Porsche has begun working on a facelift for the Taycan, which cemented the 100,000 production milestone in a span of just about three years on November 7, 2022. The mid-cycle refresh, expected for the 2024 model year, should bring substantial updates to the company’s first electric car. Here’s everything you can expect from the 2024 Porsche Taycan.

Design

Evidenced by spy shots of partly camouflaged test prototypes, the 2024 Porsche Taycan should feature changes to the bumper, lights, and grilles across body styles and variants. The current model is available in sedan, Cross Turismo, and Sport Turismo versions. The sedan comes in base, 4S, GTS, Turbo, and Turbo S variants. The Cross Turismo’s variant line-up includes 4, 4S, Turbo, and Turbo S. The Sport Turismo is available in standard, 4S, GTS, Turbo, and Turbo S variants. Porsche may offer several new wheel options for the 2024 Taycan.

While there is no confirmation, we’ve imagined the 2024 Porsche Taycan with headlamps without the ‘handles,’ while reworking the bumper with inputs from recent spy photos.

Interior & Features

Taycan was Porsche’s test bed for experimenting with radical changes to its interior. The EV, for instance, is the company’s first car with a fully-digital instrument cluster, which might have been considered a no-no by purists had it been offered in an iconic sports car like the 911. Another Porsche first is a leather-free interior. Eventually, the company will be able to incorporate these things into more models as customers gradually accept them. In addition to trying some new-to-Porsche features, the refresh would also refine existing ones.

Spy pictures indicate Porsche may introduce new ADAS functions on the Taycan, enabled by a new radar system positioned behind the windscreen. We expect the company to offer new options for the upholstery and trim.

Specifications

Facing heat from Tesla and Lucid Motors, Porsche is likely to bring technical upgrades to the Taycan with the facelift. Rumor has it the 2024 Porsche Taycan range will include a new triple-motor variant with more than 1,000 horsepower to take on the Tesla Model S Plaid and Lucid Air Sapphire.

While the dual-motor Taycan Turbo S does 0-60 mph in just 2.6 seconds (2.7 seconds in the case of the Cross Turismo version), the triple-motor Taycan may accomplish the same in just around two seconds. The new variant may have different brakes, an enhanced cooling system, and a modified chassis, necessitated by higher performance levels.

Existing Taycan variants may get a bump in the range, which is currently the biggest issue and a major let-down, especially compared to the American rivals. The Tesla Model S can travel up to 396 miles on a full charge, while the Lucid Air’s maximum range is 520 miles, both being EPA-est. figures. The best the Porsche Taycan can do is just 246 miles. The 2024 Porsche Taycan’s maximum range could be close to 275 miles — still nowhere near rivals but at least better than today’s car.

Price & Release date

The 2024 Porsche Taycan could start arriving at U.S. dealers as early as late 2023. Expect prices to start at just under USD 90,000.

TopElectricSUV says

The new Taycan should come with considerable performance improvements, software enhancements, added comfort and convenience features, and a slightly improved range. Although it falls far behind the competition in terms of range, it will likely be one of the best high-performance electric cars.
