Default Meet Traycan, the Porsche Pickup Truck We Will Never Get







Quote:



A truck is all that Porsche is missing from its current lineup. Even so, itís extremely hard to imagine that even in its wildest corporate dreams the carmaker would think of coming to the market with a pickup truck, even in the context where a lot of brands are rushing to jump the e-truck market.

Youíve go Tesla, of course, with the Cybertruck, then thereís Rivian and its R1T, Bollinger B2, and the future all-electric Ford F-150, plus some other equally interesting contraptions. So, where would a Taycan-based pickup truck slot in, then?

WILL PORSCHE EVER BUILD A PICKUP TRUCK? LET ALONE AN ALL-ELECTRIC ONE?

Meet Traycan, the Porsche Pickup Truck We Will Never Get

No, we donít think so. Not in the next decade, thatís for sure. However, Porsche definitely has the right kind of all-electric powertrain to fit inside a would-be pickup truck thatís performance-oriented first and foremost. For instance, thereís the 616-horsepower (670 horsepower on overboost) Taycan Turbo, capable of pulling off 0-60 mph sprints in three seconds and top speeds of 161 mph. And it gets better.

The most hardcore version of the Traycan would be the Turbo S, packing 616 horsepower (but 750 horsepower on overboost) and able of getting to 60 mph from a standstill in 2.6 seconds up to the same 161 mph top speed.


Of course, fitting an all-electric powertrain inside a pickup truck would come with its challenges. No, weíre not talking about space, but weight. A bulky pickup would itself weigh a lot more than the sports sedan the Taycan, which means added stress on Porscheís 93-kWh battery pack. In turn, you would end up with less real-world range, so instead of 290 miles, one would have to make do with maybe 200 miles or so.

With that in mind, France-based Adel Bourasí Traycan design study is a surprisingly good looking pickup truck. Sure, itís not Cybertruck when it comes to changing the paradigm but we donít want to hear about that anymore.


Adelís digitally-imagined truck looks like a Porsche alright, thanks to some neatly integrated design cues - just have a look at the 911-inspired taillights and exhaust tips. Obviously, the front end has a hefty Taycan vibe about it, although the fog projectors do make us think about the Alpine A110 quite a lot.

I'm not sure what the hell I'm looking at but I think it looks kind of cool-ish?

It looks like what the Telsa truck would have looked like had it not been styled on a dirty napkin by Elon Musk after a night spent smoking weed.
