Porsche has been using the Mission E codename quite publicly for a couple years now, since the concept’s first debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2015.
Today, the German automaker has announced that the Mission E will be sold as the Porsche Taycan.
It means “lively young horse”
“Our new electric sports car is strong and dependable, said Porsche Chairman Oliver Blume. “It’s a vehicle that can consistently cover long distances and that epitomizes freedom.”
Porsche says the Taycan will do 0-60 miles per hour in “well under” 3.5 seconds, thanks to two motors providing more than 600 horsepower. It’ll offer a driving range of over 300 mile
