  2. Source: https://www.motor1.com/news/705965/thieves-use-tin-snips-to-steal-porsche-taycan-headlights/ People steal things from cars all the time. Whether it's the wheels, the catalytic converters, the radio, or just stuff from the interior, it happens all the time. In the case of this Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo, the thieves decided to steal the headlights. Reddit user No_Supermarket9751 posted photos of the bizarre crime that happened to his friend, and the end result is oddly disturbing. The incident happened on Monday night in Düsseldorf, Germany, No_Supermarket9751 told Motor1. The Porsche was parked on the road, and the thieves used tin snips to cut into the fenders for access to disconnect the lamps. The poor Taycan looks like it just got finished fist-fighting a can opener. No_Supermarket9751 said his friend alerted the police, and the crime is under investigation. This Taycan is clearly out of commission until the headlights are replaced the body damage is fixed. Depending on which lighting options were equipped from the factory, the headlight assemblies can cost between $2,829.43 and $3,602.11, and the control modules are $373.49 to $889.32. There's also a $325.39 motor for each light. The fenders are $652.96 each. Plus, they need to be painted and mounted. This is going to be an expensive repair. This isn't the first time thieves have targeted the Taycan's headlights. While researching this story, we found a forum topic about thieves taking the headlights from a Taycan in 2021. It also happened to another Porsche in 2020, according to a Reddit post. So if you park a Taycan on the street, keep an eye out.
  3. A serious Taycan competitor is on the way but... ... official production has yet to be confirmed. Polestar 5 Touted as a GT, the five-door electric liftback won't have a rear window but that shouldn't be much of an issue given how advanced rearview cameras are nowadays. Nevertheless, some people might be put off by the absence of rear glass (just like me). It has a rakish, coupe-like roofline and a more practical tailgate compared to the Taycan and its sister model, the Audi E-Tron GT, which both have a trunk lid. Compared to the concept, it has lost the ultra-slim side cameras and suicide doors while gaining a B-pillar and smaller wheels. To be manufactured in China, this not-a-Volvo EV is slated to benefit from StoreDot's "extreme fast charging" (XFC) technology. It promises to juice up the battery enough for 100 miles (160 kilometers) of range in only five minutes without inflicting battery degradation. Prototypes will be tested with the new tech in 2024 but it remains to be seen whether it'll be available for production vehicles from day one. Polestar 6 The Polestar 6 isn’t going into production until 2026 but that doesn’t mean the automaker doesn't have exciting plans for its electric roadster. Initially, Polestar announced that it would build just 500 examples of the open-top grand tourer but it seems that it has decided to change its strategy – production will be now based on demand. And we already know the demand for the 6 is strong. Within a week after the car’s August 16 production announcement, all 500 build slots received a reservation. Reserved build slots aren’t exactly sales, but they indicate a strong interest in the production version of the electric roadster. The company’s CEO Thomas Ingenlath confirmed in a recent interview with Autocar that Polestar “would not stop at 500 if people want it.” In August this year, shortly after the debut of the Polestar 6, Ingenlath said that the first examples of the electric grand tourer will be delivered to the initial 500 reservation holders. This process will begin at some point in 2026 and once the cars are handed to their new owners, the automaker will move to regular production based on demand. Polestar’s CEO described the 6 as an electric roadster “that appeals to even the most die-hard petrolheads” and said there’s already “high interest from our customers.” At least on paper, the Polestar 6 is impressive. The roadster with a folding hardtop roof is based on the same 800-volt EV architecture that also underpins the Polestar 5. It is powered by a dual-motor powertrain, good for 884 horsepower (650 kilowatts) and 900 Newton-meters of torque. This is enough power for a 0 - 100 kilometers per hour acceleration in just 3.2 seconds. The top speed is electronically governed at 250 kph.
  4. Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo Spotted, Brings Wagons Into The Electric Era Porsche is continuing the development of the Taycan Cross Turismo, the electric model’s upcoming wagon variant, at the Nurburgring. The long-roof version of the electric Porsche Taycan was seen being driven quite hard on the German track, with the test car said to be the range-topping Turbo S model because of the characteristic wheel design. Despite Porsche having already revealed the Taycan in full production guise, the Cross Turismo model still retains most of the plastic cladding on its body, including the fake headlight and roof line covers. Porsche’s intentions of adding a second bodystyle to the Taycan range became official back in 2018 with the reveal of the Cross Turismo concept, which posed as a crossover-styled wagon featuring extra body cladding and a raised ground clearance. Customers will be offered pretty much the same powertrain options with the regular Taycan, which as of now starts from the base 4S, the 4S Performance Battery Plus, the Turbo and the Turbo S models. All versions feature two electric motors, one per axle, for all-wheel drive and a two-speed transmission mounted at the back. Performance should be on par with the regular Taycan, which on the range-topping Turbo S version offers up to 750 HP (761 PS) and 774 lb-ft (1,050 Nm) of torque on overboost, along with a neck-snapping 0-60 mph in 2.6 seconds (0-100km/h in 2.8) and a top speed of 161 mph (260 km/h). As with almost every wagon variant available in the market, the upcoming Taycan Cross Turismo is expected to offer a much more practical (and larger) luggage space, together with slightly more room for the heads of rear passengers. The Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo is expected to launch in the end of 2020, and if you find yourself wondering how the final product will look like, just take a look at the 2018 concept.
  5. Source: https://www.motor1.com/news/561563/taycan-formula-e-safety-car/ Formula E’s eighth season kicks off next week, and it’ll look a tad different when it does. The all-electric racing series will add a new safety car to the lineup – the all-electric Porsche Taycan Turbo S. The car will debut at the double-header contest in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia. “With the Taycan Turbo S as the official safety car, we’re making an important contribution to track safety and also underlining the importance of Formula E for Porsche Motorsport,” said Thomas Laudenbach, vice president of Porsche Motorsport. Porsche modified the electric sedan with all the necessary safety car kit to make it race legal – roll cage, fire extinguisher, bucket racing seats, and six-point harnesses. The car also received flashing lights integrated into the bumpers, wiring harnesses for the safety car lighting, and a Marelli Logger System. Inside, other noticeable changes include the row of switches on the center console and the enticing red button on the steering wheel. The Turbo S should have no trouble keeping up with the race cars on the track. The Taycan produces 750 horsepower (560 kilowatts), allowing it to hit 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in 2.8 seconds with launch control. It has a top speed of 161 mph (260 kph), which is just 12 mph (20 kph) less than the Gen 2 Formula E race cars. The new Taycan Turbo S safety car also wears a unique livery that’s more than an attractive design. All 11 teams are represented in the paintwork, including the FIA and Formula E. The Porsche Taycan joins BMW in supplying the series with safety cars. BMW offered the i8 Coupe and Roadster, followed by a modified Mini. The three will be at various Formula E races around the world, including London, New York City, Seoul, Mexico City, and more, for the upcoming season.

  7. The Rock Realizes He Can't Fit In A Porsche Taycan While On Movie Set source: https://www.motor1.com/news/454579/the-rock-cant-fit-taycan/ It’s safe to say Red Notice is a huge deal for Netflix considering it’s one of the streaming platform’s most expensive movies ever. Originally under development with Universal for a 2020 launch, the action-packed movie has a budget of nearly $188 million and will be out in 2021. It’s the first Netflix movie starring Dwayne Johnson and Gal Gadot, while Ryan Reynolds will be making his second appearance after starring in 6 Underground. Filming for Red Notice hasn’t exactly been smooth sailing taking into account the coronavirus pandemic put the brakes on production earlier this year. Work on the movie resumed in September, but it wasn’t without hurdles as “The Rock” took to Instagram to reveal a funny yet costly problem he had. Long story short – he couldn’t fit inside a Porsche Taycan that was brought on set to shoot a scene. The “big chase sequence” as described by the former professional wrestler took months to prepare and high production costs, which included buying a Porsche Taycan and shipping it to the film location. When the time came to shoot the scene, writer and producer Rawson Marshall Thurber (the man seen here lying on the ground in front of the car) told The Rock to hop inside the EV, only to realize his back “is a bit too wide.” The unexpected issue didn’t stop the producer and the rest of the film crew from figuring out a good angle to take the needed shot: “In the end we showed our agility to think quickly on our feet and found ‘creative’ ways to still get the shot. “ Actually, this isn’t the first time Dwayne Johnson has a problem fitting in a car, which isn’t all that surprising considering he’s 6 feet 5 inches (196 centimeters) tall. About five years ago, he complained about having an identical problem with a LaFerrari.
  8. Jonny Smith of The Fully Charged Show has been given the chance to behind the wheel of the new first Porsche all electric car - the Taycan. Set to go into production in September, Porsche has already collected 20,000 orders for the car. As for the drive at an airfield, Porsche wanted to show show off the Taycan’s ability to pull consecutive launches from zero to 200km/h and be able to sustain its straight-line performance, even after 30 back-to-back launches. FYI, its sprint to 200km/h takes less than 10 seconds thanks to a combined output of over 600bhp from its motors. Top speed is limited to 250km/h while its century sprint is in the lows 3 seconds range. While its sprinting timings isn’t as fast as, say, a Tesla’s, Porsche preferred a more stable performance instead of participating in the headline-grabbing numbers’ game. The range-topping Taycan, which will probably be named 'Turbo', can go more than 500km on a full charge thanks to its liquid-cooled 96kWh battery pack. The batteries can also be charged till 80 percent full in about 40 minutes. In the near future, buyers will be able to choose from lesser powered variants featuring one electric motor and rear-drive at a lower price range.
