You’ll have to wait to September for the Porsche Taycan’s official unveiling, but the automaker is at least ready to answer one burning question: how well would the EV fare in a drag race? Quite well, apparently. Fully Chargedhas scored the first test drive of the Taycan for a non-Porsche driver, blasting the electric supercar through a runway demo of its launch control mode. It’s quick, reaching around 225km/h (about 140mph) before needing to slow down as the end of the tarmac appeared. The claimed 0-62MPH time of 3.5 seconds may be very conservative. However, the real allure is how often you can invoke the launch mode — it’s not just a party trick.
