The Taycan Turbo is the First All-Electric Porsche

It certainly won’t sound like a Porsche but the release of the all-new Taycan Turbo is a landmark moment for the German automaker. It is the brand’s first all-electric car. With an ultra-efficient 800 volt system, the upgraded Turbo S version of this silent killer cranks out 750 horses, making it one of the most powerful production Porsches. The 800 volt system also allows it to re-charge up to 80% in under 23 minutes with a full-charge driving range of 280 miles. Hitting 161 MPH with zero emissions—pretty darn cool.
