2020 Porsche Taycan Turbo Review: Danger: High-Voltage

We officially live in the future: Porsche has introduced its first-ever EV performance car, and it hits harder than you can imagine. The 2020 Porsche Taycan Turbo is an electric sport sedan that competes with the likes of the Tesla Model S for anti-fossil fuel honors. Under the shapely exterior of the Taycan Turbo S, you'll find an AWD system and a couple of electric motors that belt out 616 horsepower, with an overboost function pushing that figure up to an insane 750 hp and 774 lb-ft of torque. The regular Turbo is still an impressive vehicle with up to 670 hp and 626 lb-ft of torque on tap. Being a Porsche, the Taycan Turbo offers excellent build quality, superior refinement, and a driving experience you're unlikely to forget, but at a cost you likely won't forget either.

Verdict: 🏁Is the 2020 Porsche Taycan Turbo sedan a good electric car?

Unlike its competitor, the Tesla Model S, which continues to experience teething problems with its innovative tech, the Porsche Taycan Turbo feels typically German, and by that, we mean overengineered, well thought out, and built like a concrete bomb shelter. Yes, it's a significant departure from what Porsche usually does, but we don't believe that will affect its reliability or overall long-term performance. From the outside it's a beautiful thing, and its cabin is unmatched in this segment. The Taycan Turbo also offers significantly more options and customizable features than its Tesla counterpart. On the road, it's a blast to drive fast, but it's also a compliant cruiser when needed. The Tesla offers more range, but it's a trade-off we're willing to accept. After all is said and done, the fact that this amazing car has a Porsche badge on the hood seals the deal.
