Hello Porsche Taycan: Tesla-rivaling Mission E gets its launch name
09 June, 2018, 05:11 | Author: Regina Silva
Porsche makes different versions of all its cars, ranging from from fast to extremely fast, and it's expected to do the same with the Taycan. The Model S can do its Ludicrous Mode party trick a few times before needing to cool down, but Porsche has said its Taycan will be able to maintain its performance both in sprints and for track days without issue.
Meaning "lively young horse", in a reference to the animal on the company's crest, the Taycan will become Porsche's first electric sports vehicle when it enters production next year.
In contrast, Tesla's most potent Model S can do 0-60 miles per hour in 2.4 seconds.
The Mission E concept vehicle is a big part of the special exhibition as Porsche presents it as the "the future of the sports car". Some of the spotted cars have been wearing exhaust exit surrounds that were fake and fitted to hide the car's identity. Porsche is likely to follow its current strategy for gas and hybrid cars with is all-electric models, though, and offer varying degrees of performance under badges like "S" and "GTS" in the future. But the powertrain has been confirmed: Two permanently activated synchronous motors generating more than 600 horsepower combined. The company says the vehicle can hit 60 mph in "well under" 3.5 seconds and 124 mph miles per in less than 12 seconds. The variants, of which there is likely to be three, will vary from around 400bhp up to 600bhp. It also plans a crossover version of the auto, as previewed by the Cross Turismo concept that made its debut at March's Geneva Motor Show.
