The 2021 Porsche Taycan Turbo S is the most powerful version of the electric Taycan model, which is one of the fastest production sports cars in the company’s lineup. All-wheel drive, instant torque and superb handling ensure an unforgettable Porsche Taycan driving experience.
2021 Porsche Taycan Turbo S transmission
The power plant of the Porsche Taycan Turbo S provides the electric car with a constant power of 460 kW (625 hp). Combined with Launch Control, the transmission is able to generate peak power of 560 kW (761 hp) and 1,050 N⋅m of torque. Acceleration of the electric car to the first hundred occurs in 2.8 seconds, and its maximum speed is 260 km / h.
The electric car has four-wheel drive and uses the Porsche 4D Chassis Control, which analyzes and synchronizes the chassis in real time.
The innovative chassis components of the Taycan Turbo S include three-chamber adaptive air suspension with electronically controlled dampers and an electromechanical roll stabilization system.
Four-wheel drive is provided by two efficient permanent magnet synchronous electric motors, one on each axle. The innovation of motors is their technological feature, which made it possible to incorporate more copper into the stator, the so-called “pin” of the stator coil winding. This innovation, with the same number of components, has significantly increased the power output and torque of the powertrains.
A 2-speed gearbox located on the rear axle is responsible for the operation of the transmission of the electric vehicle. This is a Porsche innovation that provides the Taycan with tremendous starting acceleration in first gear and offers equally high power reserves in second gear with a long gear ratio.
The energy recovery system is one of the best in the industry, generating significantly more energy at 265 kW than competing systems.
Porsche Taycan Turbo S battery and charger
The Porsche Taycan Turbo S is the first electric car in which the system voltage is not 400 V, but 800 V. This innovation is the main advantage of the electric car when it comes to charging it, because thanks to this, the Taycan’s range can be refilled to 100 km in just 5 minutes. using a powerful DC charging station.
You can charge the electric car from 5 to 80% of the battery capacity in 22.5 minutes using a fast charging station with a peak power of 270 kW. The Porsche Taycan can also be charged in 9 hours to 100% battery capacity from 11 kW AC sources.
The power reserve of the Porsche Taycan Turbo S, with a battery capacity of 93.4 kWh, is 412 km in the WLTP cycle. The charging port of the electric car is located simultaneously in the right and left fenders of the car.
Exterior 2021 Porsche Taycan Turbo S
The Porsche Taycan Turbo S is a completely new car from the ground up. It has an original exterior design, but at the same time retains the familiar look of Porsche models.
An original feature of the Taycan, not found in other Porsches that have always seemed “fit”, is that it looks quite wide and flat from the front with pronounced fenders. The silhouette of the car is outlined by the sporty roofline, which creates a fluid sports car image with the streamlined shape typical of Porsche style. The body design is optimized for the highest aerodynamic performance and makes an important contribution to the vehicle’s high range.
Interior of 2021 Porsche Taycan Turbo S
On the inside, the Taycan is a brand new Porsche that departs from its usual canon of “sporty simplicity”. The interior of the electric car clearly demonstrates the company’s transition into a new era for itself – a clear structure and a new architecture of interior design.
The detached curved instrument panel forms the highest point of the Taycan’s dashboard, defining its dominant informational position in the car, in which sport is first. Further up the dash, there is a 10.9-inch display for the infotainment system and a separate display for the passenger, which are combined into a single black glass panel.
There are practically no classic controls in an electric car, everything is digitalized and represented by touch buttons. In addition, most of the car’s functions are operated using voice control.
The Porsche Taycan is the first car from the company to offer leather-free interior trim. Instead, the Taycan uses recycled materials that further emphasize both practicality and sportiness.
