As standard, Taycan 4S is geared with sporty front seats with eight-way electrical adjustment, while other standard equipment goodies include keyless entry and ambient interior lightning.

Also, as expected, the Taycan 4S is geared with exclusive 19-inch Aero wheels, a revised front fascia with a new geometry, side skirts and rear diffuser in black, sexy LED headlights and Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus.

The second one, the Performance Battery Plus can generate a total output of 563hp. In both variants, Taycan 4S accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in mere 3.8 seconds and chases a top speed of 279km/h (155mph).

Furthermore, the latest family member features two permanently excited synchronous motors on the front and rear axles and a two-speed gearbox on the rear axle. Additionally, engineers have used a centrally networked control system for the chassis.

As a standard, Taycan 4S also features an adaptive air suspension with three-chamber technology and an electronic damper control PSAM system (Porsche Active Suspension Management).
