Richard Attwood on the new Porsche Taycan

Richard Attwood on the new Porsche Taycan


Richard Attwood has a long standing history with Porsche and is a racing legend. He has lived in Wolverhampton all of his life and still lives locally to our Centre. Following the unveiling of the Porsche Taycan in September 2019 which took place simultaneoulsy in Canada, China and Germany the reviews began to build excitement and anticipation for the launch. So much so we felt it would be prudent to ask our local racing driver his thoughts on the all-new Taycan.

Mr Attwood was out in the Porsche Taycan whilst the car was over in America. Mr Attwood commented, ‘It’s a Porsche, it’s quick, the acceleration isn’t anything like what has gone before as a road car, the electric engine is responsive and instant, it’s very fast.’

"The car weighs 2.4 tonnes and is four-wheel drive but it certainly doesn’t feel like that. There is hardly any noise which I feel will take a while to get used to. In the future maybe Porsche will bring in an engine noise artificially and I'm sure as with all things Porsche create that too will be done well. The car is very clever it is certainly going to give people a wakeup call".

Once again we would like to thank Mr. Attwood for speaking with us and look forward to seeing him in the showroom at our Taycan launch in March.
