And then there are also arguments that are, so to speak, “off the road”. For example, the external impact on the customer. After all, nowadays many things can only be sold with a sustainable coating.
Porsche Taycan Turbo S to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds
According to the data sheet, that should be up to 458 kilometers thanks to the new consumption management. OK, it’s winter. It’s minus degrees outside. We give him credit for that. And the current range is always based on the driving behavior of the previous pilot. This also explains the fact that after almost a hundred kilometers of testing, a range of around 220 kilometers is still displayed.
In everyday life no difference
On the other hand, we didn’t have a “normal” turbo under our butts, but the difference in performance can only really be experienced on the data sheet and during the launch sprint anyway. In everyday life, the Taycan Turbo and Turbo S – as with the flagship Porsche 911 – do not take much. The “S” on the boot lid doesn’t do you any good, it just shows you could afford it.
After all, the Taycan is not (only) about sheer performance. The steering is Porsche-like direct, the chassis is bindingly stiff with little roll and mannered comfort, and the practicality increases again as a Sport Turismo.
What more do you want? Above all, we miss the robust combustion engine sound. And range and charging infrastructure are still mutually dependent.
The Sport Turismo combines the elegance of the sedan with the practicality of the Cross Turismo. The price advantage of 476 euros compared to the planked version is almost amusing in this price segment.
