Porsche is said to be planning an electric Panamera and a second-generation Taycan

(Motorsport-Total.com/Motor1) – Porsche is planning a second generation Porsche Taycan (buy used Porsche Taycan cars now) along with an electric version of the Panamera. Both are said to be based on the group’s new Scalable Systems (SSP), but with a special edition called the SSP Sport.

Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Executive (long version)


One of the special features of the SSP Sport is the extremely low floor in the passenger compartment, which is made possible by a slightly thicker battery, reports Autocar. The Taycan’s “foot garages” have also been adopted – a curtain on the battery that provides more legroom in the back.

The electric Panamera should also have the same features. The new storage variant will be sold alongside versions with a combustion engine and a plug-in hybrid drive. The latter is to continue to be built on the basis of the standard driving system (MSB).

The second generation Taycan will probably come in 2027

In addition to the Panamera, the Bentley Continental and Flying Spur models are also based on this third-generation modular system (with rear-wheel drive/all-wheel drive and long-mounted engines) as well as the MQB and MLB.

As mentioned, the Panamera electric technology comes from pure electric platform SSP. The new variant will have the same wheelbase and length as the current long-wheelbase Panamera, namely 3,100 mm and 5,199 mm respectively.

With a wheelbase of 2,900 mm and a length of 4,963 mm, the current Taycan is almost 20 centimeters shorter. The second generation Taycan, which according to reports will be launched in 2027, will probably have similar specifications.

Codename K1 – a seven-seater SUV?

In addition to the two electric Taycan II GTs and the electric Panamera, Porsche is also planning electric successors to the Macan and Cayenne, which are scheduled to debut in 2024 and 2025 respectively. However, these electric SUVs should not rely on the SSP, but on the Premium Platform Electric (PPE).

But an electric SUV based on the SSP Sport is also planned: five meters long, A seven-seater SUV, locally named K1, which will be launched in the middle of the decade and will be produced at the Leipzig factory. Not mentioned in the Autocar article the electric successor to the twin pair 718 Boxster/718 Cayman.

Electric Boxster, electric Cayman, electric Panamera, Taycan II, electric Macan, electric Panamera and the large seven-seater SUV K1: an overview of the range of electric vehicles planned by Porsche is now clearly visible. Inside of Porsche, on the other hand, is skeptical about the 911’s electrification. Here, brand boss Oliver Blume (who is now also CEO) is more likely to use plug-in hybrid drives with electronic fuel as fuel.
