    I follow several EV car YouTube channels that some I automatically put on 2x speed because the narrators suffer 'verbal diarreha' . . . 90% fluff and 10% content. I need facts and data, not someone trying to do my thinking for me. This is the best Taycan review so far:


    IMHO, a nice Gen-1 car, I'd wait for the 2nd or 3d year model.

    At 6'-5", I couldn't help but notice the guy who's testing is 6'-2" & his head was already touching the roof line - commenting it was a bit cramped for head room. Equally surprising? Only a 4-seater? At least the only cramped seats in the Model S, are limited to the 7-seat version with its last two seats in the back. Rev 2 will likely be better, and by then - VW-Porsche may at least have a mediocre amount of high speed nationwide charging infrastructure.
    Wish them all the best ...

    I always figured 'full accelerator' meant all of the ponies.
