I would much rather they kept the same ride height and did away with the SUV-ness of it. Not every long-roof has to be a crossover/SUV.
I think that part was very intentional. Here, it appeals to those who want's not only a wagon style Taycan, but something slightly more rugged, so that it can deal with the "roughish" gravel road that many (wealthy) people have to their mountain and/or seaside cabins. If it wasn't for this, they may have just made a Sport Turismo, like the Panamera.

I hate the ride height but damn that green is so fucking sexy.
Yes, I did see one in that "mamba green" color a while back, and I did stop to look at it:

EPA rate base model at 200 miles
For some reason the EPA-ratings of the Taycan are super pessimistic. Inside EVs managed to get almost 300 miles out of the base Taycan (with the performance battery pluss)

Also, Teslabjørn managed to get 580 km out of the Taycan 4S with performance battery pluss and the smaller wheels:

I just realized that the "active lifestyle" version of the Taycan got a bigger suspension raise than my car did. :LOL:
