Upcoming Debut: Revamped All-Electric Porsche Unveiling in March!
Porsche declared that the enhanced 2024 Taycan is almost ready for its worldwide debut, as the last phase of refinement is currently in progress before its release in the spring season. From the extensive revisions made, it is expected to be just as highly improved as a brand new vehicle, similar to the latest Cayenne model.
According to the photos and past observations, the 2024 Taycan seems to have minor changes compared to the previous version. However, Porsche acknowledges that the test prototypes have traveled a tremendous distance of 2.2 million miles. This rigorous testing process is comparable, if not more extensive, to the development of a completely new model. The Rolls-Royce Spectre, for instance, underwent 1.5 million miles of global testing before its release, indicating that significant enhancements can be expected with the upcoming Taycan.
“Speed, altitude, distance – we have enhanced the new Taycan in virtually every aspect compared to its previous version,” states Kevin Giek, Vice President of Model Line. “The modifications are so significant that the rigorous testing process is almost equivalent to that of a completely new model.”
Experiments have been carried out in the most extreme conditions, such as Finland’s icy lows (reaching as low as -41.8 ºF) and California’s blistering highs (up to 127.4 ºF).
Thanks to the incorporation of Finnish technologies in these assessments, Porsche boasts that the upcoming Taycan will possess remarkable handling capabilities on snowy and icy terrain. Additionally, the vehicle’s charging time has been reduced by half in colder climates. On the opposite side of the spectrum, the intense hot weather in Death Valley has served as a rigorous trial for the thermal management system of the EV.
Aside from the updated range, Porsche has also been getting ready to release a new flagship model rumored to be named the Taycan Turbo GT, boasting an impressive 1,000 horsepower. Its recent performance at the famous Nurburgring track has surpassed that of its Tesla rival, the Model S Plaid. The pre-production version of the Taycan completed the Green Hell circuit a whopping 26 seconds faster than the electric sedan. This achievement places the highly anticipated top-of-the-line Taycan only three seconds behind the record-breaking lap set by the Rimac Nevera hypercar in 2020.
Porsche is set to unveil the recording of its record-setting lap in March 2024, which will likely align with the worldwide debut of the complete Taycan lineup.
