The sedan configurator has an option Electric Sport Sound

Porsche has added Electric Sport Sound to the Taycan Turbo options list. It is activated through the central display and makes the sound of the electric car more “emotional”.

Electric Sport Sound is an audio recording that plays when a car accelerates. The description states that she “enhances the own sound of the electric car and makes it even more emotional – both outside and inside.” In the US, this option will cost the buyer an extra $ 500

Porsche Taycan is the first fully electric model of the German brand. The sedan is so far presented only in the most powerful versions: Turbo and Turbo S. The first is equipped with a 680-horsepower power plant, the second – 761-horsepower (1050 Nm). Both versions are equipped with a rear two-stage planetary gear. The motors are powered by a 93.4 kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery.

The base car dials a hundred in 3.2 seconds. Its power reserve is 450 kilometers. The top-end Taycan Turbo S accelerates to one hundred kilometers per hour in 2.8 seconds, and can travel 412 kilometers on a single charge. The maximum speed of both modifications is the same – 260 kilometers per hour.
