Video of a larger than life Porsche Taycan Turbo S coupe!
After a sedan and a station wagon, Porsche will diversify its EV (electric vehicle) offering by introducing a crossover with the next-generation Macan arriving later in 2022.
On the other hand, it would seem that we have to wait patiently for an electric coupé to arrive, since Zuffenhausen has stated on numerous occasions that a fully electric 911 will not arrive before 2030. The only plausible scenario concerning the arrival of a two-door model without a combustion engine before then is a hypercar that would take over from the 918 Spyder.
The independent artist 2NCS is a little more optimistic envisioning a Taycan Coupe based on the Turbo S version for a purely hypothetical release in 2023. This is more than just an illustration, as it took the time and effort to « shoot » a video 90 seconds of this imaginary electric vehicle, which would have no rivals since, unfortunately, there are no electric coupes on sale today.
Considering the widened fenders and beefy aero kit, we think the digital design exercise is more akin to a track-oriented GT3 RS, like Porsche’s naturally aspirated sports cars.
A day will come when such a sporty vehicle will become a reality, but in the meantime, we understand that Porsche is focusing on something else. With the Taycan outselling 2x the 718 Boxster/Cayman and Panamera in the US and a Macan EV on the way, the coupe isn’t high on the priority list.
This does not prevent us from dreaming that the powerful electric motors of the Taycan Turbo S are installed in a lighter two-door coupe. With a sedan weighing 2270 kg, it is possible to reduce weight and create a high performance electric vehicle to rival the Rimac Nevera.
Incidentally, Porsche owns 45% of the shares of the new Bugatti-Rimac joint venture, as well as 24% of the shares of Rimac directly. You can be sure that something exciting will come out of this collaboration.
