There is quite a bit of fake information about the Taycan vs. the Model S by various Porsche fanboys. It’s a good EV although expensive. I compiled all the details, from pricing, feature differences, and more:
Two things stand out, that I wasn’t fully aware of. First Porsche has so many options that allow dramatic customization for custom orders. Cars on the lot are pre-configured, so the real choices are far less.
Second, it takes a lot of options to match up to what Tesla provides as standard. In the case of the Taycan 4S, you must order $29,719 worth of options. That ignores the extra $6580 needed for the larger battery, which is still smaller than the Model S 100 kWh pack. The Taycan Turbo S includes the larger battery and a few additional options, so the extra options needed to compete with the P100D is only $16,620.
Anyway, I’ve tried to be fair, and point out the features that are unique to each car without commentary. I expect a few Porsche fanboys will post the typical lies, like how 800v charging is faster than Tesla's 250 kW Superchargers (it isn't), but hopefully, I and others will respond if they show up. It really isn't necessary to make up stuff, as the Taycan is a reasonable EV for Porsche's first outing and could be right for the typical Porsche buyer.
