Porsche adds Taycan Sport Turismo models, including 750-hp Turbo S

  • Porsche unveiled the Taycan GTS Sport Turismo in November and has now added base, 4S, Turbo and Turbo S models for the low-slung wagon.
  • A Porsche spokesperson confirmed Car and driver that the US market will only receive the Sport Turismo in GTS form.
  • Porsche claims the Turbo S can hit 62mph in 2.8 seconds, while the 4S has the longest range in the range at 309 miles on the European WLTP test cycle.

    At the 2021 Los Angeles Auto Show, Porsche unveiled a new body style for the electric Taycan called the Sport Turismo, essentially a Cross Turismo wagon without the “all-terrain” plastic cladding. At the time, Porsche only presented a Taycan Sport Turismo in GTS trim, but the German automaker has now unveiled four other versions of the Sport Turismo: base, 4S, Turbo and a top-tier Turbo S. Unfortunately, these new variants will not reach our shores.

    A Porsche spokesperson said Car and driver that “the Taycan Sport Turismo will continue to be offered only as a GTS in the United States”, citing its “optimal blend of performance and utility”. Still, we wish Porsche would bring us more of the gorgeous electric wagons, especially the 670hp All-Wheel Drive Turbo and 750hp Turbo S variants. The base model, which sends 375 hp to the rear wheels with the optional Performance Battery Plus, would also be welcome in the US.

    Porsche claims the Taycan Turbo S Sport Turismo will hit 62 mph in 2.8 seconds, slightly behind the 2.4-second 0-60 mph run we recorded in our testing of a standard Turbo S. The 4S model, meanwhile, achieves the best range in the range, covering 309 miles on a charge based on the European WLTP test cycle. The full Sport Turismo lineup will arrive in March for European customers, but we’ll have to settle for the 590-hp GTS Sport Turismo when it goes on sale in the US in the first half of this year.
