It’s fair to say that we got pretty excited when the new Taycan GTS launched in a Sport Turismo body style, giving us the wagon back functionality of the Cross Turismo with the smooth and low and sporty look of the Taycan sedan.
We instantly fell in love with the looks and driving dynamics of the GTS, but we write about cars for a living and can’t afford the price. Which is why we still love the base model Taycan sedan for its sub-100,000 dollar pricepoint. So when we found out that Porsche was going to offer the Sport Turismo body in other trims than GTS we got super excited all over again. So imagine how bummed we were when we found out it was a GTS-only body here in the States!
That’s right, Porsche is going to offer the Sport Turismo in standard Taycan, Taycan 4S, Turbo, and Turbo S variants. But, and this is a big but, it’s Europe and Asia only for the time being. Hopefully if we shout loud enough, Porsche will listen to us and bring this magnificent electric wagon over to our shores. With as quickly as Taycans are selling in dealers right now, I can’t help but think it would be a massive sales success.
“The introduction of the Sport Turismo as the third body variant adds an athletic and practical all-rounder to our electric sports car model range,” says Kevin Giek, Vice President Model Line Taycan. “I am certain that the new variant will continue the Taycan success story. The balance and variety among the five Sport Turismo models is something that I find particularly appealing: the range features everything from an incredibly agile rear-wheel drive car to the extremely powerful Turbo S.”
Obviously what you want is an electric Porsche wagon, and the one we really want is the standard rear-wheel-drive model. Who wouldn’t want all that extra cargo space and rear headroom and stylish good looks in a fun and efficient package? Even if you have a bigger budget than ours, why wouldn’t you want the top dog Turbo S as a wagon? Come on Porsche, more wagon is more better.
