Is a crossover just a slightly lifted station wagon? Is a station wagon just a crossover with a different name? As rare as they are becoming could station wagons be cooler than SUVs, crossovers, and pickup trucks? Only the future can tell. But if all future wagons are based on the 2021 Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo would that signal a station wagon comeback? Right now the Taycan is the neigh-plus-ultra of the car world. Could that perception rub off on all future wagons?
All of the good and the bad about the Taycan is based on your preference. If you want two-wheel-drive because you think that all-wheel-drive is overhyped, overweight, and too expensive then there may be a future Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo for you. Rumors are that the wagon will come as a cheaper two-wheel-drive version.
A two-wheel-drive version of a Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo could be looking at under $100,000
Right now the Taycan 4S is the cheapest Taycan sedan at a hair over $105,000. If a two-wheel-drive version were to surface then we could be looking at a wagon version under $100,000. Just barely under. And could it be a better Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo? Many think so.
The Porsche Taycan has everything going for it. One thing that is especially intriguing and novel is the two-speed transmission. It’s the first EV with such an option. It was able to squirt the Taycan sedan to 0 to 60 mph in 2.4 seconds according to Car and Driver. That means we should expect the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo to replicate that feat. Or, at least come very close to it.

What we’re trying to say is that you can expect the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo to mirror whatever it is that turns your crank, but in a wagon version. Fuel economy, interior appointments, and comfort, infotainment and connectivity, safety and driver-assist features, and overall Porsche goodness; it’s all the same.
It’s a lot of cha-cha but in this realm look at what you get for those 100 clams
At 100-Gs what more could you want or expect? It’s a lot of cha-cha but in this realm look at what you get for those 100 clams. Some would say there is a practicality to station wagons that makes the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo super-cool. But to many, the station wagon is a uniquely cool segment unto itself. And it is a segment that is dying. So you can add rarity to the features a station wagon exudes.
We’re not going to predict the future. What we will offer is that the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo takes on a uniquely compelling aura that we like. A lot. It doesn’t have to be a wagon or SUV or crossover. It just has to be what it is and that’s enough.
You could opt for a Volvo wagon, an Audi wagon, or this incredible Beast. If we had the 100 Gs you know where we would squander our shekels.
