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.

This Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo Sets a Guinness Record For The Highest Number Of Donuts

This Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo Sets a Guinness Record For The Highest Number Of Donuts

Race of Champions test driver, Terry Grant, sets a new Guinness World record for the highest number of donuts, behind the wheel of a Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo

It’s safe to say that the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo is the first all-electric, high-riding station wagon. It’s also pretty quick with the power output ranging from 476 to 761 horsepower, depending on the version. This means that, if the driver so chooses, it can kick its rear end out without much effort, which is why it managed to set a Guinness World record for the highest number of donuts executed on ice.

The 2022 Porsche Taycan "GT3" by DMC Adds The Wing It Always Needed

A rear wing that completely transforms the look of the Taycan

The Taycan is one of the latest models Porsche launched, and, being an electric model, most people do not think of it as a highly customizable car. Also, there are a lot of people that think the Taycan went away from the traditional Porsche DNA.

But, DMC - a supercar tuner from Germany, decided to bring all sides together and created a Taycan that proves that even electric cars can be fun.

The World’s Top Three Quickest Production Sedans Get Together On The Drag Strip For A Meet-And-Greet

We’re talking about the Porsche Taycan Turbo S, Lucid Air Performance, and the Tesla Model S Plaid

2023 Porsche Taycan Sport Turismo

2023 Porsche Taycan Sport Turismo

The Porsche Taycan Sport Turismo may be Porsche’s smartest decision in recent times, as it combines practicality and sporty on-road manners

The Porsche Taycan is the brand’s first EV model, and for 2023, its lineup is being expanded yet again. Currently, you can choose between 14 different versions of the Porsche Taycan, with regards to power output, battery size, and body type. That said, the new 2023 addition – Taycan Sport Turismo – may just be the ultimate road-oriented, high-performance EV Porsche has made, as it combines the driving dynamics of the regular Porsche Taycan with the practicality of the Taycan Cross Turismo.

Watch The Lucid Air Rip The Porsche Taycan Turbo S To Shreds In This Drag Race

Let’s not forget that the Taycan Turbo S is the flagship Porsche EV and it has been manhandled mercilessly

Brooks from DragTimes pit two most powerful production EVs last month – the Tesla Model S Plaid versus the Lucid Air. It was very much anticipated because the Plaid finally had an EV-rival with similar specs. Now, the Lucid Air Performance Dream Edition takes on the third most powerful production EV on sale today – the Porsche Taycan Turbo S. The Taycan Turbo S, despite being the German’s flagship EV and being costlier than the Lucid Air and the Tesla Model S Plaid, made over 350 horses less than its rival here and wasn’t any lighter either. So, as expected, the Lucid tore through the Air in all the races they took part in.

Porsche may have just created the ultimate high-performance EV with practicality in mind

The Porsche Taycan is at the forefront of Porsche’s expansion and potential transition towards electricity. And while I say this word with a bit of disaffection, there’s no denying that the Taycan, in all its forms – currently 14 of them - is a very capable, high-performance EV. Moreover, with the newly-introduced Taycan Sport Turismo, Porsche may have created the ultimate, practical, high-performance EV.

This Porsche Taycan Coupe Shows What An EV Equivalent of The 911 Could Look Like

This Porsche Taycn Coupe gives a very plausable insight to what a 911-inspired EV could look like

Porsche, like many automotive companies, is working towards a carbon-neutral future. And while electrification is not the only environmentally-friendly solution Porsche is working on, it’s still a big part of their future. The Porsche Panamera’s EV counterpart, Porsche Taycan, proves that and the Porsche 911 is also heading the electrification route, from next year. But what would a Taycan-inspired, EV equivalent to the 911 look like? Design studio 2NCS gives us an idea with this Porsche Taycan Coupe.

The Porsche Taycan GTS is already shaping up to be right in the middle of the Taycan lineup, in terms of price and performance, but it also brings a bit more excitement. Find out how, below.

Fastest Electric Cars in the World

Fastest Electric Cars in the World

Some of these electric cars come with ridiculous specs and seem too good to be true!

There is no dearth of electric cars in the market now. We aren’t just talking about the urban commuters, but also fast electric cars. There are many new automakers that start their electric car journey with fast cars or electric supercars. Companies like Estrema, Aspark, and even Tesla, for that matter, came up with fast electric sports cars or electric supercars. While some have faded into oblivion after showing us promising concepts, some have weathered the storm and are either into production or will enter production.

Here’s a list of the eight fastest electric cars in the world today that are in the production stage or about to enter production. Some of these fast cars are from mainstream automakers, some from established EVmakers, and some from new start-ups.

2022 Porsche Taycan GTS

The 2022 Porsche Taycan GTS proves that being in the middle is not always a bad thing

Although Porsche’s most definitive model is the 911, these days it’s the Taycan that often steals the show. Porsche’s first, modern-day EV gave the Tesla Model S a worthy competitor from an established brand and now, the Porsche Taycan is blessed by the GTS moniker. How does it stack up to the rest of the lineup and does GTS still stand for the sweet spot in Porsche’s lineup?

Porsche Just Expanded the Taycan Lineup with the new Taycan GTS and Sport Turismo

Porsche Just Expanded the Taycan Lineup with the new Taycan GTS and Sport Turismo

The Taycan lineup is growing so fast that it could almost be its own sub-brand

The Taycan has been Porsche’s best-selling non-SUV so far in 2021, so it was no surprise when Porsche ushered in some pretty decent improvements for the 2020 model year, nor was it a surprise when the brand launched the off-road focused Taycan Cross Turismo. It’s pretty obvious that Porsche is dead set on expanding the Taycan into what could almost be its own standalone brand, with rumors indicating that we could even see a Taycan Coupe, Turismo, or road-focused Sport Turismo wagon. Well, as it turns out, Porsche showed up to the L.A. Auto Show with not one but two new Taycans – the aforementioned Taycan Sport Turismo and the new Taycan GTS. It seems Christmas has come a little early this year, folks.

Can The Taycan Turbo S Pull A Win Over The Unconquerable 911 Turbo S?

If history suggests anything, then the EV should win this race; but will the 911 Turbo S bow down so easily?

When EVs take on internal combustion engines, they win almost always. Cars like the Tesla Model S Plaid have beaten some of the beloved heavyweights, like the SF90 Stradale, the Nissan GT-R, the Lamborghini Huracan, etc. However, its chief rival, the Porsche Taycan, hasn’t had the same impact. So, how does the Taycan, in the top-spec Turbo S trim, perform against one of the best internal combustion-engined cars on the drag strip, the Porsche 911 Turbo S? Let’s find out.

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.

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.

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).

Sometimes you see something on the internet and think “why don’t they make it in real life?” This is exactly the case, at least to us, for this Porsche Taycan RWB rendering, which looks like it belongs in the latest “Need for Speed” game. The project is actually done by a digital designer that goes by the name “Shashank Das”. In fact, not long ago, we featured another creation of his – an orange widebody Mazda RX-7, quite similar to what we see here, in terms of modifications.

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

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?

If a new report is accurate, Porsche’s lineup could grow stronger by one sedan

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. What we never stopped to think of, though, is that the A4 E-Tron could be a bigger deal than we expected, and a Porsche badge could be involved….

Vivid Racing just proved that less is more with this amazing carbon fiber aero kit for the Porsche Taycan

As a Porshce, the Taycan is naturally a sporty looking vehicle, but the aftermarket world would argue that a car can always look better. That’s why we’ve seen cars like the Porsche Taycan by Techart or the Porsche Taycan Turbo S by Prior Design. In fact, there are quite a few tuners out there beefing up the Taycan’s chops and even working to extract more power from its electric powertrain, but what if you want just a little extra aerodynamic dominance? What if you want a humble dose of carbon fiber? Well, then you should check out this carbon fiber aero kit form Vivid Racing!

There was no clear winner as all the three EVs, the Audi RS E-Tron GT, the Tesla Model S, and the Porsche Taycan, had their moments to shine

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?

Techart is cooking something special for the Taycan

Techart has been around since 1987 and quickly established itself as one of the go-to Porsche tuners. 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’s plans to build up the Taycan family could soon include a two-door, a convertible, and a low-slung version of the Cross Turismo. Company boss Stefan Weckbach revealed to Autocar that discussions are currently ongoing within Porsche to add body styles to the Taycan to complement the Taycan sports saloon and the Taycan Cross Turismo. No timetable has been set on when these models will arrive or whether they’re going to be green-lighted in the first place.

Ever since EVs have started popping up like mushrooms, a lot of car enthusiasts have deemed them unholy, soulless, and boring to drive. However, there’s another side to it, as demonstrated in this video from the channel Seen Through Glass. The channel is actually quite fun, since it showcases expensive cars and supercars in a more entertaining way, sometimes even using them not how they were intended. This gives us a chance to get answers to questions we never thought we’d be asking. For example, can an all-electric Porsche Taycan drift?

Porsche Continues Its Ridiculous Record Streak With the Taycan

At this point, should we start calling the Taycan the "record-killer"?

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.

Then again, what if the Taycan belonged to the supercar species?

You’re gonna love how this race turns out

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.

Switching to an EV requires some adapting, which has its ups and downs

People have been raving about the Porsche Taycan ever since it debuted. Car journos and vloggers launched controlled it, drifted it, and drove it on the track, screaming in pleasure from behind the wheel.

Being a Porsche, the Taycan must deliver heavily on the performance front, which it does, regardless of trim and powertrain configuration. But what’s it like to live on a daily basis with Porsche’s first-ever EV? After all, excellent daily-driver traits are quintessential for Porsche, so how does the Taycan fare in this department?

Porsche Invents Another Pointless Record With the Taycan

It’s another record for Porsche, but the attempt does have its merits

Anything can be turned into a world record these days, and you don’t have to look far to see where that’s happening. 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.

We Drove 8 Electric Cars Over 1200 Miles in Real Conditions So You Don’t Have To

As it turns out, not all electric cars are created equal

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. Long story short, picking your next electric car might leave you scratching the top of your head. We get it.

Porsche’s Second Electric Car Delayed By At Least a Year

Don’t Expect to See the Taycan Cross Turismo in 2020

When we first saw the Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo Concept back in 2018, the expectation was set that it would launch in late 2020. Once the Porsche Taycan launched, and we knew Porsche had perfected its technology (if that’s what you would call less than 250 miles of range), we really expected the Cross Turismo to come quickly after, as expected in 2020. As it turns out, Porsche has been forced to delay the Cross Turismo, but according to Porsche, it’s not a casualty of the Pandemic.

We hope to see this on the street ASAP

EVs don’t get a lot of attention from tuners and for good reasons. Few electric cars on the market can claim and back up dynamic driving and there’s no point in dressing up a Nissan Leaf in a Liberty Walk widebody kit, is there?

But which car is quicker in a quarter-mile race? Let’s find out with CarWow, which recently put together a drag race between the two.
