It's said to be a little less sporty than the so-called Turbo GT, but it could be hotter than the current model.
At this point, we are aware that Porsche is giving its hot-selling Taycan a facelift soon, with various test vehicles already being spotted while testing in public; a supposed Taycan Turbo GT variant with a huge wing was seen before, but our spies caught another sporty variant that's not as aggressive as the former.
The sighting of a sporty-looking Taycan has sparked speculation about the release of more hot versions of the Porsche EV. While the identity of this "subtly sporty" model remains unclear, it will reportedly be a new variant that will either bear the Turbo GT Touring badge or will be just a Turbo GT without the distinctive large rear wing.
Of note, the front bumper under the camouflage appears to be similar to that of the supposed Turbo GT we spotted before. The rear corners also have concealments, telling us that this part will have revisions in the production model.
We also spotted a hardcore version of the Taycan before, complete with a roll cage and Recaro seats to complement the high-performance nature.
On the side, the Taycan is not expected to get any styling updates, considering that this is only a refresh. A closer look will show an intriguing detail, however, showing a black and silver Porsche crest on the wheel caps. This isn't a usual branding for the Stuttgart-based automaker, so we're curious if this will reach production.
We also got the chance to look at the interior of the upcoming refreshed Taycan, providing some insights into the design alterations expected. The upper parts of the dashboard show noticeable changes, particularly around the housing for the digital dials. The dark interior also appears to have an explicit amount of Alcantara and leather materials used.
We expect the facelifted models to make their debut in early 2024, so more details about the sportier versions will surely surface in the months to come. A facelifted Porsche Panamera is also coming, however, which means there's a chance that one of them will arrive earlier than the other.
