Debating between new Taycan vs 4S. My first Porsche and EV. Commute 30 miles to work one way. Test drove 4S like the ride and dynamic build of porsche vs TESLA S. If I am getting Taycan will definitely go for performance plus. Thanks

Don’t forget though that bigger battery increases hp

I just configured a base Taycan exactly as my Taycan 4S is configured. Final price was $21,000 less. You have to decide if the roughly 1 second faster 0-60 time is worth an additional $21g to you. Personally, having driven my 4S now for 2 months and absolutely loving it, I am sure I'd feel the same way if I had a similarly specced base model. I do sometimes, albeit rarely, wonder if I should have gone turbo though.

IMHO ist the AWD vs RWD more "important" than 1.x second difference from 0-60.

Had similar ideas last year but wanted to be prepared for the 4WD winter conditions, thus had ordered and received the 4S. Lucky me as we haven't had that much snow for more than 5 years at least... Under less harsh climate conditions, RWD is a great option for sure.
