The New Electric Porsche Taycan Will Drive Like A 911

We have seen many spy shots and renderings of what we think the new Porsche Taycan will look like. Coupling that with the Mission E concept, it is pretty certain as to what Porsche’s all-new, all-electric performance car will be like aesthetically. There is one thing that nobody outside of Porsche knows yet, though, and that is how will this seemingly revolutionary car be like behind the wheel.

We all know that Porsche is arguably the best at what they do, making sportscars. This, according to Porsche CEO Oliver Blume, will be no different for the next generation of electric Porsche products. In fact, Blume stated that the Taycan will “drive like the 911” whilst speaking to Handelsblatt recently. As claims go, that is a pretty big one

“I was recently on our racetrack in Italy. And I’m still excited. We have the advantage in electric mobility that we have a lower center of gravity with the battery than the 911. That means the vehicle is even more saturated on the road. In addition, we regulate five times faster than a combustion engine, have no clutch and no drive shaft. This, together with our chassis know-how, brings a huge advantage, especially in the driving dynamics in the bends. In addition, unlike other vehicles on the market, we have a gearbox that delivers even more thrust from 150 kilometres per hour.”

We will see the Taycan at the up and coming 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, and generation of the EV is set to be given the green banner around the same time. "The yearly creation will be well more than 20,000. However, we don't have a number yet. This year, we begin gradually with under 10,000 units," said Blume. 

From what Porsche are stating, the Taycan is set to change the assessment of pretty much every individual who isn't persuaded about electric autos when they drive it. As usual, the truth will surface eventually exactly how stunning or not the Taycan will be.
