Thought this would be great to post for anyone interested in placing a pre-order since that is possible with the current Taycan Deposit Program for US residents as far as I know. This first drive review came out right around when Porsche executives gave us some insight on its driving characteristics. Keep in mind this is just the concept, hence it called the Mission E and not Taycan as revealed recently.

This is one of the most polished and complete concepts that I think I've ever seen. Really love that full glass panel roof. Fingers crossed that the Taycan is far more accessible than what we are seeing with Tesla.

The only concern I have is them being able to keep up with battery production. We've seen that this has already been an area of struggle for the upcoming E-Tron.

That the same issue that all EV manufacturers face and its the reason why we are seeing partnerships with some of the biggest battery providers. I know there are some independent companies that are currently making efforts to remove some of the rare minerals required to produce these packs.

I like to think that if governments want car makers to abide by aggressive regulations that government money will soon flow to some aspect of the industry and so far the German government has done that.
As long as there's continued interested into boosting production from angles like this, i wouldn't be too worried.

Realized for myself that Europe and Australia are where this is happening the most and not so much elsewhere. Already the Aussie gov't put up $6 Million into charging networks.

I don't think that automakers should continue to rely on subsidies from the government in an effort to push EV's. With the billion dollar investments that we are seeing across the industry, they should have the ability to rapid evolve the tech and the kinds of materials that are required for production.
