Vellum Venom: 2020 Porsche Taycan Turbo S
Tesla undoubtedly made electrified vehicles a performance/luxury status symbol and a statement of environmental consciousness. This new take on snob appeal in the face of a progressive, electrified future mirrors the forgotten history of the Ford Model K. That massive, six-cylinder touring car sold well enough to keep FoMoCo afloat (i.e.contributing the lion’s shareof profits) while Henry’s boffins were knee-deep in mass-market Model T machinations. So let’s embrace nextModel Kgeneration of electrified luxury superiority: the Porsche Taycan Turbo S, with an as-tested price of $205,000.
The Taycan has miles of presence, thanks to decades of design DNA stemming from the stillbornPorsche 989prototype. Let’s examine the new Emperor’s clothes with a run over the vellum.
Definitely some questionable details. Most of all the lower front fender / rocker area. If only that photo was given there's no chance I would have thought that was on a $100+ car. Truly, as you mentioned, it shows that someone could build car that looks like this for a much more affordable price.
Thanks as always for taking the time to put this together. VV always shocks me how intensely interesting tiny details you spot can be.
