Porsche may still be gearing up for the unveiling of the Taycan at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, but the camouflage is already falling off Zuffenhausen’s first all-electric car. The development prototypes seen here have ditched all but the most egregious of disguise around the head- and tail lights, revealing pretty much the entire design of the car.

Thankfully, we’re not so easily spoofed by the fakery (the strips on the front bumper are also fake), so we can tell that the real lamps are actually pretty slim, both at the front – where they retain Porsche’s distinctive four-lamp daytime running light signature – and the back. Similar to the rest of the range, the Taycan’s tail lights run across the full width of the car.

Elsewhere, the design has been carried over mostly unchanged from the Mission E Concept from 2015 (and the subsequent Cross Turismo), sporting the same low-slung, 911-aping profile. Only the door mirrors and flush-fitting door handles have been added – they were fitted on the Cross Turismo – and the front intake has been made larger. Porsche has also thankfully ditched the fake exhausts that were on the previous mules.

Porsche previously stated that the Taycan would get two permanently synchronous electric motors that provide a total system output of over 440 kW (600 PS). The zero to 100 km/h sprint is claimed to be done in under 3.5 seconds, while the run to 200 km/h is below 12 seconds.

The EV is capable of providing a range of 500 km on a single charge (NEDC), and with fast charging on its 800-volt system, 100 km of range is available after just four minutes of charging. An earlier report states three variants will be available, including 4S and Turbo models.
