Hennessey goes electric with the Taycan!
The short version:
- Hennessey Performance Engineering has chosen the Porsche Taycan to be their first electric vehicle project.
- The first round of modifications will focus on wheels, tires, front and rear bumpers, and interior upgrades.
- “We don’t want to reinvent the wheel in the electrified market, we just want to make it roll a little faster and cooler!” -John Hennessey.
It will be interesting to watch how this unfolds. Hennessey has 28 years of experience in turning out insanely powerful ICE vehicles. If he puts that know-how into an EV then the possibilities seem endless. However, is he ready to straddle the ICE/EV fence? Sounds like some of his customers are die-hard ICE fans, and doing so might hurt his bottom line a bit. But if he doesn’t put his best into the Taycan, and some other performance house outdoes him that’s going to hurt as well.
What do you think? Will Hennessey go all in?
