Soon we'll the production Taycan in its entirety, while we wait these latest test mule pictures show a lot. Using your imagination, its not hard to connect the dots between the "Mission E" concept and this spied version especially to those serious about getting one.
As for where I stand, design is where it needs to be. any questions related to performance have yet to be answered and will determine whether I buy.

Those are some massive performance brakes, like the yellow accent color too. I actually don't mind the look of those aero wheels either, though I wonder what kind of difference they make with regards to range/efficiency. Still sporting those fake exhaust ports I see.

If the performance estimates are true from base to higher ends then it'll be easy to see why brakes need to be as big as they are.
What will be weird for an EV but cool at the same time are optional carbon ceramic brakes. I've always been a fan of them and think it can be done here. No definite info provided yet but its bound to happen.

The yellow callipers are Porsche Carbon Ceramic Brakes (PCCB). There were some other photos with silver callipers which could well be the Tungsten Carbide PSCB brakes which came out as an option with the updated Cayenne

I hope they come painted in green or something that reflects the fact these are electric cars much like what existing hybrid Porsche's feature.

I would expect the standard steel brakes could well come with the acid green colour that the e-hybrid cars use, but the PCCB's in yellow are a signature and would expect them to remain that colour

Newer EV's don't need to rely on those blue/green accents to indicate that a car is electric anymore. Since that's been a staple of their hybrids, they may move away from that color scheme with their fully electric models. They've been pretty quiet about the regen capability of the Taycan, but I would guess it has various levels of resistance. Should help them last longer as well.

I guess at some point the overall design of these new EV's rules out those special treatments.

Still I think it would be cool to have some of those unique accents, they're unlike anything i've seen from Porsche and this is one of the few opportunities we can have it again.
