Following months of teasers, Porsche has announced the highly anticipated Taycan will be unveiled on September 4th at 3 p.m. CET (7 p.m. EST).
Since the company has already booked over 30,000 pre-orders, the Taycan will be unveiled simultaneously on three different continents. In particular, there will be events in Canada, China and Berlin, Germany. The company is also promising at least one guest star as Mark Webber will take part in the festivities.
Porsche is keeping detailed specifications under wraps, but the automaker previously confirmed the Taycan will have two electric motors that produce a combined output in excess of 592 hp (441 kW / 600 PS). This will enable the car to accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in less than 3.5 seconds and travel more than 310 miles (500 km) on a single charge in the New European Driving Cycle.
We can also expect less powerful variants which will be easier on the wallet. Nothing is official, but reports have suggested the entry-level Taycan will cost around $90,000 and have an 80 kWh battery pack. The model is also slated to have outputs of 322 hp (240 kW / 326 PS) and 376 hp (280 kW / 381 PS).
Buyers will larger budgets will reportedly be able to purchase a Taycan 4S which features all-wheel drive as well as a larger 96 kWh battery pack. It’s rumored to have outputs of 429 hp (320 kW / 435 PS) and 483 hp (360 kW / 490 PS).
Later down the road, there could be a Taycan Turbo S with around 724 hp (540 kW / 734 PS). There have also been rumors about a GTS variant, but little is known about it except that it could be a lightweight, rear-wheel drive model.
