I wonder how many components it shares with the Mission E?

Same platform as the Taycan. The E Tron is a real looker...gorgeous!

One-off prototype...not easy to replace LOL. They did the same when journalists got to drive the Mission E Cross Turismo.

Look at the performance specs. Tesla will be damned about 4 seconds before you are.

0-60 MPH or 1/4 mile times are the last things on my mind if I were to consider an e-car. My C6 Corvette was faster than my current S5, but I much prefer the S5.

Taycan is estimated 0-60 in 3.5 seconds...not too shabby (and Porsche is always conservative when it comes to performance estimates). I would expect the Audi to be close to that.

I'm not sure what's giving me the idea, but something about that cars physical features instantly made me think GTR.
