A collaboration between Porsche and Gardens by the Bay sees invited guests getting the opportunity to test drive the Taycan around the city centre.

12 Jul 2021 | Local News : Singapore

Art and speed have come together in spectacular fashion at Gardens by the Bay, courtesy of Porsche and the Dale Chihuly: Glass in Bloom exhibition.

The partnership between Gardens by the Bay and Porsche marks an important part of Porsche's continued commitment to bring together enthusiasts who share an appreciation for creativity, while giving customers and new audiences alike a platform to understand the art of sports cars beyond the conventional need for speed.

A dedicated pavilion will allow all those invited to get to know the Taycan better, while surrounded by pieces from the exhibition
And as part of building that platform, members of the media as well as invited guests were treated to a unique driving experience through the roads surrounding the gardens.

The drives will be conducted over a two-week period, starting from 12 July 2021, giving all invited a unique point from which to admire the vibrant horticultural oasis in the heart of Singapore.

A dedicated pavilion at the Meadows at the Gardens will also give all those attending the opportunity to see the Porsche Taycan up close and in person, receive a quick brief, and learn more about the car, surrounded by the various glass sculptures that also form part of the exhibition.

The test drive will allow customers to see the city through the glass of a Taycan after they have had their fill of Dale Chihuly's sculpted glass works
But members of the public need not fret, for they can also swing down to catch a glimpse of another product of the collaboration - the Porsche Taycan art car.

The art car takes centre centre stage within the SG50 Lattice, proudly displaying its vibrant livery for all to see. The art on this Taycan features elements from Dale Chihuly's award-winning 'Persians' series.

Following the Taycan's global launch in January, the fourth variant and entry-level of the Taycan model range will also make its official debut in Singapore at the integrated driving experience.

Priced from $345,858 (as of press time), the first rear-wheel drive Taycan delivers Porsche typical performance with up to 322bhp, while offering a range of up to 484km as tested on the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure cycle.
