Most Revealing Spy Shots Of 2020 Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo Yet

Porsche wants to make wagons great again with their upcoming electric Taycan Cross Turismo that our spies caught with its pants (or rather, camouflage) halfway down at the company’s parking lot in Stuttgart. [Updated 11/21/2019 ]

Porsche is continuing the development of the Taycan Cross Turismo, the electric model’s upcoming wagon variant, at the Nurburgring.

The long-roof version of the electric Porsche Taycan was originally seen being driven quite hard on the German track, with the test car said to be the range-topping Turbo S model because of the characteristic wheel design.

Despite Porsche having already revealed the Taycan sedan in full production guise, the Cross Turismo wagon model retains its development camo, but we already that it will share its front end through to the edge of the front doors with its sibling. The Cross Turismo, though, will get a unique styling at the back, much like the Panamera and its wagon-brethren, the Sport Turismo.

Porsche’s intentions of adding a second bodystyle to the Taycan range became official back in 2018 with the reveal of the Cross Turismo concept, which posed as a crossover-styled wagon featuring extra body cladding and a raised ground clearance.

Customers will be offered pretty much the same powertrain options with the regular Taycan, which as of now starts from the base 4S, the 4S Performance Battery Plus, the Turbo and the Turbo S models. All versions feature two electric motors, one per axle, for all-wheel drive and a two-speed transmission mounted at the back.

Performance should be on par with the regular Taycan, which on the range-topping Turbo S version offers up to 750 HP (761 PS) and 774 lb-ft (1,050 Nm) of torque on overboost, along with a neck-snapping 0-60 mph in 2.6 seconds (0-100km/h in 2.8) and a top speed of 161 mph (260 km/h).

As with almost every wagon variant available in the market, the upcoming Taycan Cross Turismo is expected to offer a much more practical (and larger) luggage space, together with slightly more room for the heads of rear passengers.

The Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo is expected to launch in the end of 2020, and if you find yourself wondering how the final product will look like, just take a look at the 2018 concept.
