It’s Official: 2020 Porsche Taycan Will Debut On September 4th

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.

    This will be a game changer. I hope the design is better than its sibling Audi E-tron GT.

    I like how the camo has “soul” on it. Us car guys define the heart and soul of a car as the engine. They can’t change that fact that electric cars don’t have this characteristic!

    Performance wise from the videos it will be a beast no doubt!

    • TheBelltower

      Not really a “fact” now is it? Some might say that EV’s have more “soul” because it offers a more direct connection to the wheels and the road.

      • Dark Rebel

        Not true! Electric cars do not offer an analog experience. Everything is done through the “wire.” I’m sure they have done a good job with their EPS though. I am not dissing this vehicle just saying that they won’t be successful with their mandated corporate pandering in defining a cars “soul.” Car enthusiasts although a small group still like our ICE’s. People who don’t know what’s under their hood will love this beast though.

          I like certain ICE’s too. But there is no such thing as an “analog” driving experience unless you are in a buggy being pulled by a horse. In an ICE car, it’s the commotion and flaws that people consider to be “soul.”

    cant wait to see this!

  • B.Stokes

    I wonder if Porsche is going to do the usual base model that includes absolutely nothing at all and if you want any additional features that your standard Kia has like power seats you’re going to have to pay $,$$$ for them.

  • OS

  • DaruniaG

  • wtvlol

    good luck Tesla.

    • HD

      This is a $150k car, Tesla produces way different models for much less. They don’t compete.

      • Jarosław Kotowicz

        So you really think that there are no people that bought a model S because there was nothing more expensive and nothing better?

    • illogicalPotato

      Is that a Porsche badge on the hood? I guess it is then.

  • JRP

    I am pretty sure everyone knows what it looks like already. Porsche sucks at camo.

  • Jay_Sam
