    Elon Musk asked a good question related to the Turbo version.

    What does the Turbo stand for in an all-electric car?

    Just as GT, GTO. R/T, LTD, XL........all became nomenclature for defining levels of trim, I am guessing Porsche now will now use it to define their top performing vehicles. For several years they have been putting turbos on vehicles that they don't badge as a Turbo. Go figure.

    What is so ridiculous is the "turbo" model ie there is not turbo with an electric motor just a marketing ploy to get another $50,000 for a software change.

    . No David. The Turbo is currently the "base" Taycan. You pay $35k to move to the "Turbo S".
