Here it is, your very first look at the interior of the new Porsche Taycan.

The photo comes as Porsche has announced a partnership with Apple, that will see the Taycan become the first production car to come equipped with Apple Music.

This will give owners access to 50 million songs and curated playlists - commercial free.

What the image shows us is the extremely widescreen that runs from the center of the car to the far right. There's also a digital gauge cluster that shows drive settings that include: Individual, Range (presumably to maximize range), Normal, Sport and what we presume to be Sport Plus (because the steering wheel itself blocks the view).

If you have any questions about the Taycan, we're at a workshop on August 21st and can put your questions to the folks at Porsche. Add your questions to our thread here:

Plus, stay tuned for the debut on Sept 4th!!!

Porsche has teamed up with Apple Music to create the first fully integrated music streaming experience inside the much-anticipated Porsche Taycan, the first fully electric Porsche vehicle launching in September.

From the touchscreen display in the Porsche Advanced Cockpit, Apple Music subscribers can stream over 50 million songs ad-free, thousands of curated playlists, and the Beats 1 global livestream with three-year complimentary in-car internet data. This is the first-ever full integration of Apple Music in any vehicle.

“Porsche and Apple Music fit perfectly – we share common values, and the same relentless attitude to user experience, to quality engineering, to design, and to innovation,” says Detlev von Platen, Member of the Executive Board for Sales and Marketing at Porsche AG. “Together, we bring innovative digital entertainment technologies in our high-performance sports cars, starting with our fully electric Taycan.”

"Listening to music while driving can be an electrifying feeling," said Oliver Schusser, Vice President of Apple Music and International Content. “Since Apple Music launched, we’ve been working to bring our customers the best music experience possible in the car, and Porsche has been on the cutting edge in this space. Porsche builds sports cars at the highest level and today, with the introduction of the Taycan, customers now can choose Apple Music built-in seamlessly to find the perfect soundtrack for every drive.”

Taycan in-car experience

Drivers can also enjoy the following features and benefits in the Taycan due to the unique collaboration between Porsche and Apple Music:

  • Porsche Voice Assistant: Use custom Porsche voice control to request songs, albums, playlists, or radio stations on Apple Music.
  • Discover on Broadcast Radio, Listen on Apple Music: Create your own custom station on Apple Music from any song you find while listening to broadcast radio.
  • Exclusive Playlists: Listen to curated playlists from Porsche, only on Apple Music.
  • In-Car Streaming Data: Complimentary in-car internet data for 3 years with external antenna and roaming package.
  • Up to Six Months Included: New and existing Porsche owners get up to 6 months free of Apple Music.
For music lovers with a fine ear, Taycan drivers can pair a Burmester High-End Surround Sound System with Apple Digital Masters and enjoy studio-quality sound for an unparalleled listening experience in every journey. Apple Digital Masters delivers music as artists and sound engineers intend it to be heard.

Taycan also comes with Apple CarPlay support. Drivers can easily connect their iPhone and get directions optimized for traffic, make calls, send and receive messages, and listen to Apple Music by simply tapping the Taycan touchscreen display or with Siri voice control, all while staying focused on the road.

Great move for Porsche, you'd think Tesla would become the first to get Apple integration like this but no. If Porsche can master the cabin tech side to the Taycan and if the Taycan's performance is as consistent as they say, then this will put Tesla in a VERY tough spot.

Turbo and Turbo S being Porsche's two highest-performance trim levels, the Taycan won't be able to touch the Tesla Model S' range out of the gate. The less powerful Turbo is rated at 237 to 280 miles of range on the generous WLTP test cycle, so expect more like 200 to 240 miles on the more stringent EPA test cycle. The Turbo S is rated at 241 to 256 miles on WLTP, so guess 200 to 215 miles EPA.
