Under the hood, the Taycan Turbo GT is a technological marvel, boasting 1093bhp, a silicon carbide inverter, and a 105kWh battery that promises an impressive 345 miles of range when driven conservatively. Porsche’s commitment to the electric future is evident, and the Taycan Turbo GT serves as a testament to the brand’s prowess in electrification engineering.

The Taycan Turbo GT, priced at £186,300, sets a new standard as the most powerful series-production Porsche. Making headlines, it has set record lap times at Laguna Seca and the Nürburgring, outperforming other road-approved electric cars.

Model Line Vice President, Kevin Giek, said:

“The two records in Laguna Seca and on the Nordschleife show what great track potential there is in the Taycan. To prove your mettle on the track, it’s not enough to simply have as much power as possible. The overall package of accelerating and braking, cornering grip, aerodynamics, stability and fine-tuning has to be right. In the Taycan Turbo GT and the Taycan Turbo GT with Weissach package in particular, our engineers have achieved this in absolutely stunning fashion. They have already done a great job with the recently updated existing Taycan models. But our new GT cars yet again clearly raise the bar even higher in terms of driving dynamics.”

In the performance department, the Turbo GT introduces Attack Mode, a feature offering up to 120 kW of additional power for 10 seconds at the push of a button. Its pulse inverter, utilising silicon carbide technology, contributes to remarkable acceleration, reaching 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.3 seconds.

The commitment to lightweight construction is evident in the Turbo GT, shedding up to 75 kg compared to its predecessor. Carbon fibre components, ceramic brakes, and aerodynamic enhancements contribute to its racing prowess, pushing the boundaries of electric vehicle performance.

Inside, the EV offers a sporty yet comfortable experience. Race-Tex features, full bucket seats, and the Sport Chrono package create a driver-focused cockpit, emphasising the balance between performance and luxury.

The Taycan Turbo GT with Weissach Package shaves off an additional 70 kg. It features additional aerodynamics, a fixed rear wing, and exclusive interior touches, reinforcing its position as a true track-focused masterpiece.

This represents Porsche’s pinnacle in EV engineering. It combines breathtaking speed with cutting-edge technology and a commitment to performance on both road and track. As the EV sector becomes the central point of the automotive industry, diversification is key. Porsche’s commitment to creating electric powerhouse performance vehicles is vital to the sector on the whole. In doing so, they’re pushing limits, and creating something truly special.
