2023 Porsche 911 vs Taycan: Can Pure Electric Be Pure Porsche, Too?

There’s something about the Porsche experience that embeds itself in those lucky enough to climb behind the wheel, driving an insatiable desire for more. It’s a phenomenon few other automakers have been able to match, let alone sustain for so many years. To drive one is to be forever changed. It started decades ago with the predecessor to the 911, the 356, and has soldiered on ever since. But a new day has dawned – one that demands emissions-free options to help curb the effects of climate change. Of course, this seems at least on the surface like it’s at odds with the Porsche experience, which is predicated upon controlled fury of the visceral variety.
