The Best Electric Family Cars for 2022
As of 2022, it’s safe to say that EVs are mainstream. With all major mass-market automakers offering multiple EVs in their portfolio, it is confusing to choose one. EVs, with their convenience and refinement, make for great family runabouts if the range isn’t a major concern, but, with a whole range of EVs to choose from, the decision-making process is getting increasingly difficult. So, here is a list of 10 EVs that we think should be on your list if you are on the lookout for an electric family car.
Fastest SUVs In The World
The general consensus is that SUVs are more practical vehicles than they are something that fills the adrenaline cravings. They’re also considered as big, bulky vehicles that can tow stuff or even be taken offroad. If you want the performance, you can get yourself sports cars or supercars, or even hot hatches, for that matter. But, there are some SUVs that can put even some of the world’s best sports cars to shame with their performance. Automakers are creating straight-line monsters that can achieve speeds of well over 180 mph despite their big builds, poor aerodynamic efficiency, and heavy curb weights. Here’s a list of the fastest SUVs in the world in 2022:
This 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet America Edition - Topless Thrills At a Steep Cost
Porsche offered its first open top model designed specifically for America back in 1952. It was a 356 Roadster and only 16 units were offered. 40 years later, the idea was revived with the launch of the 964 America Roadster. After another 30 years, Porsche brought back the idea and announced the 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet America. This time Porsche will build a total of 115 units and each one starts out at $184,920.
This Porsche 928 Restomod Blends Modern Power and Tech with Timeless Design
When Porsche launched the 918 in 1978 people were amazed. It had an unconventional design, a front-mounted V-8, and was Porsche’s only luxury grand tourer. In fact, Porsche never had a car like it before. The model was supposed to replace the 911, since Porsche thought the sports car reached the limits of its potential. Of course, that never happened, as the 911 is as iconic today as it ever was, and the 928 stayed in production for 17 years with more than 60,000 units produced. Despite many rumors, the car never had a proper successor, which is a shame if you ask us.
The Cheapest Porsche Money Can Buy In 2022
Porsche is a brand revered by auto enthusiasts around the world. Though the Stuttgart-based marque is best known for its 911 range which tends to fetch top dollar, especially the older cars, it makes them inaccessible to the masses. But, Porsche DNA has blessed a lot of other models over the years that you can buy without breaking the bank or selling your kidney. Here are our top Porsche picks for enthusiasts on a budget:
2022 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Turbo GT - Performance, Price, and Photos
This is the 2022 Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT, the most expensive and track-focused Cayenne ever made (period). The Cayenne of course was responsible for taking the sports SUV formula mainstream nearly two decades ago. Now if you’re not a Porsche fanboy, navigating the Porsche model range can be an incredibly taxing proposition. The Cayenne is no different. Offered in both traditional SUV and Coupe SUV body styles, you have a staggering 13 options to choose from and the Turbo GT (only offered as a Coupe) sits at the very top of that lineup.
The GT moniker is often reserved for some serious Porsches and it is the first time that the folks from Weissach have decided to use it on the Cayenne. So is it worthy of the GT nameplate? Let’s take a closer look at what Porsche has done to distinguish the Cayenne Turbo GT, not just the from rest of the Cayenne range, but also from other super-SUVs within the VW umbrella like the Lamborghini Urus, the Audi RS Q8, and the Bentley Bentayga.
Porsche Taycan by Jager - the Embodiment of Weight Loss Through Carbon Fiber
Naturally electric vehicles are heavier than combustion-powered vehicles due to the added weight of the battery. Take the Taycan for example, Porsche’s electric sedan has a weight in the 2,140 - 2,350 kilo (4,717 - 5,081 pounds). If that doesn’t sound like much to you, think that a Ram 1500 pickup truck has a weight of 4,798 pounds! Porsche managed to compensate for the extra weight with more power, but the Taycan is still on the high side of the fat scale.
Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2024 Porsche Macan EV’s Interior
There is no doubt about one thing: the future will be electric! Every automaker out there is focusing all its resources into developing more and more electric cars, and Porsche is no exception. After the Taycan and the announcement that the entire 718 lineup will be electric, the Macan will also be sold as an EV.
The model has been testing for quite some time now, but an official debut won’t happen until later in 2023. Now, however, we’re finally getting a look at the Macan EV’s interior for the very first time.
Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2024 Porsche Panamera
It was just earlier last month that we said that the Panamera will say goodbye to combustion engines for good. But, Porsche’s sports sedan will be around and co-exit with the Taycan, one last time. These latest spy shots of the 2024 Panamera though are all about the interior and how they overlap with its EV sibling.
The Porsche Taycan GTS Hockenheimring Edition Comes With a Unique Surprise
Porsche never offered a special edition based on the electric Taycan. Well, at least, not until now. Today the German company announced the Taycan GTS Hockenheimring Edition (don’t worry, we don’t know how to pronounce it either) - a special model that marks the 90th anniversary of the Hockenheimring - a motor racing circuit built in 1932, that, since 2019 it is also the home of the Porsche Experience Centre.
Brabus Gives The Porsche Taycan Turbo S The Sporty Look It Deserves
With a starting price of $186,350, the Porsche Taycan Turbo S doesn’t come cheap, but for that money, you get some impressive performance. It’s one of the fastest electric sedans on the market today and is capable of sprinting from 0 to 60 mph in under 2.5 seconds. Obviously, the performance credentials are in place, but could it look better? Brabus certainly thinks so, and that’s the focal point of its latest package of the Porsche Taycan Turbo and Turbo S.
2022 Manhart CRT 800
The Cayenne Coupe, like the entire Porsche lineup, is due for an update. However, that won’t happen until later in 2022, so, for now, we must work with what we have. Manhart decided to take the Cayenne Turbo Coupe under its wings and give it some serious improvements.
Its latest package, the CRT 800, not only makes the German SUV look better on the outside, but also adds a lot more power under the hood.
The 2023 Porsche 718 Boxster Spyder RS Is Just a Cayman GT4 RS With No Roof
It seems that Porsche has been very busy lately. Next to working on facelift versions for pretty much its entire lineup and preparing a hybrid 911, the Stuttgart-based company is also working on a more powerful version of the 718 Boxster Spyder.
The fact that this prototype was caught testing today should come as no surprise, as Porsche is already offering a Cayman GT4 RS. And, this spied Spyder RS is nothing more than just a roofless GT4 RS, albeit, with a few aerodynamic changes.
This Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo Sets a Guinness Record For The Highest Number Of Donuts
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
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.
