How much did the Taycan tour cost?

The tour, which was completed on November 12, 2021 and only in the last few days was recognized by the Guinness Book of Records, cost $76.82 in recharges from Electrify America stations.

“Today, I can’t cross the country in a gasoline or diesel vehicle for that small amount, and I’m driving an exotic high-performance sports car,” Wayne Gerdes said at the time.

It develops 598 hp (440 kW), accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and has a top speed of 250 km/h. But what really stands out is its autonomy of 504 kilometers, the largest in the entire range.
