The Taycan is powered by a 93-kWh battery and two electric motors. There’s one at the front axle and one at the rear axle so you have all-wheel drive that’s ready for rough New England winters. That’s the practical side of the Taycan, but on the performance side it posts extraordinary numbers.

The Taycan Turbo generates 670 horsepower with 626 pound-feet of torque that give it a 0-60 miles-per-hour time of only 3.0 seconds. If that’s not fast enough for you, then there’s the Taycan Turbo S which has 750 horsepower and 774 pound-feet of torque for a 0-60 miles-per-hour time of only 2.6 seconds. Top speed is 161 miles per hour and it can do a quarter mile in as little as 10.8 seconds. It has performance covered.

Legendary sports car maker Porsche has confirmed its first electric model, the Taycan four-door sports car, will be making its racing game debut in Gran Turismo Sport in a few weeks time.

As a result of a new partnership between Porsche and the Gran Turismo developer Polyphony Digital, the pure-electric Taycan (more specifically, the range-topping, 751bhp Turbo S variant) will be added to the PlayStation 4-exclusive game’s ever-expanding vehicle roster at some point in October 2019.

It won’t be the only high-performance Porsche destined for Gran Turismo Sport either. Coming to the title during the first half of 2020 is the car maker’s 917 Living Legend concept; a one-off design study that pays tribute to the legendary 917 endurance racing car.

Porsche: petrol-engined 911 has long future

The iconic Porsche 911 will’continue’to be petrol-powered beyond the next ten years, thanks to efficiency improvements to petrol engines and the use of synthetic fuels.

Porsche CEO Oliver Blume said: ‘I’m a big fan of the 911 and we will continue [with a petrol engine] as long as we are able to. The secret is to think about more efficient petrol engines and in 10 years’ time perhaps, the use of synthetic gasoline.

‘We are now in a very early period to do that, it’s still very expensive, but thinking 10 years ahead, it will be an option. For the 911, it fits perfectly.
