    Was ich nie verstehen werde - ich kaufe ein Auto weit 100.000 Euro und das Kabel liegt wie bei jedem Billighersteller im Dreck und wird klatschnass oder voller Schnee oder Hundesch...e in den Kofferraum geworfen. Warum hat es die Industrie nach über 10 Jahren immer noch nicht geschafft, an den Schnellladestationen 5m lange, ausziehbare Kabel wie an jeder Tankstellenzapfsäule anzubieten? Ich parke doch auch nicht auf dem Rastplatz, um dann mit meinem eigenen, stinkenden 20 Liter Kanister Diesel zu meinem Auto zu schleppen. Aber für diesen Gedanken sind unsere Hightech-Ingenieure aller eAuto-Produzenten vermutlich schlichtweg überqualifiziert.

        The reason this is better than Tesla is, one it's beautiful, two it's not a throwaway car like the tesla. Oh, it has real driving dynamics. Did I mention its actually beautiful, also built by a skilled manufacturer.

              Adding a Turbo will likely slow it down more and hurt its overall range.

                        Very beautiful car !
                        But you must learn to say Porsche correctly ! It is not Porsch ! There is an e at the end of the word !
                        Say it : Porr-chez !
                        Say it again and learn it !
                        cheers 😘🚀⭐️

                                      Some days Germany constructor from Porsche company visited the Kyrgyz Republic he was astonished by kyrgyz hunting dog especially by the name and translation of this name (as "catch up and kill" the taigun/taican/taykan translated from kyrgyz). And when Porsche Co was choosing the name to "kill" Tesla S electrocar for their new electrocar, they have chosen Taycan, Porsche Taycan. Porsche put a bit different letters in order do not break the authors right (taigun, taican, taykan), since the World got the car named Porsche Taycan ("catch up and kill" from kyrgyz). In Soviet time the germanium people lived in Kyrgyz Republic approximately 200 000 human, and nowadays approximately 20 000 human lives still.

And you're still sacraficing a lot of range for some extra peformance which isnt really that relevant in everyday driving. Tbf i wouldnt really buy either of these cars. Would rather go for a model 3 performance(without auto pilot) as its cheaper with comperable range and performance.
