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 up to 750 horsepower, and a top track speed of up to 161 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.

Porsche Taycan Practicality

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 250 miles on a single charge. Thanks to a multitude of charging solutions, the Taycan redefines the meaning of all-electric travel and eliminates range anxiety for worry-free driving.

Porsche Taycan Exterior

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.

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
