When I first met Daniel on Facebook, I could tell how passionate he was for all of his cars, in special for his Black 911 Carrera (991), the only Porsche on his garage at that time (photo above).

The new Porsche Taycan is Porsche’s first all-electric vehicle. It comes in Turbo or Turbo S forms, although, kinda obviously, neither has a turbocharger. Turbo is a sub-brand that means a Porsche is chuffing fast: and the Taycan, especially in Turbo S form like we’ve tested it here, is chuffing fast.
