We are proud to have the revolutionary Taycan in stock here at Porsche Englewood! Continue reading to learn more about the awards and the Taycan.

World Car of the Year: Porsche Taycan

The Porsche Taycan was released in late 2019, and has been collecting awards even before it was released. The World Car of the Year awards were evaluated by 86 international automotive journalists and they assessed over 50 vehicles this year. Michael Steiner, Member of the Executive Board and Research and Development team, received the awards. He had this to say on the experience: “This double win in the categories World Performance Car and World Luxury Car underlines what we wanted to achieve when we developed the Taycan. We wanted to create a driver-focused, fully electric sports car that can take on any Performance Car. At the same time we focused on uncompromised everyday-usability and contemporary, digital luxury and comfort for four passengers.” – Michael Steiner, via Porsche Newsroom
