Planning a Road Trip Across Europe in a Porsche Taycan 4S? Read This First!

If you’re planning a road trip across Europe in your Porsche Taycan 4S, congratulations! You’re in for the ride of a lifetime. But before you set off on your grand adventure, you should know a few things.

One of our How-Many-Bags-Fit users, ‘D’ shared about how he recently completed a 500km road trip from Dublin, Ireland, to Athens, Greece. Here are the top 4 tips we took from what he shared regarding planning and going on the trip, including a bit on the Porsche Taycan luggage space.

Tip 1: Planning and Preparation are Key

Plan to travel along the scenic route and avoid boring routes

The first – and most important – thing to know about planning a road trip is that preparation is key. This is especially true if you’re driving an unfamiliar car. Before setting off on our trip, make sure to get a thorough understanding of the Porsche Taycan 4S features and capabilities. Read up on European driving laws and brushed up on your map skills, make sure you arrive ahead of time for your ferry crossings, plan to travel along the scenic route and avoid boring routes. By taking the time to plan and prepare beforehand, you are able to avoid any stressful surprises along the way.

Tip 2: Comfort is Key (for Both You and Your Passengers)

One of the best things about the Porsche Taycan 4S is its comfortable interior. D was able to fit his family of five snugly into the car, with plenty of room to spare. That said, there are a few things you can do to make the journey even more comfortable for everyone involved. First, bring along plenty of snacks and drinks for the drive. Secondly, take advantage of the Taycan’s built-in massaging seats (if your model comes with them)– they’ll come in handy during those long stretches behind the wheel. Finally, don’t forget to pack some pillows and blankets so everyone can catch some Zs when they need to. Trust us; they’ll be glad you did!

Tip 3: Luggage is No Problem (There’s Plenty of Space)

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to travel light just because you’re driving a sports car. The Porsche Taycan Luggage Space was plenty – and then some. D was able to fit everything they needed for the week-long trip into the trunk with ease.

  • D couldn’t ‘test’ the car with bags before the trip so he used to calculate what the boot could hold and to set the initial ‘policy’ for the trip.
  • The rear boot could easily fit five ‘overhead cabin bags’, plus three rucksacks and two smaller bags.
  • D found extra space for overflow items by lowering the rear seats when the boot was packed – this created more space between the wheels of cases for contingency purposes.

Tip 4: Porsche Navigation is Not Reliable – Use Other Apps Instead

While the Porsche Navigation system is certainly impressive, we found it to be less than reliable during our trip. More often than not, it led them astray instead of getting them where they needed to go. If you’re planning on using your phone’s GPS instead (which we highly recommend), be sure to download offline maps of your route before setting off – you don’t want to get stranded without service in the middle of nowhere! Google Maps and Waze are both great options that will get you where you need to go without any headaches.


A road trip across Europe is a fantastic experience – one that everyone should have at least once in their lifetime. And what better way to see everything this continent has to offer than behind the wheel of a luxurious Porsche Taycan 4S?

Just remember: planning and preparation are key for making sure your trip goes off without a hitch. Bon voyage!
