More Porsche Taycan Variants Possible Including Sport Wagon

More Taycans coming?

  • Sport Turismo, convertible versions possible

  • Even a coupe could be in the cards


Immediately after the unveiling of the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo, the brand’s product boss said that there will be more versions of the electric Taycan coming. There are more wagons under consideration was well a possible convertible.

“I can’t tell you today if we are really going for something like that,” Porsche product head Stefan Weckbach told Autocar, but he added that “the platform is perfect for future additional product ideas, and we are thinking in different directions”.

What additional models could be in store for the electric Porsche? For a start, a wagon version that is less off-road oriented than the high-suspension, body cladding-kitted, and gravel-mode-equipped Cross Turismo. This is more in line with what many were expecting from the Taycan wagon, rather than the mild crossover model that appeared. This could replace or offer an alternative to the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo the automaker already offers, and would probably get the same Sport Turismo badging

A convertible version of the Taycan is also technically possible, the report said, but that before moving forward with even a concept, Porsche would need to establish if there was market demand for a version of the Taycan like that. While Taycan Cross Cabriolet has a ring to it, market research is still needed.

Weckbach said that the automaker is aware that there is demand for an entry-level 4 version of the Taycan to match the Cross Turismo’s base model, but no decisions have been made. Lastly, also possible thanks to the flexible architecture used, is a two-door version. Though that one, Autocar says, is far less likely.
