    2020 Taycan U.S. Pricing For Turbo and Turbo S

    The Taycan S will be priced base between $108 and $120k in the US. Period. Add on basically required software + charging options for another 3 to 5k. Tires for 2 to 6k. Then get into the actual options. You're not getting a basically spec'd Taycan S for less than $125k.

    If you think Tesla is anything but the undisputed expert in EVs, please don't buy an EV. I would never buy a Tesla as I agree that Teslas are not very good vehicles and I really just don't like Tesla. But they are worlds ahead of Porsche in EVs and Porsche is only making an EV because of Tesla...

    Taycan folding rear seats (folded down)

    At least they got this right! Storage space is still ridiculously bad compared to anything else that size but fine for city use.

    2020 Porsche Taycan: Official Specs, Info, Wallpapers, Videos

    No one cares that the range numbers are over 100 miles worse than a Model S? And that the charging tech is suddenly much less impressive than originally announced? Am I alone in thinking Porsche utterly missed the mark? Also everyone realizes the Taycan is a big, heavy car with brake-by-wire...

    Taycan at Auto Shows/Events?

    It's almost exactly the same size as a Panamera. 2 or 3 inches shorter (height and length) but otherwise almost identical. Another reference is a model S. It's basically the exact same size as a model S but 2.5 inches shorter (height). Aka.. it's a big car. I haven't seen official dates...

    "In ideal situations." There's a reason Porsche is suddenly highlighting the 0-60 times instead of range & charging. I think people are going to be shocked when real-world range/charging numbers come out. Based on the tech it'll be closer to an iPace than anything. Everyone realizes the WLTP...

    But you also get the pleasure of (test) driving an EV with two gears! Technology that the undisputed expert in EVs deemed too unreliable! What could POSSIBLY go wrong? It's not like you can get better 0-60 acceleration, 100 more miles of range, and an actual charging network for 50k+ less...

    I've always liked grey-blues and the Frozen Blue seems really nice. But I'd have to see it in person, I'm guessing it's more gray (which is good) as the configurator tends to show things brighter than they are. Otherwise they really shit the bed with the colors. You're basically stuck with...

    2020 Taycan U.S. Pricing For Turbo and Turbo S

    The 911 4S, the relevant S to the Turbo line, starts at $112k+. Also requires more options than a Turbo, which closes the gap further. The pricing is almost exactly the same for a Taycan and 911 4. The Taycan S will start $110k base plus and add 3k alone to get reasonable tires.

    Porsche Taycan World Reveal. Watch Live Feed and React Here

    Am I missing something? Those prices put the S at $110k+ base and the range estimates are closer to an iPace than remotely close to a Tesla. I get optimistic marketing but weren't we promised a car at reasonable (for Porsche) pricing and Tesla-esque range?

    2020 Taycan U.S. Pricing For Turbo and Turbo S

    Insane. That puts the S $110k+ base. For a car with sub 250 mile range. Brutal.

    Taycan real world Range

    Battery concern is my big issue right now and, frankly, something I now expect to be a glaring weakness of the Taycan. Look at the E tron. Sub 200 mile real world range using the same tech. Jaguar also struggled with their iPace. Porsche came out strong claiming their main focus was on...

    Automobile Mag Taycan review: The Porsche Taycan Turbo Redefines Speed and Acceleration

    The problem with charging at home is if, like me, people want a fun to drive car to actually drive decent distances you have to stop and charge at some point. Current info looks less than rosy on the Taycans ability to drive like a Porsche for more than short trips. The reality is the 2019...

    Automobile Mag Taycan review: The Porsche Taycan Turbo Redefines Speed and Acceleration

    I think the issue isn't just the price but the overall package. "We're going to roll out a large charging network with 15 minute to near full charging!" "Amazing range and efficiency!" "Price starts between Cayenne and Panamera!" As of most current information none of those things are true...

    Towing

    You're looking at a very very small range when towing based on the current battery specs, well under 200 miles and likely under 150. Just keep that in mind.

    Automobile Mag Taycan review: The Porsche Taycan Turbo Redefines Speed and Acceleration

    If this pricing is correct, count me out on a launch year car and potentially ever. With just basic options you're looking at $120k for the lowest trim worth buying. For your money you get a first generation EV with a currently non existent charging network. Oh, by the way, within two years...

    Trunk size

    Uh. The Taycan is the same size as the concept... so... And the Turismo just adds an extended roof and hatchback, no extra space beyond that. Same as the Panamera, just in a smaller car.

    Trunk size

    I would say there's exactly a zero percent chance the Taycan will be anywhere near ideal for your needs. It's strictly smaller than a Panamera, so the trunk will also be smaller.

    Automobile Mag drove the Taycan Turismo: Gets 3.1s 0-62 mph

    This was still a 2017 prototype so I'd wager the Turismo will be a little lighter and the sedan a little lighter than that. But the Panamera Turismo is barely heavier than normal so I think around 4600 pounds is the target. Keep in mind the ridiculous center of gravity will make that feel a lot...

    https://www.automobilemag.com/news/audi-e-tron-vs-porsche-taycan-cross-turismo-vs-mercedes-benz-eqc-luxury-ev-suvs/ 3.1 0-62 mph and 4,750 pound weight. Still a prototype. Fantastic numbers and generally looking super positive from the article. Dispels the notion of a slow 60 time and the...
