Porsche is well known for their rich line-up of electric and performance models, but designer Adel Bouras rendered images of what their bakkie would look like. And so, meet the Traykan.
As the name suggests, the bakkie borrows inspiration from the all-electric Taycan model - though it remains improbable that the German brand would ever build one.
According to MotorTrend, it closely resembles a Cayenne, with a quadrant of pinpoint LED accents and higher ground clearance.
Do you think Porsche would ever enter the electric bakkie or SUV market with a model similar to the 'Traykan'? Please email us, or share your thoughts in the comments section below.
The age of bakkies
While the likes of Peugeot, Hyundai and Renault all have their own examples, the overseas electric bakkie market is hotly-contested with Tesla's Cybertruck and Rivian's R1T, the most notable names.
Mercedes-Benz was the last premium manufacturer to try their hand at building a bakkie, but that didn't go to plan, and the X-Class was promptly discontinued all around the world.
At this point, anyone's assumption is correct where technical specifications are concerned because the Traykan will only live in rendered illustrations.
