2020 Porsche Taycan Priced At $150,900 For the Turbo, $185,000 For the Turbo S

Immediately after launch, the Taycan received a price tag in the United States at $150,900 for the Turbo. It’s hard to swallow that Porsche markets the entry-level model as the Turbo despite the fact it doesn’t feature forced induction nor internal combustion, but then again, marketing works in mysterious ways.

As thus, let’s start with the Taycan Turbo. The entry-level version of the electric sedan for the 2020 model year promises 500 kW of “Overboost Power with Launch Control.” In other words, 671 horsepower or 680 PS and plenty of torque. Zero to 60 miles per hour takes three seconds flat, and charging with 9.6 kW takes 10.5 hours from zero to full. Using a 50-kW charging station translates to 93 minutes from five to 95 percent of the 93.4-kWh Performance Battery Plus.

The Taycan Turbo S levels up to $185,000 before destination charge and options, which is a lot of money if you remember that Tesla lurks in the background with the Model 3 Performance and Model S Performance. As the range-topping option, this fellow develops 560 kW (751 horsepower or 761 PS) with overboost for an acceleration of 2.6 seconds. Top speed is rated at 161 mph (259 km/h) while the quarter-mile run takes 11.1 seconds.

These being said, let’s run through a few other specifications from the U.S. configurator. The drag coefficient of 0.22 and curb weight of 5,132 pounds (2,328 kilograms) are two of the highlights for opposite reasons. The Taycan Turbo S has a drag coefficient of 0.25, which means the Tesla Model S Performance is more slippery at 0.23 Cd.

If you were wondering, the destination charge for the 2020 Porsche Taycan adds $1,350 to the tally. Special colors such as Carmine Red add $3,150 to the MSRP, and for some reason or another, the configurator forces you to specify two options before starting the configuration.

These are Mobile Charger Connect at $1,120 and the fixed panoramic roof in glass at $1,490. Just like any other Porsche, options could easily get the price of the Taycan to more than $200,000 with ease. Getting crazy with the configurator will get your build over $240,000.
