    Its heart: electric. Its soul: Porsche.

    A battery that stores goosebumps.

    The Taycan carries a legacy that is reflected by performance. The latest drive technology ensures that its performance can be repeatedly reproduced: two permanent-magnet synchronous motors (PSMs) catapult the Taycan Turbo S with up to 560kW (761HP) overboost with Launch Control from 0–100km/h in 2.8 seconds.

    A cable with the power to fuel dreams.

    The Porsche soul stands for performance. In every respect. As demonstrated by the Taycan, even when charging: its 800-volt architecture produces charge power of up to 270kW. In five minutes, the vehicle can be charged to enable a range of up to 100km (WLTP) under optimum conditions¹ and is always ready for what its driver is thinking about the whole day: driving.

    ¹ Optimum conditions: CCS fast-charging pedestal with >270kW, >850V, battery temperature 30°C to 35°C and initial charge status 5%.

    A display that portrays emotions.

    The Porsche Advanced Cockpit in the Taycan is characterised by pioneering technologies and offers up to four displays. The fully digital curved display is the driver’s main focus. But what really distinguishes the Taycan is the feeling behind the wheel: the familiarity of a Porsche coupled with the irresistible beating of your heart.

    Models & technical data

    Lateral air intakes ahead of the front wheels – so-called aircurtains – also improve the aerodynamics, by guiding incoming air over the wheels like a curtain, thereby reducing turbulence.

    Four-point LED headlights

    Directly above these is the highlight of the front: four-point LED headlights with matrix beam that combine all the light functions in a single component and appear to be floating.

    Automatically extending door handles

    The silhouette is characterised by a dynamic, flat flyline. Flush, automatically extending door handles open the vehicle interior with its deep, sporty seating position.

    Panoramic fixed glass roof

    There are two roof options: the contoured variant made of lightweight aluminium with an indentation in the middle creates a shape that is known to us from motorsport. Alternatively, a panoramic fixed glass roof provides an open, airy feeling.

    Rear design

    The rear design features a seamless light strip made of glass, as well as the ‘Porsche’ logo in glass look. Above these are the Porsche Active Aerodynamics (PAA) in the form of a three-stage rear spoiler system.


    The ascending centre console underlines the deep, sporty position of the driver's seat. This takes the form of a 14 or optionally 18-way adjustable seat¹ with narrow headrests.

    ¹ Standard on the Taycan Turbo S.

    Multifunction sports steering wheel

    If the standard multifunction sports steering wheel is not sporty enough, you can maximise the motorsport feel with the optional multifunction GT sports steering wheel²: it features a mode switch, as well as a top centre marking.

    ² In conjunction with the Sport Chrono Package; standard on the Taycan Turbo S.

    Advanced Climate Control

    The innovative Advanced Climate Control air conditioning (dual or four-zone) may not be visible, but is certainly noticeable: slat-free air outlets enable precise airflow and distribution.

    Luggage compartment

    As well as the 81-litre luggage compartment at the front for smaller items, the rear boot also provides 366 litres of storage space that can be flexibly expanded, thanks to the individually folding rear seat backrests.


    Mechanical buttons have been almost entirely replaced by digital ones. Making the interior look extremely tidy. The same principle of tidiness also applies to the displays, of which there are up to four – intuitive, distraction-free and easy to use.

    16.8-inch curved display

    The arrangement is also driver-focused, as is typical of Porsche: the instrument cluster is the centre of attention, consisting of a 16.8-inch curved display and surrounded by control panels with Direct Touch Control for selecting lighting and chassis functions.

    Communication Management

    Your central control unit for audio, navigation and communication: redesigned Porsche Communication Management (PCM) including online navigation. The PCM display on the 10.9-inch central display on the dashboard can be individually configured, allowing direct access to the most important functions.

    8.4-inch centre console control panel

    This provides access to navigation, media, telephone, settings and Apple CarPlay via a menu bar which can be disabled. The luggage compartment and charging flaps can also be opened and closed from here. The charging display and battery charge status can also be viewed.

    The key to designing an outstanding drivetrain was the systematic continuation of the purpose-design approach: no compromises with the perfect interaction of drive components.

    • Permanent magnet synchronous machine
    • Porsche Recuperation Management (PRM)
    Explore Performance

    Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors

    Two Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors are installed in the Taycan Turbo and Taycan Turbo S – one on each axle – and the performance battery is integrated deep into the underbody. The effect: superior driving dynamics and all-wheel drive that can be optimally adjusted to the fluctuation between efficiency and dynamics in the various driving modes.

    Switching two-speed transmission

    The concept of the permanent magnet synchronous motor provides high power density, high continuous output and high efficiency in a compact design. A newly developed, automatically switching two-speed transmission on the rear axle ensures noticeably improved dynamics.


    The interaction of the drive components produces impressive performance figures, both technically and emotionally: with up to 560kW (761HP) overboost is activated with Launch Control, both machines accelerate the Taycan Turbo S from a standstill to 100km/h in 2.8 seconds. And this can be repeatedly reproduced: consecutive acceleration is possible, up to a top speed of 260km/h.

    Performance battery

    This is due to the performance battery, among other things, which is based on 800-volt technology instead of the usual 400 volts. The effect: improved charging and drive performance with smaller cable cross-sections, which has a positive impact on the overall weight.


    Porsche Recuperation Management (PRM) works innovatively and can regenerate up to 90% of braking energy. This means, during active braking, recuperation is enabled first and the mechanical brake is only engaged when stronger braking is required – intelligently controlled by a braking system that is capable of blending. With an outstanding recuperation output of up to 265kW, energy can be fed back into the battery in the Taycan. Or to be more precise: during sporty, everyday driving, for example, you will achieve up to a third of your range exclusively from recuperation. With recuperation braking from 200km/h to 0, electrical energy can be recovered for a range of up to 4km.


    Adaptive air suspension

    Adaptive air suspension ensures a balance between comfort and performance, optimum aerodynamics and, last but not least, an improved drag coefficient: increased range with maximum performance.

    Rear-axle steering

    Rear-axle steering steers the rear wheels in the same or the opposite direction to the front wheels, depending on the speed. This has the virtual effect of shortening or extending the wheelbase – depending on the situation. For increased stability at high speed, improved lateral acceleration on country roads and a reduced turning circle in everyday situations.

    Dynamic Chassis Control Sport

    The roll stabilisation of Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport (PDCC Sport) also ensures sporty dynamics. This system, which is also used in other model ranges, almost entirely offsets lateral body inclination, thereby allowing the wheels to hold the road better.

    Torque Vectoring Plus

    Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) enhances driving dynamics and stability. Depending on the steering angle and driving speed, accelerator pedal position, yaw rate and speed, it improves the steering behaviour and accuracy by precisely and agilely applying brake pressure to the left or right rear wheel.

    Assistance systems

    Active Lane Keeping & Traffic Jam Assist

    Active Lane Keeping, which uses longitudinal and lateral control to help keep the Taycan in lane and regulate the distance from vehicles in front, is also an integral part of this system – as is Traffic Jam Assist, which keeps the vehicle in the middle of the lane on congested roads, for greater comfort on longer journeys.

    Lane Change Assist

    Lane Change Assist indicated whether a vehicle is in your blind spot as you move to change lanes – extremely practical when driving on the motorway.

    Surround View

    Surround View ensures optimum care when parking and manoeuvring using one hand. Making every metre in the Taycan a driving experience – regardless of the speed.

    Porsche - Charging
    In terms of charging time and range, the Taycan also demonstrates what makes a genuine Porsche. Because we believe that a sports car should be ready to set off at all times, we do our utmost to facilitate simple charging that is integrated into everyday life.

    Our charging concept starts with the vehicle: the Performance Battery Plus with the latest lithium-ion technology is based on 800-volt architecture and, therefore, on a similar system to our endurance race car, the 919 Hybrid. Higher voltage means not only perceptibly more power and less weight, thanks to reduced cable size, but above all shorter charging times.

    Range indicator

    With the range indicator, you can determine the estimated range for your journey. The calculation is based on your personal driving profile, your travelling conditions and the respective model equipment. Please select the options relevant for you. Range indicator The range indicator only gives estimated values, as not all factors that can influence the range of the vehicle are considered (e.g. driving style, age and condition of the battery, etc.). Therefore, the actual range achieved may be greater or less than the determined value.

    Estimated range:

    303 km

    Your driving profile Your driving profile Using the driving profile, you can individually depict your everyday life and specify whether you are travelling in city traffic, on country roads or on the motorway. The different driving profiles have an impact on the estimated range.

    Country road

    Travelling conditions Travelling conditions With the outside temperature regulator, you can test how the outside temperature impacts the range. The air conditioning and heating greatly influence the energy consumption of your Taycan. When calculating the range influences, it is assumed that you have set the interior temperature to 22°C and that the vehicle is preconditioned at the start of the journey. Alternatively, the air conditioning can be set to 'ECO PLUS' or completely switched off.

    Charging at home and on the road

    Because we not only think about the product, but also about the environment in which it is used, Porsche is involved in the development of a nationwide charging infrastructure: both with its own solutions and together with partners – along motorways, for example.

    Mobile Charger

    Use the Mobile Charger Plus¹, connected to your mains supply, as standard to charge the vehicle. Or optionally charge using the intelligent Mobile Charger Connect with touchscreen. You can also conveniently attach the Mobile Charger Connect to your garage wall in the optionally available charging dock.

    ¹ Available from mid-2020 at the earliest.

    Home Energy Manager

    To enable you to quickly and easily charge your Taycan at home, we provide the Home Energy Manager: an intelligent control unit, installed in the power distribution box, which constantly communicates with your charger. It makes sure that your household electric appliances are supplied with sufficient energy while your car is being charged in the garage.

    Porsche Turbo Charging

    Porsche Turbo Charging at selected Porsche Centres further expands the Porsche charging network. Here, you can charge your vehicle to achieve a range of up to 100km in five minutes (WLTP) under optimum conditions². Thanks to the on-board DC-charger with 150 kW, you can also conveniently use public 400-volt charging stations.

    ² Optimum conditions: CCS fast-charging pedestal with >270kW, >850V, battery temperature 30°C to 35°C and initial charge status 5%.
