At the LA Auto Show today, the automaker unveiled the Taycan GTS and Taycan GTS Sport Turismo.

Kevin Giek, vice president Model Line Taycan, explains how they fit into the Taycan lineup:

“The Taycan model range has grown steadily since its world premiere in 2019. Three body variants with up to five engine options offer something for everyone."

I am particularly pleased that we now also have a Taycan with the legendary GTS moniker. It is positioned above the Taycan 4S and below the Taycan Turbo derivatives, so it represents a real sweet spot in the range.”

The Taycan GTS sedan and GTS Sport Turismo are equipped with the same permanent magnet single-speed front motor, larger permanent magnet rear motor, and two-speed rear transmission found in the previous performance models, but the total power output is limited to 590 hp compared to 670 hp for the Taycan Turbo.
