Lightbulb Porsche Taycan Production Design Revealed



A member on TaycanEVOwners.com shared render images of what the Porsche Taycan may look like. This is the closest thing to production we have seen so far.

Check out the rest of the images here: Porsche Taycan Production Design Revealed

I really hope they change the front. It doesn't look like a Porsche. It looks like the car is crying and grimacing in pain.

Current:
2017 718 Cayman S

Previous:
2008 987 Cayman S
2001 986 Boxster

That's a pretty "click-baity" title. Says design is revealed, but really it's someone's idea which they rendered.

The additional image of the rear end (click through) is nasty. That ridiculous lower bumper looks like the arse end design has prolapsed.

Hope these renders are still not accurate.

I am confused. I understood the Tacan to be an all electric car so I was curious about the Tacan's basic specs; specifically range and charging rate. An article I found states it is "all electric" but also calls it a "Tacan Turbo". WTF? How can an all electric vehicle have a turbocharger or be associated with a turbine?


BTW, what is the projected maximum range and is it known how long a charge takes at reasonably available charging stations? All ultra important concerns.

There is no physical turbocharger. "Turbo" in this case simply refers to the trim level.

Thanks. That is very misleading. Guess I was being naive but would not have expected for Porsche to get sleazy with its marketing. The "Turbo" made me think it was a hybrid with a turbocharged engine.

They sorta started that with the Macan. Even the base Macan had a turbocharged engine, yet there was/is still a Macan Turbo: the highest performance option.

You shouldn't, I've owned two Porsche design toasters in the past & they both failed prematurely with very little use. Porsche toasters just aren't very reliable, the kettle & coffee maker are still doing well though.
