The 2020 Porsche Taycan will arrive with 600 horsepower and a 0-60 miles per hour time of only 3.5 seconds. The big drain of maximum power can tax the charging (or discharging) system of an electric powertrain and hinder performance. Porsche named the Panamera after the Carrera Panamericana long-distance race. Particularly noteworthy is that the Taycan's 800V charging technology will enable 100km of range with just 4 min of charge.
