The Porsche Taycan

This is Porsche’s first all-electric car, previewed by the Mission E concept way back in 2015. A car we’re expecting to re-write the rule book on what an EV is capable of. A torch-bearer for the future of the supercar. No pressure.

Interesting Facts

  • The car has 4 touch screens
  • Top Gear used a Mamba Green Taycan in their online review
  • You can drive from Hampshire to Paris, France and part way back on one charge
  • The sensation of combustion engine braking can be turned on or off
  • 90% of the braking is done by the motors (not the brakes), so the wheels and calipers don’t get dirty as often! Porsche showcase this by fitting white brake calipers and coating the brake discs to avoid them rusting through lack of use! The car also harvests the energy when braking and puts it back in the batteries
  • In the winter months, you get instant heat as the car does not have to wait for the engine to warm up. In fact, you can warm the car up remotely via the mobile phone app, including the heated steering wheel
  • This car is just 0.6 secs off a Formula 1 car from 0-62
  • You can chose between 4 different Sat Navs in the car: Porsche, Google, Apple Maps or Waze
  • The car has active aero front and rear. The rear spoiler has 4 positions but raises fully under heavy braking to act as an air brake
  • The car has 3 suspension height settings plus full lift for speed bumps
