Schmee: “Is the Porsche Taycan Turbo S the Electric Car for Me to Buy?”

My first drive in the new Porsche Taycan Turbo S! The first fully electric Porsche is of great interest to me as one that could potentially be the EV for me to buy. To find out what it’s like, join me for a full speed run on the Autobahn and a complete tour inside out.

The Turbo S is the flagship model in the line-up, seen here running smaller wheels with winter tyres, and thanks to its 2 electric motors with one on each axle, in overboost manages a huge 761PS along with 1,050nm. That clearly bodes well for some incredible performance but most strikingly for me is the experience of the drive, a Porsche through and through.

Kicking off with a quick introduction at Hockenheim, let’s get out on the de-restricted sections of the German Autobahn to feel the power before heading to a twisty section to get more of a dynamic feeling. Upon return there’s a lot of technology to run through including a vast array of displays and settings to be found in the infotainment.
