About the Porsche Taycan
If you were to ask an average person what comes to mind when they think of the Porsche brand, they will most likely think of legendary, performance-bred sports cars. While the brand’s heritage can trace its roots back to iconic sports cars such as the 911, it may come as a surprise to learn that the two best selling models in the Porsche lineup are the Macan and Cayenne SUVs. Introduced in 2002, the larger Cayenne has helped establish Porsche as a leader in the luxury SUV segment. As the smallest Porsche SUV, the Macan holds the honor of the best selling Porsche model in the lineup.Having trouble deciding which of these Porsche SUVs are the best fit for your lifestyle? Sewickley Porsche is here to help with this helpful comparison guide which highlights the key differences and strengths of both the Macan and Cayenne. Let’s take a closer look.
Porsche Taycan Features
Two of the most vital aspects of electromobility are charge times and range distance. In an effort to revolutionize electric driving, the Porsche Taycan doubles the standard charging voltage to 800 volts. As a result, the Taycan delivers shorter charge times and lower vehicle weight thanks to the use of thinner-gauge copper wires in its charging system. In fact, you will have the ability to travel more than 300 miles on a single charge and only 15 minutes are needed to recharge for another 250 miles of range. Revolutionizing everyday practicality for an electric vehicle, the Taycan will debut with an innovative inductive charging capability. Using a coil installed within the garage floor, all the driver has to do is park the car over it for power to be seamlessly transferred wirelessly to the coil’s counterpart located in the underbody.
Each element of the exterior design of the Taycan has been carefully crafted to be instantly recognizable as a Porsche. Iconic qualities of Porsche sports cars were used in the design of the Taycan such as a low-slung 51.5-inch roofline to help give the vehicle an unmistakable presence on the road. Eye-catching air intakes and outlets on the front, sides, and rear highlight the body’s comprehensive flow-through design. At the front, dynamic matrix LED headlights with Porsche’s signature four-point design hover within the air intakes. 21-inch wheels in the front and 22-inch wheels in the back give the Porsche Taycan a confident stance and superior gripping performance.
Putting the driver at the center of attention, the interior of the Porsche Taycan places great emphasis on functionality. Through the use of an innovative eye-tracking system, camera sensors always know precisely which instrument the driver is looking at. Five OLED round instruments are arranged vertically on a flat, free-standing panel and follow the movements of the driver with that is referred to as a parallax effect. Incorporating cockpit design elements from the very first 911, a broad holographic display can be activated by waving your hand. You’re also able to change or monitor the car’s functions from your smartphone or tablet using Porsche Car Connect with Over the Air and Remote Services.
According to current projections, the Porsche Taycan is anticipated to go on sale in 2019. Stay tuned with Sewickley Porsche for further updates, news, and events surrounding the upcoming release of the Porsche Taycan.
