New Porsche Taycan GTS Sport Turismo unveiled at Los Angeles Motor Show

Porsche has bolstered the Taycan range with a new Sport Turismo estate and a new GTS model

  • New Sport Turismo estate is the third variant in the Taycan lineup
  • Will be available in new sporty GTS trim level
  • On sale next spring starting from £104,190

The new Porsche Taycan Sport Turismo estate has been revealed alongside a new GTS model. The new estate was unveiled at the Los Angeles Motor Show and is the third variant of the brand’s flagship performance electric car, alongside the Taycan saloon and the Taycan Cross Turismo.

From the front, the Taycan Sport Turismo looks identical to the saloon but from the windscreen backwards its sleek estate design is shared with the rugged Cross Turismo, albeit with a lower ride height and none of the body cladding. While full specifications are yet to be revealed, the Sport Turismo will offer up to 1,200 litres of rear cargo space.

The GTS, meanwhile, is a model that slots into the Taycan hierarchy beneath the Turbo and is billed as more driver-focused than the 4S beneath it. It goes on sale in spring 2022, with a starting price of £104,190 for the Taycan GTS saloon, increasing to £104,990 for the Taycan GTS Sport Turismo. 

Tweaks for the GTS version of the Taycan are familiar from existing GTS models elsewhere in the Porsche lineup. Those include darkened exterior trim, new black alloy wheels and a darker interior colour scheme that incorporates Race-Tex trim. Other changes include a modified Electric Sport Sound System, meaning the GTS variant has its own unique ‘engine’ sound signature. 

All-wheel drive is standard on the GTS, with dual-motors producing a total of 590bhp on overboost when using the launch control function. The car gets from 0-62mph in 3.7 seconds in both saloon and Sport Turismo variants. Top speed is limited to 155mph. 

Other changes unique to the GTS include a modified setup for the adaptive air suspension system, which includes Porsche Adaptive Suspension Management. Elsewhere, the optional rear-wheel steering system has been adjusted to give the GTS a sportier feel than the regular Taycan. 

The Taycan GTS comes with the larger 93.4kWh battery as standard and, thanks to a powertrain efficiency update that was rolled out earlier this year, can return up to 313 miles of range on a single charge. Rapid charging at up to 270kW is standard, meaning a five-minute charge can add around 60 miles of range.
