Porsche released on Friday a rendering of the interior for its first fully-electric production vehicle, the Taycan sports car.
The vehicle will have a 16.8-inch digital instrument panel, 10.9-inch infotainment screen, and an 8.4-inch touch pad below the infotainment screen that can be used for climate settings. The Taycan’s instrument panel was inspired by that of the original Porsche 911, and drivers will have four display options that will highlight speed, power, or navigation.
Many functions that would traditionally be controlled with switches or buttons will instead by controlled with a touch pad, screen, or voice command. The vehicle will also integrate Apple Music into its infotainment system.
Customers will be able to choose between two kinds of leather or Race-Tex, a leather-free option made of microfibers.
The Taycan’s interior presents a contrast against Tesla’s interiors, which have increasingly concentrated settings and information into a single touchscreen that resembles a laptop screen or an iPad. Like Tesla’s vehicles, the Taycan minimizes buttons and knobs, but the layout of its dashboard and center console more closely resemble those found in traditional passenger vehicles.
Porsche will release the Taycan near the end of this year. Here’s what we know about it so far.
