We don't have long to wait now.
The regular Porsche Taycan is already a fantastic machine and a testament to what Porsche engineers can do even when taking a foray into an unknown technology. But if there's a Cross Turismo version of the Panamera, there needs to be a CT version of the Taycan. We've spotted the all-new model at the Nurburgring wearing some vinyl that exaggerates the size of the taillights, and we've also captured it without any camo at all, and it looks stunning. It was supposed to arrive late last year already, but we don't have much longer to wait. How do we know? Former F1 driver Mark Webber, who is an ambassador for Porsche, has announced that we'll see it in "less than eight weeks".
A Formula One driver's opinion of a car is always something we're interested in, and it seems that Webber is a fan of the new wagon, saying that it "drives like a Porsche, feels like a Porsche, smells like a Porsche." In his post above, the car is still wearing some camouflage but looks otherwise ready for production. With more space and more ground clearance, the Taycan Cross Turismo is set to be the most practical eco-car that Stuttgart has ever produced. These attributes don't dilute the Taycan's incredible performance though, and we expect even the base model to offer over 500 horsepower.
We'll know exactly how much range will be offered, along with what kind of power output the various introductory models will provide when the reveal happens, but we don't expect the more spacious Taycan model to suffer much in terms of performance compared to the regular models. With Webber confirming its world premiere in less than two months, we'll be able to provide more information by the end of the first week of March at the latest. The arrival of the Taycan Cross Turismo scratches our wagon itch a little, but could it form the basis of an Audi e-tron GT Avant someday? We certainly hope so.
