The Taycan isn’t just another new EV, it’s potentially a nail in the coffin of petrol-fuelled performance cars. Can Porsche pull it off? Well, let Top Gear Magazine’s Jack Rix take you through all the nooks and crannies of the £116k all-electric, Porsche Taycan Turbo.

Sooooooooooooo much nicer in those colours rather than the MissionE white. worship

I'm not a fan of the front lights but other than that. thumbsup

A Porsche Taycan turbo???
With no turbos, poor, very poor.
If you want to produce the car of the future drop old name tags.
Obviously a brilliantly engineered car, but I have no desire to own one.

Regardless of the name, it’s a stunning looking thing. And echoing the above, looks much better in any colour other than white.

Just give it 18 months for them to iron out the inevitable technical issues, and I’m in.

It is actually somewhat irrelevant - people with taste always start their configurations at "delete model inscription". Especially on the top models (which all manufacturers these days seem to ridiculously over-badge, allegedly because the far Eastern markets like it) Thumb

Looks to me like a Panamera that an elephant sat on.

Am I alone in questioning this elec car epidemic? An electric car is only carbon neutral at the point of consumption. The electricity is generated elsewhere (in UK 80% fossil fuel and nuclear).

Lithium is a finite resource, and not as green as claimed, according to a leading research agency:

"mass production of lithium carbonate is not environmentally sound, it will cause irreparable ecological damage to ecosystems that should be protected and that LiIon propulsion is incompatible with the notion of the 'Green Car'"

Hybrid and full-elec cars have advanced hugely - great to drive with ball-breaking grunt.

Maybe hitting 50 makes me more cynical..!
