The all-electric Porsche Taycan is getting some significant updates for the 2025 model year.

We were lucky enough to get some Quick Spin early drive time in Southern Spain, both through some epic countryside scenery and on Circuito Monteblanco near the town of La Palma del Condado.

Porsche has addressed virtually every area of all Taycan models from new front and rear designs and revised lighting for the exterior, to the updated tech and new materials of the interior, to increased standard content all around.

But increased range is usually the most anticipated update when it comes to EVs, and that should be the case for all Taycans, as both the standard and Performance Battery Plus get a boost in capacity. Official numbers are not out just yet,but expect 20-30% more available miles. All that plus more power too, coming not from just software upgrades, but actual hardware changes.

All Taycan’s get a new rear motor with varying levels of output based on trim level. Base rear-drive Taycans getting a 60-kW increase, which is enough to shave more than half a second off the 0-60 time.

More notable is the all-wheel drive Turbo S, which gets an additional 140-kW of output for a new total of 700 kW; increasing horsepower from 750 to 938 and helping it now to get to 60 in just 2.3 seconds.

But most impressive is a new Taycan Turbo GT, available with and without a lightweight Weissach Package. At 1,019 horsepower, it’s the most powerful production Porsche ever.

BRIAN ROBINSON: “So, how do you make the Porsche of EVs even better? Well, more range is a good way, and more power is also a good way. They’ve done both here with the new Taycan; but above all of that, it’s really just this car’s superb driving experience that sets it apart from other high-performance, high-end EVs.”

Porsche is taking orders now for the 2025 Taycan. Plan on shelling out at least $100,000, with the Turbo GT around $230,000. And we’ll have more Quick Spins… soon!
