In Majorca on Friday I watched a bit of a cycle race. There was a 'team' of 5 brand new Porshe Taycan electric cars with the race.
I am not really into cars but these really looked the business. Obviously very quiet but had no problem accelerating.
By coincidence, while at the dentist this morning I picked up a car magazine dated July '19 which featured that very car. Guide price £120K and already deposits paid on 60,000 of them:eek:......there are more rich people than I realised.
Own up.....who has one?

I expect that are a similar price and performance to a top of the range Tesla.
electric cars can be very fast when they want to be.

I am thinking of buying a 13 year old Cayman for £9k so not in their league or quite frankly their lofty environmental standards.

Interesting a friend was lent a Tesla 3 (I think) for a weekend, his wife didn't like it, she felt sick everytime they went out for a ride in it, we just joked it was his driving but recently a colleagues husband has just got an Jaguar I-Pace as his company car. I was relatting the sick story to her when she said that she was suffering the same in the I-Pace, a slight nausea each time she rode in it, wonder if it's the magnetic fields or just the change in vibrations, sound of an electric vehicle.

Performance cars just dont do it for me. When i've had pokey motors, you realise they're pointless on the congested roads of uk.
Although i'd like to try this leccy Porsche on a trackday.
