STUTTGART: Apparently, a smaller two-wheel-driven Porsche Taycan is headed for the market with a smaller battery pack, less range and performance.
The German sports car maker is looking to provide a more accessible variant of the Taycan for the masses.
This means that this particular variant will sit below the existing trio of Taycan variants.
The lineup currently starts with the 4S and is followed by the mid-range Turbo and range-topping Turbo S.
Although the Taycan is a purely electric model line-up, the Turbo nomenclature is merely an indicator of its performance with the Turbo and Turbo S variants both having 616bhp (over boost with launch control - 671bhp and 751bhp respectively).
This means a sprint from 0 to 100kph will take just 3.2 seconds or 2.8sec before reaching a top speed of 260kph.
At current, the German brand is keeping a tight lip about the price of this Taycan.
Rumours are buzzing on the Internet that China could be the first market to receive it, followed by Britain in 2021 and then the US.
