If you were watching the Super Bowl on February 2nd, you might have caught Porsche’s first television advertisement in twenty three years. In an effort to reach a new customer base, Porsche featured the all-electric Taycan. In this advertisement, employees working in the Porsche Museum race along the countryside trying to catch their coworker who is driving the Taycan. The goal was to highlight the features of the Taycan and how they compare to Porsche’s gas-powered cars. If the advertisement sparked your interest, here is a breakdown of the Taycan and how it truly compares to the other Porsche cars shown in the ad.
