      Very capable car, but is that range enough for you? 👇👇👇

      1. Cyber Slim

        @Alexander Miller All this paid social media fanboy garbage by the T junk company talking about products which don't exist ist nothing but junk, like all the T cars coming out of their factories.

      2. Cyber Slim

        @SpaghettiKillah T-junk is vaporware. My Taycan gets 300 miles, the range he got with race driving style testing is nonsense! My MS90D is piece of junk, my Taycan is by far the best car I've ever owned.

      3. Perodua Kelisa

        @Tim Murphy yea exactly lol. 0-60 in 4 seconds is enough. Did you read my comment? Click read more

      4. Tim Murphy

        @Perodua Kelisa So, essentially, you get to really enjoy the first 2.1 seconds of your drive and after that what? What about 60-100? What about cornering, general handling etc? Can you keep that kind of driving going? We're not all into drag racing.

      5. Perodua Kelisa

        @SpaghettiKillahIf you wanna talk stats, the Tesla will likely do 0 - 60 in ~2.1 seconds without rollout. The current taycan turbo S does 0 - 60 in 2.4. Won't be surprised if the next one is quicker, if not faster than the Tesla. We are talking a similar 0 - 60 here, within 0.2 of a second. Anyway, that's not what Porsche is about. Porsche is about the driving experience; that's where the money goes. Chassis development, handling, driving position, etc. In that respect, the Porsche is better by a long shot. If you wanna show off to your mates that your tesla does 0-60 in 2 seconds, great. But you won't be having as much fun driving it as you would if it were a Porsche. 0- 60 is irrelevant, actually. Every nerd who doesn't know the slightest thing about cars thinks that 0 - 60 is the prime measurement. There is no real way you can measure how fun a car is. A rav4 prime does 0 - 60 faster than a BRZ. But the BRZ is a way way way more enjoyable drive. If you can't test drive them, listen to what reviewers say. And get a good mix of different ones; don't get stuck in the tesla fanboy world. And for that kind of car, range isn't a huge deal. The only reason the Tesla is longer range is that it has a massive heavy battery which makes it handle worse. Porsche could have easily stuffed a bigger one in but they didn't, because it hurts the handling. Saying the Tesla is leagues ahead because of its range is like saying an ICE car is leagues ahead because it has a bigger fuel tank. At this price point, it's about a compromise between handling and range. Its not about pure speed, its about driving enjoyment and the experience of owning a well-made high-quality car. If you don't care about that, you shouldn't be spending $150,000 on a car. PS buy a base taycan for 50 grand less than a model S. You'll have the best handling EV out there, and one of the most enjoyable drives. Driving a car closer to its limit is more fun.

      Not practical? That’s completely subjective…and his FIRST reasoning is that the boot is a similar size to a focus? Yeah definitely 2 cars you’d compare haha clueless

    4. SaenzFonsi

      I feel that an electrical car with combustion engine assist cars are in a different class. I just want to see the mechanics try to fix this one. You have to be an Electrical Engineer with a substantial knowledge in BDLC motors and a great deal of knowledge in Close Loop Control Systems to even begin to diagnose when something goes wrong. Point is, a lot of things have to synchronize to make this car work really well. Knowing how semiconductors work, now you are adding the manufacturing 6 sigma into the mix. Nope, yeah, it might be fast, it might be beautiful, I might be the best, but I want no part of one. Not even racing against them! but then again, that is just me.

      Do not only hope on government for your income, as an individual try to look out for different streams of income in order to be financially independent. Always save the little you can and think of what to do with It when it becomes capital. Government has failed us, so lets not fail ourselves. Take a chance on yourself and invest in yourself

      According to a report by Agenzia ANSA of Italy on May 18, 2021. The company "FIH" (Foxconn Int'l Holding Co.), and the fourth largest multinational automobile group in the world "Stellantis" signed a memorandum of cooperation to invest in the joint venture company “Mobile Drive”, with 50% of each party's shareholding. Headquartered in the Netherlands, the Mobile Drive's corporate goal is to integrate the different industrial advantages of the two parties, thereby shortening the development time, and providing electric vehicle drivers with a new experience through the latest technology HMI human-machine interface. FIH’s mother company is the Taiwan-base Honhai/Foxconn Group who is worldwide largest multinational ICT (Information and Communication Technology) manufacturing company with revenue of 190 billion US dollars in 2020. Stellantis is consisting of Fiat Chrysler (Fiat Chrysler) and French Peugeot Citroen (Peugeot Citroen), and each party holds 50% of the shares. It announced the merger in December 2019 and completed its operations in January 2020. From two groups, Stellantis has a total of 18 automotive brands including Peugeot, Citroën, Opel, Vauxhall, DS, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Chrysler, Dodge, Maserati, Lancia, Jeep, RAM etc. That mak it to be the fourth largest automobile group globally. The company has 400,000 employees, has operations in more than 130 countries, and has manufacturing plants in 30 countries. The group plans to launch 39 electric vehicles by the end of 2021. www.stellantis.com/en www.foxconn.com/en-us/about/group-profile www.stellantis.com/en/news/recent-events/mobile_drive_joint_venture decameras.info/block/knyibIalrrDOe4k/video.html Foxconn (Taiwan name is Honhai) is a Taiwanese company having its headquarter in Taiwan, and it’s a public company listed on Taiwan Stock Market. Foxconn is worldwide largest multinational ICT (Information, Computing, Telecommunication) manufacturing company with revenue of 190 billion US dollars in 2020. It’s subsidiaries includes Japanese company Sharp and the worldwide number two LCD Screen Manufacturer “Innolux”. Honhai/Foxconn have manufacturing plants in Taiwan (for Information Security Products), China (consumer electronics), India, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, US, Mexico, Brazil, Europe. The famous products it manufactures such as iPhone, iPad, iMac, Sony’s devices (PlayStation), Xbox, Google’s devices, Amazon devices, Telecom products for Cisco, Nokia, Ericsson, Satellite Receivers, and Infotainment System for global Automobile Companies. Owing to the US-China trade war & tech war, Foxconn has to gradually move most of its ICT manufacturing plants back to Taiwan, South Asia and India, and make down-size of its operation in China.

      I'm conflicted. On the one hand calling an EV car 'turbo' is terribly lame. On the other, the 2:40 tickle-tickle option, especially if completed with the customizable sound effects option, is spot on! I can't wait to meet my mates with one of these at Itasha!!!

      You will still burn fossil fuels since most electricity is made by burning them. That was the point to begin with. But no one listened.

      1. Louie

        @Chukonu5 it’s also cheaper to buy green electricity

      2. Chukonu5

        But producing electricity using fossil fuels at scale in an electrical power plant is much more efficient than burning fossil fuels in your tiny combustion engine.

    33. Luiz Gustavo

      Why is Top Gear talking about miles ? We need Kph please

    34. Dave Dee

      I hate when presenters talk about how much time for a full charge at home from dead to full. While 9 hours is reasonable for overnight, it still sounds long. It is extremely rare to get home with zero miles left and to need a 100% full charge. Most often, you’ll get home with more than 50% charge and don’t need 100%. I would guess that most people would need to charge for less than 2 hours a night at home to top up. Even a 120V outlet can work for a lot of people.

      1. Green Drive India

        Yes, reviews like this is the reason EVs are still not outselling ICE.

    55. Thorbjørn Brodersen

      That whole “but it doesn’t have a turbo” talk is getting a bit old. The difference between a 911 and a 911 turbo isn’t a “turbo” anymore either.

    56. Dan Grassetti

      only 140k? Such a value. And you can get a home level 2 charger as an extra cost option. Are they serious? As for performance, well, it's almost as fast as a Tesla Model 3 Performance. Hmm. Practical? Well, less room for passengers and luggage than the aforementioned Tesla. As for top speed, pretty good, but not quite as fast as the aforementioned Tesla....not the fancy Tesla, just the lowly Model 3. The Plaid Tesla referenced is alleged to go 200 mph.....As for cornering performance, the aforementioned Model 3 is faster on the Nurburgring. Oh, the phony noise...tres chic. Too bad it's an option. Oh range....not a strong point. Summary: this car is pretty much inferior to that pesky Tesla in every respect, other than the nameplate. These things will be a hell of a deal on the used market once the Tesla Model S Plaid starts shipping. Probably well worth 40k.

      1. Ethelred

        @D K not really. Factually he’s right. And he didn’t even mention the fabulous Supercharger network. This Porsche can only use the public chargers. Imagine the embarrassment of having to drive past about 20 shiny white 150kw Superchargers to get to your public one :) Why is this on another level? It’s about 3 or 4 years behind Tesla technology. And as they get close, the new Teslas come out. Yes I have a M3P. It’s faster than this Taycan, can use all the chargers it sees, has the charger network intrinsically linked to its satnav, has OTA and has better range/efficiency. You may be upset that folk are mentioning the Tesla in the same breath as this revered Porsche, but as Tesla set the benchmark for the rest to catch up to, that’s the way it is :)

      2. D K

        Wow. Are you serious? Comparing this to Model3? And Model S? That old dog? Oh, you are Tesla stock owner, explains a lot. Deal with it. This is on another level than everything Tesla makes and will make. You don't get it. Face it.

      Sorry to point it out but you dont charge 0-100% so 43 hours that you dont have time for is irrelevant.

      1. Markus

        @Aussie2u offcourse someone does it sometimes but thats not the poin. PS, get a wallbox in your cabin.

      2. Aussie2u

        Sure you do! I can get from Atlanta to a cabin in the Smokey Mountains with one charge but it then arrives near zero. There are no high speed chargers anywhere so you plug into the 110v cabin outlet and then go enjoy the outdoors for the weekend. You need a bit over 90% to then make it back...

      Taycan is the highest performance all electric for less than $300,000 U.S., though, I want to be able to throw gears for as long as I can buy it. Will regret the day the option of not being able to buy a Manual Transmission, let alone the disappearing steering wheel (BMW).. My current car is a 2016 Mustang and bought the only one with Magneride Suspension and the Automatic Paddle Shifter, because I thought if it's good enough for the Formula 1 Driver's than it would be okay. By 1 month and 1,700 mile round trip drive i was bored with the automatic. 👦🏻👍🏻🏎🏁 Future will be less engaging and Self drive I saw a Video where self drive fails miserably....dangerous

      I wish people would stop calling this a Model S rival. It's literally not even in the same class, Porsche is a much better and higher quality car. Just because they're electric doesn't mean they're rivals. It's like comparing a Dodge Charger to a Mercedes S class just because they both have V8's.

Newsflash: If you buy a crashed car with a bad repair job the panels often don't fit any more. But from the factory all Porsches are just about perfect, especially compared to anything American.

      “Porsche has finally put the weight down in a sensible place, it only took them 70 years”. What an asinine comment. Porsche has been the benchmark for sports cars for decades.

      1. Ethelred

        Yes but they’ve had most of the weight hanging out behind the rear axle. Their cars have been a triumph of engineering over physics. That’s what he means, and he is correct.

        @Thorstein Klingenberg customer car : decameras.info/block/qZt2pZSAabTIbHk/video.html 6 seconds faster than Taycan Turbo S on 0-150mph ;)

      2. Thorstein Klingenberg

        @Alex Z The Plaid has to be independently tested on customer cars until we know. Tesla cheats, always.

      3. Alex Z

        @Thorstein Klingenberg wrong, the new Tesla is much faster...

      4. Thorstein Klingenberg

        ​@Ethelred No. The Taycan Turbo S is the fastest four door electric car out there. Also, keep in mind that Teslas are fast on the first drag, if at 100% SOC and ludi-mode, and cheeta stance, and after warnings and dings. Then with each drag they overheat and reduce power. As the SOC reduces it also looses power. The Taycan is as quick after 20 consecutive drags as it was on the first one. Twist the knob on the steering wheel to Sport Plus, floor both pedals, release brake and away you go, again and again. The Tesla is cheaper though. And sadly it shows, especially in the interior and general fit & finish.

      5. Ethelred

        Yes. The Tesla M3P has more range and the same or better performance. And access to the Supercharger network. This Porsche is OK but it’s not the epoch defining car.

      I love how he says the cruise control lever gets in the way of the gear selector.. when it’s on the left side lol

      Porsche says "With the new battery-saving charging function, the charging power can be reduced from up to 270 kW to 200 kW if required." In other words - they're not so sure about those 270 kW in long term. newsroom.porsche.com/en/2021/products/porsche-free-software-update-for-first-taycan-models-23911.html

      I dont often wish piles on anyone but this guy deserves them.....

      6:25 referring to Porsche finally putting the battery lower in the car. I believe they did that on the 918, which isn't 70 years old

      1. MrPorsche91730

        His comment is just dumb. Porsche has made mid engine cars 914, boxter, and the fr panamera. I don't know why he is saying 70 years. I thought he was talking about what is prob the first electric car the Porsche lohner I think it was called

        Don't be so naïve. It's called artistic license. Google a person called 'Jeremy Clarkson' for a seemingly infinite number of better examples. He also happens to be a car journalist.

      3. Aiv

        I think he meant that the weight displacement was not right for the 911 because it's rear mounted. The 911 has been in production for 70 years, so that was my thought.

      Can we all agree that calling an EV model "Turbo" is totally stupid?

        My vacuum cleaner is a turbo, that sucks too😂😂😋

      Tesla's build quality? Seriously. Top Gear always wants to put down the Tesla especially when some Euro company pushes out their own electric car. They crap on the build quality, or compare it to older models. The new model S gets more range and is faster and cheaper than the Taycan. I can't take Top Gear seriously anymore with their reviews of electric cars. I want to see side by side comparison with the Porsche and Tesla and then let's have a go at a video.

      1. Steve Moore

        @D K Electric cars have been around since the turn of the 20th century. GM made the EV1. Which actually angered the owners when they took them back. I know my history on electric cars. The part that is funny to me is that Porsche people don't want a comparison that's American. Tesla is the better car and Top Gear has done nothing but give sidemouth reviews of Tesla while flouting Porsche while they don't have the same stats to the one who is spearheading the movement.

      2. D K

        @Ethelred Desirability is higher than sales. And sales are very good at those price points. Can look up the numbers.

      3. D K

        @Steve Moore They changed their tune due to regulations and falling prices of batteries. Comparing ANY porsche to ANY tesla is ridiculous. And do note, tesla was not first with EVs.

        @blink182bfsftw by the way, don't come on here and refer to name calling like you are some smart person in a debate. You come off as stupid and immature as your favorite band.

      5. blink182bfsftw

        Omg sick burn. The cig in your mouth is super cool btw

    90. Stewart J

      A car with such a crazy price tag needs to have a range of 400+ which I guess the next generation probably will as battery tech and motor efficiency improves.

      1. Ethelred

        Current Tesla model S and certainly the 2022 one already has that.

    91. Emilio Carrasco

      I'm surprised they used mph. I've always had to convert when watching TG.

    92. Ved Animated

      Beautiful car.

    93. andy wiseman

      Your not Clarkson mate so don’t try a be him?

        Well said

      The one video of an EV I am watching where the editors didn't put an engine sound.

      The whole lab coat thing feels so fake to me. Stop trying so hard!

      I'm really liking these online segments. You guys should include these as part of the normal show!

      1. bongo bob

        This guy is a pleb. No way would I want him in a normal show ruining it.

      2. Pigeon Poo

        I suspect the audience Venn diagram of top gear TV and top gear DEcameras is more segregated than you think.

      Ive been in one and it was an amazing ride

      Nice video of a decent review- how novel? Good job.
