What is a Sport Turismo body style? The Sport Turismo body style is a unique configuration of the Porsche Taycan that is designed to be a crossover between sports cars and SUVs. This new style is stylish, unique, and offers wider cargo areas, which adds versatility to the Porsche lineup.
The Taycan GTS Sedan and GTS Sport Turismo are both equipped with AC Permanent Synchronous Motors with a 2-speed transmission on the rear axle. When combined with the included Porsche Traction Management (PTM) and Porsche Recuperation Management (PRM), this model makes for a smooth ride with increased acceleration.
Compared to the standard Taycan model, both the Taycan GTS Sport Turismo and Taycan GTS Sedan models offer increased motor and transmission performance. Both offer 590 hp/ 440 kW and can go from 0-60 in 3.5 seconds, while the standard Taycan offers just 402 hp/ 300 kW and goes from 0-60 in 5.1 seconds. Additionally, both models offer higher top speeds of 155 mph compared to the standard model's 143 mph.
The Taycan line of Porsche models consists of electric vehicles that are able to be charged at home and on the road. While the standard 2022 Taycan model offers 200 miles per charge, the Sport Turismo styles offer extended battery performance.
