Porsche Taycan interior revealed, blends digital with traditional

Porsche Taycan interior is a 911-inspired tech haven

Porsche is entering a new era with the new Taycan and the brand's first all-electric sports vehicle is setting standards in interior design. Yes, the Porsche Taycan responds to "Hey Porsche". Ahead of its September 4 debut, Porsche has finally revealed images of its first electric car's cabin and it is as futuristic as you thought it would be. 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. One of the main highlights on the inside is a massive 16.8-inch curved digital instrument cluster above the steering column. Instead it's free-standing and a little more minimalistic. It's encased in real glass that's been vapour-deposited and infused with a polarising filter to minimise glare and reflection. Because it's digital, Porsche can offer four different interfaces, depending on the driver's preference.

Touch-control panels at the edges of the screen are used to control things like chassis settings and the Taycan's lights.

A most interesting feature is an optional touchscreen for the front passenger, which forms part of an integrated black-panel glass band that also houses the 27.6cm central infotainment display.

While other modern Porsches feature a mix of touchscreens and touch-sensitive control panels, the Taycan will take that idea a step further. And then down on the centre console there's another touch-screen measuring 8.4 inches, featuring haptic feedback. The steering wheel will come in a choice of two styles.

With Porsche being Porsche, they weren't able to resist adding unique gadgetry inside the Taycan.

Lions starters Ragnow, Davis suffer ankle sprains
Ragnow played 1,074 offensive snaps (99.9 percent) last season and Davis played 976 snaps on defense (98.9). They were able to secure a 14-13 lead at halftime, and held that lead for the remainder of the game.

As for the air vents, Porsche has introduced "Virtual Airflow Control" which replaces the traditional, mechanically-operated louvres. The company's first fully electric auto can be specced with up to four front screens, including one that sits in front of the passenger.

The Taycan's colour and material design allows for individualized equipment, from traditional through to sustainable and modern. Besides so-called "classic leather", buyers can order "sustainably tanned Club Leather" dubbed OLEA.

The German automaker revealed the much-anticipated sedan's cabin late August, ahead of a full reveal September 4, and explained there'd be two interior options available for the auto, a natural olive-leaf-tanned Club Leather; as well as a fully leather-free vegan option with Race-Tex microfiber, made out of recycled polyester. Also eco-friendly is the Econyl floor covering, made from recycled materials like old fishing nets.

Porsche hasn't been shy about the Taycan's price (it will start around $90,000) or some of its specs (it will use 800-volt battery technology to allow fast charging of up to 350kW, and have somewhere between 200 to 300 miles of range, for example). There'll also be an optional interior accent package, with black matt, dark silver, or neodyme schemes. The doors and center console trims are offered in wood trim, matte carbon, embossed aluminum or fabric.
