Porsche Mission E concept becomes the Taycan road car

Recommended Posts

from the article:

 



Maximum range is forecast to more than 500 kilometers.

“Our new electric sports car is strong and dependable; it’s a vehicle that can consistently cover long distances and that epitomizes freedom,” said Oliver Blume, chairman of the executive board at Porsche AG.

 

less than 350 miles is NOT what I consider something capable of "consistently cover[ing] long distances" or that "epitomizes freedom."

 

Until a manufacturer comes out with something that is capable of actually doing long distance driving, then electric vehicles are simply not a viable option for those who actually depend on their vehicles...

 

It would be different if an electric vehicle could be charged and ready to go in the same two minutes or so that  it takes to fill a gas tank and go another 400-500 miles, but they are not even close.

12-15 years ago I drove from San Diego to San Francisco and back over a long weekend.  That was the last time I did a road trip > 300 miles each way in a personal vehicle.

 

While I enjoyed the experience once, I'm never driving to SF again.  300+ miles trips are why we have airplanes.

 

I drive an average of 25 miles a week, so I don't see the range on this Porsche being a limited factor for me.  Plus it's a gorgeous car.

TAD wants me to put the upcoming Tesla Roadster on my list as well (0-60 in under 2 seconds).  But that looks more like a mid-life crisis car.

300 each way fits a plane trip...but the 160 miles or so each way to units to see clients or to go to Austin from Houston (or vice versa) is NOT worthy of airport hassles or even doing it myself in a single-engine. 

 

Even the F-Type is pushing 20K miles and I have only had it since November...and was gone for the better part of a month.

I've re-read my posts and I don't see where I was trying to convince you that the car is perfect for you.
