This supertoy, Porsche Taycan would be delivered in 2020. Industry experts said that Taycan is destined to become Tesla Model S`s first serious competitor. The market for selected few, but you can join anyway. It is function of your wallets. How deep?
Meanwhile, presentation of the first purely electric Porsche, the Taycan, is set to take place roughly at the same time begin next year.
Two permanently excited synchronous motors with an output of over 600 hp (440 kW) accelerate the four-door coupe to 62 mph in well under 3.5 seconds and to 124 mph in under twelve seconds.
Buyers will be offered a fast-charger that will provide the Taycan with enough charge in 15 minutes, enough for 250 miles.
Electric cars: how do they work?
Looking at the dynamic performance of Tesla and Rimac, we have a question: do these numbers mean that in the sport cars segment, electric cars have won an unconditional victory over V12 supercars and the like? There isn’t a clear answer now. Probably not.
Electric cars have more stability on curves due to a low center of gravity, more torque right from the start and more power, due to a higher number of motors (for example, Rimac C_Two is equipped with four electric motors, one for each wheel).
These cars have one significant flaw – they are very heavy, due to the weight of the batteries.
This is why the electric cars show their advantages when it comes to the dynamics on straight roads. Gasoline-powered vehicles are faster on the bends. Just look up the results at the Nürburgring Norschleife circuit, where V12s, V10s or flat-sixes are still ruling the ball.
This being said, in situations when pure speed and mileage… are secondary, electric cars are a great choice today. And they are only getting started.
