The facelifted Porsche Taycan and Taycan Sport Turismo have been spied wearing minimal disguise, and it looks like they’re getting a minor freshen-up.
Both vehicles seem to be in a production-ready state with the exception of some black camouflage on the bumpers.
It seems likely the updated Taycan will be revealed this year.
An earlier set of spy photos indicated Porsche might be working on a higher performance variant with a fixed rear wing.
Porsche has not confirmed if there will be any changes to its powertrains, however overseas reports suggest a tri-motor flagship may be on the cards.
Such a model would likely offer greater outputs than the current Turbo S flagship, which features a dual-motor all-wheel drive powertrain with 560kW of power and 1050Nm of torque.
Interior updates for the facelift haven’t been spied, however there could be changes to trim and colours as well as updated infotainment.
The Taycan entered production in 2019, and last year Porsche rolled out free dealer-installed software updates to bring all existing models up to model year 2023 specifications.
Updates include better thermal management, particularly in cold temperatures, allowing for more frequent rapid charging.
There’s also a range of powertrain updates that affect 2021 Taycan models, bringing improvements that were introduced for model year 2022.
In Normal and Range drive modes, the front motor of all-wheel drive Taycan models is almost completely disconnected.
Wireless Android Auto and integrated Spotify, introduced earlier in 2022, are available for older models as part of the update.
There’s also an updated look for the touchscreen’s start screen, greater support for voice controls, and an ‘optimised’ map view for the head-up display.
The parking sensors have improved range, and the semi-automatic parking assist system can now detect smaller spaces.
Though sales were down 19 per cent last year in Australia to 430 units, it was still the second best-selling vehicle in the large car over $70,000 segment.
The Taycan also outsold its Panamera stablemate, of which Porsche sold just 60 units.
