Currently reading: New Porsche Taycan Sport Turismo on sale from £73,560
Prices for more road-focused version of Cross Turismo climb to £140,080 for the 751bhp Turbo S

The Porsche Taycan line-up of all-electric luxury performance models has been expanded with the introduction of the new Sport Turismo, which combines the estate-style body of the Cross Turismo with the lower ride height of the saloon. 

Now available to order, priced from £73,560 and available in the same five trims as the Taycan saloon, it is aimed at customers who want the “everyday practicality” of the Cross Turismo but don’t want to “miss out on the on-road performance” of the saloon.

The range kicks off with the rear-driven Taycan, climbing to £84,830 for the 4S, £104,990 for the GTS, £117,670 for the Turbo and topping out at £140,080 for the 751bhp Turbo S. 

The dynamically focused GTS – described as the new "sporty sweet spot" of the Taycan range – will launch first, at the end of February, before the other models are added to the range in mid-March. 

The Sport Turismo drops the 4x4-inspired off-road cladding of the higher-riding variant but keeps its 1200- litre boot and 45mm of extra head room over the saloon. 

The GTS trim is itself a new addition to the Taycan range, and can be specified on the saloon model from £104,190. With up to 590bhp in Launch Control mode, the GTS dispatches 0-62mph in 3.7sec, tops out at 155mph and is capable of a claimed 312 miles between charges. As with Porsche’s other GTS models, it is marked out by black exterior trim elements and Race-Tex interior upholstery, while a unique tune for the adaptive air suspension promises a distinctive dynamic character.

In the absence of an exhaust system to upgrade, the Taycan GTS gets its own version of Porsche’s Electric Sport Sound, which accompanies acceleration.

Back to top

Porsche product boss Kevin Giek introduced the new variants: "The Taycan model range has grown steadily since its world premiere in 2019. Three body variants with up to five engine options offer something for everyone. 

“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.”

Porsche has not given any official hints as to how the Taycan range could be further expanded. The 911, 718 Cayman and Cayenne are each available in full-bore GT trim, but the Panamera – the Taycan's closest combustion-engined relation – tops out with the Turbo S.

Any chance Autocar could ignore Porsche's marketing guff that the Sport Turismo and Cross Turismo are such completely different vehicles. About 15mm on the ride height and that's it other than marketing nonsense.

This looks really smart - and I reckon it will out-sell the saloon. The start price of £73,500 is almost realistic (although from experience I know that a base Porsche is as rare as rocking horse poo).

Jeremy so right! Here in the USA any dealer ordered car is specced up something naughty. Only way to get a stripper is to order it in advance. Fact is though despite all the complaining you see online on forums such as this, very few actual buyers order strippers. Those of us that buy these cars generally accept the options costs and buy what we want. Just check out Rennlist for some insight. I just ordered a base 911 with very few options, but the GT3 Touring, that will be more 'personal'.

A family member will be collecting their brand new Porsche Taycan 4S Cross Turismo in January 2022 although they placed their order in June/July 2021. They probably would have bought this GTS instead however it wasn't out. I have a feeling that they will enjoy their 4S just as much.

567 I think your right. I have had two Taycan loaners, a turbo and a 4S. Realistically around town in an urban setting where I live, the 4S is plenty quick, I didn't get to use the turbo's extra shove. If I was buying one I would actually buy the base Taycan.
