  • Porsche Gives Taycan Name To Road Going Mission E Concept

Now, as we get closer to the launch of the production version of the electric sports auto next year, Porsche is ready to let us get used to the car's actual name.

The Taycan has been dubbed the "Tesla-slayer" by some automotive journalists.

Previewed in our exclusive images, the Taycan will bear a close resemblance to the concept in shape and style, but the rear-hinged back doors and matrix LED headlamps will be adapted for production.

Porsche makes different versions of all its cars, ranging from from fast to extremely fast, and it's expected to do the same with the Taycan.

Top Republican Paul Ryan says Trump shouldn't pardon himself
He demanded a Justice Department inquiry of the matter and dubbed the matter "SPYGATE" in repeated posts on Twitter. The department originally denied Congress access to any of the documents, citing national security concerns.

Porsche has said battery-only vehicles could account for a quarter of its sales by 2025. Features such as the flared haunches, LED tail-light strip and coupe-like rear end will remain to echo the looks of the 911 sports vehicle. The existing engine plant is being expanded to manufacture electric motors, and a new body shop will also be developed.

This output should give the vehicle, which Webber admits is "heavier" than a standard Porsche due to its electric powertrain, a 0-62mph time of around three and a half seconds.

Porsche is doubling down on electric cars, saying it will pour over €6 billion (about $7.1 million) into electromobility by 2022. The variants, of which there is likely to be three, will vary from around 400bhp up to 600bhp. There will likely be more extreme versions of this vehicle in the future. It also plans a crossover version of the auto, as previewed by the Cross Turismo concept that made its debut at March's Geneva Motor Show. The new architecture the vehicle introduces will be used as a base for a fully electric model from Bentley. Announcing the name, the company has even released a teaser video that reveals that the Porsche Taycan features a fully digital instrument cluster - a first for a Porsche.

The four-seater sedan - formerly known by its codename, "Mission E" - will directly take on the Tesla Model S, reports Reuters, when it begins volume production in 2019. Particularly noteworthy is that the Taycan's 800V charging technology will enable 100km of range with just 4 min of charge.
