Honestly haven't paid attention since with a new job. I did nail the top at 960 or whatever.

I don't think we have seen the top Keith

Taycan is a more advanced car in general, but 2x the price of a Model S. Porsche went upmarket, I think most with the means would get a Taycan over a Tesla.

The Taycan battery range is 192-201 miles

The Tesla model S battery is 390 miles

I don't care about range. Most are not going to road-trip in their EV. For those who do, the S is a better choice, but the Porsche is a far superior performance car overall. People care about image and performance far more than range imo.

Me I like the Porsche Taycan design more than the Tesla Model 3.
But I like the price better of the Tesla. I also like the tech and the battery better in the Tesla.
And last but not the least, I prefer Tesla shares over Porsche shares.

In some parts of the planet yes; people care more about image and prestige and disposability.
In general I tend to believe that the majority care about reliability, affordability, long term performance.

So, it depends of who, where, practicality, financial status, dependability, and short and long range distances.

There's nothing wrong with Porsche or Alfa Romeo or McLaren or Jaguar electric cars.
It's just that Tesla shares are more productive/rewarding that's all.
You can buy the shares you like and the cars you like, they don't need to be the same; life's too short to be on the slow lane, shortchanged, lower image.
