The full Sport Turismo lineup complements the existing GTS and Cross Turismo wagons, but these additional trims won’t be sold in the U.S.
- Porsche unveiled the Taycan GTS Sport Turismo back in November and has now added base, 4S, Turbo, and Turbo S models for the low-slung wagon.
- A spokesperson for Porsche confirmed that the U.S. market will only receive the Sport Turismo in GTS guise.
- Porsche says the Turbo S can hit 62 mph in 2.8 seconds, while the 4S has the longest range in the lineup at 309 miles on the European WLTP testing cycle.
Porsche unveiled a new bodystyle for the electric Taycan called the Sport Turismo at the 2021 Los Angeles Auto Show, which is simply a Cross Turismo waggon sans the “off-road” plastic coating. Porsche only displayed a GTS-spec Taycan Sport Turismo at the time, but the German carmaker has now revealed four further Sport Turismo models: base, 4S, Turbo, and Turbo S. Unfortunately, these new variations will not be available in the United States.
“The Taycan Sport Turismo will continue to be available primarily as a GTS in the United States,” a Porsche spokeswoman told Car and Driver, highlighting its “optimal balance of performance and usability.” Still, we’d want to see more beautiful electric waggons from Porsche, particularly the all-wheel-drive 670-hp Turbo and 750-hp Turbo S models. The base model, which delivers 375 horsepower to the rear wheels with the Performance Battery Plus option, would also be welcomed in the United States.
The Taycan Turbo S Sport Turismo, according to Porsche, will reach 62 mph in 2.8 seconds, which is significantly slower than the 2.4-second 0-60 mph time we achieved in our testing of a normal Turbo S. Meanwhile, the 4S model has the best range of the series, covering 309 miles on a single charge according to the European WLTP testing cycle. For European consumers, the entire Sport Turismo series will arrive in March, but we’ll have to make do with the 590-hp GTS Sport Turismo when it goes on sale in the first part of this year in the United States
