What applied to the legendary model 356 from 1948, applies even more so to the Taycan, the Taycan Cross Turismo and the new Taycan GTS Sport Turismo: a vehicle concept that reflects changing automotive times requires a dedication to the latest technology combined with the unique Porsche soul.
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.
Gravel mode is reserved for the Cross Turismo and optimizes driving in easy terrain, for example over gravel or mud. For even more freedom – also off the beaten track.
The Launch Control function also produces maximum acceleration from a standing start. It can be activated in both Sport and Sport Plus mode to prepare all systems for a rapid get-away – and delivers incredible power to the tarmac: in the first 2.5 seconds, the Taycan Turbo S covers more ground than a 918 Spyder.
Directly above these is the highlight of the front: four-point LED headlights¹ with Matrix Design that combine all the light functions in a single component and appear to be floating.
The silhouette is characterized by a dynamic, flat flyline. Flush, automatically extending door handles open the vehicle interior with its deep, sporty seating position.
There are two roof options: the contoured variant made of lightweight aluminum with an indentation in the middle creates a shape that is known to us from motorsport. Alternatively, a panoramic fixed glass roof provides an open, airy feeling.
The rear design boasts a seamless light strip and ‘PORSCHE’ logo made of three-dimensional letters in a glass look. Above these are the Porsche Active Aerodynamics (PAA) in the form of a three-stage rear spoiler system.
In the Taycan Cross Turismo and Taycan GTS Sport Turismo, Porsche Connect has been expanded to include innovative services. Above all, Voice Pilot, which uses the keyword, "Hey Porsche", to provide a natural, intuitive native speech recognition. Your car will respond to statements such as "I'm cold" and multimodal operation using both touch and voice commands is also possible: point to the map and say "Start navigation", for example.
Another highlight is the seamless integration of Apple Music® directly into PCM. Simply tap the Apple Music icon to stream over 90 million ad-free songs and playlists for every driving scenario. Or create your own custom station on Apple Music based on the current radio song.
The Taycan Cross Turismo and new Taycan GTS Sport Turismo don't just offer their drivers and passengers a comfortable travel experience with plenty of space. They offer flexible storage areas. The front luggage compartment is complemented by an enlarged rear boot, which can be extended from 446 liters¹ to a total of 1,212 liters¹ when the rear seat backrests are folded down. In addition, the functional and foldable luggage compartment cover can be easily stowed behind the rear seats and the vehicle can be conveniently loaded and unloaded via the enlarged tailgate.
The arrangement is also driver-focused, as is typical of Porsche: the instrument cluster is the center of attention, consisting of a 16.8-inch curved display and surrounded by control panels with Direct Touch Control for selecting lighting and chassis functions.
As part of intelligent Porsche InnoDrive including adaptive cruise control, the system increases the prediction horizon to up to 1.8 miles. With the aid of navigation data and information supplied by the radar and video sensors, it determines speed limits and topographical road features long before you reach them and modifies the speed and gearshift strategy to suit the selected driving mode.
Another feature of Porsche InnoDrive including Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is Active Lane Keep, which combines Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and lane-keeping functionality. The system follows the queue of traffic ahead and lane markings, within the limits of the system, and keeps the vehicle in the middle of the lane by continuous steering adjustments – even in congested conditions. For appreciable stress relief and greater comfort on long journeys.
Lane Change Assist indicates whether a vehicle is in your blind spot as you move to change lanes. And at night, Night Vision Assist uses an infrared camera to provide support– pedestrians and wildlife are displayed as thermal images.
If you prefer your Taycan to park itself while you remain in the vehicle, Active Parking Support takes over the steering and the forward and reverse movements of your Taycan. Surround View 3D gives you optimum control when manually parking and leaving a parking space by allowing you to manage the perspective yourself. Maneuvering Assist, Exit Warning and the Exit Maneuver Warning provide even more comfort.

1) To achieve the stated charging time for corresponding state of charge range, the following is required: a 50kW CCS DC fast charging station and a battery temperature range of 86°-95°F. For physical and chemical reasons, the charging speed decreases as the battery approaches its full capacity. Charging speeds over 80% state of charge are significantly slower and not recommended for daily use.
2) To achieve the stated charging time for corresponding state of charge range, the following is required: a CCS DC fast charging station with > 270kW and > 850V and a battery temperature range of 86°-95°F. For physical and chemical reasons, the charging speed decreases as the battery approaches its full capacity. Charging speeds over 80% state of charge are significantly slower and not recommended for daily use. For regular fast DC charging usage, we recommend charging at 50kW stations.
