The Porsche Taycan will be available in a three-engine version

The trimotor Taycan will be a direct rival to the Tesla Model S Plaid

The Porsche Taycan is one of the most powerful and fastest electric cars currently available, although if there is a (healthy) rivalry in the automotive sector, it is the one created with this Porsche model and the Tesla Model S.

For several months and even years now, both vehicles have been setting best times on the famous Nürburgring circuit, which is such a demanding circuit that it serves to fine-tune new models and also to get to know how good and fast a car in question is.

The Porsche Taycan and the Tesla Model S have been all this time smashing these times creating this rivalry between the two models to be the fastest mass-produced electric car under the Nürburgring circuit.

Now several internal Porsche reports suggest that the German brand is preparing its new electric ‘bullet’ to smash its previous times and equip the already popular Porsche Taycan with three electric motors, thus matching the number of motors in the Tesla Model S Plaid, which is also equipped with three powerful electric motors.

The addition of a further electric motor would increase the Porsche Taycan’s power output considerably and could result in a record time that even the Tesla Model S Plaid could not achieve, at least in the first instance.

Electric motors are generally already more powerful than combustion engines, which means we have more powerful road vehicles with more than considerable acceleration, even so there are certain brands and models that have to squeeze the most out of these elements to continue making a difference compared to the rest, as is the case of Porsche, a premium luxury brand whose origin is sporty DNA.

For the moment Porsche has not made any statement on the matter but it would not be surprising if it takes this direction in order to maintain its position in the automotive sector.
