Usually, when you think of buying a Porsche, you think of having to save an awful amount of money if it means keeping your wits about yourself. But recently, they dropped the price-range from $103,000 to almost below $70,000, with incentives included.
In their first year, over 20,000 Porsche Taycans were sold. Recently, they arrived on American shores as electric options. They did away with the front motor and pivoted towards offering a 79.2 kilowatt battery as an option to use for electric vehicle purposes. Isn’t that nice of Porsche? I certainly think that is.
Before state or local incentives kick in, the car itself is likely to cost around $73,840. Another thing to take into account is the savings you’ll have from going to electric over gas.
What Are Some Of The Specs of this Porsche?
The battery itself can produce up to 402 horsepower on 300 kilowatts while the torque is 254 pound-feet from the very original Taycan single rear motor. Combo it with the Performance Battery Plus, totally optional by the way, and it can go even further faster. This is with 469 horsepower and 263 lb-ft. of torque. No matter what the battery config. is, the Porsche can still go from zero-to-sixty in only 5.1 seconds. It also has a top track speed of 143 mph.
The charging rate for the newest version of the Porsche Taycan will charge up to 270 kilowatts. The smaller option can only charge at about 225 kilowatts actually. Near 50 kilowatt stations, all you need is a significant 93 minutes capable of making the gap a lot shorter. Or you could just use the home charger for about 10 hours at 9.6 kilowatts.
Often as automakers do, Porsche says the Taycan will have an upgrade whenever that’s a higher likelihood in the future. The dash itself even comes with Porsche Active Suspension Management. Isn’t this sounding like a cool car already?
