Porsche Taycan review – interior and tech
Loaded with tech and built with an impregnable solidity, but is it a bit stark?
Taycans can be configured as a four- or five-seater, but despite quite a large footprint and no combustion engine, is actually quite cramped inside. As with the mechanical package, there’s huge variation between models, basic versions receiving part-leather trim and basic plastic trim elements that walk the line between clean and austere.
Pay more money and you can lux things up with the likes of 18-way electric sports seats, rear-axle steering, the Sport Chrono package and Porsche Electric Sport Sound, all of which are standard on the Turbo S.
The interior’s approach is otherwise typical Porsche, but with a fresh simplicity exemplified by the curved driver information screen that replaces the typical roundels. The floating instrument binacle features a five-dial layout, but like the 911’s the outer two dials are obscured by a three-spoke steering wheel that’s a further evolution of the 918 Spyder’s. Two further screens occupy the dash and console, with a further display positioned in front of the passenger optional.
