How Fast Can the Porsche Taycan Go in MPH?

January 14th, 2021 by

Answer: The Porsche Taycan can go from zero to 60 mph in 2.4 seconds. This makes it the 3rd fastest EV on the planet.

The 2020 Porsche Taycan is a sleek sports sedan that lives up to its hype. This high-performance sports sedan not only offers precise handling, but it also has incredible acceleration going from 0-60 mph in 2.4 seconds (0nly the Lamborghini Huracán Performante and the Porsche 918 Spyder are faster). In addition, the Porsche Taycan Turbo S has a top speed of 162 mph. However, there is much more to the Porsche Taycan Turbo S besides its top-notch acceleration. 

The Taycan is the first generation EV and comes with an 800-volt electrical system and a two-speed transmission; which is the reason why it has a very fast recharge time and superb acceleration, respectively. The Porsche Taycan was developed to challenge the Tesla Model S. While Tesla has access to a vast network of charging stations, the Porsche Taycan is all about performance. 

There is no question that the Porsche Taycan is a fast car and can deliver more mileage on a single charge than many older generation more expensive Porsche models.

The all four-wheel Taycan comes with enormous horsepower that varies from 522 hp (4S with base battery) to 750 hp (Turbo S). However, truth be told, this enormous acceleration is only for a few seconds and then the output drops to prevent the heat from damaging the driveshaft and other electrical components.

The unique two-speed transmission which shifts during driving goes unrecognized because of the smoothness. But when it comes time to accelerate, all you do is activate the launch control and the Taycan takes off like a rocket making most other vehicles look lethargic. So far in testing, the battery charge has not depleted significantly so the Taycan can maintain a consistent performance.

Besides the breathtaking exterior and speed, this fast electric machine comes with four seats, curved glass panels, a Bluetooth integration system, a standard three-screen cockpit, and much more. If you are interested in the Porsche Taycan visit or call Porsche West Palm Beach.
