Default Porsche's 1st all-electric car named Taycan

Porsche’s first all-electric vehicle has been known so far as Mission E, but the company has announced that the production version of the vehicle will be called the ‘Taycan’.

The first all electric Porsche - The Taycan.

Quote:
The name apparently means a "lively, young horse," according to Porsche Boss Oliver Blume, CNBC reports.

Really sad name. I think they were trying too hard to make it close to Macan.

Memes have already started floating on the internet!

Well, I think we've been conditioned to weird names recently.

Taycan sounds acceptable by modern standards. Afterall, the previous launch from both competing brands were

- Ferrari Pista &
- Lamborghini Urus

• The Taycan will have a travel range of 500km on a single charge.

• 0 - 100kmph comes in under 3.5 seconds and to 200kmph in under 12 seconds.

• Porsche will bring the Taycan to India by 2020.

Damn, if ever a futuristic car looked great, this one is it. Love that front 3-quarter look in the opening post (hate the rear though).

Stupid name, but with 670 horses, it's going to be easy to build a solid reputation. Someone on Jalopnik put it best:

I hope it has a Porsche performance. Durability is a given. Engineering one has to see. I hope the road manners are also good.

Why does it appear to have twin exhausts at the rear?

The twin exhaust pipes are dummy finishers to throw off people when the mule is spotted testing.

The average Joe will assume it's a gasoline powered car when he spots the exhaust pipes.

Really a good looking sedan (finally by Porsche).

IMO this is how the Panamera should've looked from Day 1

Porsche seems to be working on establishing a charging network before the launch of the Taycan.
