If the Porsche Taycan electric sedan doesn’t give you heart palpitations, then check out the Audi E-Tron GT. Set to arrive for 2022, the stunningly shaped all-wheel-drive fastback uses the same platform as the Porsche, as well as the air suspension and battery system (both brands are part of the Volkswagen Group). The E-Tron GT’s two electric motors — one at each end — produce up to 640 combined horsepower. A single-speed transmission connects to the front motor and a two-speed unit is attached to the rear motor, which is similar to the Taycan’s layout. The GT’s estimated 200 miles of range is also equal to the Taycan’s. Expect to pay at least $100,000 for this exotic electric Audi.
