Could Porsche be unveiling 1,000hp Taycan on March 11? Wait and see

STUTTGART: The Porsche Taycan is set for a significant update in the 2025 model year, introducing a new performance flagship likely named the Taycan Turbo GT, debuting on March 11.

This model, hinting at superior track performance with a large rear wing, achieved a Nürburgring lap time of 7:07.55, surpassing the Tesla Model S Plaid by roughly 18 seconds and closely challenging the Rimac Nevera's record.

Expected to boast around 1,000hp, the Taycan Turbo GT's price is speculated to be around US$250,000 (RM1.2mil and at around the price of Lucid Air Sapphire), marking it as a high-end offering in the updated Taycan range, which starts sales this summer.

The current top variant, the Taycan Turbo S, will see an increase of 188hp to 938hp, with pricing for the range capped at US$210,995 (RM994,000), excluding the flagship model.

The forthcoming Taycan iteration aims to offer superlative dynamics and performance, possibly incorporating a third electric motor for enhanced power, despite its weight implications.

Porsche's update includes a price hike across the lineup, setting the stage for a luxury electric sedan that competes with the likes of Lucid Air Sapphire and AMG EQS, but at a premium, reflecting its superior performance and brand prestige.
