The Porsche Taycan was born five years ago as the Mission E concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show. That’s when Porsche signaled its intention to develop a new and different kind of performance car, one that would contain the soul of every Porsche ever built, exceptional handling and dynamics, and an electric motor. The Mission E would become the Taycan now offered in 4S, Turbo, and Turbo S models.
Electric powertrains offer numerous advantages when it comes to performance, and the Porsche Taycan exploits them all. The instant torque generated by an electric motor means blistering performance the instant slight pressure is applied to the right pedal, but that is only the beginning. Porsche has always been about efficient speed, and there’s no better example of efficient performance than the Porsche Taycan.
Capable of accelerating like an exotic car, the Taycan is also refined, luxurious, and perfectly tuned for daily driving duties. The Porsche Taycan 4S offered at $119,400 provides the most modern, advanced Porsche performance at an accessible price tag.

The Porsche Taycan 4S may be the entry-level Taycan model, it delivers range, quickness, and refinement like few other vehicles can, electric or not. A dual-motor setup places motors on both the front and rear axle, combining for 522 horsepower out of the gate and 563 horsepower with the optional Performance Battery. The base battery puts out 79.2 kWh while the optional battery ups the gross energy content to 93.4 kWh.
Range is rated at 325 kilometres with the standard battery and accelerating to 100 km/h requires only 4.0 seconds. Although not as brisk as the Taycan Turbo or Turbo S, the performance is still remarkable and the Taycan 4S can out-accelerate almost anything on the road. That said, it’s the way the power is delivered that sets the Taycan 4S apart. Capable of incredible accelerations, the Taycan 4S is always controlled, always poised. Controlling the power delivery is easy, and the car will always perform exactly how you want it to.
Inside, Porsche luxury at its finest awaits the driver. A 16.8-inch curved display is the infotainment heart of the Taycan 4S with digital controls used to access the electric vehicle’s functions. It’s smart just like the vehicle itself, and intuitive.
On the road, the Taycan 4S is stunning in its ability to marry comfort and luxury. Electric motors function silently and the driver and his or her passengers are surrounded by quality materials and expert craftsmanship. It’s the perfect environment to commute in, and a welcoming place to spend hours on the road.
