The Taycan kicked off Porsche’s electric revolution and that journey continues with a handful of updates for the 2023 model year.
Most of the changes are software-related, as buyers will find an updated Porsche Communication Management System with a revised user interface as well as a “color tile display”. Other updates include Spotify integration and wireless Android Auto support.
The technical updates are complemented by a “revised HUD design” and a new feature to filter EV charging stations by power output. The latter will come in handy as it will make it easier for owners to find high-speed DC fast chargers.

The EV also gets a handful of powertrain updates, as the “front motor deactivates in Normal and Range modes on dual-motor Taycan variants to reduce parasitic loading.” Thermal management has also been improved as the battery can now precondition faster and at a higher temperature, ensuring “optimal charging curve performance even at higher SOC”.

On the hardware side, there are minor updates to wheel choices and expanded availability of variable lighting control for the panoramic glass roof. The latter allows users to adjust the transparency of the roof with just a few clicks.
Finally, customers can have their Taycan prepared for front and rear dashcams. These are available from Porsche Tequipment and are equipped with vibration, radar and GPS sensors as well as a lens with polarizing filter.
While hardware changes are exclusive to 2023 Taycans, software updates will be available for 2020, 2021 and 2022 models in the “very near future”.
