The Taycan. Soul, electrified.

Porsche turns up the pace of marketing the Taycan as the unveiling is getting closer and closer. Here is a new ad/teaser called "Hey Electricity, get ready for the Taycan."

Porsche pretends to make the Taycan compelling and mentions "numb" electricity that will "feel again". The video ends with:

"The first all-electric Porsche. Coming soon."

"The Taycan. Soul, electrified."

And the video description adds:

"Some romantic gestures are bigger than others. Can’t wait for our next date."
