Jonny Smith is the first automotive journalist to drive the Porsche Taycan. A star on YouTube’s “Fully Charged Show,” Smith is the first person, outside of the automaker’s employees, to sit behind the wheel of the EV performance car.
In the video, you can see Smith launch the Taycan over and over again. Validated on the “Fully Charged Show,” he drives it 0 to 124 mph dozens of times. Smith commented, “I actually felt the jowls try and leave my face then. I didn’t actually know I was that jowly. Clearly I am.”
Porsche was determined for the Taycan to be indefatigably launched over and over. They succeeded in their designed. Taycan program director Bernd Propfe said, “We set out with a goal to build a Porsche and not have the driver feel the de-rating of the car in any situation.” Check out the video to see the EV that packs over 600 horsepower.
