The Porsche Taycan Turbo Cross Turismo cannot be pigeonholed. It was as if the designers put the best of multiple body styles in a magic blender and this came out: a low above the ground, spacious 5-door shooting-brake with off-road characteristics. Are you still following us? Equipped with a Volcano Gray metallic paint, the chic character comes to the fore and the contrast with the unpainted fender flares, side skirts and bumper spoilers is kept fairly subtle. The same applies to the high-gloss black roof + ditto rear spoiler, the black aluminum roof rails and dark-tinted Matrix LED headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus). The panoramic roof is also dark-tinted. Less subtle are the Vesuvius Gray inlays from the Offroad Design Package. They emphasize, among other things, the enormous diffuser and front splitter. This is exactly what makes it a Porsche! The 21-inch Cross Turismo Design wheels look amazing and symbolize the amount of grip…
Those who use Porsche Entry & Drive can take a seat in the adaptive sports seats in one movement and still keep the key in their pocket. Seat heating + ventilation make sitting very comfortable. Driver and passengers are surrounded by lime beige leather upholstery combined with black parts. The black headliner is of the Race-Tax type: a kind of Alcantara. Once you hold the heated GT Sports steering wheel, you will be extra triggered to accelerate thanks to a Sport Chrono Pack including the well-known stopwatch on the dashboard. That is also the only analog clock on board the Taycan Turbo Cross Turismo, because the electric sports car embraces the digital age with an impressive instrument panel and ditto infotainment system. The Turbo lettering in the headrests is nice and “old school”.
Options & extras
Forgive us for the succinct listing of the remaining options, but we simply don’t have any more characters. And it’s quite a laundry list: rear-axle steering, electric charging cover, Matrix LED headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus, Park Assist + Surround View, Advanced Climate Control (4-zone), Head-up Display, Porsche Innodrive + Adaptive Cruise Assist, Porsche Intelligent Range Manager, adaptive air suspension + Porsche Active Suspension Management, power steering plus, Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus and Performance Battery Plus. All sounds pretty technical? Don’t worry, there is also plenty of room for atmosphere in the Taycan Turbo Crosso Turismo: the Light Design package makes the Porsche cockpit a more than pleasant workplace. And the combination of Bose Surround Sound + Apple CarPlay ensures that your favorite tune comes in just that little bit better than usual. Unless Porsche Electric Sport Sound is preferred of course…
Technology & performance
Electric or not, 680 hp is something that should definitely be heard. If only to hear the Porsche Taycan Turbo arrive on time at a 0-100 km/h sprint in 3.3 seconds… The top speed is neatly regulated at 250 km/h, but everyone knows that the 5-door supercar capable of more with off-road traits. With a battery capacity of 93.7 kWh and a fast charging capacity of 270 kW, the Turbo version does not just have any battery power. This Porsche is a real powerhouse on several fronts! Four-wheel drive means that the Taycan topper can use his superpowers excellently. So for the petrolhead who still wants to switch to electric: this is the alternative.
