The Taycan, which will be launched in early September and arrive in U.S. stores this year, is at the vanguard of a series of full-electric vehicles that Porsche plans to roll out.
The EV, powered by two synchronous motors that generate more than 600 hp, can go from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3.5 seconds. The vehicle will have a range of 310 miles.
The Taycan’s cockpit — like its powertrain — is unlike any other Porsche.
Inspired by the original Porsche 911 from 1963, the dashboard is devoid of physical buttons and knobs. Instead, vehicle controls and settings are accessed digitally across five screens.
The dashboard is anchored by a 16.8-inch curved and customizable instrument cluster. A 10.9-inch high-resolution display built into the dash offers access to vehicle settings and media and navigation controls. As an option, a same-sized, similarly capable digital display can be added for the front passenger’s seat.
The Taycan’s center console also sports an 8.4-inch panel that allows driver and passenger to adjust climate settings. The display includes a track pad for a more ergonomic way to navigate vehicle and media settings on the driver display.
