Not sure where you are getting 105kwh, everything I've seen has said 90kwh. Also the 15min charge for 248miles is a guess based on a guess, and extrapolated.
They have said peak 60+ miles for a 4 min charge. so you based on your entire charge speed on that number? Come on man, there's no need to inflate numbers to try and make Porsche look better.
If you have sources, list them please. Thanks!

I thought it was 90 kwh as well but then I read this
https://www.automobilemag.com/news/audi-e-tron-vs-porsche-taycan-cross-turismo-vs-mercedes-benz-eqc-luxury-ev-suvs/

That's just the prototype, but I guess there is no actual Taycan yet, so it's possible.


Numerous articles quote the 248 mile recharge in just 15 minutes, including Cars.com a pretty reliable source:

CEO Oliver Blume said the Taycan will be able to recharge 250 miles in less than 20 minutes.

The latest Automobile mag says 80kWh for base, 96kWh for S and turbo. Initial charge rates at 250kW, 350kW won't be till 2021 at the latest. No mention of range though...

Just updated this with the new info about the tires. 305/30/21s in the rear. Those are HUGE... as wide as what's on a Lamborghini Huracan!
