The new Taycan Gran Turismo Sport: the sporty sweet spot of the Taycan range
GTS stands for Gran Turismo Sport.
Since the Porsche 904 Carrera GTS of 1963, these three letters have held special significance for Porsche fans.
Now, there is a derivative featuring this legendary combination of letters in every Porsche model series. Porsche will be presenting a new version of its electric sports car – one that bears the GTS acronym – at the LA Auto Show (19-28 November 2021).
“The Taycan model range has grown steadily since its world premiere in 2019. Up to five variant options offer something for everyone,” said Kevin Giek, Vice President Model Line Taycan.
“I am particularly pleased that we now also have a Taycan with the legendary GTS moniker. It is positioned above the Taycan 4S and below the Taycan Turbo derivatives, so it represents a real sweet spot in the range.”
The Taycan GTS starts from $237,000^ and is expected to arrive in Australia in second quarter of 2022.
The Taycan GTS is the sporty all-rounder of the model range. It has an impressive 440 kW / 598 PS* (horsepower) of overboost power available when using Launch Control. The Taycan GTS accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds. The maximum speed of the model is 250 km/h.
The adaptive air suspension, including Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), is specifically adapted to the GTS, to the benefit of its lateral dynamics. The set-up of the optional rear-axle steering is now also even sportier. The richer sound pattern of the modified Porsche Electric Sport Sound underscores the character of the new GTS model.
The exterior and interior are distinctive. There are numerous Black or Dark details on the exterior, such as the front apron, the bases of the exterior mirrors and the side window trims – as is traditional on a GTS. Numerous Black Race-Tex features in the interior underscore the elegant, dynamic ambience, as does the standard brushed
aluminium interior package with black anodised finish.
