Here's Why the 2020 Porsche Taycan Is the Best Modern Porsche

Pubblicato il 3 dic 2019
The 2020 Porsche Taycan is the best new Porsche -- and one of the most important cars of the year. Today I'm reviewing the Taycan to show you all around it, and show you all of its quirks and features. Then I'm going to drive the Porsche Taycan Turbo S, to show you how it performs on the road.

  • Welcome to Dougcember!

  • People say it's Taycan(Tai-khan) Taycan(taken) Taycan(Tai-ken) Which one is it??

  • A little quirk in the dashboard, -screen, is the little gaspump indicating your range. Hahaha... a gaspump.

  • nice

  • Teslas gonna be the poor man's Taycan.

  • Porsche still doesnt what UI/UX is...

  • Four-door Porsche - Ferdinand rolling in his grave.

  • Did I miss something, did Doug actually review a car with a glove box and not open it? I'm having an anxiety attack, what does the inside of the Taycan glove box look like? I need to know.

  • I would buy it if I had the money no questions ask. If they make a wagon version then I will rob a bank and buy it lol.

  • When the 4 seats car with small trunk is equal (in practical way) to BMW M5 or E63S Wagon you know, there is something wrong.

  • looks cool

  • great car

  • If this was a Tesla this would look hella different

  • Some RICH IDIOT is gonna give this to their kid as a first car and the LAW SUITS WILL FLY faster than than this car can go!


  • . The vents are basically the most precise on the planet now. If you’ve placed it 1 time right, no one can’t replace it while cleaning the car or whatever. Very clever.

  • Dude, 2,6 seconds to 100 (60), it’s Bugatti level. I’m surprised that you’re surprised xD. And don’t let us forget, driving an 800hp car like crazy, makes the fuel also empty as quick as f^^. The point is, that no one drives a Porsche everyday just for speed, for that you have special cars, that’s why it’s ok to me that you can race mode only 60-90 minutes.

  • I’m left handed that screen wouldn’t work for me 😂

  • only porsche gets away with calling an electric car TURBO lol

  • Very nice appliance with lots of buttons, soccer moms rejoice.

  • This is the mclaren of porsche

  • All cool, but why do the manufacturers need to make such futuristic design just because it's electric driven cars?! there were thousands of electric cars in the streets of New York 100 years ago! My god, it's nothing new !

  • Should've been a two door

  • @24:45 douggie got a little irritated over nothing, which is ironic because his annoyance is based on others being irritated over nothing 😂😂😂

  • When this Porsche can match the mileage of a 2010 Tesla model S and has super chargers I might be interested.

  • Nice car

  • Y’all white people is so weird “ no u can’t ride with your spoiler up so people stare at u” so is that why i see white people ride with there spoiler up cause think it’s cool and want to be starred at? wow weird🤨

  • He forgot the launch control lol

  • Now this car can Go from 0 to 60 in 2sec. And it doesn't make any auditable sound. My question is, are we as a society going out of our FUCKING minds 🙄😐

  • "eeerrghhhh... pEoPlE" is the most Doug thing i've ever heard

  • Too many adds! I understand one or two, but one every couple minutes? GRRRRR

  • Was going to say his reaction to flooring it was the best part of the video till I got the comments where someone said he sounded like yoda at 16:19

  • 4s Haha. RC car and airplane guys would get that one.


  • do you really think that the Audi TT™ has a Twin Turbo® in it ? lol

  • I like every angle except the front

  • He was way too fascinated by the charge port sensor.

  • Its a soulless battery skelter. Don't want.

  • And all Tesla Fanboys hatin‘

  • Just look at the size of those brake calipers holy shitt

  • The Trailblazer could blaze a trail, the Highlander could be In the highlands and the Avalanche could be in an Avalanche, however the Taycan Turbo S does not have a Turbo... therefore it is a stupid name

  • “If you don’t want to touch this screen, touch THIS screen” - Porsche

  • It's a Porsche, it has alot of HP, is fast as hell and all that - but it is ugly like sh*t, sorry guys...

  • who else wanted to see the camera being washed...? 22:40


  • You came here to see 28:17. You're WELCOME

  • I tend to disagree with you on the naming and I say that as someone who strongly disregards or I should write disagrees with the internet "culture" of the sensationalist and grandstanding kind. If you have the attention to notice a panel which seems to be interrupting with the interior build quality, which, the attention I mean, is a trait that I personally appreciate, in case it is not actually a durable material and in case there is no technical explanation or one pertaining to safety for said panel not being covered, then I would also expect a more nuanced view in regards to the naming. I do not intend this to come across as a lecture but regarding the Chevrolet Avalanche that you mention, the "Avalanche" is the model name. In this case, in their tradition, "Taycan" is the rather graceful model name while "turbo" obviously derives from turbocharged, which then again should mean that there is a turbocharger present. I acknowledge that a larger capacity, perhaps higher performance and or additional accumulator can be interpreted as providing a "turbine" to the vehicle's charging. Though at the same time I think that it is not unreasonable to see this adaptation, which may also have been intended to ease the switch from the charms but also the relatively widely acknowledged challenges of a combustion engine, especially if it was an intentional marketing tactic, as capricious to a certain degree or at least as debatable. In regards to the examples of model names with numbers not or not accurately representing the abilities of their engines that you mention, I would think that these could be seen critically too. This really is not meant to impose anything or to impair creativity but to acknowledge that the purchase of a vehicle is not something ordinary for most and in this case it is something relatively expensive. There also lies a responsibility in the hands of such a large company. Is it out of the question to have named the base model the "Taycan", the balanced intermediate model the "Taycan M" and the highest performing model the "Taycan S" or would that then have clashed with clothing size conventions? Heh. Aside from this, from a visual point of view and acknowledging that this would have turned the general production vehicle impractical, I actually tend to prefer the bolder shape of the concept vehicle.

  • Doug slides his finger to open the charging port...then secretly smells it and gives it a score.

  • I'm no good I'll paint it maron and put in 26in rims

  • Beautiful car. Thing is that now i can wait 10 years and afford most Porsche. But in 10 years all that tech will be broken with no parts, obsolete, or have a completely dead battery that cost 20,000 to replace. Engines can sit for 50 years and with a few days of TLC run like new. Batteries go bad if they are used or if they sit for that long.

  • That is such a cheap climate control system for the rear passengers considering it is a $150K car. The I-PACE has more sophisticated rear controls at half the price.

  • Idk man, Roadster is much more impressive, has much better stats than this car

  • I've never had my model s go over 290 miles and that was mostly driving downhill as well.

  • All the guys who are going to disable the sensors in the spoiler so that it stays up all the time... oh no..

  • Yeah these new fast electric cars are such sleepers too, when I drove my brother's Tesla on Ludicrous Mode, not only does it make the hair stand up on your head (on a dead stop full pedal launch), but it is so completely quiet it is very eerie, for someone coming from the old hot rod days of loud V8's with lumpy idle cams... To think that a car could be so fast from a launch without having traction issues and no noise. They almost need like a racing engine sound which could play an engine sound effect in the stereo system to simulate engine racket as you're racing around the track... Maybe someday electric cars will have exhaust trumpets on the back to simulate different kinds of engine sounds and it will just be a novelty hehe (like an aftermarket bolt-on or something)...

  • What a plonker! 192 miles range is exciting? If you drive like Miss Daisy. Ok for a track day.

  • I remember remote control cars that had a “turbo” setting, which just makes the motor go faster. The Rc car of course doesn’t literal have a turbo. Same kinda deal. In fact, I didn’t even know what a turbo was until fast and furious and the whole tuning scene. I just assumed it meant fast

  • Me: hey my fancy buttons on screen for my everything doesn’t work how much would cost to fix it? Porsche: Hahahahhaha

  • It is called Taikaahn because that's the German name of it and how you pronounce it in German. You'd expect non-English speakers to properly pronounce your English names as well. It's New York and not Neff jork.

  • The team really did a great job encapsulating the presence of an EV with the beauty of the Porsche design language. I love it.
