Got a burning car question? Ask me, Erin (I'm taking over Twitter today), below
Totally agree with you! It’s going to be very exciting seeing the Porsche Taycan! But one thing Tesla still has an advantage on is their models were built with only electric in mind whereas ”normal” car manufacturers use the same base as hybrid or combistion engine base.
You're off your head. What about a Tesla or Porsche Taycan? Or Polestar 2? The new electric 208 looks great! I have a Golf GTE which is Hybrid but has the same styling as a GTI.
Greetings from our German design team. Did a contest last year. Best current car design in categories:V8 : AMG GTC or GTRHybrid: Porsche 918 SpyderElectric: Porsche Taycan Porsche Targa design is a favorite here as well, together with the 70th birthday 911 concept.
Evolution of the GT: Polestar 1 vs AMG GT63 vs Porsche TaycanDoes the 630bhp 4.0-litre turbocharged V8 Mercedes win, or the half way house Polestar hybrid or the fully electric Porsche?
Are there any much cheaper electric or hybrid sports cars due for release soon? All the current ones are very very expensive, e.g. BMW i8, Porsche Taycan. Something MX-5 money would be great.
When I say that I’m excited to see a “real” marque start taking on Tesla, this is why.I get that YOU want something that’s disruptive and unique.I want something I can rely on. And get parts for. And get serviced.
The answer is yes. In fact not only all Battery electric cars, which in all cases that I know about except the Porsche Taycan, have their motors directly connected to the wheels through a single speed gear ratio to the differential, and in the rare case where a hub motor system is used, the hub motor must turn backwards to reverse as there are no gears of any sort. The older Prius hybrid I have also has no ability to change any gears. The two electric motor/generators it has are permanently in gear with the IC engine it has. With this setup, one electric motor turns in a planetary gear set with the other and the engine. It has to reverse electrically since the engine, which can only turn one way has no reverse gear to use.
Well, we don’t know yet ,for sure. ,There won’t be any reviews and customer cars to test for another couple of months. The Porsche Taycan in Turbo S spec However, there are a couple things to note that point to it being really good: It’s a Porsche Porsche’s entries into new segments have historically been very good. Even the much-maligned Cayenne was and still is one of the sharpest large SUVs on the market to the point of its platform being “toned down” and put in VW Touaregs, Q7s and Bentley Bentaygas. The same goes for the Macan. While often claimed to be just a fancy Audi Q5 (it does indeed share the platform), it’s just about the most agile SUVs out there even in base trim. This lets us surmise that the Taycan will also handle itself very competently in corners and racetracks, more so than its closest competitor, the Model S (which is not a knock on the Tesla). The “mechanical” competence of Porsche The Tesla Model S, X and 3 are undoubtedly very fast in a straight line and not at all shabby for their weight in corners. However, repeated hard accelerations or race track use will quickly result in limited power output due to heat issues. Again, the Tesla is not primarily designed for that, but the Porsche will be better in those regards. Porsche has extensive experience with battery systems and the like on racetracks (remember, the 919 was a hybrid) and was able to get at least one hot lap of the Nurburgring out of the production spec Taycan, a feat the Tesla’s are not able to reproduce as of now. So when Porsche tells us that the Taycan will handle repeated hard accelerations with no issue, I tend to believe them. Porsche quality, fit & finish Something that has always plagued Tesla is their quality. Both their continuing various issues with the Model 3, the interior quality and durability (not design!), panel alignment and other issues relating to fit and finish are rather unbecoming of their price tags. Porsche on the other hand is know for an incredibly high quality. Given the picture of the Taycan interior and Porsche’s Reputation regarding quality, it’s very likely that the Taycan will be of much higher interior quality and have next to no issues regarding things like paint or panel alignment. Summary All in all, we won’t know if the Taycan is any good until Journalist and owners get to test it. However, Porsche’s reputation and previous models strongly suggest that the Taycan will be on par with Tesla and might even surpass them in certain areas. Most likely, it will be very good!
For me, I prefer old school manual shift cars as opposed to hybrids or electrics. So the Speedster would be my choice. Numbers on a page are great, and progressive, futuristic cars are great. But for involvement - a stick shift and a responsive engine and chassis is pure heaven.
Does Tesla's Roadster justify its $200,000 base price? , Absolutely. Any car that has ,similar performances, (Bugatti, Koenigsegg etc.), even an electric one like Rimac has a price that is about ten times higher. On the other hand, it leaves in the dust any sports car of a ,similar price, like Porsche, Ferrari or Lamborghini. When it comes to cars we all like pictures. I think this one explains my point the best. Source: Cleantechnica. Edit July 2019:, Recent rumours are saying that this 0–60 time will be achievable only with the $50k SpaceX upgrade (rocket boosters). ,Without them the base model will make this 0–60 in “only” 2,1 second., OK. I can live with that. Both times are insanely small. Edit September 2019:, Just recently Porsche unveiled its fully electric top-spec Taycan Turbo S (I know, a silly name, an electric car with “Turbo” in its name). ,Porsche Taycan - Wikipedia, Specs: 93,4 kWh battery, 560 kW motors. 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in 2,8 seconds. Top speed: 262 km/h (163 mph).. Range: 388–412 km (241–256 miles) - WLTP ,Porsche Taycan Turbo S Gets Low 192-Mile Range From EPA, Very decent sports car performance numbers, but the ,base price, (without any additional options) is $185.000. Edit December 2019:, Tesla’s competitors keep making my case to an almost laughable extent. ,Electric Corvette prototype breaks top speed record at 211.8 mph (340.85 km/h) - Electrek, OK, it’s a nice number, but this performance comes at a cost: a range of only “above 175 miles”. And it will have a 7 or 8 gear transmission - which is a laughable feature to anybody who knows how electric motors work. I’t shows wasteful nostalgia, lack of knowledge, hauling around dead weight or simply skipping the investment in a gearbox that might make sense - 3rd gear and the top gear. Everything else is just wasted money. ,The announced price is around $750,000 and the planned production is - 75 cars., In normal language - ,Genovation already knows that this car won’t sell. Edit January 2020:, Another competitor which proves my case: ,Drako GTE electric supercar gets benchmarked against Tesla Model S P100D - Electrek, Based on Fisker Karma, the design predecessor / competitor of Tesla Model S, it is quicker than the Model S Performance. With a 90 kWh battery and four permanent magnet hybrid synchronous 225 kW motors (about 1200 HP), it is of course a quarter mile champion - and has a top speed of 206 mph. Don’t ask me about its range, but I am guessing roughly half of the Model S, let alone the Roadster. So on a 1/4 mile it might be neck on neck with the Roadster, maybe even having a slight advantage because of lower weight, but in any other aspect (top speed, range) it will be left in the dust. ,Drako says that it plans to make only 25 units with a ,$1.25 million, base price., Yeah. You already know the specs of the Roadster 2. Now I am asking you: ,are $200.000 justified? , The better question should be - ,why will Tesla sell the Roadster so cheaply?
If you have one of these, nothing will happen: Tesla, Audi Etron, Kia Nero EV, Hyundai Kona Electric, Chevy Bolt EV, Nissan Leaf, VW EGolf, Jaguar I-Pace, Aston Martin RapidE, Porsche Mission E, Mercedes Benz EQ, BMW i3, BMW i8, Ford Focus Electric, Ford Fusion Energi, Ford Transit Connect EV, Smart Fortwo, Porsche Taycan, Karma Revero, 2019 BMW i8 Roadster. If you have any of a large number of Hybrid or PZEV cars, you might eventually die, but it will take a long time and be pretty inconvenient, it depends how leaky your garage is for air. If you have a classic muscle car that’s more than 50 years old, it won’t take long, especially if you rev it.
Short answer: Many. Other automakers MUST rival Tesla or die. They either must create compelling vehicles (Porsche Taycan), better features (Rivian, Bollinger) or better pricing (Nissan, VW). The difficulty is that they really aren’t competing against Tesla at this point. ICE car makers are fighting against regulations - many countries are phasing out the use of ICE either through emissions controls or outright bans on future sales. Established brands are fighting themselves - they have to not only convert to EV’s, but convince their own customer base to convert - hard to do when you have sold them a line that their current car is “perfect”. Legacy - parts, workers, supply lines all take years to revamp. Can traditional automakers make the conversion quickly enough? Most will try to milk their traditional methods for as long as possible, mostly by releasing hybrids. The biggest legacy is dealerships which do not want to sell EV’s. Regulatory blocks. Dealerships are preventing startups like Rivian from following Tesla in the direct sales model. All the EV startups will face such regulatory hurdles that Tesla has already crossed. So everyone is proposing new models (Ford Mustang Mach E) or soon to release EV’s (Rivian) that might rival Tesla. The proof is in the pudding and once production vehicles are available to go head to head, then a real comparison can be done.
Why can't some electric car enthusiasts accept that the inability for electric cars to fully recharge in 5 minutes is a deal breaker for some people since every gasoline car ever made can do that? First I wanted to make only a comment, but then I decided to make it as a separate answer. If we start by ,comparing ICE cars and EVs,, let's start with well made EVs with ,a good charging network: ,Tesla,., Let's put other EVs that have some compromises aside for this moment, otherwise we are mixing apples with oranges. OK, there are a few places on the Earth where civilization hasn't reached yet. No electricity and no gas station hundreds of kilometers (or miles). You put a few cans in the boot and you are well. Let's say 1% of drivers have these needs. No problem, they need an ICE car. Then there are some people who drive over 800 km (500 miles) almost every day and they live on a really tight schedule. Every minute costs money, they only have the time to pee and they live on sandwiches. I get it. They need a hybrid or a plugin-hybrid, could be an ICE too. They are a few percent more. But the rest forms the 95%,. No, they don't have a problem with an EV. They may have a slight annoyance here and there, but that's about it. Where ,they think they have a problem, or they actually have one is ,the charging infrastructure. A Tesla has a range of (realistic) 400 km (250 miles), give or take, depending on model, and then it has to charge about 40 minutes. Well, ,that's during a lunch,. If the user drives shorter legs, each charging stops can be even a lot shorter, some 15-20 minutes. That’s a coffee and toilet stop. But I won't say it is perfect, but EVs are not at the end of development, bigger batteries are coming, longer ranges and faster charging. The coming Porsche Taycan will supposedly have the same range as a Tesla, but charge in less than 20 minutes, and knowing as much as I know, I think this is realistic. Now tell me that you don't need a 20 minutes break after driving some 400 km (250 miles)? If you don't, you are either a robot - or a pretty unsafe driver. Tesla Roadster 2 should have a range of 1000 km. Even if it is only 800 km (500 miles), you won't even need to charge it and if you do, you can add a small top-up while you take a leak. The whole thing where I see the problem is that people think they will charge as they are going now to the petrol station. Well, they don't need to ,unless, they cannot charge while the EV is standing still somewhere. Yes, this is a very valid argument, but once again this is not the problem of EVs themselves, it is the lacking infrastructure. Do we agree? Making simple AC chargers is not difficult, you need a box and a socket, you connect it to the grid and that's about it, and they are relatively cheap. Every EV has a built-in charger. Yes, it is slow, but it has time the whole night or during the day when the car is standing still. You can make those in the most remote areas with a very basic power supply (230V 32A is great, but it goes even below that, just slower). Maybe a big battery won't be full in one night, maybe it will need two, but probably you won’t need a full battery on two consecutive days and if you actually do, you can rapid-charge somewhere during the trip. On the other hand, making DC rapid chargers that charge the car in 1 hour or even less? They cost on average 12-25 thousand (with a broad range depending on brand, speed, versatility etc.) and they need a power supply of a small apartment building (depending on brand and model from 50 to 350 kW per charger), but this isn't rocket science either. Ask your local electrician. But no, you don’t need one at home, it is at the charging station. You may have objections to EVs due some current restrictions, in most cases with the lack of local charging infrastructure, but in general they are a good solution for almost everyone (you remember, over 95%). And yes, I will agree, almost - there may be some cases where they are not, but you will really have to push it to find examples that are limited by technology, not by lack of charging infrastructure. OK, and finally - there are some EVs that are not as good as Teslas. They have smaller batteries, shorter range, charge slower etc. - but they also cost less. Well, a) it is a new industry and b) not every car is a Lexus or a BMW. There are differences, OK? And some newer ones are actually pretty competitive to Tesla, I'd say Chevrolet Bolt and Hyundai Kona. Yes, both are smaller, but their EV performance is quite comparable to the coming Tesla Model 3 50 kWh $35k standard. But I said comparable, not the same. Note,, December 2020, I will leave the answer as it was originally written in July 2018 since some comments relate to it. Changes would mess it up a bit, but, in essence the answer still stands the test of time over well over two years. The major difference is - the Tesla Model 3 charges since 2019 significantly faster, the top-up times between chargers are mostly about 15–20 minutes. With the Long Range battery, a charging session of 30–35 minutes during a lunch may actually allow to skip one charger. You can make a simulation with this free tool: ,A Better Routeplanner
Yes, they can be. Some home built EVs put an electric motor where the piston engine used to be, and feed the output of the electric motor into the manual transmission. From what I have read, the builders of those vehicle soon discover that shifting gears is pointless, and counterproductive. They put the car in one of the upper gears and just leave it there, and never use the clutch or shifter again, The only purpose built mass produced EV with more than one gear is the Porsche Taycan, and it has two gears which switch automatically. All other EVs use a single fixed gear ratio, and therefore never shift at all, manually or automatically.
Chevy Bolt is solid— the second best EV choice for most people among affordable options. There’s also the Nissan Leaf, which is shorter range, the Jaguar I-pace, and the Porsche Taycan at the high end— more than even Tesla I also love my Volt, which is a plug-in hybrid — best of both worlds, but are no longer being made.
The “big” companies already have electric vehicles or hybrids, and NONE of them are doing better than Tesla. GM had the Volt (they ended it) and the Bolt (if you can find a dealer to sell you one.) Nissan has the Leaf, which is arguably the second best selling BEV, but still a fraction of Tesla. Toyota has the Prius, which opened up the hybrid market, and was the big, big seller for a couple of years. Now, it’s the number one trade-in on a Tesla. BMW has the i3, and there are a few others, but nothing yet on the market competes with Tesla. The closest will by the Porsche Taycan, which will kind of competes with the Model S but at a similar price point, and no developed charger network. But then again, it may be another year before they deliver in volume.
