Porsche Taycan Wagon Spotted Playing In Snow

FEB 21 2019 BY ERIC LOVEDAY 16

Sure looks like it hit that snow bank, doesn’t it?

Seen here is the wagon version of the Porsche Taycan.

Obviously, it’s a rather early stage test vehicle. Just take a look at the rear. It’s clearly pieced together in a rather hodge-podge sort fo a way.

Porsche has committed to developing several versions of the electric Taycan and one is the wagon seen here.

Aside from smashing that snow bank, another oddity seen in the images is the mismatched front and rear wheels.

This isn’t the Porsche Cross Turismo concept, which is an off-roady version of the Taycan.

This Turismo version brings with it all the benefits of a proper wagon, meaning lots of cargo room. The Taycan wago is expected to launch after the standard Taycan, so likely two years away still. It will initially be offered only in AWD form, though RWD may follow.

As we previously stated of the Taycan wagon:

The Taycan Turismo will surely enter production, likely as just a version of the Taycan. Rumors suggest it will be offered in various trims too, with power output rising with price.

The standard Taycan will most likely come in three different stages of power, the Taycan Carrera, the Taycan Carrera S and the Taycan Turbo with an output between 400 to 600 horsepower.

Expected pricing for the Taycan is between $65,700 and $85,000. The wagon will be slightly higher.

Interesting

“Expected pricing for the Taycan is between $65,700 and $85,000″…well bye bye Model S! A real Model S size (?) Porsche for Model 3 performance money.

Well, except that is not going to happen of course but even for similar money this should make for a compelling Model S competitor. I would not be surprised if prices started north of Model S though.

Porsche tends to give surprisingly low base pricees for their cars, but nobody buys at the base price because they make pretty much everything an optional extra. That’s their pricing strategy and fine, it works for them, but it makes a comparison on starting price difficult because there’s a lot of things that are included in the base level Model S that probably won’t be in the base model Taycan. The tactic also gives Porsche a bit of flexibility in making the same, without having to compromise on the actual price. Most Porsche buyers aren’t really too worried about that; its one of those cars that if you can afford it, you’re probably not going to quibble too much over the cost of a few extras that you want, but if you do have someone on the fence about buying and its the difference between making a sale or not, it’s easier to throw in one of the extras than it is to drop the price. Having said all that, I haven’t seen what the starting package actually looks like for a Taycan yet; I’m basing this comment on what they do with their other cars, so it’ll be interesting… Read more »

“Between $65,700 and $85,000″

If that means specced out at $85K, that would be where Model S starts. If it means prices start between $65,700 and $85K than the higher end of that estimate seems quite plausible.

even as a camouflaged prototype it sure is a looker

Really?
Good for you if it rings your bell……to me it’s a fairly nondescript 4-door family sedan…..definitely not the future statement the ‘E’ would have made.

The European auto industry is reeling. Dieselgate, the WLTP fiasco, poor sales, but, sad to say there’s a reason things are about to get much worse. GM is not the only legacy auto maker closing multiple plants. Legacy auto in Europe are like a guy stumbling down the wharf with a knife in his back and Trump comes along and says, here let me twist that for you. A few days ago Merkel complained, then Toyota was grossing about the import tariffs and how they will hit the auto industry worldwide, which was in no great shakes anyway, what with the downturn in China, Europe, and elsewhere. Couple that with disruption of electric cars and no wonder they want to go play in the snow. It’s going to be a long cold lonely winter for passenger vehicles imported into America this year, so they may as well get used to it.. I would hope otherwise but the guy that hangs his red baseball cap up at Pennsylvania Ave. is dumber than a box of rocks, and more stubborn than an onary mule. The Taycan is probably one of the most anticipated vehicles, soon to hit our shores, but expect to… Read more »

I don’t see the european auto industry struggleing at the moment. VW, MB, Audi, BMW are all on their historic heights in sales or very close to it. What you write is FUD.

Sure. That’s why they are falling for the 5th month in a row:
https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-02-15/european-car-sales-fall-fifth-month-row
•VW Group sales drop 6.4% y/y; ytd down 6.4%
•PSA Group sales drop 2.3% y/y; ytd down 2.3%
•Renault Group sales drop 0.9% y/y; ytd down 0.9%
•Ford sales drop 6.6% y/y; ytd down 6.6%
•FCA Group sales drop 14.9% y/y; ytd down 14.9%
•BMW Group sales drop 3.1% y/y; ytd down 3.1%
•Daimler sales drop 1.5% y/y; ytd down 1.5%
Gee historic highs, except they are all falling.
Let’s see how they do in the next 5 months shall we.

I think the main hit to car manufacturing in Europe will be due to two factors you didn’t mention. First, the EU just signed a free trade agreement with Japan which will (in a few years) remove import duties for cars exported from Japan. Second, there’s a lot of manufacturing in the UK, and Brexit makes it basically necessary to at least make contingency plans to move manufacturing from the UK, or just go ahead and do it. Honda just announced they are closing their UK plant, and cited the former reason rather than the latter. Nissan will certainly follow suit.

Good points.

Plus UK consumers are not buy expensive items due future outcomes of Brexit.

No way the Porsche BEVs will start around $67k.

It does look like it is playing in snow because it is curious. XD

Funny how the fake exhaust is covered in snow in one of the pictures…

ugh.
That is butt ugly.
Porsche sells vehicles like this?
