WORLD EXCLUSIVE: Watch Porsche Taycan launched repeatedly by first journalist to drive it

We've watched the Porsche Taycan get incrementally closer to reality for years. Now, Jonny Smith of the "Fully Charged Show" on YouTube has become the first automotive journalist — and "the first non-Porsche employee, if you take Mark Webber out of the equation" — allowed behind the wheel of Porsche's battery electric performance car.

Which he launches. Again and again and again and again. "Fully Charged" says Smith drove it 0-to-200 km/h (124 mph) dozens of times.

"I actually felt the jowls try and leave my face then," Smith says after one blastoff at an airfield near Stuttgart. "I didn't actually know I was that jowlly. Clearly I am." He later reports an issue with his scrotum.
