2024 Porsche Taycan shown in Frozen Blue Metallic ahead of its upgraded successor

The new Porsche Taycan has been introduced globally, and it’s scheduled to begin reaching U.S. dealerships in Summer 2024. Until then, the pre-facelift model will remain on sale. Recently, I saw the base 2024 Porsche Taycan in the cool Frozen Blue Metallic color. Here are my thoughts about this particular color and variant.

Looks & Features

I think the Frozen Blue Metallic, which costs USD 800 extra, gives the electric sportscar a distinctive appearance. While its not the exact same hue, it reminded me of the Gulf livery from motorsport history.

The 2024 Porsche Taycan features a low and wide front, with its headlamps and air curtains designed uniquely. It has a dynamic and sporty side profile with a narrow greenhouse, fast-sloping roofline, and muscular haunches, and a sleek rear-end with a full-width tail light that integrates the brand logo in a glass-look design. I don’t like the standard-fit 19-inch Taycan S Aero five-spoke wheels much, though.

The interior of the 2024 Porsche Taycan looks sporty and high-tech. The blocky and edgy dashboard is connected to an elevated center console, which gives me the feeling of being seated low, as I’d expect from a sports car. I think the interior would’ve looked better in a brighter color instead of Slate Grey seen here.

This Frozen Blue Metallic unit doesn’t have the available 10.9-inch passenger display. It does feature the 16.8-inch curved digital instrument cluster, the 10.9-inch infotainment display, and the 8.4-inch climate control display, though.

8-way power seats (front) are standard, and this car has the optional 40:20:40 split-folding back seat worth USD 480, which makes it a five-seater. An interesting optional feature on this unit is the 710-watt, 14-speaker Bose surround sound system, costing an additional USD 1,200.


The Frozen Blue Metallic 2024 Porsche Taycan I saw had only one motor, located on the rear axle and powered by a 71.0 kWh battery pack. Under normal conditions, the motor produces 321 hp and 254 lb.-ft. of torque. With overboost mode enabled and launch control engaged, the power temporarily increases to 402 hp. A 0-60 mph sprint takes just 5.1 seconds, and the top speed is 143 mph.

Fully charging the 71.0 kWh battery pack with a 9.6 kW AC charger takes 9.5 hours. Using a DC charger with a 225 kW or higher output, charging from 5 to 80% SoC takes 22.5 minutes. On a full charge, this car can travel up to only 208 miles, as per EPA.
