It won't be long now until Porsche unveils its Tesla fighter. With over 20,000 buyers waiting to get their hands on one, Porsche, it seems, has their work cut out for them.
But before the Taycan makes its official debut, Porsche has released new design sketches of the upcoming EV without any disguise whatsoever. That's right, Porsche is giving us a first look at the sports EV without any camouflage.
First starting out life as the Mission E concept back in 2015, the design of the Taycan relatively remains faithful to the original car. It keeps the long flowing silhouette, as well as the signature headlights up front. Changed, however, is the front bumper design which now comes with bigger intakes, as well as a more defined chin spoiler.
The 959-inspired rear also appears to have been carried-over from the concept, albeit cleaner. The single strip taillight design gives the Taycan a sleek look while the distinct rear diffuser gives the EV a more purposeful finish.
As mentioned before, the Taycan will supposedly produce over 600 PS via a pair of electric motors. It can allegedly reach 0 – 100 km/h in only 3.5 seconds and sprint from 0 – 200 km/h in 12 seconds. Torque output, on the other hand, is expected to be at the 1,000 Nm mark.
The all-new Porsche Taycan could make its official debut at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show this September.
