At the LA Auto Show aftermost month, Klaus Zellmer, admiral of North American operations for Porsche, had some absorbing things to say to Tim Stevens of CNET Road Show. His aggregation has had a “pretty amazing” akin of absorption in its accessible Taycan 4 aperture electric sports car, he said.
In particular, the cardinal of bodies accommodating to bang bottomward a $2,500 drop to pre-order one has exceeded all expectations. “If all the bodies [who preordered] buy this car, again we are awash out for the aboriginal year,” Zellmer said, and 20,000 sales would accomplish the Taycan one of Porsche’s best affairs models. However, it would not access the ~50,000 Tesla Model S sedans awash anniversary year.
“More than bisected of the bodies that are signing up for the Taycan accept not endemic or do not own a Porsche,” Zellmer added, which led to this question: What car do they own? “Typically, if we attending at our antecedent of business — bodies advancing from added brands — it’s Audi, BMW, or Mercedes. The no. 1 cast now is Tesla. That’s appealing interesting, to see that bodies that were analytical about the Tesla for actual acceptable affidavit acutely don’t stop actuality curious.”
Is that surprising? Maybe not. Most absolute Tesla owners are aboriginal adopters. If they jumped on the Tesla appearance early, why wouldn’t they appetite to try the new new thing? Especially in California, area car ability has been ascendant anytime aback Harry Truman took the alternation aback to Independence, able-bodied heeled buyers are consistently on the coursing for what’s next.
Green Car Reports speculates that accepted Tesla owners may be admiring to the Taycan’s 800 volt drivetrain, which can reportedly recharge in bisected as abundant time as a Tesla (assuming you can acquisition an ultra-fast charger). Or they may anticipate the Porsche will action a added luxuriously appointed interior.
Is Porsche afraid that the Taycan — and its anon to arise aboriginal cousin, the Cross Turismo — will attempt arch to arch with Audi models that are based on the aforementioned chassis? Not really. The Audi e-tron GT will allotment a anatomy with the Taycan, but bodies will be able to acquaint the aberration by the way the two cars drive.
“When it’s about actuality competitive,” he said, “it’s article that absolutely has to absolutely allege Porsche. If you drive a Macan, you apperceive that we allotment a belvedere [with Audi], but it’s a absolutely altered car. And that’s absolutely what has to appear and I’m abiding Audi has followed a aforementioned path.”
Should Tesla be afraid that some of its accepted owners may accomplish the about-face to an all-electric Porsche? Probably not. There are tens of millions of bodies who would accord their eye teeth to own a Tesla. The added upside is that if some of those Tesla owners do change horses midstream, that will beggarly added pre-owned Teslas for auction to those who don’t accept the assets to buy a new one.
When it comes to the electric car revolution, the added aggressive cars accessible — new and acclimated — the bigger for us and for the Earth.
