Porsche's new Taycan Cross Turismo is the world's quickest estate car, and it happens to be electric. It is the ethical Porsche for dog owners and family folks, and in range topping Turbo S form (as Jonny tested) it covers 0-62 in 2.9 secs with up to 760hp and an enormous 1050nm wall of torque. Knowing full well his friend Jason Plato is a habitual Porsche purchaser, handy driver and keen dog owner, in this review Jonny heads to Plato's house to get his opinion of the boot and the 0-60 boost.

Thanks for stopping by The Late Brake Show.

So what denotes it as a Cross Turismo? Roof rails, 4wd only, larger battery pack only, extra passenger headroom (plus better boot space, obvs) and raised air bag adjustable suspension.
