As Taycan EVs become available across the country, I would recommend to visit your local Porsche dealer and take a test drive of Taycan Turbo or Turbo S, so you have a rock solid reference point of what performance EV should feel like. Do not be surprised if you start screaming like a school girl after you floor it for the first time. I tried all Teslas and at first after you floor Taycan - it would accelerate similarly, but wait for a second or two and it will drop a sledge hammer on you when it switches to the first gear - it accelerates like nothing else before it. Some folks may faint or get dizzy, though. Freaking rocket launcher. And it can do it all day long. I only experienced Turbo, Turbo S would be even crazier/scarier. You would remember it for a long time, I guarantee it. Less expensive $105K Tycan 4S is getting close to Model S range in price, so you can squeak most performance/assistance/battery options for total of $125K. That is a tad better than Turbo starting at $160K. I will retake test drive of Performance Model S and floor this sucker up to see if it is even close. Like I mentioned earlier, the most fun starts when Taycan down shifts the rear motor (only rear motor has dual gear). Teslas do not have the gears in any motor, so my expectations are a bit low at this point. BTW, Porsche sales folks are the one who will push you to kick the car hard, after short preview drive, then you switch to the driver seat. Considering you still feel up to it and do not need a "diaper change". I am pretty sure Tesla sales folks would freak out when you do it during test drive.
