Porsche Taycan: there will also be the Sport Tourism version
The spy photos confirm the station wagon version of the Taycan. It should be ready in 2021.
Porsche is ready to open the era of electric with the model Porsche Taycan, starting production in 2019 and expected sales in 2020. It’s a start, yet Porsche is already well under way for what should be the second step of its activity “zero emissions”: the scoop hunters have “captured” with the target a prototype of Taycan with the body modified according to the criteria of Shooting Brake, close relatives of the wagon. This is not surprising, because at the Geneva Motor Show in 2018, Porsche had unveiled the Mission E Cross Turismo concept car, which anticipated the new model of which Carscoops spy photos now arrive.
From a mechanical point of view, the Porsche Taycan E Sport Turismo (or what it will be called at the time of launch) should have the Taycan 4-door sedan setting, or slightly different, probably only adapted to the specific needs of the cars voted more to practicality that not to the performances. On the other hand the margins for adaptation are all there: the Porsche Taycan sedan (but coupé profile) has two electric motors that together provide a power of 600 hp. As an authentic sport, as befits a Porsche, are the performance: acceleration from 0-100 km / h in less than 3.5 seconds. Regarding the autonomy, we are talking about a distance of about 500 km without needing to recharge the 800 Volt batteries. That said, the rumors (or the assumptions of the well-informed) make us imagine that there will be more versions of power, as if to want to meet different types of customers. The one that should be standard is instead the four-wheel drive.
