Nice. Must be amazing. Motorweek reviewed the “turbo” recently and they loved it. $200K??? Nah, closer to only $190K. Maybe i can wait and get a used one when it drops to only $130K. Haha again.

2 things....
1: At this kinda $$, I would go big and get the Tesla Roadster. Far more performance. And Teslas are cool...
2: There are 4 kids I want to have the opportunity to go to college. I would prefer that to any car. My nephew died leaving his wife with 2 sets of twin girls.

While the Porsche and Tesla are incredible, there are better things to do with money in my opinion.

Plus, for $60K you can get a Tesla Model 3 Performance that is, for me anyway, a better car than the Taycan Turbo.
Our medium range Model 3 is plenty fun.
From about 25 mph the Taycan and I hit it... His car is faster, of course, but both are similar in that the speed is instant and linear.

I wish I had a side shot of that car... There is no doubt it is something really special.
How special? Bill Gates bought one I understand.

Beanie caps, young and sitting low.
But that kid knew how to drive that car, I can tell you that.

I’m not a fan of the lines from the rear.

Well, you can add a sound option that plays through the radio...

There are 3 Taycans I believe. 4S, Turbo and Turbo S.
4S is entry level.

But you are right, there is no turbo.
Which model are you ordering?

That's the part of the car most people will see.
For those who understand EVs, the side view with the large charge port is stunning, especially upon acceleration.
Blink and it's gone.

Interestingly, this pic shows just how good the Model 3 visibility is with the sloping hood.
The Tesla Model 3 is an amazing performance car in any trim.

Me? It would be less about income and more about expenses. If everything I have now was 100% paid off, I'd say $200K a year would easily put me in it, if I wanted one.
