We are about 2 months away from the official launch of Porsche’s first all electric street car, the Taycan. In the lead up to the car’s official public unveiling, Porsche trotted one out to Brooklyn, New York to give potential consumers and EV heads a look at the thing. Porsche has already signed Neel Jani to drive the company’s Formula E racer in the 2019/20 season, and he was on hand to give the Taycan a proper flogging.
Jani on the drive: “Like our Formula E car, it has a Porsche drivetrain that is designed for performance and reliability. No matter whether it is a racing car or a series-production model, it is extremely important to drive many miles in the test phase and to gain experience with the vehicle.”
This is the Taycan’s final appearance as a “prototype” following similar events in China and Great Britain.
