Porsche Just Expanded the Taycan Lineup with the new Taycan GTS and Sport Turismo

Porsche Just Expanded the Taycan Lineup with the new Taycan GTS and Sport Turismo

The Taycan lineup is growing so fast that it could almost be its own sub-brand

The Taycan has been Porsche’s best-selling non-SUV so far in 2021, so it was no surprise when Porsche ushered in some pretty decent improvements for the 2020 model year, nor was it a surprise when the brand launched the off-road focused Taycan Cross Turismo. It’s pretty obvious that Porsche is dead set on expanding the Taycan into what could almost be its own standalone brand, with rumors indicating that we could even see a Taycan Coupe, Turismo, or road-focused Sport Turismo wagon. Well, as it turns out, Porsche showed up to the L.A. Auto Show with not one but two new Taycans – the aforementioned Taycan Sport Turismo and the new Taycan GTS. It seems Christmas has come a little early this year, folks.

Porsche is Developing a 911 Hybrid, and This Video is Proof

Porsche is Developing a 911 Hybrid, and This Video is Proof

This Porsche 911 Hybrid was caught running on the Nürburgring and may be called the 911 Turbo E-Hybrid

For years now, we’ve been told to patiently wait for an electrified Porsche 911. Back in 2018, Porsche’s 911 Product Line Director, August Achleitner said that an electrified 911 in any form definitely won’t come soon, with the plan being 2022 at the very earliest. Later on, we found out that Porsche was struggling to electrify the 911 without ruining its iconic nature, and finally, back in 2020 Frank-Steggen Walliser, the man in charge of Porsche’s sports car line, said the 911 would be the last Porsche to go electric. Things clearly haven’t been looking up for an electrified 911 – hybrid or full-on EV. All of that is about to change, though, and the video we have for you today is the proof – it’s a hybrid 911 kicking ass around the Nürburgring.

The Porsche 696 Beutler is a Swiss-Built Porsche Everyone Forgot About

The Volkswagen-Porsche 696 Beutler is Switzerland’s idea of a rear-engine Porsche from the 1950s

Throughout Porsche’s history, the 911 will remain its most definitive model. However, Porsche had other great cars and some of them, for one reason or another, remained in obscurity. This is exactly the case with the 1957 Porsche 696 Beutler, which wasn’t even built in Germany, in the first place. This is what we know about it.

The Gas-Powered Macan Won't Survive Beyond Its 10th Birthday

The Gas-Powered Macan Won’t Survive Beyond Its 10th Birthday

As Euro 7 emissions regulations creep closer, Porsche considers a short-lived dual-Macan strategy

We’ve come a long way from the original idea that the 2021 Porsche Macan would only be offered with an all-electric powertrain. That was the story in 2019, which quickly turned into word that the next-gen Macan would be all-electric but would be sold alongside the current Macan– something we called “Porsche’s dual-Macan strategy.” Now, it seems there’s even more to the story, and you might not like what you’re about to read.

The 2022 Taycan Has Been Improved In Ways That You Can't Imagine

The 2022 Taycan Has Been Improved In Ways That You Can’t Imagine

Rubystone Red pays tribute to the classic 964-generation 911 models

Updating cars on a year-to-year basis is becoming a new trend, and the Taycan is the latest model to jump on that bandwagon. For 2022, Porsche has improved the Taycan dramatically, with all updates geared toward making day-to-day use easier. It all starts with Normal and Range modes. When these modes are engaged, the front motor is almost completely decoupled and de-energized. And an new computer algorithm allows both motors to disengage when the car is coasting or at a standstill, something that also helps increase usable range.

Beyond this, Porsche has updated the Taycan’s thermal management system with the goal of optimizing the drivetrain. The battery can now be heated to a slightly higher temperature, which allows for fast charting earlier and at a higher charge level – something that reduces the amount of time required to charge. Even better, the excess heat from electrical components is now used to a greater extent to regulate the battery’s temperature.

Alongside these new upgrades, Porsche is now offering the Taycan with Remote Park Assist that will allow you to park it with your smartphone and Android Auto has finally been integrated into the sixth-generation PCM infotainment system. The Taycan can also be ordered through the paint-to-sample and paint-to-sample plus programs, the first one of which includes up to 65 available colors, like the cool red you see here.

Lars Kern, Porsche’s Chief Test Driver took the Cayenne Coupé around the Nürburgring in a record-breaking 7:38.9 minutes

There have been rumors for a while now about Porsche working on a new performance-oriented variant of its Cayenne Coupé. As always, the sense and nonsense of such a vehicle can be argued at length, but the fact that the folks at Zuffenhausen know a thing or two about how to make an SUV fast is no secret, and now we have even more proof.
