Will the new all electric Taycan cause problems for Tesla, probably YES. “Lively young horse” is somewhat a correct meaning of Taycan and there are 2 of them…permanently excited synchronous motors (PSM) with a system output of over 600 hp (440 kW) moving the Taycan to 100 km/h in well under 3.5 seconds and to 200 km/h in under twelve seconds, wow!
The Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG Oliver Blume said “Our new electric sports car is strong and dependable; it’s a vehicle that can consistently cover long distances and that epitomises freedom”. This is the first electric sports car (hybrides like the 918 does not count) with the soul of a Porsche but it is far from the below iconic Porsche 911, a model that most likely always will be the Porsche enthusiasts favorite.
This performance is in addition to a continuous power level that is unprecedented among electric vehicles: Multiple jump starts are possible in succession without loss of performance, and the vehicle’s maximum range is over 500 km in accordance with the NEDC.
