The driver was the weakest link in the design of the Porsche TaycanOctober 7, 2019
This is exactly what Ingo Albers, the company’s official representative and head of the electric chassis development department, says. According to him, the first Porsche electric car has no restrictions on starting with Launch Control.
The Porsche Taycan driver will surrender faster than the car shows a decrease in acceleration performance from 0 to 100 km / h. According to official statements, the model has no restrictions on launching from a Launch Control, and after 20-30 attempts the driver will give up, and the electric car will continue to demonstrate the declared characteristics in dynamics. At least, as stated by Motoring, the head of the development of the chassis of the Taycan project, Ingo Albers:
“After 20 or 25 starts from a standpoint of up to 200 kilometers per hour at the limit, you give up, I promise,” Albers added.
Typically, the use of Launch Control (provides maximum acceleration from scratch) is limited to one or more times in a short period. This is usually due to the extreme load on the transmission, engine and brake system, as well as their overheating. Taycan has no such restrictions.
Recall that the model is presented in two versions: Porsche Taycan Turbo and Turbo S. The first is able to accelerate to “hundreds” in 3.2 seconds, and the second in 2.8 seconds. Maximum speed is electronically limited to around 260 km / h. And the power reserve will be up to 450 km at full charge.
