The performance-oriented all-electric station wagon has arrived and we like what we see. The Taycan Turbo Cross Turismo gets the same dual-motor all-wheel-drive as the Taycan sedan featuring a Gravel drive mode, standard air suspension, and minor ride-height increases. With a permanent-magnet motor at each axle, the rear drives a two-speed automatic and the front a single-speed gearbox. Power is a kind of nuts 616 hp and 626 lb-ft, which we think is more that enough for the kids daily trip to school. Feels much the same as the sedan version but looks way cooler.
It is expensive, it is fast and it is exceptional. The Porsche Taycan Turbo shows us that Porsche's electric future is going to be great for drivers. The Taycan Turbo feels even relentlessly rapid at any speed and the best part is that it really feels like a Porsche from behind the wheel. The Turbo has the same 93.4kWh battery stack as the Turbo S, and the same 614bhp power output. But when you’re going for it in Performance mode, the Turbo’s overboost power and torque are reduced compared with the Turbo S. It means the Turbo is four-tenths slower to 60 mph from standstill.
