Porsche Taycan Turbo S Updated for 2021

2021 Porsche Taycan Turbo S

Porsche has given its Taycan Turbo S an update. Here's what's new.

Given how quickly battery tech and software advances, it should come as no surprise that car manufacturers are rolling out updates faster than ever. First on the list of updates are more choice of colours, with eccentric names like Mahogany Metallic, Frozenberry Metallic, Cherry Metallic, Coffee Beige Metallic, Chalk, Neptune Blue and Ice Grey Metallic.

The 2021 Porsche Taycan features a new Plug & Charge function which allows for convenient charging negating the need for a card or an app. Essentially, the car talks to the charger and charging and payments happen automatically.

Porsche is also offering functions on demand, a head-up display as well as an onboard charger with a capacity of up to 22 kW. Adaptive air suspension will feature Smartlift capability in the future, which is clever as the car can be taught to raise its nose over speedbumps.

Performance fans will be delighted to hear the Turbo S is now even faster. With its launch control functionality, it bests its 0-200 kph time by 0.2 seconds, taking just 9.6 seconds to hit this figure. It also shaves a tenth of a second off its quartermile time, taking just 10.7 seconds to complete this distance.
