Both cars can make up to 616 horsepower for 10 continuous seconds, and both offer “overboost” functions, with the Turbo capable of a 2.5-second continuous output of 670 horsepower and 626 lb-ft of torque and the Turbo S making a whopping 750 horsepower and 774 lb-ft for that short duration. This allows the the Turbo and Turbo S to achieve zero to 60 mph times of 3.0 seconds and 2.6 seconds, and quarter mile times of 11.1 and 10.8 seconds, respectively. Key to these figures, Porsche stressed during the presentation, is that the performance is repeatable, with both cars allegedly managing the aforementioned acceleration performance even after 10 runs without any significant “derating,” or performance loss. To drive that point home, Porsche pointed us to the video above of a Taycan ripping from zero to 124 mph (the vehicle’s top speed is 160 mph, if you were curious). Porsche says the car did this in under 10 seconds 26 times in a row, with “less than one second difference between first and last acceleration.” The company also pointed out that the first-ever all electric Porsche completed a 24 hour endurance run at the Nardò high-speed track in Italy, and despite the up-to-108 degree F air temperatures and the fact that the car had to be recharged during the over 2,100-mile run, the Taycan achieved an average speed of 89 mph.
