Driving at 200 km / h around the city – a Turkish crashes with an exclusive Porsche vehicle – Apollo.lv – Auto – Apollo.lv – iTech

Speed ​​has magical power. It tightens, grips and releases only when it’s too late. A Turkish man made sure of this on his own skin, who had decided how the 3.2 seconds to 100 km / h promised by the manufacturer would actually be and how long it would take to reach 200 km / h.

It would be more sensible to perform this type of experiment in closed areas – on the start / finish line of a race track or on an aerodrome runway. However, the unnamed driver of the Porsche Taycan Turbo thought he had a very good street in the Turkish city of Gaziantep.

The video filmed by the passenger shows that the driver is waiting for the most suitable moment and pushing the pedal to the floor. The car picks up speed in a flash. After all, it has all-wheel drive and 680 horsepower.

However, before reaching 200 km / h, the pilot decides that it is the last moment to brake. It turned out to be only partially true, because the best moment for braking had already passed and he failed to cut in the rotation circle. The Porsche electric car overcame the rotating circle and all the edges with painful jumps and stopped next to the road.

The driver’s joys did not last long. They can be measured in just a few seconds, while repair costs in the thousands or even tens of thousands of euros if not only the bumpers but also the wheels and suspension units are broken.

Although they have not formally announced it, there are already videos and photos of this longer model of the electric Taycan, which was launched by the German brand earlier this year. At first, This “station wagon” type car must have the same physical characteristics, both in its exterior and in the interior of the original Taycan, as is the case with the Panamera and Panamera Sport Turismo.

Under the bonnet you will have the same powerful electric motor as the Taycan, as well as handling characteristics that are simply outstanding. There is still no date for the launch of this version, because it was delayed due to issues of the pandemic and the closure of the brand’s factories.

Genesis GV80

Ferrari Omologato, a Ferrari like no other

NEW – A name evoking the GTO, a rear hatch covered with louvers: Maranello’s latest bespoke creation offers a journey of nostalgia.


Even in the choice of appellation, the shadow of the famous Ferrari 250 GTO (O for Omologato) seems to have hovered over the design of the latest bespoke creation from the House of Maranello. From the 812 Superfast from which it borrows the platform and the V12, the Ferrari Omologato has kept only the windshield and headlamps. Everything else is new. This is what the informed European collector, at the origin of the order, wanted.


From the first sketches to the delivery of this unique berlinetta, two years have passed. The 250 GTO clearly inspired this unique berlinetta. The sloping and smooth front hood adopts two gills and a flattened oval grille that refer to those of the GTO of 1962. ‘a light car. The rear scrambles the cards. The louvers covering the large bezel suggest that the engine is installed at the rear. The two double lights of the 812 Superfast are replaced by a single equipment.


The interior treatment takes a trip back to the 1960s. Like those in racing cars and the 250 GTO, the leather and jeans fabric seats are electric blue, while the metal parts of the dashboard and the The arch housing the gearbox knobs mimic the crackle paintwork of sixties GTs.

“Doesn’t make sense”: Porsche doesn’t rely on electric range

The German sports car manufacturer Porsche still has the disadvantage of Tesla – when it comes to the range of electric cars. Porsche head of development Steiner emphasizes, however, that the Zuffenhausen-based company is not interested in that. Other things would have more priority with e-cars.

When it comes to developing electric cars, the sports car manufacturer Porsche sees little point in a race just for the greatest range. “Range is of course relevant,” said Research and Development Director Michael Steiner. “But the question is: how important is range compared to other vehicle properties?” That also applied to the Taycan, the first all-electric model from Porsche. “We never wanted to become world champions in range with the Taycan, but we wanted to be the reference in terms of driving dynamics,” said Steiner.

Especially for comparisons with the US electrical pioneer Tesla, Porsche had to take a lot of malice and criticism after the market launch of the Taycan. Just looking at the range is not enough, argued Steiner. “We see a reasonable range with a range of 400 kilometers, which we can also achieve with the Taycan.”

“Fast loading important”

The bigger you make the battery in the car, the more energy is needed to manufacture the car and to move the battery with it every day. “In my opinion, from a sustainability point of view, it makes no sense to wage a battle for the greatest possible range,” said Steiner. “When long distances are driven – which is usually not the case every day – very fast charging and an appropriate density of fast charging points are much more important.”

Nevertheless, there will also be progress in terms of range. Cell technology is improving, and the efficiency of electrical machines and their control can still be increased.


The collection of André Lurton dispersed

The Artcurial house is auctioning off, on September 27 in Gironde, the civilian and military vehicles of this great Bordeaux figure.

A Fisson 8HP 3 liters “Tonneau” from 1898 estimated between 120,000 and 200,000 euros.

Sales follow each other but do not resemble each other. Fifteen days after the dispersal of André Trigano’s automobiles, the Motorcars department of Artcurial sells the André Lurton collection. Deceased last year at age 94, this great Bordeaux figure, long president of the Syndicat viticole AOC Entre-Deux-Mers and administrator of the Interprofessional Bordeaux Wine Council (CIVB), owner of Château Bonnet, in the heart of Entre-deux-Mers, had built a collection vehicles which certainly had neither the prestige nor the richness of that of Trigano but which recounted his personal journey.

Passionate about mechanics from a young age, André Lurton had for many years assembled vehicles revealing his story, that of his family and that of his wife, Elisabeth Garros. The Simca 6 reminded him of the car from his honeymoon in Chamonix. On the way back, the breakage of a shock absorber had forced them to wait two days on the banks of the Loire for the arrival of

Porsche 911 Turbo S, a show of strength

Not to be confused. Within the galaxy Porsche, there is the 911 and the one that we have become accustomed to simply calling “the Turbo”. For forty-five years, the latter has not stopped pushing the limits of the conceivable. In the space of eight generations, its flat-six changed planet, going from 260 hp for the first 3-liter version to 680 hp for the latest S variant powered by two variable-geometry turbos. A power which brings it closer to that of the 935 K3 victorious in the Sarthe in 1979. A challenge for a vehicle whose cantilevered engine architecture seemed to condemn it in the long term. Not only have the engineers succeeded in demonstrating that this was not the case, but over time, the Turbo has continued to improve, becoming more and more tame. The hypertrophy of its silhouette – the body widens 45 mm at the front and 20 mm at the rear while the adaptive spoiler increases in surface area – will make some purists squeak more than ever, but it was necessary to go through there to ensure perfect control of the ground connections.


As such, a Turbo has never seemed so easy to drive. This grand touring coupe seems to be stuck on rails. This is even truer with the PASM controlled damping including a sport chassis lowered by 10 mm, at the cost of some discomfort on degraded pavement. Behind the wheel of the Turbo S, what fascinates is its unparalleled consistency, and the extent of its repertoire. The Turbo is able to move through traffic without flinching and in the next instant, catapult you into another dimension with a simple push on the accelerator.


If unsurprisingly, the performances border on excellence, the times are those of a missile: it only takes 1.6 seconds to go from 80 to 120 km / h. From the latest 911 type 992, it inherits the best: the comfort equipment of a sedan and the digital instrumentation resting on a curved tablet. The essential is preserved: in the middle of the two customizable screens sits a huge analog tachometer reminiscent of the first 911. Nostalgia when you hold us!

Porsche Taycan in Argentina: how much does the first electric of the German brand cost

The Porsche Taycan is the brand’s first electric for sale (Photo: Porsche).

Not counting the vehicles that Ferdinand Porsche developed at the end of the 19th century and that were indeed already electric, the first fully electric production car that Porsche has for sale is the Taycan. And it has already arrived in Argentina.

In the country it is available with prices of 379 000 (Taycan 4S), 469 000 (Taycan Turbo) and 559 000 dollars (Taycan Turbo S). On that, we must add the options that each client wants to add. In Germany the model starts at 100,000 euros.

In all cases it has two electric motors, one on each axle, which gives it all-wheel drive.

It has a range of up to 450 kilometers, depending on the brand (Photo: Porsche)

The less powerful version is the 4S with 435 hp, followed by the Turbo (a name by tradition, since an electric car is not turbo) with 680 hp and the Turbo S, with 761 hp. The box is two-speed automatic.

With these mechanics the benefits are first class: the Turbo S accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.8 seconds, while the Turbo does it in 3.2 and the 4S in 4 seconds. The maximum is 260 km / h.

It has powers of up to 761 horsepower (Photo: Porsche).

Unlike the electric ones that are on the market, the Taycan has a system of 800 volts, and in terms of autonomy, it is up to 450 kilometers. According to Porsche, “with a Taycan you could travel the route from Puerto Madero to Nordelta 7 times.”

Fast chargers can charge 5% to 80% of the battery in 22 minutes. In addition, customers can install the chargers at home or in the office to ensure that it is recharged while the charger infrastructure is being developed in the country.

Porsche Taycan: 400 Audi employees to help production

Porsche’s first electric car proved to be a resounding success. To meet demand, an increase in production was requested with the help of Audi

Criticized, desired, ambitious, revolutionary. Since its announcement, Taycan has sparked mixed feelings, only to prove to be a resounding success. To such an extent that Porsche had to ask Audi for help. Concrete help that will come in the form of manpower: the Ingolstadt house will offer the support of 400 employees who will increase production, which currently cannot meet the demand of numerous customers. This is not Porsche’s first intervention: the plant’s production capacity has been increased to 40,000 units per year, hiring 500 new employees. Marketing has also been increased: compared to the 10 thousand initially planned, 20 thousand Taycans will be placed on the market in the course of 2020.


Audi sends Porsche to help hundreds of employees. They will produce electric Taycany

About four hundred employees of the four circles are moving to Zuffenhausen, where I will help build a Porsche Taycan electric car.

The carmaker Audi confirmed the employee’s transfers of the magazine Automobile week. From the plant in Neckarsulm, 400 people will travel to Zuffenhausen, about 50 kilometers away, to take part in the production of electricity. Porsche Taycan. The brand’s first serial electric car is an unexpected success for customers, and demand exceeds the factory’s production.

This is not just a short-term solution. Audi employees relocate for at least two years and are lucky that the two factories are not that far apart. The first reinforcements appeared at Porsche in June, and more are to follow in these months.


In addition, Porsche is hiring more and more new employees and is trying to squeeze the most out of the interest in the electric Taycan. The original prediction spoke of 20,000 pieces produced per year, today it is double. Every day, 150 electric cars leave the production lines in Zuffenhausen.

Due to the high interest in Taycan, the carmaker even postponed the arrival of the new body version of the Cross Turismo, which is actually such a plasticized estate. We were originally supposed to wait this year, but in the end the production of the novelty is postponed to 2021.

According to the statistics CarSalesBase Taycan reports a total of 3,231 registered units for the first half of 2020. By the way, this is significantly more than the Porsche Panamera (1895 units), a similarly shaped car, but equipped with a conventional drive. On the other hand, it must be said that Panamera has recently undergone modernization, which may have affected the numbers in some way.


Hold on – now the Porsche Taycan is even faster

Porsche thundered into the electric car market with its Taycan towards the end of 2019. In Norway, more than 3,000 customers reserved the car – and now the deliveries are well underway.

Thanks to exemption from taxes and VAT, and that Taycan can also be described as relatively practical, it will ensure a huge sales growth for Porsche here at home.

But already from the 2021 model, there will be a fairly extensive sandwich list with upgrades.

It not only gets faster, which is sensational enough in itself – but also gets more equipment. Among other things, one thing we know many have wanted.

But let’s just as well speed up first. Porsche customers are a little above average about acceleration and tenths of a second. And here they get some new and lower numbers to enjoy.

With the 2021 version of the Taycan Turbo S, 0-200 km / h is processed in just 9.6 seconds – 0.2 seconds faster than the current model. The quarter mile, which is an important distance in the USA, is delivered in 10.7 seconds. 0.1 second better than before.

Not so important, you might think? No, it must be so. But it is now the case that these figures say something about what capacity the car offers.

Test by Taycan: – I look in the mirror and think: What every day !?

(The case continues below)

Taycan will be a common sight on Norwegian roads, when all customers get their cars.

Finally it gets …

More useful in everyday life, however, is that the 2021 model gets a head up display. We know this should come at a later date, but that it would happen so quickly is good news.

Porsche goes for a color display that is three-part, with one main field, and two smaller fields.

In a car that offers the performance Taycan does, it is smart to have equipment that helps you keep your eyes on the road as much as possible.

Smart air suspension

With a stronger on-board charger, charging is also twice as fast. The new one is 22 kW, while the current one is 11 kW. This halves the charging time when using a standard electrical outlet.

If you use Porsche’s Ionity fast chargers, you will be able to charge without using a card or app. Charging starts automatically when the cable is connected to the car, and charges the car owner’s account.

The air suspension offers what is called a “Smartlift”, which means that the car can automatically rise in given situations, such as speed bumps and entry and exit of parking garages. This system will also adapt to driving on the motorway.

Those who have already received their car can be happy that new services will be available wirelessly.  These can be both bought and rented.

Wireless updates

Porsche will also offer several new services that can be downloaded wirelessly, which car owners can either buy or subscribe to over shorter periods. It can be Porsche Intelligent Range Manager (PRIM), Power Steering Plus (PSP), active file holder or Porsche InnoDrive.

In the well-known Porsche style, it is also emphasized that Taycan’s launch control, which ensures the absolute fastest acceleration, can be used without worrying about the car being damaged by it.

Maybe just missing, do you think? Well, here it is common for the manufacturer to warn against doing this exercise too often, because there is such a large load on the engine, gearbox and the car in general.

Porsche, on the other hand, promises that you can do as much as you want in Taycan, without compromising the car’s reliability.

Finally, we include seven new color choices – and a new Carbon Sport design package.
