Porsche’s Cutting-Edge Taycan Gets Even Faster & More High-Tech In 2021

First revealed as a concept in 2015, Porsche’s Taycan is an all-electric sports car that marked the Stuttgart firm’s first entirely electron and proton-powered production model. Despite being released in late 2019, Porsche has already treated the vehicle to a significant update, aiming to remain at the forefront of the sector as EV and automotive technology rapidly evolves.

For its second model year, the Taycan’s outward appearance gets a bit of a facelift and there are numerous new color options as well as an optional carbon fiber package. Performance-wise, the launch control-equipped EV sees a few tenths of a second shaved off of its 0-124mph time. In addition to firmware updates, Porsche is offering several over-the-air services such as Active Lane Keep Assist, Porsche Intelligent Range Manager, and Power Steering Plus, which can be paid for via monthly subscriptions or for a larger one-time fee. Plus, there’s Smartlift adaptive and customizable air suspension and a massive optional HUD. The car comes with a standard 11kW onboard charger, though it can be upgraded to a 22kW item that cuts charge-times in half. Porsche’s 2021 Taycan models hit US dealerships in the first quarter of 2021, with an MSRP expected to begin from around the $100,000 mark.
