The upcoming Porsche Taycan has been spotted in Copenhagen and looks like it's going under final round of testing. The test-mule has been spotted wearing minor camouflage giving us a hint of being close to production. The new Porsche Taycan will be driven by two permanent synchronous electric motors that will churn out 600 bhp and the high voltage lithium-ion batteries powering the motors have enough juice for 500 kms. The motors would also store the energy and charge the batteries during deceleration or lateral movements which at times can drive the car without actually using the batteries. It will take under 3.5 seconds for the Porsche Taycan to do a 0-100 kmph sprint and through fast charging, it will just take four minutes to top it up for 100 km.

2020 Porsche Taycan price and specs: quicker and cheaper than a 911

The Porsche Taycan– the German brand's first pure electric car – will undercut the iconic 911 Carrera by almost $40,000, accordng to official Australian pricing announced tonight.

The much-anticipated Porsche Taycan will be offered in Australia from $191,000 plus on-road costs for the entry-level 4S, with the electric vehicle completing the 0-100 dash in a claimed 4 seconds flat – 0.2 seconds faster than the equivalent 911.

The Taycan 4S is powered by a 79.2kWh Performance Battery producing an output of 320kW/640Nm, and offering up-to 390kW on overboost. It provides a claimed 365 kilometres of range and is capable of a top speed of 250km/h.

The 93.4kWh Performance Plus battery can also be optioned on the 4S (pricing for this model is yet to be announced), offering an additional 40kW and 10Nm in normal driving conditions, but stretching to a maximum of 420kW on overboost. Claimed driving range is 414km.

While the power output and top speed are the same between the Taycan Turbo and Turbo S models (460kW / 260km/h), the Turbo S gets an additional 200Nm of torque (exactly the same total torque produced by a Mercedes-Benz A180) for a maximum of 1050Nm. Range is reduced to 405km.

All three variants of the Taycan receive their own individual set of brakes, starting at 360mm cast iron rotors mated to 6-piston calipers for the 4S. Both the Turbo and Turbo S receive 10-piston calipers, though the Turbo receives 415mm coated brake discs, whereas the Turbo S will be fitted with 420mm ceramic rotors.

More affordable rear-wheel-drive Porsche Taycan lands in China

A new base-model Porsche Taycan has debuted in China, devoid of additional badges like its 4S, Turbo, and Turbo S siblings.

This new Porsche Taycan model only has a single electric motor powering the rear wheels, unlike the all-wheel-drive models currently available to buy in Australia.

While the most affordable Taycan currently available in Australia is the 4S, which starts at $191,000 plus on-road costs, the new base model has been priced from 888,000 yuan – or roughly AU$182,747.

Range is claimed to be 414km and 489km on the Performance Plus battery, based on NEDC testing.

The rear-wheel-drive Taycan does the 0-100km/h sprint in 5.4 seconds, or 1.4 seconds slower than the all-wheel-drive Taycan 4S with the same battery pack.
