I thought it was electric Turbo...

I read today that Porsche may do an electric Cayman. That would be a
thrill car to drive, with its suspension, more torque at lower revs and
lower center of gravity?

I guess if I were to consider an electric car, this would be my first choice!

It gets the Rad seal of approval big time. Meanwhile back on the farm, a friend who had his old e push bike nabbed said the tech advances in one year have been truly impressive as he eyes a new one. I still prefer analogue pushies, but in a few years I'll probably get one, all being well.

For us 'purists', Porsche has so totally lost its way since days of yore that it is no longer recognizable. Water cooling, front engines, 4doors & now electric drive. Will the horrors never end........... ?

If the Taycan sells well and it allows petrolheads at the Motorsport division to produce cars like the GT4 and GT3/RS, I’m cool with that.

Interesting competition going on but strike one for Tesla... by breaking down, because it could not run out of batteries so soon, right?
