Car lovers have always worshiped at the altar of internal combustion, but as the winds shift toward hybridization and electric power, our favorite automaker is proudly showing the way. Leading the charge is Porsche’s all-electric sport sedan, the 2020 Taycan. Check out our first drive. We also delve into the technology behind the Taycan in an-depth look, “Breaking New Ground.” Csaba Csere makes educated guesses about Porsche’s future EV and hybrid offerings in “The Future Is Electric.” We also take a look at Porsche’s efforts in the "Eclectic and Electric" Formula E race series, and we learn about the challenges faced by Chris Lennon when he converted his hill-climb car to full electric for a "Peak Run" charge up Pikes Peak. For those not ready to switch completely to electric, we drive the Panamara Turbo S E-Hybrid and the Cayenne E-Hybrid.

All that and the latest news, race information, and reports from our regions.
