The new Taycan GTS Sport Turismo hits California

The third body version of the Taycan takes to the road as it makes its world premiere at the LA Auto Show.

It’s not every day that an undisguised but as yet still secret new Porsche hits the public roads ... Yet, just before its reveal, a Carmine Red Porsche Taycan GTS Sport Turismo was being driven around the streets of Los Angeles, with a crew of six photographers and videographers capturing every detail of every gleaming curve.

The new Sport Turismo is among those that have since been driven by the world’s media on the streets and race tracks of Southern California. So, here the team is, just after sunrise on a balmy LA morning, doing a bit of precision driving in close formation with a pair of minivans filled with J.F. Musial’s crew of photographers, Marc Urbano and Andi Hedrick, and a video team made up of Sam Rojas and Alex Fuller. It’s not a quick process, despite the feverish work rate of the talented American photographic crew, and hours of intense concentration are required before the team can break and, quite literally, head for the hills.

The Taycan makes effortless work and glides in virtual silence

They temporarily close each end of a sinuous ribbon of road, and the speeds of the synchronised driving pick up a little compared to in the city. Absolutely consistent line and speed is required as the Taycan closes in on one or other of the tracking vehicles, with the utterly linear power delivery of an EV being a welcome bonus in this case. Close passes are sometimes required for the cameras, which in turn require a “Negative, Ghostrider the pattern is full” exchange over the radio. It’s hard work, but an extraordinary privilege to be driving a car like this on a road like this, with police officers keeping it closed at each end.
