Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo Spied Testing At The Ring
Do you see this ridiculously fast wagon taking on the Nürburgring? Well this is the future of performance wagons everywhere, welcome to the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo. This impressive machine silently faces the Nürburgring during what appears to be the final stages of testing, as most of the car is on display and almost no camouflage exists. The Taycan Cross Turismo is the first of many future versions of the Porsche Taycan EV and it’s already a personal favorite.
Imagine a car not only practical but also fast enough to shame a supercar and quiet enough to sneak past a sleeping pride of lions that is the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo. It’s no secret that there is a passionate subset of wagon enthusiasts who have flocked to automotive media and this writer is one of the stalwart, which is why there is so much good to say. Of course, Porsche builds great SUVs, but no matter what you do, an SUV has a higher center of gravity and is therefore compromised. A wagon, on the other hand, has a much lower center of gravity and better handling characteristics that are only increased by the Taycan’s floor which is made up of a dense battery pack.
Will the Taycan Cross Turismo break sales records and usher in a new era of appreciation for electrified luxury wagons? Only time will tell, but probably not. Porsche builds this car because it’s a very easy transition from the normal Taycan and builds something that excites the media and therefore keeps the buzz around the Taycan going. Porsche has proven that this formula works with the Panamera sports sedan and the Sport Tourismo wagon.
The Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo is almost ready for production and based on the spy video it will prove to be an impressive machine. In a world that is losing cars at an alarming rate, it’s great to see a new addition on the horizon.
