Porsche updates software and hardware for 2023 Taycan

Max McDee, 20 July 2022

Porsche Taycan came out only in 2020 and quickly became the company’s best seller, but so far it has remained its only all-electric offering. While Porsche is working hard on the all-electric Macan, the Taycan will receive its first major software upgrades. The technology progress is relentless and the manufacturers are learning that in order to keep selling they need to keep their products up to date.

Electric fleet of Porsche is going to grow over the coming years, apart from the new Macan that we now hear may be delayed to 2024, there are rumors of electric 911 being considered. There is a completely new SUV on the drawing board, which will be bigger than Cayenne and the Boxter - Cayman duo will get an electrified version by 2025.

Which one would you pick? Which one would you pick?

The 2023 Porsche Taycan will see mostly software changes and the updates will apply to cars already on the market, so it's good news all around. The updates will apply to three departments - infotainment, powertrain and thermal management. Let’s have a closer look.

The final updates will be applied to thermal management and will speed up battery preconditioning and will increase the temperature of the battery to allow for better charging performance at higher SoC.
