Sportier Taycan GTS and Sport Turismo GTS priced from S$580k, features more power and first Taycan model with more than 500km range


Stuttgart / Los Angeles – Porsche has announced the inevitable GTS model of the Taycan large electric sedan today at the Los Angeles Motor Show. There’s also a GTS version of the shooting brake as well, the Taycan GTS Sport Turismo.

Besides adding the requisite dash of ‘just right’ sportiness that’s more than a Taycan 4S model, but below the Taycan Turbo model, it’s also the first Taycan to boast more than 500km of range on the WLTP testing standard.

In Porsche tradition, it’s already available for order in Singapore starting from the price of S$579,958 without COE. Pricing for the Sport Turismo has not yet been revealed. Deliveries are expected to start early next year.

UPDATE: Rumour has it that the Sport Turismo might not come to Singapore – bad news for shooting brake fans.

Both cars have an identical motor layout and performance in all aspects. Unlike the 911 range, where the GTS model has always been rear-wheel driven, the Taycan GTS is an all-wheel drive model – though there is a base rear-wheel drive model of the Taycan on sale here too. The dual-motor setup packs 517hp under normal circumstances, which tick up to 598hp on overboost mode. That slots the GTS right above the 4S model (530hp) and below the Turbo (680hp). 0-100km/h is done in 3.7-seconds, with a top speed of 250km/h.

The car’s battery has a gross capacity of 93.4kWh (83.7kWh net) and with the car’s quoted efficiency of 24.1 to 20.3kWh/100km, that spells for a range of 424km to 504km. Porsche says this is the first Taycan to breach the 500km mark in range, and it’s because of improvements to the ‘drive strategy’ (read: motor, aero, battery optimisation through software) which have also been rolled out to 2021 Taycans.

Visually, the cars have the now familiar GTS treatment: blacked out details including the lights, front apron, side mirror caps. Unlike the petrol GTS models, which usually have quad tailpipes, like the others of its model family, neither Taycan GTS model has tailpipes. For an example of a ‘traditional’ GTS, take a peek at the 911 GTS announced earlier this year.

The interior of the car sees the liberal application of Black Race-Tex (microfibre), though there isn’t a coloured tach-back like on traditional GTS models. But Porsche hasn’t skimped on the equipment: adaptive air suspension (PASM) is standard, as is the Porsche Chrono pack which allows for overboost and more drive modes, and slaps a nice chrono on the dash. All-wheel steering is still an option though, as is Porsche’s body-roll control system (PDCC).

The Sport Turismo, as the shooting brake, has better headroom (45mm increase) and a 446-litre boot, compared to 407-litres on the sedan.

A very Porsche-name option: Panoramic roof with Sunshine Control:

One eye-catching (optional) addition to the Taycan that debuts on the GTS is the Panoramic roof with Sunshine Control: It’s an electrochromic panoramic roof, which has nine separate segments each of which can be dimmed individually.
