The new Taycan GTS is the first electrified car from Porsche to receive the legendary Gran Turismo Sport designation. Well known to purists, GTS traditionally refers to vehicles offering sharper handling and better performance on the track while maintaining a good level of comfort for daily use.

The Porsche Taycan GTS will be similar in its mission while promising a range of 500 kilometers (310 miles) on the WLTP cycle, which is about 20 (12 miles) kilometers more than the current Taycan with the performance battery.

It will be positioned between the Taycan 4S and the Taycan Turbo with 590 horsepower (440 kW) of maximum power and it will be able to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.7 seconds. The Taycan GTS will be available as a sedan as well as a Sport Turismo version, a third configuration for the Taycan family.

Like other GTS models in the Porsche lineup, the Taycan GTS will receive standard equipment from the Porsche performance menu. Examples include the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) which will be offered at no extra charge. In addition, the directional rear wheels are improved to provide even better handling and the sound of the Porsche electric Sport Sound system has been improved as well and made more distinctive.

Visually, the Taycan GTS stands out with its black elements on the mirrors, sills and window surrounds. A Race-Tex finish sets the interior apart.

The Sport Turismo model is positioned between the sedan and the Cross Turismo. It is like the latter with a wagon look and better versatility, but with a more on-road and less off-road vocation unlike the Cross Turismo.

Headroom in the Sport Turismo is 45 millimeters more generous, while cargo space reaches 1,200 liters.

Another novelty in the Porsche Taycan GTS is the addition of a panoramic roof with liquid crystal surface. This surface can change from clear to matte which reduces glare inside while preserving brightness.
