Will it Drift? 2020 Porsche Taycan Turbo video review

Porsche’s first EV sports car gets sent sideways as we see what its torque vectoring electric motors are capable of.

We already knew the Porsche Taycan Turbo is a sensational all-wheel drive all-electric sedan. It has staggering performance, with 460kW and instant torque that can go from 0-100km/h in 3.2sec and onto a limited top speed of 260km/h. But it’s also a seriously good driver’s car, that feels exactly like a Porsche should, with keen cornering ability. We even know it’ll drift a bit, because we’ve tried it.

 

But what we don’t how is how well, repeatedly, it’ll drift if faced with a damp skid pan and asked to show what its fancy torque vectoring systems can really do. So now here’s our chance to find out, as Matt Prior from Automotive Daily’s partner Autocar gets behind the wheel to send the Taycan sidways.
