The bakkie is called the Traykan – drawing inspiration and based on the Taycan model.

It remains highly unlikely that Porsche will ever produce a bakkie.

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.

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.
