Porsche Australia launched the 2021 Porsche Taycan earlier this month. The launch was placed at Sydney’s Darling Harbor, which played a backdrop to an innovative water projection, featuring the new all-electric Porche Taycan, to an equally dazzling debut.
High-pressure jets created a 20-metre-wide cloud hovering above the waterline, with stunning visuals of the Taycan projected onto it, along with 3D effects, neon colours and electricity crackling across the water, together with a coordinated soundtrack added to the atmosphere. These were all complemented by projections on the side of a nearby skyscraper, placing the Porsche Taycan firmly in the city.
The all-electric Taycan can do 0-100 km/h in 5.4 seconds, with a top speed of 230 km/h. Porsche claims it has a range of 484 km (WLTP test standard), reducing the need to stop and charge, allowing for a longer, and better drive.
The starting price for Porsche Taycan in Australia is $191,000 before on-road costs.
Closer to home, the Taycan's price starts at RM 584,561.
