Not very informative, lot of things stated as “normal” for EVs that simply are not, they are normal for Teslas. No you should NOT have to replace 7 door handles in 5 years, no your should NOT have to regularly and preemptively replace your 12v battery, no your main screen should NOT delaminates as “normal,” no your badly designed MCU should not wear out incorrectly specified flash memory chips that run out of life cycles in a few years (that is just amateur engineering for a vehicle). And NO and plugged in EV is not a happy EV because “advanced” battery management. It is there because Tesla never controls phantom drain and your car will brick itself if you don’t plug it in. I have never seen that in any other EV.

Tesla is the Windows of cars, it normalizes insane things.

New insight here on how Tesla operates but you won't find anything new on the Plaid Model S

A well known EV youtube channel posted a video breaking down where the Taycan should sit among its competition once released and the result was, below Tesla Model S. The main argument being value and I side with him on that point. Also like mentioned, we'll have to wait for the big event in Sept for more details.

I'm not only after value, so don't think i'll jump ship to Tesla.

Snipped some comparison charts from the video are included after the video.

How will the Porsche Taycan stack up to the Model S?

That's possible.

Early reports like it aren't the most accurate, but at least a starting point for us to provide actual numbers and confirmation

In other news, Tesla ranks the WORST in a J.D. Power Study, the Model S turns 8-years old (hbd) and the Model S 2020.24.6 software update gives it even faster charging. I wonder what we can expect from Porsche with Taycan software updates?
