How Much Does a 2021 Porsche Taycan Cost?

The 2021 Porsche Taycan comes in 4S, Turbo and Turbo S versions. Vehicle prices include a $1,350 destination charge. The Taycan 4S ($105,150) comes with staggered-width 19-in alloy wheels, adaptive air suspension with Smartlift, launch control, active aerodynamics, self-dimming rearview mirrors, heated side mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, LED headlights/daytime running lights/taillights, keyless entry/start, interior ambient lighting, dual-zone automatic climate control, partial leather upholstery, leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated/8-way power-adjustable front seats, 60/40 split/folding rear seats, eight airbags, front/rear cargo areas, forward collision warning, lane-keeping assistance, road sign recognition, front/rear parking sensors, universal garage door opener, curved 16.8-in driver information display, 10.9-in central infotainment display, four USB-C ports, Bluetooth, navigation, Porsche Connect (an app to check various parameters), Apple CarPlay smartphone integration, wireless charging, satellite radio, and a 10-speaker/150-watt audio system. This model only has metallic white or metallic black as standard, any other color is extra. Larger wheels are offered, in addition to full leather upholstery or a leather-free interior using Race-Tex, a simulated suede like Alcantara. It’s also eligible for a Performance Battery Plus upgrade. The Turbo ($152,250) has that upgraded battery and 670 hp, plus 20-in alloy wheels, Porsche Surface Coated Brakes, Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus, full leather upholstery, 14-way power-adjustable front seats with memory settings, heated rear seats, stainless steel pedals, and a 14-speaker/710-watt Bose surround-sound system. The Turbo S ($186,350) raises the energy levels to 750 hp, adding 21-in alloy wheels, rear-wheel steering, ceramic composite brake discs with yellow-painted/10-piston front calipers, rear fascia with carbon fiber inlays, 18-way adaptive front sport seats, Sport Chrono package, two-tone Race-Tex interior including the headliner and steering wheel, plus sill guards and interior accents in matte carbon fiber. Many of the upgrades and extra features in the Turbo S are available as options in the 4S and Turbo. The list is long and comprehensive. Some, like rear-wheel steering and ceramic composite brakes, veer toward the exotic. Others, like the glorious Burmester 21-speaker/1,455-watt 3D surround-sound system or a leather luggage set, are more traditional. It’s easy to drive the final price well above $200,000.

Is the 2021 Porsche Taycan a Safe Car?

All Taycan variants have the usual safety features, such as anti-lock brakes, airbags (eight) and a rearview camera. Warn and Brake Assist, Porsche’s forward collision warning system is also standard, along with lane-keeping assistance, front/rear parking sensors and road sign recognition. Options include a 360-degree camera system, adaptive cruise control, night vision and what Porsche calls Lane Change Assist, but we all know it better as blind spot monitoring. To date, the Taycan has not been crash tested by any agencies in the United States. But it has earned a maximum 5-star overall score from a European program.

2021 Porsche Taycan vs the competition

2021 Tesla Model S — The original all-electric luxury sedan and still going strong. Even the least expensive version (which is more affordable than the Taycan 4S) has a long range and Tesla offers high-end performance variants. 2021 Audi E-tron Sportback — An all-electric crossover with fastback that costs around $70,000 and covers 222 miles on a single charge. Interestingly, a Taycan-based E-tron GT is also in the pipeline. 2021 Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid — Not fully electric, but a gasoline/electric plug-in hybrid. And it’s a 677-hp Porsche. Roomier than the Taycan, it performs like a conventional luxury sport sedan.
