Porsche Taycan Sport Turismo electric station wagonJanuary 27, 2020
Porsche is moving according to its previously planned plan – a team of delirious engineers is testing prototypes of the electric Taycan Sport Turismo station wagon. This is what the published “spy” photos say. It is expected that the production version of the electric car will debut at the end of this year.
At this final stage of the test, Porsche probably assesses the car’s behavior in winter conditions and is especially focused on the data received from the electric power plant and battery when it is cold outside.
Thanks to the snowy weather, the body of the prototype seen, in addition to camouflage film, was also closed from prying eyes by a layer of snow.
Although this has not been officially confirmed at the moment, it is believed that under the hood of the Taycan Sport Turismo all the same electric motors that are offered for the usual Taycan sedan will be located. Moreover, they will not receive any changes in the specifications. This means that the 4S, Turbo and Turbo S models will be available with power from 523 to 751 hp and torque from 650 to 1050 Nm. These numbers are achievable when using the overload function with activated launch control mode.
At the end of this year, the German brand also plans to introduce the Taycan Cross Turismo – an off-road version of its electric car, which will have a similar body shape, but the “top” will receive more durable exterior elements and a higher suspension. Both versions of the station wagon should go on sale as new products in the 2021 model year no later than the beginning of next year.
Not so long ago, we wrote that Porsche published a teaser for a new generation of powerful 911 GT3. In its promotional video, which is dedicated to the 54th U.S. Football Super Cup, the German brand Porsche caught a glimpse of the new generation 911 sports coupe in the GT3 track version.
