Taycan Tests: Full Power

Porsche has not spared the Taycan any challenge. The company’s first all-electric sports car has proved itself on snow and ice, defied desert sands, and mastered endurance trials under extreme conditions. After six million test kilometers on freeways, country roads, race courses, and city streets, one thing is clear: this car gives full power under any and all conditions.

After twenty-four hours of driving in circles, the team led by measurement engineer Dr. Matthias Gebhard remains right on course. The Taycan goes through tough extensive trials on the circuits of the Nardò test facility. Over the course of twenty-four hours, it clocks precisely 3,425 kilometers in an impressive demonstration of its endurance qualities.

The temperature drops to minus 40 degrees Celsius but the Taycan just keeps on going. Major focuses of the cold-weather trials include suspension tuning, brake performance at low friction values, and thermal management.

South Africa

A tough tour, but the Taycan masters every challenge that comes its way. Hot-weather trials are run from Upington, near the border with Namibia. At high temperatures and humidity levels, the focus is once again on thermal management.

Dense urban traffic doesn’t deter the Taycan from finding its destination. The test program in Shanghai concentrates on charging technology, the navigation system, and connectivity.

Twenty courses and one long-term guest. The Taycan undergoes regular trials on the Nardò testing grounds. And the “Soul, electrified” marketing slogan is now a familiar sight in Apulia.
