Cutaway Of Audi e-tron GT + Comparison With Porsche Taycan

DEC 2 2018 BY MARK KANE 9

Audi e-tron GT and Porsche Taycan – find 5 similarities

Audi said that the technology for the all-new e-tron GT concept was developed in close collaboration with Porsche, which makes us wonder how much tech was shared with the upcoming Porsche Taycan (formerly Porsche Mission E).

The specification from the press release and cutaways clearly shows that the Audi e-tron GT concept is equipped with 800 V battery system voltage from the Porsche Taycan. It enables the recharging of the batteries to 80% in 20 minutes. In the case of Porsche, the time potentially will be even shorter – 15 minutes, but we didn’t yet see such ultra-fast charging in the real world.

As you can see below, the layout of the battery pack is almost identical in both models. There is a specific break in the pack for the rear seat legroom so seats can be lower, and there should be plenty of headroom in the back despite the roof line falling quickly.

Porsche Mission E/Porsche Taycan

 

Both models are dual-motor all-wheel drive. Porsche said some 600 hp or 440 kW of power will be available for the Mission E when the car was unveiled in 2015, while Audi states 434 kW (590 hp). Mission E was promised to go 0-100 km/h in 3.5 seconds, which is the same as in case of e-tron GT concept. The time to 200 km/h (124 mph) – 12 seconds – is the same too.

Give us a sign in comments for more similarities that are found here and there.

Audi e-tron GT concept:

  • more than 90 kWh battery
  • over 400 km (248.5 miles) of range (WLTP)
  • dual motor (PMSM) all-wheel drive with torque vectoring
  • system output: 434 kW (590 hp)
  • 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in about 3.5 seconds
  • 0-200 km/h (124 mph) in over 12 seconds
  • top speed of 240 km/h (149 mph)
  • 800 V battery system voltage
  • fast charging: 0-80% in 20-minutes
  • wireless charging at 11 kW (on-board charger is at least 11 kW)
  • 450 liters of luggage capacity plus extra 100 liters under the hood
  • 4.96-meter length, 1.96-meter width and 1.38-meter height

I have found some biggish difference:
The Porsche Taycan concept was 11cm shorter. Maybe the production Taycan has grown a bit, but maybe the Audi will just be a bit bigger. The base architecture should be rather flexible in that regard.

The rear window is the same as on the Taycan, which is different than the Mission e.

You can count on a another similarity with Porsche + Audi… both will be late to market with extensive options packages that can double the price of the vehicle!

In reading this article it’s like InsideEV’s forgot that Audi and Porsche are both owned by VW and use all the same engineering resources. So it’s not surprising that the Taycan and e-tron GT are extremely similar.

We’ve mentioned on several occasions that these are from the same DNA. That’s why we did this post. They are almost the same car with two different names. But, the brands still haven’t completely divulged all the specifics. Nonetheless, we think it’s pretty obvious.

Air shocked fronts, for the Audi, versus coils for Taycan, as far as pics seem to show.

Just read I-Pace trophy cars dump the stock airbags, for Ohlins coil-overs.

Nobody races on air suspensions. Making them exclusive is another way Tesla holds the door open for its customers.

Gosh, these German cars that carry 4 people look to have performance only a second or so slower 0-100kph than an Tesla’s SP100D that can carry up to 7 passengers…. and Model S has been on the market for years.

The 4-seaters look more like the coming Tesla Roadster 2.0 which will be far quicker and faster, has longer range, has already been demonstrated to the public as a running vehicle… Oh, and with options added, the Porsche and the Audi will likely cost as much or very nearly as much as Roadster 2.0.

Who do the Germans imagine that they are kidding?

Looks to me like the Specs are only of the Euro model, not necessarily exactly what will appear in the States.

Hope it goes a lot more than 248mi with more than a 90kWh battery. Looks pretty aerodynamic, but sounds very inefficient.
