The Porsche Taycan provides the performance, style and build precision that you’d expect from the marque. The Taycan may well be an electric car, but first and foremost it feels every bit a true Porsche.
The Taycan 4S is forceful for an entry-level model. With the standard Performance Battery, the 4S makes 522 hp. Stepping up to the Performance Battery Plus increases that output to 563 hp. All 4S models hit 60 mph in 3.8 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph. Edmunds has driven the 4S with the Performance Battery Plus, and it does not want for performance. With instantaneous torque on demand, coupled with the traction of all-wheel drive, it feels every bit a supercar. Indeed, its performance is such that we’d seriously question the need to upgrade to the Turbo models
