Taycan vs Model S

Gonna be fun.
Heck, our Model 3 was expensive enough. Sheesh.

The Taycan is gorgeous. The Model 3 has been around for awhile...
Model 3 needs a refresh. Over 400 mile range... A $185K Porsche killer!
Nice to see some competition.

Tesla is junk. Porsche knows how to actually build a car. Elon has had more time to figure out how to do the electric drive part, but Porsche has decades on figuring out how not to make a junk vehicle. Hard pass on both vehicles, from me, for the time being, but in 5 years? Well, I bet Porsche figures out EV way sooner than Elon figures out how to make a car.

Not sure where the junk part comes from. The Tesla sale numbers are obliterating everything in the luxury market. I would think these people that moved from Mercedes, Jaguars, BMWs etc. would would not put up with junk simply to drive electric. There is lots of room for improvement for sure though.

At least the Porsche driver isn't locked for hours out because some flaky apps goes down. Nuff said IMO.

+1, well said. The Taycan is very expensive, I'll wait a few years, I think Porsche will bring the price down a bit.

They do have some reliability concerns. But they are far from junk. I absolutely love driving them.

The Tesla Model S is an American made 5 adult passenger, large luxury sedan. The fact that it performs so well is, quite frankly, amazing. Takes a dedicated race car to beat it, that's for sure.

Around people I know, it seems like anyone younger than 45 wants a Tesla and older than 45 wants a Porsche.

So the drop dead gorgeous Taycan loses to a 2013 Model S Performance in most categories.
As Ws6 points out, Porsche has been building cars for a loooong time.

I do hand it to the Taycan to give the Tesla some competition.
Porsche is only 700,000 cars behind.

Not only American made, but operate in California no less and they export in a big way.

I want to like the Porsche but the VW group needs to put up or shut up on this especially after the etron backslide on range, efficiency and charging.

Without a charging network it risks becoming nothing more than a short trip toy.

VW group is a long way out from delivering on its promises.
