  3. Porsche Rotwild e-Bike

    Off Topic Discussion
    It looks like Porsche could be making a production version of the electric bicycle that was seen in one of the Mission-E trailers. Based on these drawings it looks like they're going to partner with bicycle maket Rotwild (their name is on the swingarm). The frame looks different compared to...

  6. Taycan vs CyberTruck Reservations

    Porsche Taycan EV General Discussion Forum
    I'm still not convinced that Tesla actually has 250,000 reservations but that's just me being skeptical. But I am very impressed at the amount of orders Porsche is drawing in. It'll be interesting if all this range stuff has an impact or not on orders.
  7. How long is your daily commute?

    Porsche Taycan EV General Discussion Forum
    Mine's about 30 miles or so, but there's a lot of congestion on the way in which makes things even worse. 201 miles should cover that easily but for all the R&D Porsche is capable of they should've been able to get more range than this.
  8. 201 mile range for Taycan is a deal breaker

    Porsche Taycan EV General Discussion Forum
    I didn't catch that at first, that's sneaky for the AMCI numbers. Man I wish there was one standard for EV range so we wouldn't have to deal with all these different estimates.

  10. 201 mile range for Taycan is a deal breaker

    Porsche Taycan EV General Discussion Forum
    I'm starting to get confused with this whole thing because Porsche released testing numbers from AMCI and they claim that the Taycan Turbo can do 275 miles in "real-world city/highway commute driving, Normal Mode" So the EPA has 201 miles, WLTP has 279 miles and AMCI has 275 miles...

    2020+ Porsche Taycan News
    The range was so low that it forced Porsche to already to independent testing to prove the EPA findings wrong. They got testing done by AMCI and here's the results. They claim that the Taycan Turbo can do 275 miles in "real-world city/highway commute driving, Normal Mode"
