Porsche has continued to give the Taycan electric sedan updates since its debut in 2019, with the latest one coming in the form of a new GTS trim joining the lineup. It is positioned between the 4S and Turbo trim, and is the fifth trim being offered in the Taycan. 

While the 4S’s electric motor puts out 530PS, with the Turbo delivering 680PS, the GTS is smack bang in the middle, pushing 598PS. The dual-motor sedan can do the 0-100kmph sprint in 3.7 seconds, with  a maximum top speed of 250kmph. 

Paired with a 93.4 kWh Performance Battery Plus battery pack as standard, it comes with an 800 volt charging architecture like the other variants, to allow fast charging from 5 to 80 percent in just under 23 minutes. It is capable of a WLTP-claimed 504km on a single charge.

Speaking of borrowing from other trims, the adaptive air suspension is borrowed from the Turbo which has been calibrated for the GTS. It also borrows the six-piston red front brake calipers from the 4S, with the option to spec carbon-ceramic units for better stopping power. 

As for how it looks, the Taycan GTS features 20-inch wheels, GTS logos riddled all over, with the rear diffuser finished in gloss black, what’s new for the GTS is an optional panoramic sunroof with sunshine control. 

Porsche has also introduced a third body style to the Taycan with the Sport Turismo. Sure, it may look largely similar to the Cross Turismo, it's got the same ride height as its sedan counterpart to lower the centre of gravity, and it doesn’t have wheel arch cladding. Its rear spoiler is also painted to match the body. It is currently limited to the GTS trim, with further trim options in the pipeline for the future.   

Back home, Porsche recently launched the Taycan in India at prices starting from Rs 1.5 crore (ex-showroom, India). We’re yet to know when the GTS trim will join the lineup, but we expect it to happen in 2022. The Taycan goes up against the Audi e-tron GT in India.
