    Irrationality with a clear conscience

    Electric cars are viewed as environmentally friendly and future-oriented. Now, however, e-mobility has also reached the category of sports cars and supercars. Although the Porsche Taycan is one of the more docile examples, it still offers ample electric power. We had the opportunity to drive the stylish four-door Taycan while pondering the sense and nonsense of electric sports cars.
