Review

If you're looking for a brilliant electric car that offers real driving pleasure, the Porsche Taycan is the one for you. On top of its amazing handling, it's also wonderfully classy inside and reasonably practical, too. On the negative side, the Audi e-tron GT is almost as good to drive but cheaper and better equipped, while the Tesla Model S has a much better official range.

Super expensive but over the Turbo adds 21in alloy wheels, and 'engine' sound generator, Sports Chrono Package, four-wheel steering, ceramic brakes and a leather-free interior.

This is the top-spec but pricey Turbo S model. Normally it has 617bhp but, for short bursts, it can produce up to 751bhp. That means it will go from 0-62mph in 2.8sec. It will also do a WLTP range of 259 miles (bank on 200-ish in the real world) and can charge at up to 270kW, which will take the battery from 10-80% in around 20mins.
