Don’t worry, if the retina-challenging Rubystar is not your thing you don’t have to have it. You could have other ‘90s classics like Acid Green, Moonlight Blue or Viola Metallic instead. They are among 65 additional colours now available for the Taycan as part of a new paint-to-sample option, in addition to the 17 standard paint colours. Pay more and you can have your Taycan colour-matched to... well, pretty much anything you want.
What else has changed for the Taycan, and its Taycan Cross Turismo sister? There are tweaks to the infotainment system to incorporate Android Auto and the car can now parallel or reverse park itself without you in it, controlled by an app on your smartphone. Somewhat surprisingly, it’s the first time the Taycan has been able to do that.
But the biggest enhancement – aside from the Rubystar, obviously – is a promised boost in range. Depending on model, a Taycan can officially make its batteries last between 220 and 300 miles. While these official figures aren’t changing, Porsche says that in real-world driving the car is much more likely to meet them.
