No, I know *about* him and I am a native German speaker, so I don't have to rely on the subtitles to understand what he is saying and in which tone. He has been in the spotlight in Germany for more...

The final product looks much better than even the camo'd "leak" from two days suggested (at least for me). So hopefully with the final detailing the Taycan will also look much better than the current...

Hope dies last, but indeed it appears that Kacher was talking out of his butt regarding the "three piece" trick spoiler :(

Looks then like the biggest innovation is the new PDK shifter.

I bet if I traded my 2014 C4S for a 992 in black, my wife would never find out (unless she checked our account balances).

What is the theory for the faint lines/gaps in this picture, running from the extension of the C-pillar through the rear spoiler? In the Car magazine article from a couple of month ago, Georg Kacher...

Same here - got a used 4S over an S just for the big ass (well, I may have told my wife that 4wd is useful for MA winters). I think for the 992 I would be happy with the C2 (or maybe a 992 T?).

Wasn't that quoted as one of the reasons for the move from the 7-speed to 8-speed PDK? 8-speed is heavier, but more compact and leaves space for an electric motor in the transmission housing. It's...

I didn't follow this saga for the more recent model years, but Porsche went through a lot of pain with the Macan clamshell hood for the initial production year(s) (or maybe the pain was more on the...

It took me a moment to realized that the image was CGI. I didn't see that mentioned in some of the articles online. I agree that Porsche is setting themselves up for a lot of misery by continuing to...

Rate of car theft per capita in Sweden is less than half of that in the US. Violent crime and murder rates in the US are a multiple of those in Sweden. One difference is that the concept of good/bad...

Tesla may have been ahead of everyone else by 10 years in 2010. I'll be looking for a new set of cars in 2019 - and right now I'd be much more inclined to go with a Mission E or I-Pace than a Model S...

The concept IS the Mission E, just with a "sport turismo" wagon rear, raised suspension and some black plastic (and some concept elements in the interior, one presumes). Most of the body (front end,...

I'm sure they didn't build the fastback prototypes for fun. Looks like there will be a fastback and "sport turismo'' (aka wagon) versions of the Mission E - just like for the Panamera. Between this...

German Sport Auto had both the 2018 GTS and 2018 GT3 on the Hockenheim short course (though not at the same time). GTS did 1:08.0min, GT3 .1:07.9. GTS was on P Zero Corsa. So, on equal/similar tires...

Not sure if 0-60 in 1.9s (on street tyres) passes a smell test. That's 1.4g, which means 0-60mph in 25m. Shortest 60-0 braking distances on street tyres are 27-28m, and I don't see why longitudinal...

Hm, local dealer wants $2500 refundable (ok) to get on the waitlist at "sticker or slightly above" (wtf). Need to start calling around, I guess.
