And it looks very promising.

After confirming its first-ever all-electric model will make its world debut in September (most likely at the Frankfurt Motor Show), Porsche releases a duo of teaser images to preview the Taycan. In an email sent to people who have already pre-ordered the model, the company explains everything goes as planned and “preparations are underway for a successful start for the Taycan.”

“Finishing work on the assembly line in Zuffenhausen is entering the final straight and the expansion of charging infrastructure worldwide is advancing at a great pace. The historic main manufacturing center is being made fit for the automotive production of the future, as the outside world is preparing for a new standard in charging performance – typical of Porsche, the best in its class,” Porsche’s email says.

These two new sketches give us very positive indications about the Taycan’s design. In the transformation from a concept car (the Mission E) to a production model, the project is not losing its appeal and is, in fact, looking better than ever. The drawings propose significantly cleaner and sharper shapes than the test prototypes we’ve spied. Simply put, it’s going to be a looker.

And it’s going to be fast, really fast. We already know two electric motors will provide motivation for the four-door EV with a combined output of more than 600 horsepower (447 kilowatts). The 0 to 62 miles per hour (0 to 100 kilometers per hour) accelerations will take less than 3.5 seconds, which will make the Taycan at least as quick as the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid. At a single charge, the first electric Porsche will be able to travel roughly 310 miles (500 kilometers) measured by the rather optimistic NEDC testing cycle, which means, in reality, the range will be smaller.

"Our start to 2019 is charged with excitement. This is the year when the first all-electric Porsche will become a reality. The Taycan is certain to enthrall not only test drivers, but also our customers with its performance. When it rolls off the production line and onto the roads, it will offer a true dynamic Porsche driving experience like every Porsche before it.

Finishing work on the assembly line in Zuffenhausen is entering the final straight and the expansion of charging infrastructure worldwide is advancing at a great pace. The historic main manufacturing center is being made fit for the automotive production of the future, as the outside world is preparing for a new standard in charging performance – typical of Porsche, the best in its class. All preparations are underway for a successful start for the Taycan. 

To keep you dreaming about the Taycan on public roads, we have also brought you the latest design sketch of the Taycan from the design studio in Weissach. As you can see, the rest of 2019 looks very exciting! We look forward to sharing these experiences together with you."
