1,092HP Porsche Taycan Turbo GT is the Most Powerful New Car in Australia

With the launch of the long-teased Porsche Taycan Turbo GT (AUD$416,600), the brand has shifted the goalposts once again. Not only is this the most powerful new car money can buy in Australia, but it’s the most powerful series-production Porsche ever with up to 1,108PS, 815kW. It’s also the quickest in a straight line with a mind-bending 0-100km/h time of 2.2 seconds for the Weissach package-equipped vehicles.

The 0-200km/h time of 6.4 seconds is equally as impressive. That’s 1.3 seconds quicker than the Taycan Turbo S and 0.8 seconds quicker than the Porsche 918 Spyder, which manages the 0-200km/h sprint in 7.2 seconds.

Interestingly, the Taycan Turbo GT does not use a tri-motor set-up as first thought. Instead, it makes use of 900-ampere pulse inverters with silicon carbide semiconductors to deliver more power and torque than the 600-ampere inverters in the Taycan Turbo S. The transmission ratio and gearbox have also been revised to withstand the 1,340 Nm of torque being sent to the wheels.

Of course, in typical Porsche ‘GT-department’ fashion, there’s a weight saving of up to 75kg when compared to the Taycan Turbo S thanks to carbon fibre trims on the B-pillars, upper shells on the door mirrors and the side skirt inlays, and more. You’ll find full bucket seats made of CFRP, a lightweight luggage compartment, and the electric soft-closing function of the tailgate has been removed to save weight.

The new flagship Taycan Turbo GT also includes a range of optional features as standard. Most notably, the Porsche Active Ride suspension receives a GT-specific tune for ‘dynamic driving situations’. More aggressive performance summer tyres are mounted to exclusive 21-inch forged lightweight alloy wheels with relief-milled spokes to further save weight and help cool the standard-fit ceramic brakes.

Speaking of brakes, they might be based on Porsche’s PCCB but they’ve managed to shave 2kgs with design changes to the disc chambers and brake caliper housing. They’re painted exclusively in Victory Gold.

You’ll notice the aggressive aero that’s been added to the exterior. Notably, a lower front lip spoiler and adaptive spoiler at the rear with a Gurney flap in high-gloss carbon weave. Matrix LED headlights will be fitted as standard, but you can also choose HD Matrix LED headlights at no extra charge.

Step up to the Taycan Turbo GT with Weissach package and you’ll gain air deflector elements on the underbody, a new front diffuser, a fixed rear wing in a carbon-weave finish, and wing supports fixed to the body. Combined, these elements offer 220kg of downforce.

Take your pick from a range of ‘Turbo GT’ decals in Volt Blue or Black (matte)/ Black (high-gloss) and exclusive paint options too. Our favourite is the Pale Blue Metallic and Purple Sky Metallic (as pictured).

Step inside the Porsche Taycan Turbo GT and the most noticeable change is the addition of lightweight full bucket seats in a carbon-weave finish (Adaptive sports seats Plus optional at no extra charge) and GT sports steering wheel in Race-Tex with a 12 o’clock marking. There’s also a plethora of Race-Tex and Turbo GT logos everywhere, including the headrests on the front seats.

Choose the Taycan Turbo GT with Weissach package (at no extra cost) and you’ll lose most of the equipment that’s not designed for the track, including the rear seats that get replaced with high-quality lightweight carbon cladding with a storage compartment. There are no foot or boot mats, less insulation material overall, and a manual charge port on the left-hand side of the car only. This helps save an additional 70kgs over the Taycan Turbo GT or 145kgs compared to the Taycan Turbo S.
