Porsche has revealed initial images of the upcoming Taycan’s sleek and innovative interior. The auto manufacturer’s first all electric production vehicle has been generating interest since it announced its plans to take on Tesla under its “Mission E” project, followed by a waitlist back in 2018. Since then, Porsche has shared that the new model will come integrated with Apple Music and include three years of free charging.

While the Taycan is being heavily compared to Tesla, the interior suggest it’s far from it. The cabin includes multiple interfaces as opposed to one large screen, and borrows inspiration from the original 911 in 1963, including its familiar wide dashboard and minimal instrument panel. “The Taycan interior combines design elements typical for the brand with a new type of user experience, and impresses with its simple elegance,” stated Ivo van Hulten, Director Interior Design Style Porsche at Porsche AG.

The vehicle incorporates a curved 16.8-inch screen as its digital instrument panel, configurable with four different modes: classic, map, full map with navigation and “pure” with essential driving information. The dashboard also includes a 10.9-inch infotainment screen while the center console has 8.4-inch touch pad for controlling climate settings.

The Taycan also offers renewable material options where people can choose between its classic leather, sustainably tanned Club Leather “OLEA” and even leather-free interior made with recycled polyester fibers. Porsche will be revealing the electric vehicle to the public in September 2019.

In related news, a 1939 Porsche Type 64 was mistakenly sold for $70 million USD at a recent Sotheby’s auction.
