Porsche launches new station wagon model by Taycan


More practical than the standard car – and without the terrain characteristics of Cross Turismo. Now Porsche has launched a third version of its Taycan. In addition, the electric car is also offered in a new GTS version.

Do you like the idea of ​​a slightly more spacious and more practical version of Taycan, but at the same time not appealed to by Cross Tourism’s focus on off road?

World premiere in Los Angeles

Then Porsche now has an alternative that should fit better. Sport Turismo is the alternative that lies in between, and which has now been launched at the motor show in Los Angeles.

The big difference is that you avoid the plastic details around the wheel arches and the increased ground clearance, but have to keep the larger luggage and extra headroom. Or as the manufacturer itself says: The same versatile user-friendliness, without sacrificing road performance.

New power package from Porsche

But a new station wagon model in the Taycan stable was not the only news that Porsche had to offer in Los Angeles. The manufacturer has also developed another version of the electric car called GTS. For those of you who know the sports car manufacturer’s history, the GTS (Gran Turismo Sport) is something that has been on cars since the 904 Carrera GTS from 1963.

So what do you get if you choose the GTS? Well, the variant ends up between 4s and Turbo in the palette and that means 440 kW / 598 horsepower as maximum power with boost. Something that can be converted to an acceleration of 0-100 km / h in 3.7 seconds on the way up to a top speed of 250 km / h.

Then the Porsche Taycan GTS will come to Sweden

Furthermore, the manufacturer says that the adaptive air suspension is specially adapted, and that you should also get “a stronger sound image” for artificial engine sound. Of course, the car also comes with details that are specific to GTS, so that it can be seen that you do not “just” drive a 4S.

The first GTS cars (both Taycan GTS and Taycan Sport Turismo GTS) will arrive in Sweden in the spring of 2022.

– The Taycan model series has steadily continued to grow since the world premiere in 2019. Three body variants with up to five engine options offer something for everyone, says Kevin Giek, head of the Taycan model series in a statement.

“Something for everyone” should, however, be seen in the light of Mr. Giek talking about Porsche buyers. The starting price for GTS is SEK 1,460,000, and the cheapest Taycan starts at SEK 980,000.
