Looks like my dreams of a tuned Taycan might not be happening.

Andreas Preuninger, the head of Porsche's GT division says that their focus will continue to be on combustion engines and not on EVs. According to Autocar he says electrification is "not something we think about at the moment."

“There are ideas to maybe look in that direction for the normal sports car line but not for the GT cars. If we would decide to make all the racing cars electrified overnight, then we would have a reason to look into that but, as always, it has to be a connection between the cars we use on the track to the cars we sell with a numberplate attached,” Preuninger said.

“Firstly, for homologation, but also we have to have the same DNA in the car and share the same platform, otherwise you lose credibility.”

He continued: “I think it’s very correct and the right thing to concentrate on three pillars [across Porsche] – hybrid, complete electric and hardcore, typical sports car. Ferry Porsche once said the last car on earth would be a sports car and I’m absolutely sure he’s right.”
It doesn't matter to me if it has the GT distinction or not, but I still hope a sportier Taycan will be offered by Porsche eventually.
