Styling updates include restyled bumpers, new alloy wheels and revised light clusters.


Starting with the styling, the Taycan gets revised bumpers front and rear along with tweaks to the light clusters. All variants also ride on new aero-optimised wheels. The cabin meanwhile, looks more or less unchanged from the outgoing model replete with the digital heavy layout of up to three screens across the dashboard fascia and touch-sensitive controls on the centre console. While this sums up the physical changes to the 2024 Taycan, the more notable upgrades are under the skin.

The optional Sport Chrono pack adds a new push-to-pass function temporarily boosting output by up to 94 bhp for 10 seconds on the all-wheel drive models. While we still have to wait for full details on the specifications, Porsche has revealed the Turbo S variants get a notable bump in power – up from the current 751 bhp to 939 bhp making it Porsche’s most powerful road car to date. The base Taycan too gets more power with Porsche saying that it now develops an additional 80 bhp.

Porsche says it has also made changes to the Taycan’s other powertrain components including a modified pulse inverter with optimised software, more powerful batteries, revised thermal management, a next-generation heat pump and a modified recuperation and all-wheel-drive strategy. The carmaker claims that the battery packs now offer greater capacity while also being lighter. The optional Performance Battery Plus now has a gross capacity of 105 kWh, increased from 93 kWh.


Range too has improved across the board with Porsche claiming a 35 per cent-plus improvement depending on the variant. The variant with the longest range now offers a range of up to 678 km on a single charge. The new Turbo S now gets a claimed range of 630 km while the base Taycan can cover up to 678 km (all figures, WLTP).
