The Porsche Taycan was announced in 2015 at the FrankFurt Motor show and was then revealed at the 2019 FrankFurt Motor show in production form. The Taycan was due to be a concept in 2015 but will now be mass-produced in 2020. The Taycan is a all electric 4 seater,4 door GT. It will be the first fully electric car made by Porsche. The standard Porsche Taycan will will emit 390 kW, it will have 472 lb.ft of torque, it will weigh 4,718 lb, it will do 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds and will have a top speed of 155 mph(limited). This all adds up to the Porsche Taycans whopping 523 bhp which isn't bad at all for a GT car.
I think everybody here knows what the Porsche Taycans bodywork looks like so I'll just state the obvious. There is a new rear light that is twinned much alike the new Panameras. The interior is very odd. I don't know what to make of it. I don't like the new seat design, I think it looks very weird but I don't mind the new centre-console as it has this new screen which shows the performance statistics of the car. I don't get enough of that GT feeling on the interior. I have selected the Porsche Taycan as the best car of 2020 because you guys love it and I strongly believe that EGT's (electric-grand-tourer)could be a new type of car and may set up for many different companies to make one.

The BMW was first announced at the FrankFurt Motor show and was then seen in production form at the Geneva Motor show. BMW have placed a fake large grill on it and I think it was necessary. The grill wouldn't have worked if it was medium and works much better large or small. The i4 is a all-electric BMW fastback styled Sedan car. It will have 4 doors and will be a new face to the road when it is released in 2021. It will have 5 doors and 5 seats.
The BMW i4 is set to be a fastback so there is no incredible performance expected. However, this all electric BMW will actually surprise many as it can produce a whopping 523 bhp, the torque is currently unknown but we do know that it will do 0-62 in 4.0 seconds and will have a range of 375 miles. The i4 will have a top speed of 124 mph. Now taking into account that this isn't a GT and is a fastback I think the i4 deserved 4 stars!
There is a new design on the exterior. I think that BMW have kept the iconic grill even if its fake. For BMW to become electric and lose the iconic grill would be losing more than a grill, I think the fake grill is the right way to go. On the interior it is simply incredible. The smooth blend of wood and brown leather is incredible. They have kept the round steering wheel which is always great to see.

Mercedes-Benz Maybach 6 Cabriolet
The Mercedes-Benz Maybach 6 Cabriolet was first seen as a concept car at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in 2016. The Maybach is thought to be released as a GT car in the next 5 years. Lewis Hamilton was involved in the design of this, so it'll be good.
The performance exceeds extraordinary. The Maybach will produce 731 bhp. It is a mid-engined all wheel drive. It has 4 electric motors which contribute to the 731 bhp. Not much has been announced on the mass-produced Maybach.
The exterior of the Maybach is incredible. It will have new gull-winged engine which was actually common in older cars. The car itself is quite long and on the coupe the doors are gull-wings but on the convertible they are standard. The Maubach 6 is due to cost about £1,600,000 British Pounds and $2,000,000 US dollars. Ther interior is very luxurious and possibly will redefine our meaning of luxury. There is a new futuristic centre console which shows false electric traveling through it. Mercedes have kept the classic steering wheel and have plated all buttons with chrome and leather. The seats have a new design made of leather and memory foam.
