Taycan Turbo S is hypercar-quick in a straight line, but we’ve seen that trick before with electric cars. Taycan Turbo S impresses most for its balanced performance portfolio. Entirely new in an electric car is its ability to change direction with a grace no 5000-pound car should possess. A low center of gravity, rear-wheel steering, front and rear electric motors with torque vectoring to meter power at each wheel, and Porsche’s Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) sway bar system that deftly limits body roll have gifted Taycan with Olympic agility. Hats off and three cheers to Walter Röhrl, 2-time World Rally Champion and Porsche’s stoic speed warrior, who led the team of development drivers.
