I read some Porsche marketing blurb soon after the Taycan came out that the turbo moniker is to denote the 'faster' version, not necessarily to represent the presence of a turbocharger. Wouldn't you want the world to know you're driving the faster one.... cos it's turboThe big bug for me is the turbo version. Its electric, it doesnt have a turbo.
Or push a few folks towards the Long Range.Whoa, big price rise for the Plaid+
Over 280k now.
I'm hoping that they honour the old price!
They did (despite crazy AUD / USD changes) back in 2015 , so hopefully this time too.
At that price , it will push a few folks towards the Taycan , I suspect...
Long Range 0-100km/h time is still ridiculously fast.Or push a few folks towards the Long Range.
I was tossing up between Long Range and Plaid/Plaid+. Getting harder to justify an extra $130,000 for better 0-100 times on essentially the same car.
Yep still love it, and have no regrets. I jumped on board knowing full well I was paying just to be an early adopter and saw it as an investment in the future. Plaid+ is my next upgrade for sure.Yes, there are some among us who got the toughest part of the deal with pricing and exchange rate.
Good on you- hope you're still loving it!
You could cancel, but I would be very surprised if they didn’t honour a lower price at time of purchase.I'm tempted to lock in a pre-order now but was hoping with the raising AUD over the next few months, given current trends it might have come down.
Or do you just pre-order now and if it drops in price, cancel and do it again?
Long Range 0-100km/h time is still ridiculously fast.
If it is LIGHTER than the Plaid + (which will be packed to the gills with batteries, albeit in a lighter structure) then maybe it will handle better?
Weights and driving experience remain to be known....
Model S crappy driving experience? Not in my world. Sure it's a big heavy bus but then so is a Maserati Quattroporte.Model S already isn't a particularly great driving car and not sure if the increase in power can really make up for the crappy driving experience
