The focus at the IAA will be on the brand’s first all-electric sports car, the Taycan Turbo and Turbo S. “The Taycan redefines Porsche,” says Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG: “Our goal was to herald the era of electromobility for Porsche with the sportiest, most innovative and most emotionally charged vehicle. The Taycan embodies all our values. The experience from more than 70 years of manufacturing sports cars.”
To coincide with the start of the motor show, there are also new additions to the 911 family. The all-wheel-drive models 911 Carrera 4 Coupé and 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet with 283 kW (385 PS; 911 Carrera 4 models: combined fuel consumption 9.2 l/100 km, CO2 emissions 211-210 g/km) now extend the product range of the standard 911 model. Other highlights are three new hybrid models in the Cayenne series: the Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupé with a system output of 340 kW (462 PS; combined fuel consumption 3.2-3.1 l/100 km, combined power consumption 18.7-17.7 kWh/100 km, combined CO2 emissions 75-72 g/km) as well as the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid as Cayenne and Cayenne Coupé with 500 kW (680 PS; Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid: combined fuel consumption 3.9-3.7 l/100 km, combined power consumption 19.6-18.7 kWh/100 km, combined CO2 emissions 90-85 g/km; Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupé: combined fuel consumption 3.9-3.7 l/100 km, combined power consumption 19.6-18.7 kWh/100 km, combined CO2 emissions 90-85 g/km). The flagship model of the compact SUV model line, the Macan Turbo, is also making its motor show debut. In addition, Porsche will also present the vehicle with which the company will enter the ABB FIA Formula E Championship in November: the Porsche 99X Electric.
The new vehicles at the IAA therefore reflect the Porsche product strategy. In future, the sports car manufacturer will focus on three drive technologies, namely highly emotive petrol engines, powerful plug-in hybrid powertrains and all-electric drives.
Sports car, redesigned with sustainability in mind: the Taycan

The four-door sports saloon is a unique package, offering typical Porsche performance, connectivity and full everyday usability. At the same time, ultra-modern production methods and the product features of the Taycan set new standards when it comes to sustainability and digitalisation. The first models in the new series are the Taycan Turbo S and Taycan Turbo. They are at the cutting edge of Porsche E-Performance and are among the most powerful production models that the sports car manufacturer currently has in its product range.
