In preparation, the vehicle previously operating under the working title 'Mission E' has now been given its official name: Taycan. The name can be roughly translated as 'lively young horse', referencing the imagery at the heart of the Porsche crest, which has featured a leaping steed since 1952.

"Our new electric sports car is strong and dependable; it's a vehicle that can consistently cover long distances and that epitomises freedom," Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG, explains. The Eurasian name also signifies the launch of the first electric sports car with the soul of a Porsche. Porsche announced the name for its first purely electric model as part of the '70 years of Porsche Sports Cars' ceremony.

Two permanently activated synchronous motors generating a system output of over 600 horses accelerate the electric sports car to 100km/h in well under 3.5 seconds and to 200km/h on the track in less than 12 seconds. The Porsche Taycan will also offer a consistent level of power that is unprecedented among electric vehicles. Multiple launches in a row will be possible without a loss in performance, and the vehicle's maximum range will be over 483km.
