Porsche is planning a rear-wheel-drive version of its Taycan electric car
A cheaper model to start the Porsche Taycan electric car line-up is in the works, says a company executive.
German sports car maker Porsche is developing a more affordable rear-wheel drive version of its Taycan electric car to provide buyers with a “more accessible” entry point into the range.
According to a report from Car Magazine in the UK, Porsche’s research and development chief, Dr Michael Steiner, said more affordable Taycan models would eventually join the existing 4S, Turbo and Turbo S offerings in the range.
“There will be entry-level models coming off the Taycan,” Dr Steiner said.
“There will be a rear-wheel drive model with a smaller battery to make it more accessible price-wise, especially for markets that don’t need 4WD – places like China, where weather conditions mean you don’t need it.”
The new arrival would be the sole RWD variant in an otherwise all-wheel drive lineup.
