The Porsche Taycan receives its GTS version

As is the case with all GTS versions that Porsche On the market, the Taycan GTS is between the entry-level 4S versions and the very high performance Turbo and Turbo S. It is available both on the regular Taycan and on the Cross Turismo. Porsche, however, changes its name to the Taycan GTS Sport Turismo.

To arrive at a GTS, Porsche installs the battery of a Turbo (optional in the 4S) with a capacity of 93.4 kilowatt hours, unlike 79.2 in a 4S. Like its sisters, it offers 4-wheel drive thanks to 2 electric motors (one on each train), including a 2-speed mechanical transmission attached to the rear axle.

Between a 4S and a Turbo

The total combined power is therefore displayed at 590 horsepower, or 28 horsepower more than a Taycan 4S powered by the same battery, but still 80 horsepower less than a Turbo. According to Porsche, all this cavalry would allow the Taycan GTS to complete the sprint from 0 to 96 km / hour in just 3.5 seconds, 0.4 seconds faster than a Taycan 4S.
