Alex Roy, an American journalist, has recently revealed Porsche’s naming structure by posting a picture of a letter from the company on Twitter. He reportedly pre-ordered the slot for the pure-electric Porsche and revealed that the models will be named Taycan, Taycan 4S, and Taycan Turbo.
Earlier in 2018, the company confirmed the car will be launched in Australia in 2020. As per reports, one model of Taycan will be powered by a pair of permanently-excited synchronous motors with more than 440kW and thereby help the car accelerate to 100km/h in under 3.5 seconds. Moreover, the battery present will be able to supply enough current for continuous launches, and thus making it perform like a proper supercar. When the battery goes down, a 350kW charging capable will be supported and delivers 80 percent of charge in less than 20 minutes.
Stefan Weckbach, who is in charge of developing the Taycan range quoted, “The Taycan drives like a Porsche, looks like a Porsche, and feels like a Porsche – it just happens to have a different type of drive. Take the under-floor battery, for example. It gives the Taycan a very low centre of gravity, even lower than with the 911.”
