As we know battery technology is always improving. In particular I cannot wait that solid state batteries will be implemented on EVs. Does anybody know if Porsche will allow Taycan owners to upgrade the battery of their cars rather than forcing them to trade in their Taycan to get better batteries?

we need to wait a while to get all the info. My Porsche rep is frustrated with the lack of info share from Porsche GB for the US market. I am gonna venture a guess and at this moment say no to the future upgrade possibilities battery pack wise. From all I have read and the info shared with me through my rep, it looks like 2021 is when we one can expected more range out of the Porsche Taycan lineup.

Hope that Porsche will allow the battery replacement for the Taycan. It's a 200k car (with options) and it would be a pity not to allow the battery upgrade for the Taycan.

Asked the same question and no, the structure of the Taycan doesn’t allow fast Battery swiping like in a Tesla. Each block is independent and can be changed in case of issue (covered during 8 years) but upgrading is not directly foreseen. (again... as far as my agent knows) If new batteries are lighter, they would have to go through homologation process again anyway since it could create a risk for the car to be unbalanced. Only option would then be to keep same weight if you can upgrade...

But I would like same weight and more range!

A longer battery swiping time won't bother me. Any time I had vehicles in for service they always took care of me well enough to not think much about the process.

I reached out to Porsche. Feedback: No battery upgrade possible!
This might change in the future - but no commitment today.
