2020 Porsche Taycan Ratings & Reliability
Porsche plans to take on Tesla with a new, all-electric sedan that promises the power, performance, and range to rival the Model S. The line launches with two versions: Taycan Turbo and Taycan Turbo S. The Taycan Turbo produces 616 hp in normal operation, but it can "overboost" to 670 hp for more aggressive acceleration. Porsche claims it can race to 60 mph in just three seconds. The Turbo S has a maximum output of 750 hp and a blistering-quick 0-60 mph time. The charging times can all be super-fast through a DC fast charger. In such a scenario the car will be able to charge from 5 percent to 80 percent in 22.5 minutes, according to the company. The range is said to be greater than 300 miles but an official EPA estimate is pending. Production will begin in late 2019, and Porsche dealers have started to take orders. The cheapest, $103,800 Taycan 4S, with 522 hp, will follow in spring 2020.
