Porsche engineers test Taycan Cross Turismo electric station wagonOctober 27, 2019
A prototype of the all-electric Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo was spotted on the German Nurburgring race track. We will see the serial version of the new product next year. There are no details about the technical “stuffing” of the station wagon.
Porsche Taycan is a very important model for the German brand. In addition to being the first fully electric model in the history of the automaker, the novelty is also a high-performance sports electric car, which has already set a new record for the German Nürburgring track among electric cars. I note that the American company Tesla seems to have felt the threat of being overthrown from the podium of the fastest electric car, as can be seen from the recent series of Model S sedans at the Nurburgring.
But the guys from Porsche apparently are not going to limit themselves to the presentation of the Taycan electric sedan. The Stuttgart automaker plans to introduce other versions of its new products. In particular, the brand is preparing Taycan Cross Turismo – the same model, only in the station wagon. A prototype of the latter was seen on the racetrack.
As you can see in the video at the top of this page, the Taycan Cross Turismo prototype drives the Nurburgring very quickly, which makes us think about what’s under its hood.
Taycan Cross Turismo received a typical disguise with which the German brand engineers cover the test samples of their new models – black ribbons are on the body, on the headlights. Of course, comically installed fake tailpipes from the Porsche exhaust system are also present, but the lack of exhaust sounds and the yellow round sticker on the rear windshield speak for themselves.
Currently, information about the Taycan Cross Turismo station wagon is rather scarce, except that we will see the serial version of the new product next year.
