Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo prototype seen on tests

The journalists have published pictures of an unmasked prototype of the electric Porsche Taycan station wagon. The novelty received a prefix in the name Cross Turismo.

This completely non-camouflaged prototype of the Taycan Cross Turismo electric station wagon was spotted in the parking lot of a shopping center in Southern California (USA). The car received a high ground clearance and very attractive rims. The aerodynamic, streamlined five-spoke wheel design is very unusual and completely different from all the wheels we have seen on other Taycans.

Otherwise, this is standard Cross Turismo equipment: slightly increased ground clearance, low-profile roof rails, plastic panels created to protect the body.

The journalists also managed to capture the interior of the novelty and it is not surprising that it is very similar to the usual Taycan. The black upholstery contrasts nicely with the matte wood finishes and polished highlights.

Clearly the long roof version of the Taycan will get more headroom in the back and a little more cargo space. The car will be more comfortable in terms of the amount of space available, without compromising on style or dynamics typical of Porsche cars.

The automaker did not disclose detailed powertrain specifications for the universal version of the Taycan. We expect the new product to be available in all-wheel drive form.

Buyers are likely to be offered a 4S version with a 522 hp electric motor, as well as a Turbo version with a 670 hp engine. The most powerful Turbo S with its 750 hp may also be available. The 2021 Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo will likely cost more than the Taycan sedan.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote about a race between McLaren Senna and an electric Porsche Taycan Turbo S. The famous blogger Shmee decided to arrange a race in a straight line between two very fast sports cars. He decided to see if the British McLaren Senna, equipped with a traditional gasoline engine, could withstand the more modern electric car from the German Porsche.
