Over 20,000 People Have Registered Interest In The Porsche Taycan

For a global manufacturer that churns out a huge amount of cars every year - at least for a luxury brand - 20,000 registrations of interest may not seem like a lot. But we're talking about the Porsche Taycan, which is going to be their all-electric blue-eyed boy in the coming months and years as the company embraces more widespread electrification.

Registering interest isn't cheap. It costs a hefty 2,500 Euro, or RM 11,500, which means only more serious prospective owners will make that leap. Remember that these 20,000 heroes are dropping the money on a car that has not yet reached its final form, and is still undergoing a fair amount of development beyond the broad strokes.

That being said, the Taycan is slated for its production form debut by September, with market launch before the year's end. It's a very impressive rate of development for Porsche considering the Taycan is an entirely new car requiring new manufacturing processes and tooling as well as a radically different design approach. 

The high performance electric luxury car will be capable of hitting 100 km/h from a standstill in under 3.5 seconds, with a range of over 500 km according to the NEDC test cycle. Just four minutes on a fast charger will net you 100 km of range, making it a far more practical proposition than what we currently see.

Places more value in how fun a car is to drive than outright performance or luxury. He laments the direction that automotive development is headed in, but grudgingly accepts the logic behind it. Can be commonly found trying to fix yet another problem on his rusty project car.
