The over two-minute long light show starts with a visual depiction of the statement behind Porsche's automobile ideology - 'Every Porsche ever built has a soul.' It then goes on to display the most important creations of the brand - Lohner-Porsche, Porsche 356, Porsche 911, 918 Spyder, 919 Hybrid and finally the brand's first all-electric sports car. "The Taycan is a culmination of over 70 years of experience building sports cars, merged with incredible new driving technologies," says Manfred Braeunl, CEO at Porsche Middle East and Africa FZE. "It is a true Porsche offering pure emotion and extraordinary driving pleasure."

Porsche’s regional Dubai office is all set to rollout of the first three Taycan models: the 4S, Turbo and Turbo S. The flagship Turbo S version can generate up to 560 kW power and the Turbo up to 500 kW power. The Taycan Turbo S accelerates from zero to 100 kmph in 2.8 seconds, while the Taycan Turbo completes this sprint in 3.2 seconds. The top speed of both all-wheel-drive models is 260 kmph.

While the Taycan is Porsche's first fully electric model, the brand says it has been at the forefront of electromobility for a long time. The most powerful flagship models in the brand’s range consist of plug-in hybrids such as the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid or the new Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid. The first ever fully electric model will set another important milestone for company.
