Porsche has revealed its faster and fitter 2024 Porsche Taycan, which includes major upgrades hidden under a light set of aesthetic changes.

So, here in that report are the most prominent new specifications and updates that the new Porsche Taycan 2024 received.

New in Porsche Taycan 2024

  • Building on an already advanced electric vehicle platform, further development of the Taycan has produced impressive results, including increased power, efficiency, and capability. This is before we get into developing the Porsche chassis.

  • Key numbers include an improved headline range of 420 miles for the Taycan RWD equipped with the Performance Battery Plus.

  • At the other end of the spectrum, the top-spec Turbo S now produces an impressive 938bhp.

  • Porsche hopes these updates will add to the success of the Taycan, keeping it at the forefront of the fast-moving high-performance electric vehicle market.

New Porsche Taycan categories

The 2024 Porsche Taycan will still be available in three body styles: Saloon, Sport Turismo, and Cross Turismo, with prices ranging from £86,500 for the entry-level rear-wheel drive model to £161,400 for the Turbo S. Customers will receive updated versions this spring.

2024 Porsche Taycan battery and engine

Essentially, the Taycan uses the same J1 platform as before, with two battery sizes. Porsche's development work begins on the larger battery pack, which is the most popular option in most markets.

Increasing the total capacity from 93 kWh to 105 kWh, with the unit divided into 396 bag cells.

These cells are housed in a redesigned housing using fiberglass composite materials for underbody protection, and the overall weight is 9kg lighter than before, despite the increased capacity.

The new battery pack is paired with significantly upgraded chargers capable of reaching maximum charging speeds of 320 kilowatts, 50 kilowatts faster than before. Porsche's efforts focused not only on achieving these lofty goals but also on improving the Taycan's ability to utilize them in the real world.

According to Porsche, the Taycan can comfortably accept more than 300 kW of charging for more than five minutes at a time and will reach those charging speeds more quickly and over a wider range of temperatures.

Despite the 12% increase in battery size, the Taycan charges from 10% to 80% in 18 minutes, which is 4 minutes faster than before.

Plug it into a 400V charger, and speeds are limited to 150kW. There's also a new controller and software for the built-in 11kW charger, which will help you get the most out of your home wall device.

2024 Porsche Taycan engine

  • Porsche has installed a new rear electric motor that is lighter in the 2024 Porsche Taycan than before while also producing more power, up to 107 hp, depending on the model.

  • All Taycans also get some level of power boost, starting with the base single-engine, rear-wheel-drive Taycan (equipped with the Sport Chrono Package) with 429 hp, which is 26 hp more powerful than before.

  • The twin-motor 4S now has 590 hp (+67 hp), but the Turbo and Turbo S saw the most significant increases. These flagship models are rated at 871 hp (+200 hp) and 938 hp (+186 hp) respectively.

  • Contrary to rumors leading up to the reveal of the new Porsche Taycan, the Turbo and Turbo S models do not feature a triple-motor setup, with Porsche engineers instead opting for a more powerful rear-wheel drive with a better balance between overall performance and efficiency.

Taycan 2024 performance

  • As the numbers show, the new top-spec Taycan will not lack performance, as it can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 2.4 seconds.

  • A full set of performance figures will be revealed in due course, but Porsche's most dynamic Taycan models have yet to be revealed, including the GTS and the new GTS or Turbo S Performance Pack model, which already has lap times set around the Nürburgring.

Porsche Taycan 2024 body

Porsche also redesigned the Taycan's suspension systems. The basic design remains unchanged – cast aluminum double wishbones up front and a multi-link system at the rear – but all Taycans are now air-sprung, with the basic coil spring setup no longer available.

The system uses two-chamber air springs but also includes new dual-valve dampers, which have already been introduced in the Panamera and will soon appear in some Audi models.

This combination expands the range of adjustability for comfort and support, while also allowing for variable ride heights that can be optimized for aerodynamics at higher speeds.

Active suspension system

On top of this standard setup is a new active air suspension system, which allows each damper to be individually controlled via its own small, electrically powered compressor.

This system eliminates the need for physical anti-roll bars and can resist roll and pitch at any speed thanks to its advanced software.

Technology in Taycan 2024

The technology behaves entirely differently depending on the driver's specific mode, providing a very comfortable ride on one end of the spectrum while locking in complete body control on the other.

This system effectively replaces the Taycan PDCC active anti-rollover technology while adding more versatility and other tricks, such as a 55mm quick access mode that activates when the door is opened.

Porsche's Torque Vectoring Plus rear differential is standard on Turbo and Turbo S models; It can increase the speed of the outside rear wheel to improve the car's balance when cornering. Rear-wheel steering is also available across the range and comes standard on the Turbo S.

Taycan 2024 design and interior

  • The exterior design of the updated Porsche Taycan has received less attention, but Porsche has made enough changes to make it clear that this is a new model.

  • New front bumpers are standard across the range, with Turbo models getting their own bespoke units for the first time. There are also new aero-optimized wheels and tires in sizes ranging from 19 to 21 inches, as well as a new color palette.

  • The Turbo and Turbo S models also feature a new 'Turbonite' finish on the exterior details and badging, which was first seen on the new Panamera and Macan.

  • Porsche has introduced new Matrix LED headlights, with optional HD Matrix units that can effectively act as projectors, highlighting potential obstacles or illuminating a path that represents the physical width of the car to help squeeze through tight spaces at night.

Taycan interior

  • The cabin has not changed significantly, but updates have been made to the existing digital interfaces, which can be accessed via the main 10.9-inch touchscreen and the optional passenger display. The curved driver display now has a new layout option, but everything else remains unchanged.

  • Porsche is offering new color and trim options to complement the new Panamera, including a leather-free "Pepita" option and a Race-Tex cloth option.

Prices and arrival date of the 2024 Taycan

The updated Porsche Taycan will be available with the same three optional body styles as before: Saloon, Sport Turismo Estate, and the higher-riding Cross Turismo. The band structure remains unchanged, with the aforementioned GTS yet to be revealed.

Powertrain options are identical on all three body styles, with the exception of the Cross Turismo's unique Taycan 4 option.

Taycan 2024 prices

The new Taycan is now available to order, with the base model priced at £86,500 for the single-engine saloon, rising to £95,900 for the 4S and £134,100 for the Turbo.

The Turbo S  tops the range at £161,400, while the Sport Turismo adds £800 and the Cross Turismo an extra £ 1,100.

The 2024 Porsche Taycan is one of the upcoming luxury electric cars on the road.
