Trailer/tow vehicle gap doesn't get much better than this:


Just A Car Guy: I haven't seen anything this cool in a while

But the soap box derby racer would be faster backwards.

In pitch roll or yaw?

I think it's a ball-and-socket arrangement.

Pitch, mainly. Can't imagine cresting any sort of hill without things going crunch back there. Maybe there's no trunk lid and the nose of the trailer is narrow so it's OK when straight. Just no fancy maneuvers and no challenging terrain.

Porsche's press release says the base Turbo has Cd 0.22 and the Turbo S Cd 0.25. I haven't seen either in person, so I'm not sure what the differences are between them. The Chicago Auto Show website says the Taycan will be on display, so I'll see it there.
