You're probably correct. Unless there will be some updates, I doubt that many would choose a Model S over the Taycan, for the same money. That may highlight the fact that a Model 3, for roughly half the price, may be a decent compromise. On the other hand, if the Taycan has good performance (which it will most certainly will) and it truly starts at the same-ish price as the Panamera, then it may look like a decent "value" among the other Porsches. Even a freakin' base 718 is $70K by the time you add a decent-sounding radio, electric seats and automatic AC. A Taycan with a $7.5K credit, 3 years of free charging and hopefully lower maintenance costs, will not be that far off. By the way, I just read this (forgot where) that Porsche revised the given 0-60 for the Taycan to "under 3.0 seconds". I'm guessing that's for the 4S version they're launching first.
