I came across this older video on YouTube and its one the best looks inside the Taycans cabin. Really impressed with just how complete this model was, even in early concept stage.

A lot of new concept vehicles seem to be showcasing this full dash length landscape display. I know newer EV's are attempting a minimalistic approach, but I do think that automakers should still be placing physical buttons as well. Overcomplicating simple controls like volume or air conditioning isn't necessary.

More and more new vehicles will opt for voice control technology, which should help to streamline controls of simple features like that. Just have a look at what Merc is doing with their new MBUX system and that's most likely the direction all automakers are heading in.

Compared to the new Panamera, with enough imagination, you can get a general idea of what a watered down production version of the Taycan's interior will be like. Ultimately it has to be more "techy" than the Panamera and that's already a major win in my books. EV's always get priority with design.

As with any Porsche the Taycan is merely another evolution in design. The company needs to retain well established styling cues (such as the steering wheel) while integrating brand new features for a very tech heavy platform. What sort of color options do we want to see for the interior?

Some sporty cues from the interiors of models like the 911 GT3 would be great but it'll be tough to integrate unless we see high performing Taycan's.

You might be asking for too much, remember these are two different breeds of Porsche. Lower end Porsche 911's should have more in common with the Taycan's design but as you move into GT territory... 911's become a whole different animal, they're no longer for the masses at that point and instead for a minority of Porsche customers

You're also comparing vehicles that are geared towards much different audiences. While the Taycan is going to have some incredible performance due to its electric powertrain, it hasn't specifically been designed for those with an interest in tracking their car as well.

To compete with brands like Audi, Mercedes and BMW, the Taycan will have to compete along those lines even though the details aren't clear right now.

The Taycan is going to be share its platform with competitors like the Audi E-Tron GT, so I would imagine that specs will be somewhat similar. Both BMW and Merc seem to be starting their EV portfolio with SUV's.
