Porsche Taycan WORLD EXCLUSIVE genuine first drive & launch control testing 0-200kph 8)

This is an important car not least because the 800V battery could halve the charging times we experience with current electric cars including Tesla's :lol:

Jay Leno loves his Tesla: ‘There’s almost no reason to have a gas car’ (here)

“Steam ran everything from 1800 to about 1911. Then internal combustion took over from 1911 to right about now. And I predict that a child born today probably has as much chance of driving in a gas car as people today have been driving a car with a stick shift”

2020 Porsche Taycan Review: Should Tesla be Worried? (here)

"It's difficult to overestimate the significance of the Porsche Taycan. It's the first electric car from one of the world's most accomplished and acclaimed performance vehicle manufacturers, the product of more than five years' work and an investment of more than $1 billion. It's also the first electric car that will sorely test the loyalties of the Teslarati."

Well it looks like it took a HUGE sh1t in its nappy, but fair play to VW for putting in the effort...

Maybe white wasn't the best colour to choose though. :oops:

Not only the one million mile battery is interesting.
The whole podcast is interesting. (Apart from the start where he goes a bit of a side track.)
