If this does not make your day, I don’t know what will

The 2020 Porsche 911 Turbo is expected to come later this year, but we don’t have to wait to see it. The car has been spotted doing test runs out in the open sans any clothes. The car looks super sexy in black, driving sedately behind a cement mixer. In another instance, even the Porsche Taycan was spotted from the rear roaming the streets. We get to see the huge ass taillights and turn signal in action as well. Another prototype of the Porsche Taycan was spotted sprinting with blue dressing with ‘soul electrified’ and ‘Taycan’ decals on it. Although these sightings are fun, it makes the wait seem even longer. Can we just have the cars already, Porsche?!

The 992 Porsche 911 Turbo Will Be A Lot More Powerful Than Its Predecessors

The next-gen 992 Porsche 911 Turbo is breathing fire from what we know about it until now. The car is expected to be a lot more powerful than the current-gen Turbo and Turbo S. The 2020 Porsche 911 Turbo will ride on the same aluminum architecture than also underpins the 992 Carrera. It is expected to feature the same 3.8-liter, twin-turbo, flat six-cylinder engine from the current-gen, albeit with a power bump. The Turbo is expected to produce 560 horses, whereas the Turbo S will make around 600 horses, both getting an increase of 20 ponies over the current-gen. The Turbo should be able to make the 0-60 mph sprint in under three seconds, and the Turbo S a millisecond or two faster; so, that’s around 2.8 seconds. Power will be sent to all the wheels via the fantastic new eight-speed PDK transmission. It could come with rear-wheel steering as well.

If rumors are to be believed, Porsche will offer it in a hybrid guise as well. If we do see that happening, expect it to make over 700 horses. As for the pricing, the current-gen 911 Turbo and Turbo S are priced at $163,000 and $192,000 respectively. The 2020 models should see a rise of at least five to seven-percent, thus pushing the Turbo S’ price north of the $200,000.

Will The Porsche Taycan Exceed Expectations?

Coming to the Taycan, this is one of the most anticipated models from Porsche in recent times; primarily because it is the first all-electric model to roll out of the company. The Taycan takes on the Tesla Model S head-on, so expect it to be as good as, or even better than Musk’s child. While the overall design is quite nice and in line with Porsche’s other products, I found the rear to be a little too — how do I put it — dramatic. The car is expected to be launched in the summer this year, but why wait until then when the company has let it out in the open without any camouflage or covering.

From what we know, Porsche Taycan will be powered by four electric motors, one on each wheel. The combined output should be in the ballpark of 600 ponies. and sprint to 60 mph from a standstill in roughly 3.5 seconds. The company claims a mile range of 310 miles according to the NEDC, but the EPA rating should be close to 250 miles. The 0-60 mph figure is one full second lesser than the Model S’ most powerful trim, but faster than its base trim which does the same sprint in 4.2 seconds. Expect Porsche to reach much closer to the 2.5-second benchmark set by Tesla Model S. Pricing, you ask? It will start around $85,000 and might go all the way up to $200,000 for the top-trim with a lot of add-ons fitted.
