Seems to me a marketing faux pas unless they are targeting the brand faithful. It's also counter-intuitive.

Premium priced performance cars are bought for performance and it should at least match and better if it exceeds something already out there.

It’s a start and it’s more than most manufacturers are doing. I think it will be a contender in the future once they get the efficiency and range issues sorted out. It’s a sports car so the target audience will be a little more forgiving of those two issues. Tesla model P100D is still a 5 passenger luxury sedan with 600 km range built for long road trips. Tesla customers are expecting higher efficiency and range...which they get. Each have their own market. Porsche is around 50 grand more though. Even so my guess is they’ll sell lots.

There is more to performance than just going fast in a straight line.
The Model S is noted for having to reduce power because of battery over temping when driven flat out for any length of time. I bet the Porsche dosen’t.

Will be more interesting how Roadster 2 matches up on a road course.
Competition is good for everyone.

No it’s not. You are referring to the model P85 and P100. The model P100D plaid has never given those indications.

Plaid production model is expected to be released in July or August. They’ll be some distinct but minor body changes as well. Going to be more expensive to.

I’m willing to bet Porshe will release a new Taycan about the same time. Probably with a little more range for more appeal in North America.

I saw my first Taycan on the freeway the other day. Really good looking car. Model S shows it’s age in comparison. On the Taycan forum a buyer stated they have already updated software to allow Turbo model to go up to 255 mi range. They talked about a range mode that give full acceleration up to 70 mph then it stops.
Since Porsche doubled the first production run to 40k cars it seems they have a hit on their hands.

Fairly certain we saw one in SoCal recently. Sharp looking car. The next year will see some updates. Definetly a market.
