In a recent roundtable with Porsche Indonesia and Mayk Wienkötter (Porsche AG, Spokesperson Product Line Taycan & E-Mobility) we learned that the J1 platform used by Porsche for the Porsche Taycan is shared with its sister company, Audi.
Porsche has taken the J1 platform and evolved it into the PPE (Premium Platform Electric) that will be used for the new all-electric Porsche Macan.
The J1 platform is used by Audi in the Audi e-tron GT concept which you probably saw Tony Stark driving in Avengers: Endgame. Reports say that the production version of the Audi e-tron GT might just be ready for 2021.
The almost production ready Audi e-tron GT has been spotted doing some tests. The details we have are only referenced from the Audi e-tron GT concept from last year.
Referring the details of the concept version of the e-tron GT, the performance figures of the e-tron GT seem rather modest in comparison to the Porsche Taycan Turbo S.
Dimension-wise, both cars are pretty much identical with a 2.9m wheelbase, 1.38 m height, 4.96 m length, and 1.96 m width.
Since the Porsche Taycan has been said to “earn the Porsche badge”, we’re curious how the Audi e-tron GT will “earn the Audi badge” while sharing the same J1 platform with the Taycan.
Will the Audi e-tron GT and Porsche Taycan be another Audi RSQ8 and Lamborghini Urus?
