Our new electric sports auto is strong and dependable; its a vehicle that can consistently cover long distances and that epitomises freedom, explains Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG.
The confirmation of the Taycan name comes ahead of the car's 2019 launch and was announced by Porsche's CEO Oliver Blume at an event to mark the company's 70th anniversary.
Porsche is the latest in a long line of companies that decided to make an extra buck by charging monthly fees to people in need of information about their electric vehicles. The Boxster takes its name from Porsche's boxer engine and its roadster design, while Cayman is derived from the South American reptile related to the alligator. Macan is taken from the Indonesian word for tiger, while Cayenne denotes fieriness.
Porsche has expanded its Zuffenhausen factory to produce the Taycan, as well as doubling its electric vehicle budget to €6 billion until 2022, including an extra €500 million developing variants based on the Taycan.
Also unique to the Speedster are the lower windshield and shorter side windows, giving it a sleek feel, and throwing back - again - to the Porsche 356 Speedster. That 53-acre complex features a driver development track with eight educational modules totaling 4.1 miles, a business center, and Restaurant 917.
"In addition to fascinating vehicles, building a customer-friendly charging infrastructure is the key to achieving long-term success for electromobility", said in a statement Detlev von Platen, Porsche's marketing head.
At the core of this success is Porsche's proud racing heritage that boasts some 30,000-plus motorsport wins to date.
A production version of the 911 Speedster is expected to arrive next year. He has managed and overseen start ups in Mining, Shipping, Technology and Financial Services.
