Is the Porsche Taycan GTS Sport Turismo a good car?

The Porsche Taycan Sport Turismo is a high-performance electric vehicle that combines family practicality with driving thrills. It’s basically the same as the Taycan saloon, but with an extra bit tacked on – like adding a conservatory to your already lovely house. 

The overall design is very sleek and you get the same front-end design as you do with the regular Taycan ‘saloon’. But rather than the roof sloping down where the rear seats are, you get an extended top line with a lip spoiler at the end. 

Unlike the other estate-like Taycan, the Cross Turismo, the Sport Turismo sits lower down to the road, and with some stylish alloy wheel choices it looks very cool indeed.

Inside, you’ll find a high-end interior that gives you all you might ever need while driving. There are two huge displays – one for the instrument binnacle and the other for the central infotainment system. You can add an additional screen for your front passenger too, so they can see just how fast you’re going, but that is an optional extra. 

Overall interior space is pretty good, but those who are a bit taller might want to avoid the back seats, as the roofline does limit headroom – just like in the regular Taycan. You can choose to have five seats, but making the middle seat available does cost extra. It’s not the most comfy spot in the car either. 

Choosing the estate-car style does gain you some extra practicality when it comes to luggage capacity. You get 39 additional litres over the regular Taycan, with the boot measuring 446 litres. Instead of a smaller saloon-style tailgate, you get a proper hatchback boot opening too – which makes it far easier to load and unload heavy, bulky items. Up front, you’ll find the same 84-litre ‘froot’, which is a perfect place to store your charge cables.

With plenty of performance through all the models, the mid-level GTS is the sweet spot of the Sport Turismo line-up.

But rather than practicality, Porsche has built its name on performance, and the Taycan Sport Turismo has five power options to choose from. Ranging from 408hp up to 762hp, you have a good spectrum to choose from. 

The sweet spot is the GTS, where you have 598hp. That allows a 0-60mph time of 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 155mph. The performance itself is pretty brutal in its sportiest mode, but day to day, the acceleration is pretty handy when you’re driving with a more comfortable setup. 

A major consideration for most EV buyers though is a car’s range, and the Sport Turismo can have a decent return. Choosing the Performance Plus Battery means you can travel up to a claimed 306 miles on one charge, but you’re more likely to see somewhere closer to 250 miles with plenty of motorway driving. 

When you attack a back road, it’s definitely at the top of the electric car segment for driving fun. But with its extra weight, it isn’t one of the most fun models Porsche makes, but that’s what you have to accept with an EV.

Around town, the adaptive air suspension irons out most bumps the road will throw at it, while optional rear wheel steering means that there’s less hassle on making tighter turns. 

If you’re in the market for a high-end EV with performance credentials, then the Taycan Sport Turismo is arguably the best you can choose – even if Tesla wants you to think otherwise.
