Porsche’s launched its first fully-electric sports car.
The Stuttgart supercar maker has gone all high tech for the future with its Taycan series.
It’s also broken away from its traditional coupe two-seater models and designed the Taycan as a four-door sports saloon to give wider appeal.
That also leaves more room to fit the advanced 800 volts power pack which generates a thumping 560kw or 761ps overboost through twin front and rear motors, shooting from rest to 62mph in 2.8secs in the Taycan Turbo S version and a range of 257 miles, with a limited top speed of 161mph.
A high power charging network plugged into for five minutes will give it a 62 miles range and reaches 80% of charge in 22.5mins.
It launches as two models, Taycan Turbo and Turbo S from £1115,858 or £138,826, with deliveries beginning in January.
While retaining the visual Porsche look, inside its a completely new assault on the senses with a free-standing curved instruments screen inc. a 10.9inch infotainment display, fewer switches or voice commands instead and upholstery from recycled materials.
It will come with a three-years charging card system for nationwide use and a single bill to the My Porsche account.
