A video of what is likely the new Porsche Taycan interior has released and while it's only an 18 second video there's a lot we can see regarding the infotainment system.

As the system starts to turn on you can see a small display bar turn on above the main screen, with information like "multimedia," the temperature, "comfort" (most likely the driving mode), and "home," with an arrow beside it like you'd find on your Google maps phone app. The video doesn't show whether this display is a touchscreen or if it could be customized, but at the very least it looks like it will give you some basic information when you're driving.

There is also an odd looking gear shifter that appears to be a raised touchscreen you can swipe through with your finger. The shifter changes color depending on what gear you're in, blue is park, grey is neutral, red is reverse, and green is drive.


When the main interface turns on it is divided into different sections. While it's hard to see clearly, on the top you get the navigation system. Below the navigation you see an "Autopilot" feature, which could be similar to Tesla's feature but we don't know for sure. It’s hard to tell from the video, but the "Autopilot" could be related to automatic parking.

When the driver swipes into reverse, the screen changes and the lines appear for a backup camera in between two digital vehicles (other Taycans?). It looks like the Taycan starts to move and you can hear the beeping sound from the parking sensors as it inches closer. The driver swipes into drive and the screen turns back to normal and the Taycan moves forward.



Another interesting part of the video is that it briefly shows us the digital instrument cluster, including the speedometer, driving mode, temperature, and time.

I already like how much more refined the layout and overall looks is compared to anything else out at the moment. Even the new Tesla roadster isn't as nice!

It really is a sleek interior design! If the finished product comes anywhere close to this it's going to be huge win for Porsche. I wish that there was a closer look on the gear shifter, that's the coolest part of the video for me.

I wonder if the gear shift touch pod has a fail safe to it where it does not change direction while driving 75 mph down the highway when one accidentally brushes their fingers across the pod? :)
P.S. - Unlike other countries Americans love to eat full course meals and drink “Big Gulps” when driving. I see no cup holders in the video.....we’re all gonna die!!! :)

There would definitely have to be something in place that turns off the shifter's touch pad when the Taycan is driving. As for the cup holder, Porsche will probably squeeze a couple of them in somewhere, I don't think they'll be "Big Gulp" size, but sacrifices must be made. :smile_big:

That shifter seems way too gimmicky for my taste. I want to know what happens if, for whatever reason, the touchscreens stop being responsive and you can't switch gears. Aside from that I really like the bold look Porsche is trying to achieve here!

I actually like it and think it suits the whole electric vehicle theme. Just be happy its something very simple you don't like and not a complex, hard to change part.
