The 2025 Porsche Taycan: More Power, Longer Range, Always Exciting

Porsche Elevates the Electric Drive with the Latest Taycan Iterations


Porsche has officially unveiled the 2025 Taycan lineup. The latest models, including the Taycan Turbo Cross Turismo and Sport Turismo, come with a series of enhancements for more performance, efficiency, and updated design.

Visual updates further distinguish the new Taycan, with a reimagined front and rear aesthetic that emphasizes the vehicle’s width and sportiness. High-resolution HD matrix headlights and an illuminated Porsche logo on the rear light strip introduce a contemporary touch to the Taycan’s visual appeal.

 

Porsche has meticulously updated the Taycan’s chassis and suspension systems, ensuring an adaptable ride that balances comfort and dynamic handling. The introduction of the Porsche Active Ride suspension as an optional feature exemplifies this. Efficiency enhancements are evident in the new powertrain developments, including a more potent rear-axle motor and an optimized thermal management system. These improvements are coupled with aerodynamic refinements and the introduction of new 21-inch wheels designed to reduce rolling resistance.

On the topic of powertrains, the 2025 Taycan models boast notable improvements in power output and charging capabilities. The Taycan Turbo S now features an impressive 938 horsepower and 818 lb-ft of torque, propelling it from 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in a mere 2.4 seconds, besting nearly all current super EVs and making it the fastest production Porsche ever. This leap in performance is complemented by an enhanced recuperation system, capable of up to 400 kW at high speeds, and a larger 105 kWh Performance Battery Plus, significantly reducing charging times under ideal conditions and increasing range.

 

The Sport Chrono package introduces a “push-to-pass” feature, offering a temporary power increase of as much as 94 horsepower for 10-second bursts at a single press. This enhancement primarily contributes to the improved acceleration, notably in the Taycan Turbo S, which now boasts an additional 188 horsepower with Launch Control activated.

For the 2025 Taycan 4S, the standard configuration yields 536 horsepower and 512 lb-ft of torque using the Performance Battery. Opting for the Performance Plus Battery elevates its capability to 590 horsepower and 523 lb-ft of torque. The Taycan Turbo, on the other hand, achieves an impressive 871 horsepower and 693 lb-ft of torque.

 

Despite shedding up to 15 kilograms, the 2025 Taycan models expand their standard equipment list, adding features like ambient lighting, Porsche Intelligent Range Manager, and a heat pump with a new cooling system.

The interior meanwhile sees a comprehensive update in the control and display concept, integrating more intuitive driver assistance controls and deeper Apple CarPlay integration. The introduction of In-Car Video functionality allows for video streaming on the central and optional passenger displays.

 

Arriving at Porsche Centres in the summer, the 2025 Taycan models start at $135,600 for the Taycan 4S, with the Taycan Turbo and Turbo S priced at $196,800 and $236,100, respectively.
