Here’s What Makes The Porsche Taycan 4 Cross Turismo So Great

Porsche recently invited FlatSixes to drive its latest creation, the all-electric Taycan 4 Cross Turismo. As great as the standard Taycan sedan is, we actually prefer the wagon version, as it gives up very little in dynamic enjoyment, while providing much more daily livability for you and your family. In addition to hauling butt, you can also haul everything you need for a long weekend away, or even a cross-country road trip for four adults and maybe even a dog. Other companies are trying to bu...

Worried About Charging Your Taycan? It’s Getting Easier Everyday

Photo credit: Electrify America One of the objections to buying an electric car, such as the Porsche Taycan, I rear regularly is the lack of public DC fast charging. While it's only ever really critical for longer road trips, the North American EV buyer still wants to know that they can take a road trip and not get stranded. Thanks to efforts from Electrify America and others that's becoming less of an issue. In fact, Electrify America chargers are the chargers ideal for the Taycan. They suppor...

Porsche makes its case for an all-electric Taycan wagon

Porsche has always gone its own way when it comes to creating new vehicles. It is, after all, the company that continues to stick to the wacky idea that putting the weight of an engine in the rear of a sports car is a great idea. (It is!) So, bucking the crossover trend to create an all-electric, soft-roading wagon with just 20 more millimeters of clearance than their popular electric Taycan sedan isn’t out of character for the brand. Instead, it’s another example of how Porsche approaches elect...

Porsche Taps Science Guy To Explain The Taycan Electric Sports Sedan

The charismatic bow tie enthusiast, Bill Nye (science guy), has been inspiring younger generations since, well, since my generation was a younger generation. His interesting delivery style and an uncanny ability to make the science seem both palatable and interesting at the same time is the key to his success. If you need something high tech and science-y explained in a way that an average Joe like me can understand it, Nye is your — well, he's your guy. It only seems natural, then, that Porsch...

Review: Porsche's $80,000 Taycan EV has fewer features than its 6-figure siblings - but it's just as special

2021 Porsche Taycan. Kristen Lee Porsche recently launched a more affordable version of the Taycan EV with a $79,900 starting price. The standard Taycan only has one electric motor and is rear-wheel drive. The standard Taycan is just as good as the $144,000 Taycan model I'd previously driven. See more stories on Insider's business page. In January, Porsche unveiled the most affordable version of its Taycan EV sedan - called, simply, the Taycan. I wouldn't call it cheap - a $79,...

The Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo is the first electric station wagon available in Europe

Porsche is presenting the Taycan, the first electric station wagon available as standard. Porsche itself calls the model a "CUV" and had already presented a study of the new model in 2018.

Audi's new e-sports car in comparison: This is how the e-tron GT differs from the closely related Porsche Taycan

Audi's new e-tron GT electric sports car takes its platform and drive technology from the Porsche Taycan. However, the relationship is hardly noticeable from the outside. And the Ingolstadt company is also going its own way in the interior. The Ingolstadt hopeful has slightly less power than its platform brother from Porsche. But it gets a bit further on one battery charge and is less expensive. Visit the Business section of Insider for more stories. This is an automated machine translation o...

REVIEW: The $144,000 Taycan 4S is Porsche's first EV that pairs cosmic speed with eerie electric silence

2020 Porsche Taycan 4S. Kristen Lee/Business Insider The Taycan is Porsche's first EV and comes in three trims: the $104,000 4S, $151,000 Turbo, and $185,000 Turbo S. My 4S loaner came to $143,690 after options. On paper, Porsche's iconic gas-powered 911 Turbo S is faster. But in practice, the Taycan 4S feels like it has warp drive.

Long-distance driving in an all-electric Porsche

The big deal with electric cars is "range anxiety" -- when you're not sure if you're going to make it to your destination without running out of juice. Porsche put me in the new, all-electric Taycan and sent me from Toronto to Ottawa to see how it went. Did I get anxious? Find out in my story at AutoTRADER.ca. [Author: Jil McIntosh]
