Taycan keeps true to Porsche's tradition of using names that people will mispronounce more than a few times before getting it right. The name may not mean much to us, but according to Porsche, Taycan means "lively young horse". "Our new electric sports vehicle is strong and dependable, said Porsche Chairman Oliver Blume". To put it in context: This is a vehicle that can do zero to sixty miles per hour in only 3.2 seconds. "Multiple jump starts are possible in succession without loss of performance", Porsche says.
Stefan Weckbach, Head of the BEV Model Series at Porsche, recently said that they want to make their first all-electric vehicle feel "like a real Porsche." The big drain of maximum power can tax the charging (or discharging) system of an electric powertrain and hinder performance.
Porsche's original goal had been to spend three billion euro ($3.53bn) on electromobility by 2022. Exactly when that'll translate to cars arriving on American roads hasn't been shared, though we'd expect a late 2019 debut for that.

The 54-second video was taken by Alexis Hewitt, who has said was asleep on a beach towel next to Weinman when the commotion began. Weinman on Good Morning America said the incident left her upset emotionally exhausted and with her neck and back hurting.
The Taycan will compete against Tesla's Model S sedan.
Second, driven in all-electric mode, the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid shows that Porsche has managed to retain its race-bred chops in an EV, largely down to a compliant but communicative adaptive suspension and an impeccably weighted steering feel.
Interest in the Taycan has already been huge, Porsche says, though sales aren't expected to kick off in the USA for some time yet.

Unfortunately though, it doesn't reveal much about the phone itself, other than the fact that it'll ship with a dual-camera setup. That smaller size and irregular resolution is expected, of course, due to the fact that the device features a physical keyboard.
The vehicle's battery will be able to travel 300 miles on a single charge based on measurements from the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC).
Zellmer adds that the prototype vehicle that recently lapped the company's Porsche Experience Center in Los Angeles - sometimes driven by celebrity guests such as Maroon 5 singer and auto buff Adam Levine - is a "close approximation" of the finished product.
Porsche is now revamping its Stuttgart plant, building a massive extension in order to prepare for electrification. It will have two highly capable electric motors, one powering the rear axle and the other the front axle.

He also asserted the islands belong to China and that Beijing is simply acting to defend the country's sovereignty. Ruan of CIIS said that the development of China-Japan ties will contribute to a more integrated Asia at large.
