Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo Caught Completely Naked

Spy Shots / Comments

You'll just have to wait a little while longer for production.

It's been nearly one year since Porsche unveiled the entry-level Taycan 4S as a cheaper alternative to the more powerful Turbo model, but the Taycan family will continue to expand with new model variants, starting with the more practical Cross Turismo.

Originally, Porsche was planning to unveil the electric wagon later this year, but the launch has been delayed until early 2021 due to the ongoing pandemic. Happily, to ease the wait our spy photographers have caught Porsche testing a Taycan Cross Turismo prototype - and it's completely undisguised. With no camouflage covering the body, this is our best look yet at the Taycan Cross Turismo before it debuts next year.

Caught testing alongside the regular Taycan, the Cross Turismo prototype looks menacing with its paint and matching black wheels. Essentially, the Cross Turismo will be a more practical wagon version of the Taycan sedan with more cargo space, but this doesn't mean the sleek styling has been sacrificed.

Roof rails fitted to the prototype also give the Cross Turismo a more rugged appearance than its standard siblings. Inevitably, the Cross Turismo's longer body will make it heavier than the regular Taycan, so we're hoping this doesn't have a detrimental effect on the handling and performance.

Speaking of performance, we're expecting the Taycan's trims and powertrains to carry over to the Cross Turismo. In its entry-level 4S guise, the Taycan's dual electric motors generate a combined 523 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque, enabling a 0-62 mph sprint time of 3.8 seconds. In the range-topping Taycan Turbo S, the power output increases to 750 hp and 774 lb-ft of torque, reducing the sprint time to 2.6 seconds.

Expect the Cross Turismo Turbo S to be even more expensive than the sedan version, which starts at $103,800 for the 4S, $150,900 for the Turbo, and $185,000 for the Turbo S. Potentially, this means the range-topping Cross Turismo Turbo S could cost over $200,000.
