2020 Porsche Taycan Model Review with Prices, Photos, & Specs

About the Porsche Taycan

Engineered with new technologies developed on the racetrack and on the road, Porsche takes another step towards the future with the Taycan — a new vision of the all-electric sports sedan. As the first purely electric sports car in the brand’s history, the Taycan features a total system voltage of 800V, a combined system output of 600 horsepower, and a top track speed of 155 MPH. Inspired by motorsport aerodynamics, the Taycan features a sleek silhouette to help it slice through the air and remain firmly planted to the road surface. An ingenious underbody battery placement helps the Taycan achieve an optimal center of gravity.

Key Features

Acceleration 0-100 km/h (0-62 MPH) – 3.5 seconds · Acceleration – 0-200 km/h (0-124 MPH) – less than 12 seconds · Power – 440 kW (600 Horsepower) · Range – 500 km (300 Miles) · Charging time – 80% in 15 minutes

Everyday Practicality

Since range and charge times are of the utmost importance to electromobility, the Porsche Taycan doubles the standard charging voltage to 800 volts. The end result is shorter charge times and reduced weight through the use of thinner copper wires. You’ll be able to drive more than 300 miles on a single charge and just 15 minutes are needed to recharge for another 250 miles of range. Another groundbreaking technology found on the Taycan is inductive charging capability. With a coil installed in the garage floor, all the car has to do is park over it for power to be transferred wirelessly to the coil’s counterpart in the underbody.

Exterior Design

Every aspect of the exterior design of the Taycan has been meticulously engineered to be instantly recognizable as a Porsche. A low-slung roofline combined with the qualities of iconic Porsche sports cars help make the Taycan stand out from the ordinary. Distinctive air intakes and outlets on the front, sides, and rear highlight the body’s comprehensive flow-through design. Stylish matrix LED headlights with Porsche’s signature four-point design float within the front air intakes.

Development & Innovation

Every Porsche vehicle has a name which provides an inspired connection with the corresponding model along with its characteristics. The name “Taycan” traces its linguistic roots to the East, translating to the equivalent of “spirited young horse”. This name pays tribute to the imagery found at the center of the Porsche crest, first introduced in 1952.

Doubling the initial investment into electromobility, Porsche has dedicated a total of six billion Euros by 2022. Assembly of the Tacan will occur inside a dedicated production center at Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen. A section of the original engine plant will be converted in order to produce new electric drivetrains. A total of 1,200 new jobs will be created in Zuffenhausen alone as a result of the Taycan.

Walter Röhrl Test Drives the Porsche Taycan

“Most impressive. Of course the car handles just the way a Porsche should. Every meter you drive makes it clear you’re in a car that was developed by Porsche engineers. The steering precision and the brake- and throttle response… This kind of thrust is something no normal person has ever experienced. The continuous engine power from zero to full throttle without the slightest interruption of traction, a chassis that goes exactly where I steer it… It basically is all you could wish for. So much of the know-how I’ve appreciated about Porsche for 50 years is also found in this car. In the case of this car it really is true that tears of emotion flow horizontally. Unbelievable!” — Walter Röhrl, World Rally Championship legend
