Another piece of exclusive news, we've learned that both the Taycan Turbo and Turbo S will arrive together when the car hits dealerships later this year or early in 2020.
While we can't confirm that those models will debut when Porsche unwraps the car officially on Sept 4th (although we won't have to wait long to find out), it does seem likely. What we do know is that we've received word from one dealership in Bellevue, Washington that both the Taycan Turbo and Taycan Turbo S will be part of the first deliveries that dealerships will get.
This launch plan breaks with Porsche tradition, which often seems standard models offered first, followed by ultra-high performance versions.
It's not clear if the model used in the recent 7:42 Nurburgring lap time was the Turbo or Turbo S model, however, we opined when we watched the in-car lap video that it appeared to be electronically limited to 155 mph. A standard practice for most production cars from Germany, the Panamera Turbo S gets a top speed of 190 mph.
If the Taycan Turbo S was able to hit that speed, we expect it's N-ring lap time to drop even further!
