There’s something magical about the Porsche Taycan Turbo S. It is so unique, so different, so spectacular in every possible way that even the most jaded automotive enthusiast will find his or her love for the automobile rekindled. Driving the Porsche Taycan Turbo S isn’t just driving the quickest car on the road at any given time, it’s understanding where the future of automotive is going and falling in love with the prospects.
The Porsche Taycan Turbo S has four distinct personalities that can be called upon at the simple turn of a dial on the steering wheel. From there drivers can select between Eco, Normal, Sport, and Sport Plus modes, unleashing progressively more range or power depending on which way they turn. In Sport Plus mode, flooring the right pedal is accompanied by a sharp jump forward that will have the skin on your cheeks pulling back towards your ears. There’s a lightly aggressive sound that comes with the breathtaking leap forward that isn’t tacky or fake. It feels organic to the car, a different kind of car.
Back to Normal, you can cruise around and appreciate the build quality and fine interior of the Taycan Turbo S. Although electric vehicles have always been known for their spectacular accelerations, the quality of the experience inside has been somewhat lacking. Until now. This is a true luxury car with the finest leathers and expert craftsmanship inside. The stitching is immaculate, the seats are perfectly upholstered, there are no gaps in between the various components, the infotainment system is modern and functional, and everything just exudes quality.
The Porsche Taycan could be Porsche’s most expensive model and its most luxurious even with a combustion engine under the hood. The fact that it has an electric motor dials up the performance and adds to the experience, but you can see this is a car that was designed to be a great vehicle first and an EV second. Not the other way around like we often see in the industry.
Porsche understands that being electric isn’t enough anymore nor is it enough to justify a car into existence. If a Porsche is to wear the crest, it most create an experience unlike any other the person behind the wheel has ever felt. The Porsche Taycan Turbo S, with its exceptional accelerations, premium interior, remarkable design, and advanced technologies, does exactly that.
The Porsche Taycan 4S and the Porsche Taycan Turbo will deliver sensibly the same experience. The major difference is in pure acceleration where the Taycan Turbo S manages to reach 100 km/h in under 3.0 seconds in the right conditions and on the right drive setting. But regardless of which Taycan you choose, you will experience the automobile like never before.
