If you absolutely can't wait for the less-pricey versions promised to come in the near future, we suggest going with the Turbo. You can add just about anything extra that comes on the Turbo S. Moreover, even with the Turbo S, you have to pay extra for driver-assist features like adaptive cruise control and lane-change assist. Find a Porsche Taycan for sale
Although Porsche tells us that more affordable versions are on the way, the Taycan begins life with only its two premium grades: the Turbo and the Turbo S. Both offer a load of options. Pricing includes the $1,350 factory delivery fee.
The Turbo ($154,860) comes equipped with 20-in wheels, adaptive air suspension, white-painted brake calipers, launch control, torque vectoring, active air-intake flaps, adaptive rear spoiler, auto-dimming interior and exterior rearview mirrors, heated exterior mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, LED headlights and daytime running lights, interior ambient lighting, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather seating for four, 14-way power-adjustable front seats, 60/40 rear-seat folding backrest, heated front and rear seats, eight airbags, front and rear trunks, Warn and Brake Assist, lane-keeping assist, traffic sign recognition, front and rear parking assist, leather-wrapped steering wheel, stainless steel pedals, 16.8-in touchscreen, four USB-C ports, Bluetooth connectivity and interface, online navigation, Porsche Connect with Apple CarPlay and a 14-speaker Bose surround-sound audio system with satellite radio capability.
In place of or enhancement to the Turbo features, the Turbo S ($188,960) provides retuned electric motors for additional hp, 21-in wheels, ceramic composite brakes, 10-piston front calipers, yellow-painted brake calipers, rear fascia with carbon-fiber inlays, 18-way adaptive sport seats, two-tone Race-Tex interior including a headliner and steering wheel, and matte carbon fiber door sill guards and interior accents.
Many of the Turbo S upgrades and extra features are offered as options on the Turbo. The list of options and option packages is long and comprehensive. Some, like rear-wheel steering, are exotic. Others are more traditional. It's pretty easy to drive the final price well above $200,000.

Breathing the same rarefied air as the Tesla S, there really aren't any other direct EV competitors.
2020 Tesla S -- The one that started it all, combining a fully electric plug-in system with an extremely long range and high-end performance. It offers a wider range and more affordable versions than Taycan.
2020 Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid -- No, it isn't a fully electric plug-in, but it is a gas/electric hybrid. And, it's a Porsche. Roomier than the Taycan, it performs much like a traditional luxury sport sedan.
