Porsche’s most important car in years has made its debut, and the 2020 Taycan is arguably a 21st century flagship for the automaker. All-electric, with all-wheel drive and striking new looks, the Taycan promises some of the most power from any car in Porsche’s line-up.
Porsche is starting out with its most potent iterations of the Taycan. The 2020 Taycan Turbo offers up to 670 horsepower and a 0-60 mph time of 3.0 seconds, while the 2020 Taycan Turbo S clocks in at 750 horsepower and a 0-60 mph time of 2.6 seconds. Porsche isn’t giving EPA range figures for the US yet, but on the European WLTP cycle you’re looking at up to 280 miles from the Taycan Turbo and 256 miles from the Turbo S.
What the 2020 Taycan Turbo and Turbo S won’t be is cheap. The former will start at $150,900, while the latter will be $185,000. Porsche says that we can expect lower-power versions of the cars later in the year, with the expectation that they’ll also be more affordable too.
