Ahead of the official launch of the new 2020 Porsche Taycan next week, Porsche has unveiled the final production-ready spec images of what the interior will look like. Obviously there are quite a lot of connections between the current Porsche interior design language and this new all-electric sports sedan, but there are quite a few departures from the norm as well. Check it out and let us know what you think!
The first thing you may notice is the outright exclusion of any analog gauges in the display. There is a new 16.8-inch screen that curves to provide you with all of the information you need while driving. You can set this display up in a number of different configurations. Classic mode will give you the rounded instrument dials you're familiar with in a Porsche. Map mode will replace the power meter in the middle with a navigation map. You can also make it so the entire instrument cluster screen is a navigation map, if you so choose. And finally Pure mode will display only the essentials, like speed and a minimalist navigation arrow. Small touch screen buttons line either side of the cluster for operation of the lights and chassis functions.
The steering wheel is offered in a basic standard wheel and the now-familiar GT Sports steering wheel, which has the dial in the lower right quadrant to switch between driving modes.
There are two more screens in the center console, including the infotainment screen across the top of the dash, and the central command control screen in the "waterfall" above the twist shifter. The central command screen provides access to pretty much all operations of the car, from HVAC to chassis functions to a display for the car's remaining battery range.
Speaking of infotainment, the Taycan will come with integrated Apple Music. You won't even need a cell phone to access all of the best streaming music from pretty much all of history.
