Porsche Taycan Turbo Sport Turismo tested at autobahn speeds of up to 160 mph
It's no secret that the range per charge of some electric cars can drop more of less significantly when driving at highway speeds. On the unrestricted German autobahn, affluent EV drivers may be enticed to travel at speeds that are illegal in most other countries in the world, especially when they’re driving a sinfully expensive luxury car like the Porsche Taycan Turbo.
This is why the likeable YouTuber from Out of Spec Reviews has now put the Porsche Taycan Turbo Sport Turismo through its paces by pushing the station wagon variant of the electric vehicle to its maximum speed of 160 mph. With its 680 metric horsepower, the high-performing Porsche Taycan doesn't have any trouble reaching its top speed, which is why the enthusiastic test driver praises the excellent acceleration as well as the considerable stopping power of the carbon-ceramic brakes.
He further determined that the 94 kWh battery in the Porsche Taycan Turbo Sport Turismo should provide enough energy for a range of about 80 miles when driving at these autobahn speeds of 160 mph, which is an acceptable result considering the enormous air resistance. During normal driving, the German electric car has a WLTP range rating of 263 to 305 miles, but Porsche’s official range calculator projects an autobahn range of 216 miles at ambient temperatures of 86° Fahrenheit. The informative review video is embedded below this article and it provides more exciting impressions of how the Porsche Taycan Turbo Sport Turismo performs at high speeds.
