Porsche Taycan Turbo Driving Experience Compared To Other Porsches

The Porsche Taycan Turbo has has the performance of a Porsche, but does it have its soul?

  • We take the Porsche Taycan Turbo for a drive to see how it stacks up with other Porsche combustion engine models.


The Porsche Taycan is Porsche’s first EV which means it is completely different from anything Porsche has ever built. But how much of the brand’s DNA has filtered through?

It’s certainly a Porsche from a looks stand point, with a subtle design that has a “wolf in sheep’s clothing” feel to it. When seen from the front, it has an aggressive look to it and it certainly attracts a ton of attention.

Inside, the Porsche Taycan has many familiar Porsche bits along with a brand-new infotainment system and a fully digital centre console that takes a bit of time to get used to.

On the road, the Taycan misses certain critical elements of the Porsche driving experience, most notably the lack of sound from the engine. Yes, you can artificially add sound to the Taycan’s drive, and as far as fake engine sounds go Porsche has it down, but it will never  be the same as hearing a flat-six revving up to the red line.

On the other hand, the Taycan Turbo is quicker than any other Porsche except the Taycan Turbo S. With 670 horsepower and instant torque, launching the Taycan Turbo is unlike anything a driver has ever felt in a car, Porsche or other. Very few cars push like this off the line, and they all have an electric motor.

Check out the video to find out how the Porsche Taycan Turbo compares to other Porsche vehicles.
