Porsche have already declared that the 800v charging will only be available at dealerships.I think Porsche is claiming a little too much with the 800v System in relation to the charging times and speed. I can see it will eventually get there but it will take time, by then Tesla would of been there and done that. They seem to be so far advanced in battery system and electrical system it's going to take a long time for traditional automakers to catch up.
As for charging options.. nothing comes close to the Supercharger network in Australia (despite it still needs a lot of work) and other companies out there are not rolling out fast enough IMO. Once again everyone else will be late to the party.
Technology will be up there with Tesla but once again a little late to the party. Will they have LTE for all cars? Spotify? AutoPilot/Other Driver Assist? If so will it be as good as Tesla. They have had a head start of 8 years.
As for styling, performance, fit and finish I'm sure it will be stunning (albeit many more physical buttons to push).
Really? It has a CCS2 connector so surely can charge at 800V with other CCS2 facilities such as Chargefox.Porsche have already declared that the 800v charging will only be available at dealerships.
Because Tesla will fail and there is no point competing with someone that will fail... Or so they thought...I still marvel at how traditional automakers slept so long and deep while Tesla got a 7-8 year advantage on all of them! That is the sort of market advantage you just don't ever get except by a sheer miracle.
Agreed, 22kW is very useful, I envy the older cars with dual chargers.Really? It has a CCS2 connector so surely can charge at 800V with other CCS2 facilities such as Chargefox.
I also like that it has 22kW AC charging. Not quite sure why Tesla lowered the charger capabilities in recent years. Pretty much all of the world outside US has easy access to 3-phase 32A. 22kW charging should be a no brainer. Being 50-100% faster to charge at home does matter.
Will definitely take one for a test drive when they reach Australia. I'm not sure it'll replace my roadster order but there's a lot that I think porsche has got right with the design. It's also great to see them doing extensive testing before releasing to the public.
Huh? They'll be able to use the NRMA Fast Charging network in NSW and the QLD Electric Highway. What does VIC have?Every one of these buyers will be slightly miffed that they can't drive between Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne like Tesla owners can.
