ALL NEW 2022 Audi e-tron GT Fully Electric Sportscar But is it Better Than Porsche Taycan or Tesla Model S?

Have one on order for delivery April.

I have friends with Tesla's who love the under the hood tech (how could you not) but are appalled by the build quality. One did show me several examples of that. It wasn't good.

The Porsche carries a certain image in the UK which can be viewed as either 'purest car guy' or 'trying a little too hard' :)

That said I saw the Taycan in the metal last week in a wonderful shade of light met blue and it did cause me to wander if I'd done the right thing with the Audi.

I think I have. Build quality is (usually) exceptional. Is a bit the 'boring brother' to the Porsche.

From a pov of making the investment decision, I've come to conclude that it is the better proposition. Whether it will prove to be so when it lands, only time will tell. I hope so.

Your video is unavailable apparently.

It really depends what you mean by better. I’m sure it’s a better drivers car than the Tesla, and it’s arguably better looking than the Porsche. Ultimately though, it’s an Audi, so always going to be a bit polarising. I wouldn’t.

Better for us rather than better per-se.

In terms of build I'd say better having seen the Tesla reality .... in terms of range, not so. In performance ... probably unless you taking one of those end ones. And handling it reviews better than Teslas. Can't say as I've put that to any real test as yet. Ironically performance is not hugely important for us. Being pacey is a nice spin off for us.

But 100% it's down to the individual. I'm not a fan of any of those brands if truthful. It does sort of fit our M.O for a few years and the road test was very pleasing if that sustains.

For us, it's more about the experience and for use on long hauls of Europe and beyond should the infrastructure be available.

I think my mid term EV future is more Polestar Precept shaped. And although very early days I cannot help but be distracted by the Lucid proposition. But very early days for them and a lot to prove. So far, they seem be to reviewing rather well.
