Being a Porsche, you would expect some beefy performance figures. On paper, the 2019 Taycan doesn’t disappoint. According to Porsche, the Taycan should hit 60 in 3.5 seconds. If you want to take your electric Porsche on a road trip, it will also be able to recharge 80% of its total capacity in just 15 minutes.

The 2019 Taycan is Porsche’s first crack at a mass-production, all-electric car. The project has been taking a lot of help from the 919 Hybrid project. You know, the car that shattered the Nurburgring lap record, taking just 5:19.55 minutes.
