Auto123 carries out a (none too) wintry test drive of the 2020 Porsche Taycan 4S.
Let me draw the picture for you: It’s late September, and like a good automotive journalist, I contact the manufacturers, as I must do periodically, to book my future road tests. Because yes, it is through those press vehicles and the reviews that come out of them that I earn my living. Of course, new models are always given priority, because it's often these that people want to hear about, even when it's a German electric sedan with a starting price of $119,400. And so I book the new all-electric Taycan for a test drive.
My idea is to put the 2020 Porsche Taycan 4S to the wintertime test, notably to appraise how the model reacts to winter weather, as well as to determine for myself if the brand's first electric proposition respects the sporting tradition established by a certain 911 more than 55 years ago.
The date I’m offered for taking the wheel of the EV is November 30th, a time of the year when the temperature is difficult to predict. But I figure I’ll chance it.
