Porsche Taycan First Drive
The all-electric Porsche Taycan turned quite a few heads at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, but Fully Charged’s Jonny Smith was recently invited to drive the camouflaged pre-production prototype, and shows us just how quick it really is. He performed several full-throttle acceleration tests with the launch control system activated, or 30 of them to be exact, without breaking a sweat.

This pre-production prototype is suspected to be the top-of-the-line version with over 600 horsepower, but the production model will come in several trims over the next two years, including a base rear-wheel-drive powered by a single motor. Now official numbers have been released, though Porsche mentioned at least one trim is capable of hitting 62 mph in slightly over 3-seconds and do 0-124 mph in under 12-seconds.
