Porsche reveals interior of Taycan electric sports car




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.
