The 2025 Taycan is receiving a pretty big update for the 2025 model year. While it's not an all-new car, the Taycan stays modern with a sharpened design, more power, more range, quicker acceleration and faster charging speed. It also gains more standard equipment, too.
The Taycan still comes in two body styles, the Taycan (sedan) and Taycan Cross Turismo. Each offers 4 different powertrain options (with RWD or AWD variants).
The rear-wheel drive Taycan sedan now runs to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds, making it 0.6 seconds quicker than the outgoing model. The Taycan Turbo S sedan is now reaches 60 mph in 2.3 seconds, 0.3 seconds quicker than it was previously, and for those keeping track that means it's now the quickest production car Porsche has ever offered!
Option the Sport Chrono package and you'll gain a push-to-pass function, essentially a boost mode providing an extra 70 kW for 10 seconds. That's made possible by the base Taycan delivering 60 kW more than it used to. The top model increased by 140 kW to 700 kW/938 hp – making it the most powerful production Porsche, well, ever.
This refreshed Taycan gains an extra 50 kW in 800V charging speed when the plug and the conditions allow, topping out at a max of 320 kW. Porsche has also increased the fast charging window in the new (larger) performance battery, meaning faster charging for longer. The result is 10-80% charge in just 18 minutes, in ideal conditions.
Porsche says this new Taycan delivers real-world range of 587 km (364 miles). That would be mighty impressive, especially since Porsche tends to under-promise on their range estimates.
New standard features include Lane Change Assist, heated steering wheel, Ambient lighting, electrically folding exterior mirrors with mirror surround lighting, Porsche Intelligent Range Manager (PIRM), a new cooling system, smartphone tray for wireless charging, electric charging ports on the driver and front passenger side and Drive Mode switch.
All updated Taycan models now come with adaptive air suspension as standard as well, with AWD models offering Porsche's new Active Ride suspension as optional. The Active Ride suspension keeps the body of the Taycan level at all times, even during dynamic braking, steering and acceleration. With a smooth ride, the system absorbs bumps almost completely.
Porsche has made a number of improvements to increase efficiency, including a new more powerful rear-axle motor, a modified pulse inverter, more powerful batteries, better thermal management, a next generation heat pump, and more.
The styling of the Taycan has been updated to give it a little extra presence, with new fenders and headlights that visually widen its stance. Those new headlights aren't just for show either, they feature high-res LED HD-Matrix Design with detailed optics. The taillights also recieve an update with a 3D glass-look design and welcome/leaving animations.

The Taycan was already one of the most compelling EVs on the market, if you have the dough for a Porsche. This new refresh keeps the Taycan competitive not only with other sedans in the market like the Tesla Model S and Lotus Emeya, but it helps keep pace with the other side of the Porsche showroom: The Macan was just unveiled with impressive specs of its own.
