I want the Sport Turismo. But so far, also in the above link, only the Cross Turismo is confirmed for production so far.
The Cross Turismo is just the concept model name of what will be the production Sport Turismo. :like:

Exactly my thoughts.
Just look at the simularities on my pics above.
Now let's hope they'll have rear view cameras as an option, looks like it will...

Look at the strange line around the mirror, looks like it serves a purpose but what?...

Looks like a place for a camera. That looks similar to what’s on my Tesla S

Today as Porsche spilled the beans on the electric Macan, they again confirmed the Cross Turismo. And no word on the Sport Turismo.

In Norway there are now 2700+ reservations for the Taycan (sedan) :D

Sounds like Porsche's transition to electric is going to quicker than predicted! I think this is a great signal that they're really satisfied and confident with how the Taycan's development has turned out.

Wonder if this means the next generation of all models (coming after the electric Macan) will go full electric?

In Norway from 2025 it’s only allowed to sell (new) zero tailpipe emission cars. Hydrogen has flopped. So here it’ll be fully electric very soon. Even today we have the highest rate of EVs in the world due to enormous tax incentives.

Already now 38% of new cars sold in Oslo are EVs.

I wonder how Norway's government is able to subsidize such "enormous tax incentives"... oh wait, that's right: they sell a lot of oil/petrol to other countries so these other places can pollute and generate carbon emissions :angel:
Of course, I still highly command Norway for taking such strong action to combat climate change with those high EV subsidies. I wish the rest of the world would follow suit, but the reality is the subsidies cannot be funded from thin air.
Ideally, vehicles that run on fossil fuels would be taxed heavily and EVs subsidized as heavily. Also: carbon tax, anyone?
The irony is that this would dwindle Norway’s revenues from selling oil abroad.. oh how complicated global economy can be.

Right you are. There’s also high road tolls, but free for EVs. Some free public charging, parking. Can drive in the bus lane.

Btw our biggest public oil company «Statoil» recently changed their name to «Equinor» and sold the gas stations to Circle K. So they’re preparing for renewable energy.

Interesting that Porsche is in fact calling it a Cross Turismo, not Sport, and it should come with a somewhat higher ride height.

Cool and good news, IMO.
