Noted by AutoBlog, The Drive contributor Alex Roy took to Twitter to share a message he received from a “Brand Ambassador” aligned with his local Porsche dealership:
It appears the performance version of the Porsche Taycan EV will be branded “Turbo”.
Because ICE nomenclature is how one converts customers to EV.

Roy was sent the above statement after registering on the Porsche website to place a deposit on a Taycan. Notably, the Porsche Taycan will be available in Tayvan, Taycan 4S and Taycan Turbo variations, with respective pricing listed “low $90,000” USD, “high $90,000” USD and “over 130,000” USD.
You can take a look at the Porsche Taycan above. We’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available.
