There are a few photos of test mules in the wild. They didn't have the showroom glitz but still look really nice, the sexy curves are definitely there.sorry if already posted, following up on communication from Porsche dealerships regarding the 'Taycan'.........Porsche is letting the dealers set the amount of deposit. Dealers have acknowledged that there are no details to be provided on the car, other than the name and concept picture, and it is likely 2-years out for any production. They are really selling the 'get in line' deposit really hard........wild west however, as i sent requests into (3) different regional dealerships and all (3) came back with different deposit numbers.....$750; $1000; and $2,500. I told them all that while the car looks cool, i'll wait on actual details of the car are provided.
Asking for a $1000 (refundable, right?) deposit, or even $2000 if you scale to the likely eventual price tag, isn't entirely out of line compared to what Tesla asked for 2 years ago. Granted Tesla did name the floor of the stripped base, they didn't name anything else. Maybe they'll get away with it, maybe not, since they aren't blazing as fresh a trail as the Model 3 did.
Still, the "Porsche" name still means something and it's looking relatively isolated in it's price-product point. The stories that suggest the Taycan is meant as an "answer" Tesla's new Roadster is more a stretch than calling the Model 3 a competitor to it. Don't expect that much overlap at the top or the bottom of the Taycan.
