The charging point was developed by Porsche Engineering and sets new standards for charging time where five minutes of charging gets you 100 km of driving range.

It is Europe’s most powerful rapid-charging centre with a total capacity of seven megawatts, from electricity generated from renewable energy sources.

And it’s not just for Porsche vehicles. Twelve rapid charging points with 350 kW (direct current) and four charging points with 22 kW (alternating current) which run seven days a week, round the clock, caters to customers of all vehicle brands.

At least, the “turbo” moniker makes sense here. With their latest electric 4-door supercar, the Taycan is offered in two variants – the Turbo and the Turbo S – when they’re not even equipped with internal combustion engines to begin with.

No matter, the power both make more than justifies it with 625 hp and 1050 Nm of torque allowing the Turbo to get from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds and the Turbo S in just 2.8 seconds.
