Porsche Taycan GTS Looks Good and Has Performance to Match

The overwhelming success of the Porsche Taycan, a sleek four-door electric sports sedan, is nothing short of remarkable. In just two years, it has managed to surpass the legendary Porsche 911, an iconic vehicle that has been the cornerstone of the brand for years. Even when compared to the established EV giant, Tesla, the Taycan has proven to be a resounding triumph. During the first three quarters of 2021, Taycan sales surpassed those of the Model S and Model X combined.

To further reinforce its position as a leading electric sports car manufacturer, Porsche has recently unveiled the new-for-2023 Taycan GTS. The model is a superb driver-focused variant that strategically fills a price and performance void in the Taycan lineup.

Up until now, the upgrade from the dual-motor all-wheel-drive Taycan 4S to the Turbo has been colossal. The price differential is almost $42,000 after equipping the 4S with the 83.7-kWh Performance Battery Plus option that comes standard on the Turbo. Nevertheless, the big-battery 4S will still forfeit 108 horsepower and 147 pound-feet of torque to the Turbo’s remarkable 670 horsepower and 626 pound-feet of maximum output. As a result, the Taycan GTS occupies a large swath of white space, settling neatly in between the two in terms of pricing while delivering an impressive 590 horsepower and matching the Turbo’s 626 pound-feet of torque. While the range figures are not yet available, Porsche has hinted that the GTS could outperform the 227-mile range of the 2021 4S.

However, the most significant advantage of the Taycan GTS may be the fact that it lacks the word “Turbo” on the vehicle’s rear end. Thus, when chatting with people at your local Cars & Coffee event, there will be no needling about the legitimacy of your electric Porsche.
