Porsche's very pink new electric Taycan can auto-park

Being pink isn't a feature per se, but it is easy on the eyes.

The 2022 all-electric Porsche Taycan is here and it’s a lot of things (fast, high-tech, very Porsche-y) but most noticeably...

It’s extremely pink

On an unofficial scale of pinkness, the new Taycan — set to be released later this year — is somewhere between Patrick Star and Barney, which for a lot of other cars might be a major turn-off, but for something as sporty as a Porsche, is very fitting.

The official color name, by the way, is “Rubystar Red” and it’s a 90s throwback

Other colors, which are also throwbacks to ‘90s-era Porsche, will include Moonlight Blue Metallic, Acid Green, Riviera Blue, and Viola Metallic.

On top of its unadulterated pinkness, the 2022 Taycan will have faster charging according to Porsche (though it’s unclear exactly how fast), Android Auto, and will also boast some pretty nifty remote parking features.

“With the new Remote Park Assist option, it is possible to remotely control parking maneuvers via a smartphone when driving into and out of parking spaces without the driver needing to be behind the wheel.”


Using an app, drivers can direct their Porsche to park in either parallel or perpendicular spots automatically. The EV uses ultrasonic sensors and exterior cameras to line up its maneuver and then begin the parking job.


Drivers can leave the car while it parks, but to actually carry out the process, they’ll have to hold down a button on the app interface while they watch. A hitch that’s a bit of a bummer but not exactly surprising. A driver can stop the auto-park function by lifting their finger from the app.


There are still some major open questions on the 2022 Taycan. For example, we still don’t know exactly what the EPA range estimate is (the 2021 model’s range is around 220 miles). Pricing also remains to be seen, but it’s a Porsche, so we’re going to guess it won’t come cheap.
