The newly revealed ultra-modern interior of the 2020 Porsche Taycan sports car is like no other you might have seen here on Naijauto or elsewhere. If you are the type that likes beautiful lights and display screens then, prepare to be swept off your feet as you read on!
A few days ago, Porsche released six teaser images of the 2020 Taycan’s cabin area ahead of its planned official debut in September this year.
The released images have left everyone in “awe” because of the “never-seen-before” cockpit that is so digitally intensive and totally ultra-modern. The overall “look-and-feel” really pushes the automaker’s interior design rating into a whole new 21st-century level.

It is quite impressive to see that despite the completely ultra-modern features, Porsche still maintained most of its design tradition in this new Taycan’s interior. Look closely, and you will see that the dashboard retained the traditional 2-element layout with an “upper wing” that is horizontally focused. It also maintained a narrow type of “lower wing” that has an upright face where you would usually find the transmission tunnel if it were to be a traditional gas-powered Porsche model.
In the collage image we have shared below, you can easily compare the dashboard of the gas-powered 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet to that of the all-electric new 2020 Porsche Taycan.
Can you spot some of Porsche’s typical design inside these 2020 Porsche car models?
We can strongly argue that no Porsche 911 sports car has ever had so many beautiful displays like this new Taycan. The massive 16.8-inches curved display screen at the top of the steering wheel column is like the crown jewel in the interior of this all-electric sports car. This huge display is also surrounded with some moderately sized buttons that are touch-capacitive and available for controlling the vehicle’s headlights, suspension firmness as well as for stability control.
Looking to the right side of the Taycan’s instrument cluster, you get a 10.9-inches touchscreen just where it is expected to be. But looking further to the right, you get to see yet another touchscreen where no one has ever seen such before – specially dedicated to the passenger sitting beside the driver. It's so pleasing to the eyes and when this new screen is switched off, it blends neatly into the dashboard like it was never there.

Porsche deserves some accolades for not joining the latest auto industry “craze” of adopting multiple table-style displays
Both of the displays featured inside the 2020 Porsche Taycan uses a type of operating system that is very distinct and different from all other infotainment systems you will normally find in every other Porsche car. Each of the displays comes with a cleaner and more customizable home screen but the 3-tile layout that shows on the passenger-side display of this 2020 Taycan arguably reminds people of the BMW’s current iDrive system though.
However, the passenger-side display still allows one to choose individual tiles which gives access to specific apps and enable one to arrange specific information in the centre and front – if you find the 3-tile setup too clumsy for you.

Coming down to the centre console area of the 2020 Taycan; we see a sort of “fourth” screen that spans 8.4-inches. This extra display shows an interface that can be used for climate controls while its lower portion serves as an extra haptic touchpad also. You can pretty much call it a Lexus trackpad setup’s idealized version that also includes fancy stuff like handwriting recognition as well. To crown it all, this lower screen is also designed to show the Taycan’s overall charge level whenever it’s plugged in and parked.
Coming to the more advanced features of the ultra-modern interior of this 2020 Porsche Taycan; we start with the new virtual assistant that understands any natural human command that you give once you begin with the phrase “Hey Porsche!”.

Moving further, we also realized that the 2020 Taycan comes with new “climate control” vents that are now electronically controlled and also paired with a modern Virtual Airflow Control (VAC) system. This amazing setup allows owners to select differently preset for the type of airflow they desire from the system and they are also able to independently adjust its electric shutters.
Even with all of the above features we have discussed, there is still one more 😊!
It is the 5.9-inch additional display located at the rear end of the Taycan’s interior which also serves an interface for managing the climate controls in the car.
Some other few things to note in this design overhaul includes a “Race-Tex” optional upholstery that is actually made from different recycled polyester fibres. It is also stated the floor carpets of the 2020 Porsche Taycan were made from recycled materials as well.
