    Not the most exciting video but the link they provide to the background behind the Taycan name is interesting and new to me.

    The Taycan will be the first purely electric Porsche. But do you know how to pronounce its name correctly? Watch the video to find out! By the way, Taycan can be roughly translated as “lively young horse” because it embodies power and strength. If you're curious to learn more about the name, follow the link: https://christophorus.porsche.com/e...ctric-sports-car-christophorus-388-16004.html

    Huh? Whatcha smoking, Curt?

    It clearly sounded like 'tie-khan' (or 'ty-carn') to me!

    Always lovely to see the Tie-Kaaaaaan's sexy rear end. A 4-door supercar, that one, as different from your average humdrum saloon as chalk is from cheese
