The Taycan lineup has been revealed in China and there's a new trim below the 4S that is simply called "Taycan".

From Auto.Sina in China:

In terms of power, the Taycan is powered by a permanent magnet synchronous motor on the rear axle and has a standard start control system. The maximum output power when equipped with a standard battery is 240 kW (326 hp), and the start-up control system can achieve 300 kW (408 hp).

I wonder if they will eventually launch the base Taycan everywhere. I have to think so.

That amount of power certainly seems sufficient and obviously it will cost less. What I'd like to know is the range for that base Taycan.

I’m not sure there will be a RWD model. Why would they even do that, as none of the other hybrid/electric models in their line up have rwd. I would wait for official announcement from Porsche.

Why? Maybe because many, if not most, if not almost all, people think it's obscene to be spending $150+ grrr just to go from 0 to 60 in less than 4 seconds.

It's a real car. You can take a look on Porsche's Chinese website. The question is whether or not they'll sell it outside of China.
