Porsche Taycan is an electric car manufactured by Porsche that was first shown as a concept named Mission E at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2015.

Porsche Taycan initial reaction

In 2019, the Taycan went up for pre-order, and 20,000 people placed an order without even knowing the final price. The high demand led Porsche to increase production for the Taycan.

Porsche announced that it is increasing the production capacity of the Taycan, its first all-electric car, after seeing high demand for the electric sports car.

“Taycan’s original production capacity was 20,000 units. This continues to be the requirement for the first year of production. By increasing its workforce by the end of the second quarter of 2020, Porsche is providing itself with the necessary flexibility to be able to produce more units if necessary.”

Porsche Taycan Review

In January, Electrek got to take the Taycan Turbo and Turbo S out for a test drive. Publisher Seth Weintraub visited the showroom in Atlanta. He called it the best Porsche ever.

So the Taycan, in all of its trims, is the kind of car that when you stop, people walk up to the car and swooooon. Some fans even follow you to take pictures while you are driving down the freeway. I imagine that as Porsche delivers more of these beauties, the excitement will be tempered somewhat. There are currently only around 200 delivered in the US out of a sold-out 30,000 expected worldwide over the next year or so. The Taycan is a sight to behold.

As I mentioned, my car was a bit of a Frankenstein, and the Turbo S car I had hoped to drive was riding on some tires slightly damaged during testing at the motor speedway. But the Turbo sans S was still more than enough car for me, and I got to see what it was like driving with 192-mile-range wheels.

Porsche Taycan price

The Porsche Taycan starts at $103,800 for the 4S model. The Turbo model starts at $150,900. The Turbo S model starts at $185,000.

Probably the biggest concern with Porsche’s Taycan is the car’s seemingly low EPA range, especially compared to other EVs in its class.
