Porsche takes on Tesla with a new, all-electric sedan that promises the power, performance, and high-tech vibe to rival the Model S.
Two high-end versions--the Turbo and Turbo S--are available as well as a less expensive 4S, with a starting price of $103,800.
The standard battery has a capacity of 79 kWh, and the optional one has 93 kWh.
Charging times can be quick through a DC fast charger.
In those specific venues, the car will be able to charge from 5 percent to 80 percent in 22.5 minutes, according to Porsche.
The Taycan's EPA estimated range is about 203 miles for the 4S version, significantly shorter than Tesla's.
Our brief experience indicates that the Taycan is very quick and rides comfortably, but interior ambience is less impressive than it is in other Porsche models.
