This Widebody Porsche Taycan Rendering Will Scratch Your NFS Underground Itch

This Widebody Porsche Taycan Rendering Will Scratch Your NFS Underground Itch

This is what a Porsche Taycan could look like if it is featured in the next Need for Speed Underground game

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.

A Modern, Electric Porsche 928 Would Really Strengthen Porsche's EV Lineup

A Modern, Electric Porsche 928 Would Really Strengthen Porsche’s EV Lineup

A Brazillian Designer’s Vision Of A New Porsche 928 Might Be Foreshadowing a Future EV Flagship From Porsche

The Porsche 928 came in 1977 with the intention of succeeding 911. Although that never happened, the 2+2 gran tourer still left a mark and, even today, has a cult following. The recent transition to electrification on behalf of carmakers (Porsche included) suddenly created new opportunities for car companies to bring back iconic names. This is where ex VW designer Guilherme Knop, with help from CGI expert João Schendel, come in. Together, they created a hypothetical modern-day successor to the Porsche 928.

Do You Think The Porsche 911 GT2 RS Can Take Down The Taycan?

Do You Think The Porsche 911 GT2 RS Can Take Down The Taycan?

The Taycan has more powerful and has all the torque from the start, but it weighs almost 2,000 pounds more than the GT2 RS

Daniel Abt uploaded a video of two Porsches going up against each other on a drag strip. On one corner, there was the Porsche GT2 RS, and on the other, the Porsche Taycan Turbo S. The way drag races between internal combustion-engined cars and electric vehicles go these days, the initial assumption is that the Taycan will win. But this is as close as it can get. The Taycan is powerful, but also a lot heavier. The GT2 RS is lighter, but not as powerful as its electric sibling. Which car have you got your money on?

The Audi A4 E-Tron Could Strengthen Porsche's Lineup Too!

The Audi A4 E-Tron Could Strengthen Porsche’s Lineup Too!

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….

The Electric 718 Boxster Is Coming To Lead Porsche Into A New Era of Sports Cars

The Electric 718 Boxster Is Coming To Lead Porsche Into A New Era of Sports Cars

The Porsche 718 Boxster EV could debut within months as a concept ready for production

Electrification is a big deal and, eventually, every sports car that we know and love will lug around battery packs and motors instead of gas tanks and engines. It is, quite literally, an inevitability. That’s why rumors that the Porsche 718 is going electric make a lot of sense despite being largely unfounded. After all, it is the next logical step after the Taycan’s success since the 911 will be the last model of Porsche’s lineup to make the transition. We recently learned that Porsche decision-makers were weighing options on what to do with the next-gen 718, and it looks like a decision has been made, as new reports say an electric Porsche Boxster Concept is about to be revealed!

Porsche's Boxster EV Will Force Audi And BMW To Step Up Their Game

Porsche’s Boxster EV Will Force Audi And BMW To Step Up Their Game

Can the Electric Porsche 718 really kickstart the future of electric sports cars?

We already know that the Porsche 911 will most likely be the last of the brand’s cars to transition into an electric vehicle, and rightfully so, I might add. However, as of today, there aren’t any real electric sports cars on the market. I suppose you could argue that the new Tesla Roadster is a sports car, but for the sake of argument Tesla kind of stands on its own and who knows when the Roadster will really make production. Then you’ve got cars like the Audi E-Tron GT and its sister the Porsche Taycan, and while they are sporty and quick, it doesn’t exactly fit the sports car segment like a Porsche 718, Audi TT, or even the BMW Z4 and Toyota Supra twins. Oddly enough, there’s little official chatter of any cars in this segment going electric. Well, until now that is.

The Porsche Macan EV Might Not Be A Macan At All

The Porsche Macan EV Might Not Be A Macan At All

The Porsche Macan EV is a Macan, but it’s not a Macan, and it’ll beat out the Taycan in one “significant" area

Things escalated quickly between 2019 and 2020 over at Porsche, with the former bring news that the 2021 Porsche Macan will only be offered with an all-electric drivetrain. Of course, 2021 is here, and guess what? The electric Macan doesn’t even exist outside of Porsche’s walls. That’s because in early 2020, we learned that Porsche was thinking about a “double Macan” strategy in which it will update the current-gen Macan to sell alongside the next-gen electric Macan. It’s good news for those that don’t want to make the transition to electric go juice, but it also means the next-gen Macan had to be delayed. Now we’ve learned something new, and it seems that the Macan EV might not be a Macan at all. Wait… what?

The Fate of the Porsche 718 Draws Near As Porsche’s Decision Makers Weigh Options

Like the Porsche 918’s Successor, the time might not be right for an electric 718

After news that the fabled Porsche 918 Successor is delayed until at least 2025 because the technology isn’t there yet, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that Porsche is on the fence about pushing the 718 Cayman and Boxster into EV territory too. The good news is that we’ll know in the next few months, but the bad news is it will still be a while before it actually happens if it happens at all.

This Isn't An All-Electric Porsche 356 A, But It's Probably The Next Best Thing

This Isn’t An All-Electric Porsche 356 A, But It’s Probably The Next Best Thing

It’s still under development and it won’t be cheap

Watt Electric Vehicles is not the most sonorous name in the EV industry but looking at its latest project, the company seems to have the potential to become a strong player in the EV restomod niche. The reason behind this statement is as cool as they come: a Porsche 356-inspired EV with a mid-mounted electric motor.

2021 Porsche Taycan by Techart

2021 Porsche Taycan by Techart

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 Huge $83 Million Investment In Rimac Could Make For An Interesting Future

Porsche’s Huge $83 Million Investment In Rimac Could Make For An Interesting Future

The German automaker wants to tap into Rimac’s technical expertise

Porsche has raised its ownership stake in Rimac, going from owning a minority share of 15.5 percent to 24 percent. The deal cost Porsche €70 million, or around $83.2 million based on current exchange rates. This is the third time the German automaker has invested in its Croatian company. Back in 2018, Porsche secured a 10 percent minority stake in Rimac before that share grew to 15.5 percent in 2019. Other automakers have also bought into Rimac, specifically Hyundai and Kia. The two Korean brands invested €80 million, or around $95.1 million, as part of a technical partnership that would give birth to a pair of high-performance electric vehicles.

Porsche Could Build a Taycan Coupe, Convertible, and Sport Turismo

It’s only a matter of time before Porsche turns the Taycan into a family of EVs

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. Porsche has made clear its plans to have an 80 percent electric lineup by 2030.

2021 Porsche Taycan Art Car

Porsche pulls a BMW and introduces a Taycan-based art car

By introduces we mean presents, because this colorful Taycan is not part of Porsche’s lineup. Instead, the car will be auctioned through RM Sotheby’s between April 6 and April 13, with all the proceedings heading to the Suisseculturale Sociale non-profit organization which seeks to support the COVID-19 pandemic-struck art scene from Switzerland.

Drifting in a RWD Porsche Taycan? We're Not So Sure

Drifting in a RWD Porsche Taycan? We’re Not So Sure

Can this be the most engaging EV?

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?
