    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 (750 HP) Overboost Power with Launch Control from 0–60 mph in 2.6 seconds. With a standing start of 1.2g, it accelerates faster than the force of gravity for the first few yards – making it faster than a skydiver in free fall.

    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 accepts charge power of up to 270kW.

    A display that portrays emotions.

    The Porsche Advanced Cockpit in the Taycan is characterized 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.

    Like all lithium-ion batteries, the lithium-ion battery in the Porsche Taycan is subject to physical and chemical aging, as well as wear and tear. Therefore, the Taycan battery will experience a reduction in the amount of electricity or charge it can hold over time, resulting in a reduction in the vehicle’s range and an increase in charging times. This is normal and expected.

    Although Porsche expects the majority of vehicles to retain 70% of the battery’s original capacity through the first 8 years or 100,000 miles (whichever occurs first) of normal use, the rate of reduction varies, and will depend upon your individual usage and operating environment. The rate of capacity loss will tend to be greater in the early part of the battery’s life, but the rate of loss should decrease over time. For 8 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first, Porsche provides High-Voltage Battery Coverage under its New Car Limited Warranty if a capacity measurement performed at a Porsche authorized dealer shows that net battery capacity is less than the expected percentage at the times specified in the New Car Limited Warranty. Various factors, including exposure to hot or cold weather conditions, can affect the rate of battery capacity loss and charging time. See the Porsche Taycan New Car Limited Warranty and your authorized Porsche Taycan dealer for details. Please see the Porsche Taycan Owner’s Manual for additional information.

    Air Curtains

    Vertical air intakes ahead of the front wheels – so called Air Curtains – also improve the aerodynamics, by guiding incoming air over the wheels like a curtain, reducing turbulence.

    Four-point LED headlights

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

    Automatically extending door handles

    The silhouette is characterized 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 aluminum 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, as well as the ‘Porsche’ logo in glass look. Above this is the adaptive three stage rear spoiler, a fundamental component of Porsche Active Aerodynamics (PAA).


    The ascending center 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 integrated headrests. Recesses in the design of the battery integrated into the underbody also ensure an adequate level of comfort for rear passengers.

    ¹ Standard on the Taycan Turbo S.

    Multifunction sport steering wheel

    If the standard multifunction sport steering wheel is not sporty enough, you can maximize the motorsport feel with the optional multifunction GT sport steering wheel²: it features a mode switch, as well as a top center 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 optional four-zone) may not be visible, but is certainly noticeable: slat-free vents enable precise airflow and distribution.

    Luggage compartment

    The front trunk is great for smaller items like briefcases and bookbags. While the rear trunk offers 12.9 cu.ft. of storage space that can be flexibly expanded, thanks to the individually folding rear seat backrests.


    Physical 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 center 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 center console control panel

    Another digital element is located in the center console, namely the 8.4-inch center console control panel. This provides access to navigation, media, telephone, settings and Apple CarPlay® via a menu bar which can be disabled. The trunks and charging port doors 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.
    • 800-volt Performance Battery
    • 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 93.4 kWh performance battery plus 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.

    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 (750 HP) overboost is activated with Launch Control, both machines accelerate the Taycan Turbo S from a standstill to 60 mph in 2.6 seconds. And this can be repeatedly reproduced: consecutive acceleration is possible, up to a top track speed of 161 mph.

    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 124 mph to 0, electrical energy can be recovered for a range of up to 2.5 miles.


    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.

    Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport

    The roll stabilization 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. It also reduces lateral instability on uneven ground.

    Porsche 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

    Porsche InnoDrive including adaptive cruise control

    As part of intelligent Porsche InnoDrive including adaptive cruise control, the system increases the prediction horizon to up to 1.8 miles. With the aid of navigation data and information supplied by the radar and video sensors, it determines speed limits and topographical road features long before you reach them and modifies the speed and gearshift strategy to suit the selected driving mode.

    Active Lane Keep & Traffic Jam Assist

    Active Lane Keep, 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 helps keep the vehicle in the middle of the lane on congested roads, for greater comfort on longer journeys.

    Lane Change Assist & Night Vision Assist

    Lane Change Assist indicates whether a vehicle is in your blind spot as you move to change lanes – extremely practical when driving on the motorway. And at night, Night Vision Assist uses an infrared camera to provide support – pedestrians and wildlife are displayed as thermal images and also highlighted in color.

    Surround View

    Surround View ensures optimum care when parking and maneuvering using one hand. Making every inch in the Taycan a driving experience.
