Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter test the Porsche Taycan in a new film “Going the Distance”

Two cars, two friends, one charge of electricity and one epic drive down the Pacific Coast Highway to the Porsche Experience Center Los Angeles

Atlanta, Georgia. Friends and Porsche enthusiasts, Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter embark on an epic road trip in Southern California that features a test of nerve, skill and – most profoundly – the new Porsche Taycan Turbo electric sports car. A series of challenges ensue that test both friends to their limits, each on closed roads.

The eight-minute film “Going the Distance” premiered today on the Porsche YouTube channel.

Throughout the film, Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are given challenges by an all-star cast. Racer and stunt driver Tanner Foust makes a guest appearance for the first stop in the film giving Reeves and Winter the chance to experience the thrill of Launch Control in a Taycan Turbo on a closed course road. Next, the two accept the subsequent challenge with Porsche Factory Race Driver, Patrick Long: a two-mile hill climb up the Pacific Coast Highway following a 918 Spyder supercar. The two round out their experience on the Porsche Experience Center Los Angeles’ track to attempt to outdo the Taycan’s drift record. The challenges were performed under supervision of professional drivers on closed course.

The Taycan Turbo is at the core of the Taycan line up – capable of accelerating from a standstill to 60 mph in just 3-seconds, it’s equipped with four wheel drive and, through its twin electric motors, it has a combined 670 hp. The Taycan is available to be tested on track and to their limits at the Porsche Experience Center Los Angeles and Atlanta – more information can be found at www.porschedriving.com.
