Despite the effects of the ongoing global pandemic on the auto industry at large, especially the cancellation of various auto shows scheduled to hold this year, there is one thing one car event car lovers can all fall back to. The Chengdu Auto Show is one event we didn’t see coming at all.
Although, this auto show isn’t as massive or glamorous as the likes of Geneva Auto Show or New York Auto Show, but it’s an acceptable way of launching the Porsche Taycan. One remarkable thing that first got our attention with this supercar is its exterior paintjob, which is the Frozen Berry Metallic. Well, it might be a bit controversial and likely to draw a lot of mixed reactions from car lovers around the globe.
We are not going to give our final verdict on this new look. After all, it all depends on your taste and what drives you crazy about a car. From report, this pinky Porsche Taycan features a 5-spoke alloy wheels and bubble gum pick outside look. The automaker has offered grey and purple leather with purple carpeting on the inside.
This Porsche Taycan is not all about looks but remarkable performance to complement this. It is powered by 79.2 kWh battery from an electric motor mounted at the back, producing an impressive output of 402 horsepower. With this electric powertrain, the Frozen Berry Metallic Porsche Taycan, it can achieve an impressive 257 miles on a single charge. The car maker is also giving customers an optional Performance Battery Plus of 93.4 kWh to extend its range capacity to 304 miles.
The entry-level and the top-ranging variants will similarly sprint from zero to 62 mph in an impressive 5.4 seconds and a maximum speed of 143 mph. the Porsche Taycan offers an astonishing feature to bolster its performance level, which is the Porsche Active Suspension Management system. The dynamic chassis control sport, torques vectoring plus, and rear-axle steering are some of the optional features the buyers can request for while making their orders.
This entry-level of this Porsche Taycan is way beyond what we should expect on base model. It comes fitted with a panoramic glass roof, dual-zone climate control system and 14-way power front comfort seats. Since its electric motor is rear-mounted, it allows more space to accommodate up to 17.3 cubic feet of luggage.
To get this particular model, the price for the entry-level Porsche Taycan starts at $126,544. We expect interested customers to pay more to get some of the optional performance level.
