Although few specs and insight on the Taycan's interior has been revealed or all but confirmed, we can look to Porsche's current line up for our answers. Since I don't expect significant improvements to current Audio systems offered, the below options available on the new Panamera act as a good base for building our expectations. The options are very binary and I thought it would be interesting to see where Porsche enthusiast like myself stand.

As an audiophile the Burmester setup is what i'll get, although I haven't tested them out for myself in person, on paper the differences in hardware is a dead giveaway.

Isn't Burmester the same system that Mercedes uses? I'm a bit more familiar with Bose products but the difference in wattage between these two systems is night and day.

You are correct. I'm curious what the premium is going to be for the Burmester system because I know it can be a couple grand in MB cars.

Bose just does well with marketing as a whole regardless with which type of customer they target from what I noticed. Rarely will they get reviewed well by audiophiles.

So many different automakers offer Bose stereo systems nowadays. Don't get me wrong for the most part they are usually decent, but far from what I would call premium. Just paying extra for a brand name.

Tried out the Burmester Sound System in my friends E450 and it sounds better than a C Class I rented. Going to try it in an S-Class this weekend.

For my headphones I go with Bose but for my car I'm going with Burmester. Here's a couple of videos that show the difference of how each one sounds.

The Taycan Bose is the best Bose I've heard in a car. However, if you really want an audiophile experience in one of the quietest cars out there, get the Burmester. It is head and shoulders above anything else IF you play FLAC or equivalent lossless music via the usb port.

I’ve had both in my 911’s so I’m aware that Burmester is excellent. However I do not listen at high volume and it’s not worth several thousand over Bose to me. For those of you that like it loud you will definitely prefer Burmester.
