  • The 2025 Porsche Taycan Turbo S cranks output from 750 hp to 938 hp.
  • For 2025 Porsche increased the base price from the current $92,440 to $101,395, with similar price increases across the board.
  • Porsche says its order books are open now, but you can expect production ’25 Taycans to start showing up this summer.

It’s hard to believe that the Porsche Taycan is already almost four years old. Since its launch in 2019, so much has changed in the battery-electric space, especially among high-priced, high-performance machines.

It only makes sense that Porsche is updating the Taycan for 2025 and throwing a substantial amount of power at the Turbo S model, as well as updating the entire line’s looks, standard features, and underpinnings.

The most surprising news is a huge leap in performance at the top of the Taycan’s price sheet. The top-flight Turbo S now sends 938 hp to its wheels, which is a leap from the current model’s 750 hp. This also puts it within 100 hp of the popular Tesla Model S Plaid.

At the bottom of the ladder, Porsche says its entry-level Taycan adds 80 hp to the spec sheet, bringing the grand total to 482 hp. That extra oomph helps rocket the base model Taycan to 60 in 4.5 seconds, improving the sprint by over half a second.

While the company hasn’t disclosed performance specs for the rest of the lineup, the company does note that all Taycan models in 2025 will be quicker than the current examples. Helping improve these performance figures is a new rear motor, software refinement, and additional hardware changes.

Porsche hasn’t commented on any range figures for the ’25 Taycan, outside of saying they’re going to have more range.

The Performance Battery Plus that’s stuffed underneath the Taycan Turbo and Turbo S packs 105 kWh, which is up from the current 93.4-kWh gross capacity. Porsche also says the entry-level battery pack now offers 89-kWh gross capacity, an increase from 79.2 kWh currently.

Helping to make the most out of your braking events, Porsche has cranked up energy recuperation to 400 kW at high speeds, up from the current model’s max 290 kW recuperation figure.

Adding to that is a 50-kW increase in charging capacity, so it can now charge at 320 kW in ideal conditions. Porsche also includes a 150-kW DC/DC converter as standard equipment to help charging speeds on 400-volt charging networks.

Adding to these updates is a new list of standard features. Porsche adds its adaptive air suspension as standard for all Taycan models, with its Active Ride suspension available on all-wheel-drive models.

Lane-change assist, a heated steering wheel, and electrically folding mirrors are also joining the base-model Taycan without tacking on any extra options.

Of course, with any serious refresh, there’s an update to the Taycan’s styling, too. Porsche revised the front and rear, with new lighting fore and aft. The updated LED headlights offer an HD Matrix design.

These updates come with a bump in the price. Kicking off the Taycan for 2025, you’ll find the base models start at $101,395. That’s nearly $10,000 more than the current Taycan but does come with additional features.

At the top of the ladder, the Taycan Turbo S now starts at $210,995, which is a bump from the current $196,550 base price. Porsche says its order books are open, but these are expected to start hitting dealers this summer.

Even though there’s a bump in the pricing, the performance increases across the board could help Porsche move more Taycans from its showrooms.

After a strong first full model year selling 9419 units, according to Wards Intelligence sales data, the number has dropped off to consistent but lower 7271 and 7285 examples sold in 2022 and 2023, respectively. This update could help push the Taycan ahead of the Porsche 911 on the sales charts.
