As we said the 4S was released on the 14th October, looks like a good price point.

in terms of "Regular S" model then I’m still hearing it will be towards the end of the year but more than likely into q1 now.

Porsche’s strategy is to ship the higher value models first with the largest margin and then introduce the cheaper variants.

It’s a great tactic to pre launch with a figure of around £80k, then release an expensive variant, drum up of interest and then release a cheaper model to satisfy that demand.

Purely speculation but I would expect a 0-60 of sub 5 seconds (possibly 4.6-4.8) and a slightly cheaper price point to the 4S by around £10k / $14k

I think you will see a Taycan GT with over 1000HK in the future

Yeah, maybe a GT3 or GT3 RS version

But what I'd really like to see is Porsche developing some form of lightweight battery pack for weight reduction, just so handling becomes even better

I think the Taycan with the small battery will have 330hk and boost to 430hk and the Taycan with the bigger battery 380hk and boost to 480hk..
And the range will be the longest in the Taycan line 550km wtlp with the bigger battery.

My dealer was telling that a Taycan 4 will be announced by end of year. Given how Panamera 4 versus 4S differs, I'm guessing the back motor in the Taycan 4 is even smaller than the one in Taycan 4S and will come with less standard options.

Here is my quess:
380hk/490hk Performance plus battery (best range of any taycan)
325hk/435hk performance battery

In fact if you look at Tesla they disbanded 2 wheel drive for all 4 wheel drive on the S because they could get better range from two different seize and geared motors than they could from a singe motor..... And their long range model 3 is not the single motor version but rather the dual motor version...……...

Porsche may very well upgrade the rear motor back to the turbo and remove the front motor.


This would result in a 2 wheel rear drive variant but without loosing too much power from the 4s.
