Very interesting video.

I think what I find most fascinating is that you get a good idea of the size of the car. Seems a lot smaller than I expected. It's both shorter and lower than the Panamera.

Hopefully less wide too! My parking space at a highrise condo building is 88 inches (224cm) wide With a concrete wall on one side and a concrete column on the other. The Mission E was 78.3 inches (199 cm) and Panamera is 76 inches (193cm) but 85 with mirrors!!. So I can expect the taycan to be about 87 inches wide with mirrors, give me about 1 inch clearance (2.54cm) to half inch on each side (1.25 cm) on each side!!!!!! Guess I would have to pull in and out without mirrors! with 5 inch (12.7cm) clearance on each side, virtually NO room for error! Hope Porsche has a good automatic parking option! (Tesla said system needs a least 8" clearance on each side for automatic parking to work, but I have not had that tested and did research that on Tesla you can adjust the minimum clearance distance).

It is VERY difficult to park with two concrete barriers and a narrow drive, so I have to make a 90 degree turn into the space and requires a 3 point turn with our Boxster and Acura MDX to enter our parking spot.

A shorter wide look on the Taycan actually, in my opinion will make a better looking car than the Panamera.

What are the chances we'll get rear wheel steer to make the Taycan more liveable? After all Porsche offers it elsewhere and the Taycan's demo justifies it.

It will get rear wheel steering. That's for sure. I think I've read that now in several reports.

I remember the first time I tried it on a 911, amazing technology!
