Last year Porsche joined the growing high-performance electric car market with the 750-horsepower Taycan Turbo S, followed by the Taycan Turbo and the Taycan 4S. For 2021 Porsche added the rear-wheel-drive Taycan as the entry model — the only rear-drive Taycan in the EV lineup. For 2022 the Taycan GTS is added — positioned between Taycan 4S and Turbo — producing 590 horsepower. To create the entry model, Porsche engineers removed the front electric motor which reduced vehicle weight by about 200 pounds. The rear power unit and battery architecture remain unchanged from their configuration in the Taycan 4S, producing 402 horsepower with the standard battery; with the Performance Battery Plus horsepower jumps to 469. The all-wheel drive Taycan Turbo produces 670 horsepower and 626 lb-ft of torque, and the Taycan 4S makes 429 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque.
