Engadget did an on the road preview which the video in post 1 seems to have taken some clips.
I really like the look of this car and points to an exciting future for the e-tron range. Given it's based on the same platform as the Porsche Taycan, you'd hope it would be a fair bit cheaper than one of those but some estimates have it at £100k and for that kind of money I'd be sat having discussions in a Porsche dealer.
I'm assuming there will be shared underpinnings with the Porsche Taycan which certainly is a most impressive car. Given Audi having gone down market in it's dashboard layouts on 8Y A3 and Q3 I think there will be many who hope these will be reversed at some point. Touch screen is great for an iPhone but not the dash of a premium car imho.
Same platform as the Taycan with 60% shared components. Built in the R8 factory. One difference is that the e-tron GT will get 3 motors rather than the 2 the Taycan gets. Don't know if that is just for the top end models though. There will be an RS version as well. Still think the entry point should be far less than the Taycan which looks good value compared to the rest of the Porsche line-up.
https://newsroom.porsche.com/en/products/taycan/powertrain-18555.html Porsche Taycan does look particularly good value against the 992/911 but actually an Audi A7 would still probably be a cheaper financial prospect to e-tron GT or Taycan!! The 991/992/911 high initial cost is often recovered at resale time! ( I'm hoping so anyway!! )
I hate EV with a passion but damn this looks good!

Same car that Tony Stark drives in "Avengers, End Game".
They are very nice but what boils my Pees is the cost, £70k plus with an option or two ffs.
I think it's likely to be rather more than £70K!
Probably mate but still, a starting price of £68k is a bit ridiculous.
I was thinking "has the car got a big dent on it's right hand side, why are they not showing that side??" then at 3:35 you get to see the right hand side lol.
