The Mission E concept goes into production as Porsche’s answer to the Tesla Model S

The Porsche Taycan is an all-electric sports sedan based on the Mission E concept. It’s also Porsche’s first-ever production electric car, designed to go against the Tesla Model S. Previewed by the Mission E concept, the Taycan sports design features borrowed from the show car, but also includes styling features seen on the Panamera sedan and 911 sports car. Powered by a couple of electric motors, the Taycan generates in excess of 700 horsepower in its range-topping version.

While considered laughable just a decade or two ago, the idea of a high-performance electric vehicle is now widely accepted in even the most traditional of speed circles. Porsche took full advantage of this and designed a sleeker Panamera that’s notably more powerful and quicker. Granted, it’s not as spectacular as the Mission E concept, but it’s definitely an exotic appearance even when compared to full-fledged sports cars. However, does it have what it takes to compete with the Tesla Model S? Let’s find out in the detailed review below.

Updated 10/14/2019: Porsche added a new member to its Taycan lineup. The new Taycan 4S has been announced in two different battery configurations. Check the Drivetrain section for more details.

Porsche Celebrates Back To The Future Day A Racing The Taycan Against The DeLorean To 88 MPH

If there was ever a good way to celebrate Back to the Future day, A Porsche Taycan racing a Delorean was definitely it

If you are a fan of 1980s science fiction cinema, you will love what Porsche has done, in order to celebrate ‘Back to the Future” day. At the same time, Porsche is celebrating the Electrify America and Europe Ionity charging networks exceeding 1.21 gigawatts. What’s the connection, you’re asking? In “Back to the Future”, the time-traveling DeLorean required the same 1.21 gigawatts in order to run “back to the future”. Now, the future is here.

Outside of SUVs the Porsche Taycan is Porsche’s best-selling model so far in 2021 - how crazy is that?

In a world where crossovers and SUVs reign supreme, it is no surprise that the Porsche Cayenne and Macan continue to be the brand’s best-sellers. For the rest of Porsche’s model lineup though, the all-electric Taycan sits comfortably in third, making it the best-selling non-SUV Porsche so far this year.

The Taycan Cross Turismo is a perfect combination of performance and comfort with added luxury from the house of Porsche. Like its sedan brother, the Cross Turismo delivers a spacious cabin, but has an enlarged cargo area and is practical in most cases. While the 2022 model year mainly remains unchanged, there are a few additions which we will talk about in detail in this in-depth review.

The Porsche Taycan has always been a great car, but it is not perfect. Its main rival, the Tesla Model S, still has cost and range on its side. While Porsche is not really doing anything about the cost, they are adding numerous upgrades for 2022 ranging from customization to tech, to range and efficiency.

The 2022 Taycan Has Been Improved In Ways That You Can't Imagine

The 2022 Taycan Has Been Improved In Ways That You Can’t Imagine

Rubystone Red pays tribute to the classic 964-generation 911 models

Updating cars on a year-to-year basis is becoming a new trend, and the Taycan is the latest model to jump on that bandwagon. For 2022, Porsche has improved the Taycan dramatically, with all updates geared toward making day-to-day use easier. It all starts with Normal and Range modes. When these modes are engaged, the front motor is almost completely decoupled and de-energized. And an new computer algorithm allows both motors to disengage when the car is coasting or at a standstill, something that also helps increase usable range.

Beyond this, Porsche has updated the Taycan’s thermal management system with the goal of optimizing the drivetrain. The battery can now be heated to a slightly higher temperature, which allows for fast charting earlier and at a higher charge level – something that reduces the amount of time required to charge. Even better, the excess heat from electrical components is now used to a greater extent to regulate the battery’s temperature.

Alongside these new upgrades, Porsche is now offering the Taycan with Remote Park Assist that will allow you to park it with your smartphone and Android Auto has finally been integrated into the sixth-generation PCM infotainment system. The Taycan can also be ordered through the paint-to-sample and paint-to-sample plus programs, the first one of which includes up to 65 available colors, like the cool red you see here.

Watch The Tesla Model S Take On The German Trio Of The Audi e-Tron GT, The Mercedes EQS, and The Porsche Taycan

The Model S is the most powerful of the lot, but it isn’t the Performance model

The folks at Carwow brought in four of the best EVs that money can buy you today. The contenders include an Audi e-Tron GT, a Mercedes EQS, a Porsche Taycan 4S, and a Tesla Model S. The Model S is the veteran of the lot, but can it defeat its fairly new rivals on the drag strip?

Watch The Porsche Taycan Turbo S Get Schooled By The Tesla Model S Plaid On The Drag Strip

You don’t see the Porsche Taycan get mercilessly beaten on a drag strip very often

The Porsche Taycan Turbo S is the most powerful Taycan you can buy today. The car is even more powerful than the Taycan model that currently holds the record for being the fastest four-door EV on the Nurburgring. But, after enjoying dominance for some time, the Taycan Turbo S is finally down and under, courtesy of the Tesla Model S Plaid. The Plaid comes with unbelievable specs and it was only a matter of time before it faced the Taycan Turbo S. The folks at DragTimes got these two quick and fast beasts on the drag strip for some quarter-mile runs only for the German to get see a set of taillights in every single race. Dominating fuel-powered supercars is one thing, but humiliating a really quick $200,000 EV? That’s just ludicrous (pun intended).

Watch The Rimac Nevera Go For The Kill Against The Porsche Taycan And The BMW M5

The Nevera makes more power than the Taycan and M5… combined!

Rimac unveiled the production form of C_Two concept last month. Christened with the name ‘Nevera’, this electric hypercar debuted with jaw-dropping specs. Stuff like 1,900 horses from a quad-motor setup, 0-60 mph in 1.85 seconds, etc. were the best for any production car. It came with a heavy price tag, too, costing around $2.5 million after currency conversion.

A car with these specs can’t be a match to any production car (Tesla Model S Plaid being the closest, but not better), but the folks at Carwow still decided to pit it against two German sprint runners – the Porsche Taycan Turbo S and the BMW M5 Competition. Do you think either of them can walk out of this race with any shred of dignity left?

It was in the month of May 2021 that news broke of Audi’s intentions to sell and electric A4 along what will undoubtedly be the last ICE-powered generation of the a4\s4 lineup. We quickly jumped on the idea that the RS4 E-Tron, as we’re calling it, could eventually become the A4 E-tron Wagon.

The Tesla Model S has been obliterating other cars on the drag strips for years now. But, can it beat two of the hottest EVs as well? The folks at Carwow brought the Model S in its Performance avatar to the drag strip to take on the German duo of Audi E-Tron GT and the Porsche Taycan Turbo S. The Germans are priced significantly higher than the Tesla Model S. But does that mean they are also quicker, faster, and more powerful?

They had a particularly glamorous record between 2005 and 2012, giving us multiple visually-enhanced Porsche models, almost every year, throughout that period. Although their last project involved a mildly altered 991-generation 911, they came back full-force for this one. The new Taycan features many new elements, courtesy of the German tuner, and although it’s not over-the-top like something you’d expect from Mansory, it still is a significant upgrade over the already aggressive-looking super EV.

Porsche has been in the habit of setting records recently, and it’s added another one to its name. Unbroken and unsurpassed since 2013, the Guinness World Record title for the fastest indoor land speed record has sat on the shelf of Tanner Foust, who clocked in a record speed of 86 mph back in 2013. That record has now gone by the wayside, thanks to Porsche and professional racer Leh Keen. Driving a Taycan Turbo S, Keen hit a top speed of 102.6 mph, eviscerating the previous record by more than 16 mph. As if owning the Guinness World Record for longest drift by an electric car — 210 laps — wasn’t enough, the record-breaking Taycan has another one in the bag.

One of the joys of seeing more and more electric cars, particularly those of the performance-spec persuasion, is seeing them compete against some of the fastest and most powerful gasoline-powered supercars in the world. We’ve seen our fair share of drag races involving electric cars and traditional exotics, and while one side of those battles have mostly been Teslas, YouTube channel Lovecars switched things up by racing a Lamborghini Aventador SV against a Porsche Taycan Turbo S. This is a juicy and intriguing race, in large part because both the naturally aspirated Lambo and the all-electric Porsche return the same acceleration tim to 62 mph at 2.8 seconds despite carrying two completely different powertrain setups. Who takes the cake here? Let’s find out.

Mercedes-Benz just reclaimed the fastest luxury car and fastest production car at the Nurburgring titles a few days ago. Last month, the SSC Tuatara wrestled the fastest car in the world title from the Koenigsegg Agera RS, albeit in a controversial fashion. There’s a world record for every automaker these days, including Porsche, which set the Guinness World record for longest drift by an electric car with the Taycan, going sideways for 26 straight miles with an average speed of 29 mph. Even with all these records popping up, it’s hard to deny that the achievement was impressive, especially when you consider that driver Dennis Retera had to sustain the drift for almost an hour.

Electric cars are not absolute newcomers to the car industry anymore. Over the past five years or so, most carmakers have churned out at least one electric car with plans to release a handful of others over the coming decade or so. The charging infrastructure has grown, too.

While this is obviously good news, it also leaves us (and the customer) with quite a big pond of EVs to choose from. To add more to the confusion and indecision, electric cars come in all shapes and sizes, set in motion by just one electric motor, two, or even three, and, obviously, very different price tags.

Later on, it will also launch an electric SUV, as well as an EV version of the 718. Porsche’s recent and aggressive campaign into EV territory suggests that the German automaker is going after Tesla, especially since the Taycan is actually a high-performance model. However, Porsche says that it does not consider Tesla to be a direct competitor.

Meet Traycan, the Porsche Pickup Truck We Will Never Get

Meet Traycan, the Porsche Pickup Truck We Will Never Get

Truck + Taycan = Traycan. Do you get it now?

A truck is all that Porsche is missing from its current lineup. Even so, it’s extremely hard to imagine that even in its wildest corporate dreams the carmaker would think of coming to the market with a pickup truck, even in the context where a lot of brands are rushing to jump the e-truck market.

You’ve go Tesla, of course, with the Cybertruck, then there’s Rivian and its R1T, Bollinger B2, and the future all-electric Ford F-150, plus some other equally interesting contraptions. So, where would a

Taycan

based pickup truck slot in, then?

Porsche's 200-Page Annual and Sustainability Report Had a Little Surprise In It

Porsche’s 200-Page Annual and Sustainability Report Had a Little Surprise In It

Porsche is going to milk the Taycan, and the first model will be a Concept from 2018

Reports about the Porsche Macan EV have been bouncing back and forth for a year now, with the latest news being that it may only be sold as an EV from 2024 onward. This news came via an external report, but it is mentioned briefly in Porsche’s Annual and Sustainability Report for 2019 and that it is scheduled to launch in 2022. What was more interesting in that report, however, is reference to a jacked-up rugged wagon, once known as the Mission-E Cross Turismo Concept. Do you see where this is going? Are you getting excited yet?

The Porsche Taycan Has Limitless Launch Control

The Porsche Taycan Has Limitless Launch Control

Turns out the Taycan’s launch control feature was made to be abused... repeatedly

If you’re into modern Porsches, then you know they pack super-fancy launch control systems that are tougher than a tardigrade. Whether it’s the Panamera, the 911, or its GT3/GT2-badged iterations, launch controlling a Porsche can be done basically until you run out of fuel.

But as Chris Harris was about to discover, the same applies to the Porsche Taycan. That’s nothing short of impressive and at the same time reaffirming of the Taycan’s status as a true out-and-out all-electric sports car.

The Porsche Taycan Turbo S Might Have Horrible Range But Hot Damn is it Fast

The Porsche Taycan Turbo S Might Have Horrible Range But Hot Damn is it Fast

Independent testing shows the Taycan Turbo S can run 10-second quarter miles!

Remember when we told you that the Porsche Taycan Turbo S got a dismal EPA rating of just 194 miles of range on a single charge? Well, as it turns out, that’s the cost of being fast. Incredibly fast. Well, that and a sticker price of $186,350, but that’s a story for another time. In fact, that price almost seems justified.

Porsche Returns to the Land of Super Bowl Commercials with an Electrifying Commercial

Porsche Returns to the Land of Super Bowl Commercials with an Electrifying Commercial

Wait, is that the ___ hiding in plain sight?

Porsche is showing its first Super Bowl commercial in 23 years, and the star of the ad is none other than the all-electric Taycan. The German automaker’s first-ever all-electric production car is all set to hit the market this year, but there’s nothing quite like the platform and reach of the Super Bowl to get the hype going.

The 60-second commercial is called “The Heist” and unlike some previous ones that have touted electric technology more than the actual electric cars, this commercial is all about the Taycan… and several other Porsche vehicles. The 60-second ad will air in the first quarter of the game, but if you want to watch the extended cut, you can check out the video and watch it in its entirety.

The Porsche Taycan Turbo S Is Rated at 194 Miles? It Doesn't Stand a Chance

The Porsche Taycan Turbo S Is Rated at 194 Miles? It Doesn’t Stand a Chance

It looks like Tesla had the Porsche Taycan beat before it was even conceived

You know, I like the Porsche Taycan. I think it’s relatively sport for what it is while still featuring the family friendliness of four-doors and plenty of cargo room. Sure, it kind of looks like a deformed, partially aborted 911 with too much DNA, but that’s a conversation for another day. What I can’t get past, though, is the fact that Porsche has seriously dropped the ball when it comes to EV range. Where the Porsche Taycan Turbo is rated at 201 miles, the Taycan Turbo S garners just 194 on a full charge.
