Porsche Taycan 4S propels electric car technology

Distinguishing features of the new Taycan 4S include the aerodynamically optimised 19-inch Taycan S Aero wheels and brake calipers painted in red, typical of Porsche’s two-door sports cars. The front fascia with new geometry, side skirts and rear diffuser in black ensure further visual differentiation. LED headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus) are equipped as standard. With all-wheel drive and a two-speed transmission on the rear axle, the drive architecture comprises the same main technical highlights as the rest of the Taycan family.

The Taycan 4S accelerates from a standing start to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds. The top track speed is 155 mph in both battery versions: the standard Performance Battery delivers up to 522 hp (390 kW) and the optional Performance Battery Plus, up to 563 hp (420 kW). The single-layer Performance Battery with a total capacity of 79.2 kWh comes as standard. The two-layer Performance Battery Plus from the Taycan Turbo S and Taycan Turbo with a capacity of 93.4 kWh is available as an option.

The rotor of the permanently excited synchronous motor on the rear axle has a length of 130 millimetres, which is lighter and more compact. The pulse-controlled inverter used on the front axle in the Taycan 4S operates with up to 300 amps, and the inverter on the rear axle with up to 600 amps.
