Earlier on this week Porsche unveiled the all-new Taycan GTS and Taycan GTS Sport Turismo at the the 2021 LA Auto Show. The Sport Turismo is the automaker’s 3rd body version of the first all-electric Porsche model. The Taycan GTS and Taycan GTS Sport Turismo are positioned above the Taycan 4S and below the Taycan Turbo derivatives, so it represents a real sweet spot in the range.
The sporty all-rounder has an impressive 440 kW of overboost power when using Launch Control. The sprint from 0 to 100km/h can be achieved in both body variants within 3.7 seconds. The maximum speed of the duo is 250 km/h.
Both GTS models are equipped with adaptive air suspension, including Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), which has been specifically adapted to the GTS, to the benefit of the lateral dynamics. The set-up of the optional rear-axle steering is also even sportier. The richer sound pattern of the modified Porsche Electric Sport Sound underscores the character of the new GTS model.
The exterior and interior of the Taycan GTS models are distinctive. There are numerous Black or dark details on the exterior, such as the front apron, the bases of the exterior mirrors and the side window trims – as is traditional on a GTS. Numerous Black Race-Tex features in the interior underscore the elegant, dynamic ambience, as does the standard brushed aluminium interior package with Black anodised finish.
The Taycan GTS Sport Turismo’s headroom in the rear is more than 45 millimetres greater than that in the Taycan sports saloon, and the load capacity under the large tailgate is more than 1,200 litres. A panoramic roof with Sunshine Control is available as a new optional extra for the Taycan GTS.
