To celebrate exceeding 1.21 gigawatts of combined charging power between the Electrify America and the European Ionity charging network, the Porsche Taycan Turbo S met up with the iconic Back to the Future DeLorean DMC-12 showdown in the desert. Currently, there are 670 Electrify America and 372 Ionity locations, consisting of over 4,800 individual chargers. The Porsche Taycan can be charged to 80% in just 22-minutes, thanks to its 800-volt battery architecture and 270kW charge speed.

For even more convenience, Porsche Taycan owners can make use of Plug-and-Charge, which may not be as handy as the DeLorean’s Mr. Fusion, but it only requires you to simply plugs-in the vehicle for charging to starts automatically. On the other hand, a used DeLorean DMC-12 in pristine condition will most likely run you less than the $185,000 USD base MSRP of the Taycan Turbo S.

In the US and Canada, Taycan owners benefit from the first 30 minutes of each charge being free for the first three years of ownership. The all-electric sports car’s built-in Charging Planner also makes locating stations less onerous than trying to coincide a charge with a bolt of lightning, as in the film,” said Porsche.
