with glue-you-to-your-seat intensity. It was so effortless, so jaw-droppingly instant.

    It seemed to be Porscheís way of saying that its debut EV, a radical leap into the future for a storied marque, was both electric car-quick and autobahn-fast. It was surefooted enough to handle flogging on a tight track. And it could do it reliably, lap after lap, all day long, never mind the summer heat.

    In other words, Porsche was making it clear that the Taycan is a real Porsche.

    Iím not sure I want to accept the depreciation. https://rennlist.com/forums/taycan-a...l#post16086963. My spec came out to $200k and, a $20-$25k per year hit in value isnít palatable.

      Leasing one of these probably makes the most sense.

        Would agree but not for me due to the miles I put on my daily for work.
