Agreed. Same battery pack and drive train as the Porsche, but so much better looking.

Aside from the price, the car would never work for me because I drive from Ottawa to Windsor several times per year and none of them will have that sort of range -- not for a while, anyway.
That's where a rental comes into play.

Tesla is dead. This car will wipe its ass with one. It will perform and be a true premium product with fit and finish to match the price tag.

So many salty Tesla people on the internet. I guess they must be anti-Apple fanboys too.

Ahhh yes, the $150K premium car of which they only intend to sell 40,000 is definitely going to kill the $50K economy car which has a 250,000 (?) order book.

LOL

Yeah right, did you read the OP's post? Porsche wants to charge around $80 per charge at their EV stations. How much does Tesla charges? If I would buy a Porsche I would buy a gasoline one, why would I limit myself to an electric one if they are going to charge me $80 a charge?

Salty? Hell no, instead of buying into the apple fanboism of Tesla I will spend my money on a quality product instead.

Who buys an electric car and charge at public places regularly? Those are meant to charge when you're on the road. I guess the exception is when you live in a condo and there is no way to install your own EVSE.
Tesla charges between 22 and 44 c/minute and I believe they stopped offering free SC credits even for new Model S/X purchases.
If they can deliver 350 kWh charging I would have no problem paying $80 when I'm on the road in my Porsche (lol, I wish)

Good thing (based on some comments) there are currently stickers masking the front and tail lights because I don't dig them one bit. If my parents were to gift me one, I probably wouldn't hesitate to say YES PLEASE though.

Great to see a purpose built EV and not some retrofit attempt.

But these are built in such limited numbers...

The headlights look pretty ugly
It’s got a sticker around them. But even with them off it’s ugly lol. Honestly it’s not a good looking car at all. Don’t know why manufacturesrs feel the need to make EV look like some sci-fi shit.

There are stickers to make it ugly, so they say on C/D backfires. The taillights look like an old Pontiac's lol. Also, because of stickers.

I am with EP32K though, the front and back of the Panamera, 911 and Boxer look much better.
