Porsche Taycan Turbo ?

Am I missing something? I just saw this headline in one of the automotive magazines:
Quote:
Porsche used three locations in Canada, Germany and China to pronounce its electrified future with the launch of the Taycan all-wheel-drive battery-electric sport sedan, going on sale first in the U.S. later this year. Pricing is expected to start at $150,000 for Taycan Turbo and $180,000 for Taycan Turbo S.

Well Tesla has a ludicrous plus now with just the push of a button I am told. 0 to 60 in 2.2 seconds. Have not seen proof of that though.

10 years from now we may have to trailer these things just to drive them.

The twin electric motors are just slightly out of phase from each other to produce a distinct turbo whine sound when accelerating.
