Just checked configurator

And yes, you can spec it with better rims. You can even spec it with Mission E style wheels

So the only reason to order a Turbo or Turbo S is if you really want to show off. The 4S is much better bang for the buck. You still get "oh shit" speed, better handling due to lower weight, and higher range.

I'm willing to bet the 7 grand is well spent upgrading the battery, though. So the 4S "Performance" model seems, by far, the most logical option.

Agree so far. Details matter, but hard to see why you would buy the Turbo or Turbo S.

I think a lot of it depends on what kind of cars you're used to, how much money you have to spare for a new car, how much you want to show off etc. I do understand why someone wants a Turbo, or the Turbo S. For me personally the 4S with the large battery makes by far the most sense. It's still faster than any car I've owned so far, has the best range of all the Taycan's (note that if you upgrade to larger tires, this might not be the case, as the smaller tires help with range) and it's 40k€ cheaper than the Turbo.

I've now configured both the Turbo and the 4S Performance with all the extras I really want and the Turbo would be 180k€ & the 4S is 140k€ total. That is, for me at least, a relevant difference. Currently 90% sure I'm going to order the 4S, will meet the person from the local dealership very soon.

My thoughts exactly. Plus a few options and i will be good.
hopefully i can get out under 125k

some people might say if you’re buying Porsche for “bang for your buck” you’re doing life wrong ...
Some people also buy Ferraris and I don’t understand that ...

Ferraris, I sort of get. Maseratis, however, defy logic. I feel like Maserati is an Italian term for an intimate and expensive relationship with a mechanic. But to each their own. I just can’t wait for the 4S configurator to go live in the US.

I mean, it's possible that people order the Turbo S instead of the Turbo because of lower ride height (I've been told, and really hope, that it's possible to get the same effect for the Turbo)

But the 4S is the same height as the Turbo S, so if you spec it with Mission E wheels, you could have a better-handling, if slightly lower powered, cracking little vehicle which you can spec to look (mostly) like a Turbo S

And as a bonus the 4S has a 1.4 cubic foot bigger boot (trunk) because of the smaller rear electric motor.

You can try the UK configurator, I saw the 4S earlier on the UK configurator
I think it will be difficult to extrapolate from the non-US sites. The configuration for Turbo US cars includes a Premium package, whereas the EU has only individual options that have to be selected one by one. Will have to wait this one out. My guess is that a decent optioned 4S will be north of 130k.
