2023 Porsche Macan EV

The upcoming Porsche Macan EV was ambushed by the paparazzi while charging its batteries

New spy footage captures the Macan EV doing cold-weather testing, accompanied by two Cayenne pilot cars. It also seems like the test prototype is experiencing difficulties in the cold, snowy climate – something Porsche is currently addressing as the vehicle nears production.

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.

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.

The Porsche IPO Isn't happening Just Yet

The Porsche IPO Isn’t happening Just Yet

Porsche’s IPO plans have been put on the back burner for now, however, should it be offered in the future, the German Marques valuation might exceed that of its parent VW

If there’s one brand that’s catapulted EV ambitions within the Volkswagen Group, it has to be Porsche. While Audi may have been the first to bring their e-Tron to market, it wasn’t until the Taycan came along that several brands within the VW Group started making the shift to electric mobility.

The Porsche 718 Cayman EV Won't Lose That Mid-Engine Driving Dynamic

The Porsche 718 Cayman EV Won’t Lose That Mid-Engine Driving Dynamic

Porsche is, quite literally, setting the standard for electric sports cars

When Porsche revealed the electric Mission R Concept, it was billed as a preview of a one-maker racer, but it also previewed – to a small extent – what we can expect from the upcoming electric Porsche 718. In fact, the Mission R Concept was based on a highly modified version of the current 718’s chassis and even featured similar dimensions to the current road-going sports cars. And it’s because of this car that the next-gen electric 718 Cayman and Boxster will set the standard for how a modern sports car can transition into electrification without losing what matters the most – its driving dynamic.

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

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.

The Invincible Porsche 911 GT3 RS Gets Beaten By A... Volkswagen Beetle?!?!

The Invincible Porsche 911 GT3 RS Gets Beaten By A... Volkswagen Beetle?!?!

Can a 1972 Beetle with an electric powertrain beat a stock 991 Porsche 911 GT3 RS on the drag strip?

The Porsche 911 GT3 RS is arguably one of the best internal combustion-engined cars on the drag strip. It has even beaten the likes of the Audi R8 Spyder. So, why even bother to put it up against an old-school, 1970s Volkswagen Beetle? Well, because this Beetle has been electrified and makes 450 horses! The Porsche makes more horsepower, but can the instant torque of the Beetle prove to be too much for the sports car?

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

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.

RUF Made A 911 EV Long Before Porsche And Everyone Forgot About It

RUF Made A 911 EV Long Before Porsche And Everyone Forgot About It

RUF actually made the first fully electric 911, before Porsche even considered it. They called it the eRUF Model A

Porsche is a brand mostly known for the 911 – a car everyone seems to have the habit of trying to reimagine these days. RUF has been quite successful at doing that and, even before Porsche started dabbling with the idea of a hybrid/electric 911, RUF went on to make their own – the eRUF Model A.

The Electric Porsche 911 Might Look Wildly Different

The Electric Porsche 911 Might Look Wildly Different

EV tech gives designers more freedom, so what does that mean for the most iconic car of them all?

Electric sports cars aren’t exactly a thing yet. Sure, you’ve got the currently non-existent Tesla Roadster 2.0 and plenty of hypercars, but the closest we have to a genuine sports car is the Tesla Model S Plaid or the Porsche Taycan. Transitioning the everyday family car or even SUVs to all-electric drive is easy enough – relatively speaking – but when it comes to sports cars, things like weight and driving dynamics are just as important as power. Having too much of one and not enough of the other isn’t an acceptable compromise, and this is why we don’t have an Electric Porsche 911. Eventually, however, it’ll be possible, and when it is, the freedom that comes with EV tech could drastically change the iconic 911 forever.

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.

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.
