First Look: 2022 Porsche Taycan GTS and Sport Turismo GTS

The new trim is a milder-motored version of the Turbo S, and it may be the best-balanced Taycan yet

LOS ANGELES, The golden state– You recognized this was unavoidable, ideal? I suggest, with Taycans already following 911 as well as 718 badging nomenclature– “FOUR” and also the unlikely-named “Turbo S”– a GTS variation simply needed to be in the cards. If you comply with the machinations of Stuttgart et al in any way, you know that what you and also I may see as the finest of split hairs is another entirely new trim level in Porsche-land.

That’s not to claim that the GTS variations of the four-door sedan and also the don’t-dare-call-me-a-station-wagon Sporting activity Turismo do not load a particular niche. Without a doubt, essentially a milder-motored variation of the Turbo S, it provides all the road-holding of the top-of-the-line Taycans however without the stomach-churning– as well as I truly do not mean this last as a compliment– acceleration.

Basically, the GTS’s 590 horsepower– 68 hp greater than the base Taycan, which makes it great for a 3.7-second sprint to 100 kilometres an hour– is mated to a super-sporty calibration of Porsche’s Active Suspension Administration system, as well as an even sportier application of Porsche’s rear-wheel-steering alternative.

Throw in GTS-specific 21-inch wheels– wearing super-grippy Pirelli PZeros, by the way– and some yummy chrome black exterior trim little bits, and you have the fundamentals of the upgrades flaunted by the $150,100 GTS ($152,700 for the GTS Sporting Activity Turismo). Porsche would certainly also like me to state the “richer audio pattern” of the GTS’s Porsche Electric Sporting activity Stereo, but seriously, who purchases an electric automobile for the noise it makes?

On the other hand, if the GTS manages virtually along with the Turbo version of the Taycan, it may be the deal of the bunch.
