On Thursday 23 January, we attended an exclusive event at Dock 10 Studios, Media City in Manchester, hosted by Porsche Cars Great Britain. The event was our first opportunity to see the new all-electric Taycan, and the car was presented against an incredible backdrop of a light and projection show.
Designers took inspiration from the car’s iconic silhouette as well as the graceful power of its performance, to create the immersive event which showcased the vehicle in a truly unique way. The experience began with a small exhibition which chronicled the origins of the new Taycan, before giving us a deeper look at how Porsche Motorsport is influencing the brand’s progression in e-mobility. We also got an exclusive behind the scenes look at how the Taycan is made.
The exhibition was followed by a bespoke light and projection art installation which aimed to bring the electrified soul of the Porsche Taycan to life. We then had the opportunity to admire the car’s sleek design and never-seen-before features for ourselves.
*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
