Take a break with these pretty pictures

Every few Fridays we like to bring you moments of zen in the form of some of our most favorite motorcars from around the Turo marketplace. As the country hits the road again, let’s keep the fun going. We like cars, you like cars, so let’s look at some cars.

In the world of EVs, we’re barely out of the Bronze Age (depending on who you ask). After the Tesla Model S debuted in 2012, it took until just last year for any major automaker to release a high-end EV with sports car performance and decent battery range. The Porsche Taycan is that car — it boasts the sophistication, polish, and performance that’s typical of Porsche, and most who’ve had the privilege of driving a Taycan come away very impressed.

Cory’s 2021 Porsche Taycan here is in base trim, which for 2021 means rear-wheel drive and a cheaper price tag at the dealership (2020 base models are all-wheel drive). It’s still quick with one motor in the rear — 5.1 seconds to 60 mph — and should manage over 250 miles of range with reasonable driving. Everything else you’d want with a luxury sedan, you get: the blood-red interior is laden with tech including heated and cooled seats, big touchscreens, plenty of easy connectivity, and all the safety features that are standard today.

Development of electric vehicles is on a blistering pace, and we’ll surely see even more incredible EVs over the coming years. There are now a few more options for engaging luxury EVs not named Tesla, and the Taycan is one you should definitely check out.
