“Obviously, an Electric Vehicle doesn’t need a turbocharger to reach supercar acceleration,” said Park Place Porsche Dallas General Manager Patrick Huston. “Since the first Porsche 911 Turbo was launched in 1974, “Turbo” has become a sub-brand, a nomenclature for the fastest models in each Porsche model. Make no mistake, the Taycan is 100-percent Porsche. It looks, drives, and responds unmistakably Porsche. It handles corners like a true sports car, but it’s very comfortable on long drives. And it’s one of the fastest recharging EVs on the market.”
Jordan Mizrach, General Manager Porsche Grapevine
“The evening was truly exhilarating. The Taycan is a transformational addition to the Porsche family. Most electric cars have a single-speed direct-drive gearbox, but the Taycan’s rear axle uses a two-speed setup for improved acceleration and range. But regardless of its power plant, the Taycan handles like you expect a Porsche to handle. While the acceleration might be a bit more stimulating initially, the ride and drive are exactly what you expect from Porsche. And it’s one of the fastest recharging EVs on the market today.”
Pronounced “Tie-KHAN,” the four-door Turbo S sports sedan will go from 0-to-60 mph in 2.8 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph and a driving range of 192 miles (201 miles for the Turbo) all with the incomparable handling, dependable quality and world-class styling of a Porsche.
While an Electric Vehicle doesn’t really need a turbocharger to reach supercar acceleration, Porsche chose to maintain the Turbo and Turbo S branding for the Taycan. Since the first Porsche 911 Turbo was launched in 1974, “Turbo” has become a sub-brand, a nomenclature for the fastest models in each Porsche line.
