The Porsche Taycan debuts at Goodwood as part of the Porsche Triple Demo Run, in which the Taycan will make three appearances on three continents.
Porsche adds an electric sports car to its line-up on the legendary Goodwood hill. The debut is part of the Porsche Triple Demo Run, in which the Taycan will make three appearances on three continents in three weeks. At Goodwood, the prototype competed with a union flag graphic on the roof and Mark Webber at the wheel.
Formula One driver Mark Webber reports that he is impressed by the acceleration of the Taycan "The Taycan's power delivery is awesome," reports the experienced Formula One driver. "I took part in this event in a Porsche 911 GT2 RS two years ago, so I already knew that it all comes down to power and traction. But, even for a thoroughbred racing driver like me, it is amazing how the Taycan - even though it's still a prototype - accelerates off the start and out of the corners," says Webber.
Works driver Neel Jani will get behind the wheel of the Taycan for the season finale of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship taking place on the 13th and 14th of July 2019 in New York City, completing the Taycan's triple visits to China, the U.K. and the U.S - the biggest markets for Porsche's first all-electric sports car.
The Taycan will be launched in Singapore early next year. As to be expected from the Porsche brand, the development goals for the 600bhp all-wheel drive vehicle included circuit performance and multiple acceleration runs, as well as a battery range suitable for everyday use. The car's 800V architecture will enable short charging times and the lithium-ion battery will boast a capacity of around 90kWh.
