What better way to kick off the 24 Hour Le Mans Season Opener than by driving the new safety car, a Porsche Taycan Turbo, from the automaker’s experience center in Hockenheim? That’s exactly what happened, using the vehicle’s battery-electric all-wheel-drive drivetrain with a permanent-magnet synchronous motor on each axle generating 671 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to Porsche Destination Charging, making sure the Taycan is charged was a breeze. Guests of selected hotels, golf courses and marinas can also access these 1,000+ charging points across 20 countries.
