Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo Gets Off-Road Modes, Almost Ready For Production

Lifted electric wagon

  • Taycan Cross Turismo to be gravel road ready

  • Electric wagon nearly finished


Porsche’s electric Taycan wagon is still on the way, and while it’s not quite yet ready for dealers, Porsche is ready to talk about it more. A lightly camouflaged Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo took to some roads new Weissach with model boss Stefan Weckbach behind the wheel while he went over some of the new model’s coolest features. Including an off-road mode.

“With the Taycan Cross Turismo, we wanted to offer a little bit more space, a little more flexibility and versatility,” Weckbach said. “We developed a completely new roofline, fitted with roof rails, a more generous second row and bigger trunk, all to make a car that is perfect for an active lifestyle. A car that is perfect for both an urban environment and the countryside.”

While we wouldn’t go so far as to call this the Taycan Outback (or is that Taycan Allroad?), but Porsche has clearly taken some steps to try and make this appeal at least a little bit to drivers who might otherwise choose a crossover. In addition to the extra cargo space the wagon body allows, they’ve also added those roof rails for extra cargo space upstairs.

Porsche has also added ground clearance and optimised the suspension for it to let the car handle some light off-roading. Think gravel roads, not forest trails, places you might not take your 911, but not so rugged you’d need a Safari-style 911. It even has a CUV driving mode to let the car better deal with gravel through changes to damping and response.

So get ready to load up your bicycle onto your Taycan Cross Turismo for a green day out, Porsche style.
