Porsche Launches a New Electric Sports Vehicle that is Among the World’s Quickest

When it goes on sale this summer, Porsche’s new high-end electric sports vehicle will be among the fastest in the world, the German automaker said on Monday.

With the aid of a “launch control” button, the 1,093-horsepower Taycan Turbo GT can accelerate from zero to sixty miles per hour in 2.1 seconds, shattering two racetrack records for an electric vehicle. Additionally, according to Porsche, it is quite expensive, costing roughly $230,000.

On the tight Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit in Germany, the Taycan Turbo GT broke a world record for lap time. More recently, the Taycan Turbo GT with Weissach package won the title of fastest electric series-production car at the WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca in California, clocking in at 1:27.87 minutes.

In one race, the Taycan Turbo GT even defeated a Tesla Model S by eighteen seconds.

Model line vice president Kevin Giek stated,”The two records at Laguna Seca and on the Nordschliefe show what great track potential there is in the Taycan,”

“The overall package of accelerating and braking, cornering grip, aero dynamics, stability and fine-tuning has to be right. In the Taycan Turbo GT and the Taycan Turbo GT with Weissach package in particular, our engineers have achieved this in absolutely stunning fashion,” Giek said.

Preorders for the two Taycan Turbo GT variants are now being accepted. The Weissach Package, which forgoes the rear seats and other luxuries to reduce weight and accelerate acceleration by a tenth of a second, is an alternative to the conventional four-seat model.

In practically every parameter, the Turbo GT with Weissach package establishes new benchmarks. Porsche development driver Lars Kern stated, “These include acceleration and braking, an Attack Mode that’s easy to use and a power train designed for maximum traction and performance. The cornering grip levels are just as impressive.” It’s remarkable how controlled and agile they are.”

Pale Blue Metallic and Purple Sky Metallic are two of the six exterior colour options available for Porsche’s new luxury EV. It also coincides with a decline in the market share of battery-powered automobiles due to concerns about range, expense, and, for some, a yearning for the loud, noisy cars of the gas age.

Rivian unveiled a number of more compact and reasonably priced electric SUVs last week as a substitute for its more expensive R1T and R1S models. Additionally, Dodge debuted its first electric muscle vehicle last week with the all-new Charger, which keeps the gas-powered counterpart’s fast speed and aggressive sound.
