The Taycan carries a legacy that is reflected by performance. The latest drive technology ensures that its performance can be repeatedly reproduced: two permanent-magnet synchronous motors (PSMs) catapult the Taycan Turbo S with up to 560kW (750 HP) Overboost Power with Launch Control from 0–60 mph in 2.6 seconds. With a standing start of 1.2g, it accelerates faster than the force of gravity for the first few yards – making it faster than a skydiver in free fall.
The Porsche soul stands for performance. In every respect. As demonstrated by the Taycan, even when charging: its 800-volt architecture accepts charge power of up to 270kW.
The interaction of the drive components produces impressive performance figures, both technically and emotionally: with up to 560kW (750 HP) overboost is activated with Launch Control, both machines accelerate the Taycan Turbo S from a standstill to 60 mph in 2.6 seconds. And this can be repeatedly reproduced: consecutive acceleration is possible, up to a top track speed of 161 mph.
The Taycan is fitted with the Porsche Active Aerodynamics system, consisting of an adaptive rear spoiler and adjustable cool air intakes, specifically for dynamic driving. Depending on the situation, the rear spoiler extends in three stages: at 56 mph, 99 mph, and 124 mph, it demonstrates where an electric vehicle becomes a sports car and a sports car becomes a Porsche.
Thanks to the Porsche Surface Coated Brakes (PSCB), your Taycan decelerates with optimized responsiveness. Or choose the extremely lightweight Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) – standard on the Taycan Turbo S. Our high performance brakes has its origins in motorsport and enables short braking distances in even the toughest conditions.
Vertical air intakes ahead of the front wheels – so called Air Curtains – also improve the aerodynamics, by guiding incoming air over the wheels like a curtain, reducing turbulence.
The ascending center console underlines the deep, sporty position of the driver's seat. This takes the form of a 14 or optionally 18-way adjustable seat¹ with integrated headrests. Recesses in the design of the battery integrated into the underbody also ensure an adequate level of comfort for rear passengers.
Standard on the Taycan Turbo S.
If the standard multifunction sport steering wheel is not sporty enough, you can maximize the motorsport feel with the optional multifunction GT sport steering wheel²: it features a mode switch, as well as a top center marking.
² In conjunction with the Sport Chrono Package; standard on the Taycan Turbo S.
The innovative Advanced Climate Control air conditioning (dual or optional four-zone) may not be visible, but is certainly noticeable: slat-free vents enable precise airflow and distribution.
The front trunk is great for smaller items like briefcases and bookbags. While the rear trunk offers 12.9 cu.ft. of storage space that can be flexibly expanded, thanks to the individually folding rear seat backrests.
Active Lane Keep, which uses longitudinal and lateral control to help keep the Taycan in lane and regulate the distance from vehicles in front, is also an integral part of this system – as is Traffic Jam Assist, which helps keep the vehicle in the middle of the lane on congested roads, for greater comfort on longer journeys.
Lane Change Assist indicates whether a vehicle is in your blind spot as you move to change lanes – extremely practical when driving on the motorway. And at night, Night Vision Assist uses an infrared camera to provide support – pedestrians and wildlife are displayed as thermal images and also highlighted in color.
Surround View ensures optimum care when parking and maneuvering using one hand. Making every inch in the Taycan a driving experience.
