The 2022 Porsche Taycan Turbo is a brutally quick EV that is also luxurious and comfortable when you're not caning it. Even the base Turbo manages an impressive 670 hp and a 0-60 time of only three seconds. The more powerful Turbo S needs just 2.6 seconds to do the same thanks to 750 hp. Both models get an adaptive air suspension as standard but only the Turbo S comes with default rear-axle steering.
The base model comes with standard features like 20-inch alloy wheels, front/rear parking sensors, leather upholstery, front/rear heated seats, a 14-speaker Bose sound system, and a gorgeous 16.9-inch curved digital driver's display. On the Turbo S, the extras include larger 21-inch alloy wheels, 18-way power front seats, and carbon ceramic brakes. Both models can be upgraded with extras like adaptive cruise control, night vision, and numerous upholstery options.
The price for the new Porsche Taycan Turbo ensures that only the well-heeled need apply. The Taycan Turbo is the cheaper of the two models, starting at a base price of $150,900 in the US before a destination charge of $1,350. The Taycan Turbo S is considerably pricier, starting at $185,000. Fully loaded, that price jumps to over $240,000.
Numerous additions can be made to the Taycan Turbo sport sedan model and its more powerful Turbo S sibling.One of our favorite packages is the Premium package. This costs $7,310 in the USA on the base model Turbo and adds a fixed panoramic glass roof, a surround-view camera, a cabin ionizer, noise-insulated glass, lane change assist, ventilated front seats, a Bose surround-sound audio system, the Porsche Dynamic Light System, ambient lighting, a storage package, and power-folding mirrors. It's $4,570 on the Turbo S, which already has some of those features. A recent addition to most options lists in the Porsche lineup is the SportDesign package. This adds a unique body kit that enhances the aggression factor of the car that it's added to, and features unique design elements depending on the vehicle it is fitted to. On both the Taycan Turbo and Turbo S, this costs $5,660.
If you want to enhance the futuristic look of the vehicle, you can upgrade your PDLS+ adaptive headlights to feature Glacier Blue elements, with this option adding $580 to your base build price. A system that we'd certainly recommend considering is the Porsche InnoDrive equipment group, which adds adaptive cruise control and semi-autonomous driving for $3,610. There are various standalone options too, such as a head-up display at $1,850.
While up to 750 hp is certainly tempting, we doubt that anyone who experiences the acceleration of a regular Taycan Turbo with its maximum output of 670 horses would ever consider the vehicle slow. Thus, we'd opt for the lesser model and spend extra on advanced features like adaptive cruise control and perhaps a night vision camera. We'd also consider adding ventilated and massaging front seats, as well as the Premium package with its panoramic roof and lane change assist. With these features, you have a comfortable and efficient Taycan with plenty of power and a price below the Turbo S model's asking price of $185,000.
