Model S more legroom, boot space, tech, less maintenance, more range and better efficiency, charging network. Cue the fit and finish comments those who pass on Tesla feel they’re also too common they want to be more exclusive.

@Emilios Powerballer did you se that the urus is in fact a cayenne&rsq8 based ?? engine from the panamera and chasi from the rsq8, rear axel from the benteyga, and they are working in some electric 4 door sedan (probably a redesigned Estoque.) , working probably in the taycan bases, and of course the succesor of the aventador is going to be so similar to the sian (svj with electric delivery.) Probably another electric two door gt (Asterion or something similar) so now you know some of the future of lamborghini.

@Coach Actually Porsche already owns 10% of Rimac. But im not really interested in what Porsche does. Porsches reputation is the 911 and its main income source its SUV. Im more interested in where Lamborghini will end up next. Its clear that the Porsche family cares more about money than anything else

True, but the Taycan tries to have this old 911 heritage feel to it, it’s like being in a true drivers car rather than a luxury GT.

I'd personally take the Taycan based on the looks (the thing I can compare from outside). Driven the Taycan 4S and was mesmerized by the performance and steering feel, but have to try out the eTron. Doubt it will better the Taycan's experience though I rarely see well spec'd Taycans for my taste however, I feel like the Audi is easier to get it right w/o splashing so much cash on extras

The Taycan had blocked vents behind the front wheels because the car had the optional Electric Charging Port Doors. If manual then vents are real. Also the hump in the center of back floor is for batteries removed from the foot garages.

The Audi looks like they hired three design teams, who produced three designs, and Audi couldn't decide, so they just went with all three designs, putting them one over the other. It is extremely ugly. The side-on profile of the Taycan is its weakest aspect, and it still looks better than the three-in-one-Audi!

@Todestuete well tbh the E-tron is the better daily car, as Matt pointed out, for one. Two, by different I meant breaking the trend of just buying the Porsche cause it has a Porsche logo on it. Obviously, you’re free to do as you please but choosing the Porsche is going with the flow just because most people would choose it simply because it’s a Porsche, even if it’s a worse car in every single other metric (not saying it is).

When Audi first announced the e-tron GT and showed some pictures, it was a bit of a _"WOW"_ moment. Similar to when you're in a bar and a stunning girl comes in. All the blokes sit up and have to look with jaws dropping. But now, it seems to have been "Dulled down" by Audi. I'm not saying it's bad looking, It's not. it's good looking, but it's just a bit "Meh!" now. Which is a damn shame.

Porsche has taken the electric car wold by storm with its Taycan, a vehicle that is almost unanimously praised by anybody who drives it. But now there’s an alternative to the Taycan, from fellow VW group brand Audi that has created its own vehicle based on the same underpinnings - the E-Tron GT.
