- porsche unveiled the taycan gts sport turismo back in november and has now added base, 4s, turbo, and turbo s models for the low-slung wagon.
- a spokesperson for porsche confirmed to car and driver that the u.s. market will only receive the sport turismo in gts guise.
- porsche says the turbo s can hit 62 mph in 2.8 seconds, while the 4s has the longest range in the lineup at 309 miles on the european wltp testing cycle.
at the 2021 los angeles auto show, porsche took the wraps off a new bodystyle for the electric taycan called the sport turismo, essentially a cross turismo wagon without the “off-road” plastic cladding. at the time porsche only showed a taycan sport turismo in gts trim, but now the german automaker has unveiled four more versions of the sport turismo: base, 4s, turbo, and a top-dog turbo s. sadly, these new variants will not reach our shores.
a porsche spokesperson told car and driver that “the taycan sport turismo will continue to be offered solely as a gts in the united states,” citing its “optimal blend of performance and utility.” still, we wish porsche would bring us more gorgeous electric wagons, especially the all-wheel-drive 670-hp turbo and 750-hp turbo s variants. the base model, which sends 375 hp to the rear wheels with the optional performance battery plus, would also be welcome stateside.
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 of the lineup, traveling 309 miles on a charge based on the european wltp testing cycle. the full sport turismo lineup will arrive in march for european customers, but we will have to make do with the 590-hp gts sport turismo when it goes on sale in the u.s. in the first half of this year.
