Porsche Taycan Sport Turismo Spied As Porsche Confirm Production

Automotive- Car and Driver

The vehicle is a derivative of the Taycan, which was originally known as the Mission E (earlier post). In concept form, it featured black wheel arch extensions, unique front and rear bumper bars, and a slightly different front end and spoiler setup compared with the sedan version. Its 800-volt architecture is prepared for connection to the charging network via both plug-in fast charger and induction and it supposedly capable of a 310 mile range (although that figure is based on the outdated NEDC test). The introduction of the Taycan is generating 1,200 new jobs in Zuffenhausen.

Porsche on Friday confirmed its Mission E Cross Turismo concept for production as an alternative body style for the Taycan electric liftback sedan.

To produce the vehicle, the sports auto manufacturer is adding 300 new jobs at its headquarters in Zuffenhausen, to the 1200 that will be created to produce the Taycan.

The 600-horsepower vehicle will, according to Porsche, have a NEDC range of 500 kilometers, or 310 miles.

The announcement is yet another step in the €6 billion plan by the company in order to prepare for the shift to electric mobility by 2022.

The auto will be one of the variations of the first all-electric Porsche - the Taycan, which arrives to the market in 2019 and generated 1,200 new jobs. It will also reach 60 mph in only 3.5 seconds and be able to add almost 250 miles of range back in just 15 minutes of charging.
