The Porsche Taycan range explained

April 08, 2022 by

Porsche is forever updating its range of Taycan models, and it can be tricky to keep track of which is which. Keep reading for all you need to know about these cars.

Currently you can have a traditional saloon, the Cross Turismo estate or the Sport Turismo estate. Below is a breakdown of the differences between these models.

Porsche Taycan saloon

The Porsche Taycan saloon was the car that started it all. It’s four-door-coupe shape looks fantastic, but does mean that it’s slightly less roomy inside than its estate counterparts.

The entry-level Taycan saloon has rear-wheel drive and 408hp. Next-up is the Taycan 4S, which has all-wheel drive and 530hp.

The Taycan GTS has 598hp, all-wheel drive and a slightly sportier suspension setup. Then you have the Turbo and top-of-the-range Turbo S, which both have all-wheel drive and 680hp and 761hp respectively.

Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo

The Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo is a sporty estate (sometimes called a shooting brake) version of the Taycan. It gets a larger boot than the saloon, along with a taller ride height and rugged-looking cladding over the car.

You can also spec an off-road pack that includes additional body protection and different driving modes for tackling slightly rougher terrain.

The Taycan Cross Turismo range starts with the Taycan 4, which gets all-wheel drive and 476hp. Then there’s the 4S with 471hp, the Turbo with 680hp and the top-of-the-range Turbo S with 761hp.

Porsche Taycan Sport Turismo

If you fancy a blend of the Porsche Taycan saloon’s sportiness and the Cross Turismo’s estate practicality, then the Taycan Sport Turismo is for you. It has the exact same body shell as the Cross Turismo estate, with the underpinnings and engaging driving character of the saloon.

The Sport Turismo is available in all the same variants as the Taycan saloon. This means you get a base rear-wheel-drive model with 408hp, the 4S with 530hp, the GTS with 598hp, the Turbo with 680hp and the Turbo S with 762hp. All but the entry-level model get all-wheel drive.

Porsche Taycan range: Mat’s pick

The sweet spot in the Porsche Taycan range has to be the Porsche Taycan GTS Sport Turismo. It offers all the driving thrills of the saloon, but still offers estate practicality.

It’s also nowhere near as expensive as the top-spec Turbo S, but still has blistering performance and it drives brilliantly.
