Porsche finally and officially unveiled its first fully electric sports car — a pair of handsome and fairly expensive 4-door EVs with the Taycan Turbo and Taycan S. US pricing is listed at $150,900 for the Taycan Turbo and $185,000 for the Taycan Turbo S. Canadian MSRP is $173,900 is for the Taycan Turbo and $213,900 for the Turbo S model. As Porsche puts it, “The Taycan links our heritage to the future. It carries forward the success story of our brand – a brand that has fascinated and thrilled people the world over for more than 70 years.” Seeing as Porsche will have spent close to 7-billion on electric mobility by 2022, we can see what they’re getting at. Both models get all-wheel drive, offering an electric motor up front with another at the rear. But it’s the insanely fast Turbo S that’ll turn heads, putting down a whopping 750-hp paired to Launch Control and sprinting to 100 km/h in just 2.8-seconds (the Taycan Turbo will make a respectable 650-hp). Come 2022, Porsche plans to add the Taycan Cross Turismo to the lineup. If the Taycans are any indication of Porsche’s future, we like where things are going.
