Porsche Taycan Turbo GT Prototype

Once again, Porsche has been caught in the act of test driving a Taycan model, featuring elements that are typically associated with the manufacturer’s GT sports cars.

Earlier, we had shared undercover images of a prototype for an upgraded Taycan, expected to hit the market later this year to celebrate the half-way stage of the electric sedan and wagon’s lifespan. But, the prototype revealed here is quite distinct.

Brief Overview of Porsche Taycan

The newly introduced aerodynamic features are impossible to miss. These include an elongated front splitter, substantial side skirts, a rear diffuser, and a rear wing. The front air curtains have been sealed off, implying the prototype may have active shutters or hidden air channels behind the front facade.

Further suggesting that this prototype could be a new high-performance version of the Taycan, Lars Kern has been spotted driving on occasion, including during some of the Nürburgring testing. As Porsche’s go-to driver for setting many of the company’s official ‘Ring lap times, Kern piloted the Taycan Turbo S last summer to clock a 7:33.35 lap time at the famous German circuit. Tesla later recorded a time of 7:25.231 with a Model S Plaid equipped with its optional Track Package, setting the current lap record for a production EV.

Porsche has remained silent on its plans to launch speedier versions of the Taycan, although there have been speculations about a stronger three-motor version being developed to compete with not only Tesla’s Plaid but also Lucid’s Air Sapphire and other upcoming EVs boasting four-digit horsepower figures. Such a version could receive a badge indicating it as a Taycan Turbo GT, mirroring the naming convention of the top-spec Cayenne Turbo GT.

Currently, the highest performing Taycan is the Turbo S grade, producing 616 hp (boosting to 750 hp temporarily), allowing a 0-60 mph sprint in 2.6 seconds and a top speed of approximately 162 mph. Rumors suggest that the future top-tier Taycan could pack up to 1,000 hp, potentially reducing the 0-60 time closer to 2.0 seconds and elevating the top speed to around 200 mph.

As mentioned earlier, Porsche is developing a mid-life upgrade for the Taycan. This upgrade, which will be implemented across the Taycan lineup, will feature more sophisticated matrix LED headlights for brighter, more accurate lighting. An upgraded infotainment system is also expected.
