The refreshed model has the quicker performance in the sprint.
The 2021 Porsche Taycan Turbo S’s acceleration from 0 to 124 mph (200 km/h) takes 9.6 seconds with Launch Control on. It is 0.2 seconds faster than before. The quarter-mile time now takes 10.7 seconds, or 0.1 second less than the previous 2020 model’s.
A color head-up display comes as an option, while a Smartlift function is standard now for the Taycan with the adaptive air suspension. It allows the driver to preset, when the front lift system automatically kicks in, and, in addition, adjusts the vehicle’s height on the fly.
An optional 22-kW onboard charger is available for the 2021 model. It cuts the charging time in half compared to the 11-kW charger.
Porsche also added a new function limiting the battery charging capacity to around 200 kW.
A 79.2-kWh battery pack comes with the base Taycan 4S. A larger, 93.4-kWh battery continues to be standard on the Turbo and Turbo S models.
