'Taycan' is Porsche's new electric sedan

The Taycan will be the first of Porsche's electric models but the carmaker has big plans to go the electric way. It's no huge surprise, given in the USA at least cars are still legally required to have two side mirrors using reflective glass.

The German automaker announced it at the opening ceremony for the "70 years of the Porsche sports car" special exhibition at the Porsche Museum today. Porsche named the Panamera after the Carrera Panamericana long-distance race.

Sandra Bullock Says She Nearly Quit Acting Because Of Hollywood Sexism
" Sandy Bullock looks up and goes, "Looking good, mama!' I was like, 'Ooh, that made me feel amazing". He was still alive at the end of Ocean's 13 (2007) but I suppose a lot can happen in 11 years.

In terms of specs, we're still stuck with what Porsche's mentioned in the past.

The name, which is derived from Turkish, according to Porsche, and translates as "lively young horse", is a reference to the prancing steed at the center of Porsche's shield-shaped logo. With this setup, Porsche claims that the Taycan will complete a 0-100 km/h sprint in 3.5 seconds and take just under 12 seconds for a 0-200 km/h speed run. The four-door, four-seat Taycan's floor-mounted batteries point to an extremely low centre of gravity and handling to match more focused performance machines. Explaining the new moniker, Porsche Chairman Oliver Blume said in a statement, "Our new electric sports auto is strong and dependable; it's a vehicle that can consistently cover long distances and that epitomizes freedom". And with good reason, the Mission E's specs are truly remarkable and may ultimately sway some prospective Model S buyers to side with Porsche instead. Porsche says that it won't happen here. Prices are expected to start around $80,000 to $90,000. Porsche also says that it has "a continuous power level that is unprecedented among electric vehicles". A new paint shop, dedicated Taycan assembly area, and a conveyor bridge that will move painted bodies and drive units to the final assembly area are already under construction.
