Porsche Taycan GTS
The new Taycan GTS perfectly slots between the entry-level Taycan 4S and the higher Turbo variants. Compared to the 79.2kWh battery on the Taycan 4S, the Taycan GTS uses a larger 93.4kWh battery pack. This is similar to the higher Turbo variants. The Taycan GTS produces 590 HP of power. With that power, the car can go from 0 to 100 kmph in 3.7sec. The top speed is limited to 250 kmph. As per Porsche, Taycan is capable of a claimed 504km (WLTP cycle) on a single charge. The Taycan GTS also features an overboost function that brings output to 590 HP in short bursts.
The Taycan includes DC fast-charging capability. This allows the GTS to charge from 5 per cent to 80 per cent in just 23 minutes. With 50-kW DC charging, it can charge 5 per cent to 80 per cent in an acceptable 90 minutes. Noteworthy to mention, using 9.6-kW-level charging, it will take 10.5 hours to go from 5 per cent up to 100 per cent charge.
As with Porsche’s other GTS models, this Taycan also gets marked out by black exterior trim elements. It also gets Race-Tex interior upholstery, along with a recalibrated adaptive air suspension for a distinctive dynamic character. Customers will get an optional rear-wheel steering system and a panoramic sunroof with ‘Variable Light Control’. This feature changes the glass from clear to opaque just at the press of a button.
