The Porsche Taycan range continues to expand beyond the trio that arrived at launch.

Since the model premiered, Porsche has added an entry-level eponymous RWD variant and the Cross Turismo estate body. Now it’s time for the Taycan GTS.

It’s priced from $237,000 before on-road costs and is expected to arrive in Australia from the second quarter of 2022.

The Taycan GTS – a legendary moniker to be fitting to Porsche’s first electric car, short for ‘Gran Turismo Sport’ – is positioned above the Taycan 4S and below the Taycan Turbo.

The company reckons it’s a “sweet spot” proposition, but then again it would say that…

As the Taycan’s “sporty all-rounder’ offering, the GTS offers a potent 440kW of power on overboost using launch control, and hits the 100km/h mark from zero in 3.7 seconds.

The adaptive air suspension (including Porsche Active Suspension Management), is specifically adapted to the GTS, “to the benefit of its lateral dynamics”.

Porsche says the setup of the (optional) rear-axle steering is also sportier. There’s also a “richer sound pattern” from the modified Porsche Electric Sport Sound enhancer.

There are various black or dark details on the exterior, such as the front apron, the bases of the exterior mirrors and the side window trims – as is traditional on a GTS.

Black Race-Tex features in the interior, as does a standard brushed aluminium interior package with a black anodised finish.
