Hello fellow Porsche fans. I had a feeling that Tesla's days of dominating the EV segment were numbered and models like the Taycan confirm it. Pricing seems to be all over the place from various sources, but if they can deliver this at a price that's similar to the Model S then its a wrap.

Hey there. So long as Porsche is able to prevent any production mishaps, I agree that the Taycan is going to be a big disruptor for the segment. Early numbers are saying $85k, which is actually less than the entry level 90D.

Don't discount what we are going to see from Chinese brands like GAC, Nio or Byton. Although they may struggle for traction initially, odds are that this is where the cheapest premium entry level EV will come from. I expect that many new brands will fall by the wayside however, as we've seen with Faraday Future.

I think Chinese EV comes are going to have a tough time taking market share away from the segment leaders in NA. Even if they do provide cheaper alternatives, buyers are going to skeptical of their build quality and long term reliability.

I would have a look at some of the concept cars from NIO and keep in mind that they filed for a $1.8 billion IPO. Like Tesla they are still struggling to be profitable, but at the moment they are only selling in their home market.
