Review

If you're looking for all the usual electric car benefits but want real driving pleasure, the Porsche Taycan is the car for you. It's even reasonably practical and wonderfully classy inside. It's hugely expensive, though, and if you want to do long journeys on a regular basis, the Tesla Model S is a a better bet.

Trim: Turbo S

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.

Engine: 560kW

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 256 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.
