Which of these new colors is your favorite?
The Porsche Taycan has only been on sale since the 2020 model year, so we weren't expecting the 2021 version to get any significant changes. How wrong we were. A member of the Porsche Taycan forum discovered that the 2021 Porsche Taycan configurator is already live in Hong Kong, revealing new options that will be available for the 2021 Taycan when it goes on sale later this year.
One of the main changes is that the 150kWh DC upgrade is no longer available for the 2021 Porsche Taycan. This could mean it will be offered as standard for the 2021 model, but the list of standard equipment is currently unavailable on the configurator.
The selection of exterior colors has also increased from ten for the 2020 model to 16 for the 2021 model. New exterior finishes will include Neptune Blue, Cherry Metallic, Frozenberry Metallic, Coffee Beige Metallic, Mohagony Metallic, Ice Grey Metallic, and a new special Crayon color, which all look very slick.
Ice Grey Metallic, Neptune Blue, and Crayon will cost an extra 22,800 Hong Kong Dollar ($2,941 USD), but the other new colors are available with no extra charge. New interior color options have also been added, including Bramble Leather, Graphite Blue/Slate Grey, and Basalt Black/Meranti Brown two-tone leather.
In addition to these new colors, Porsche already offers an extensive selection of customization options for the Taycan. If you want more personalization, Porsche's Exclusive Manufaktur customization division offers 90 exclusive finishes and 600 different order options.
While the Taycan's color options will be expanded for the 2021 model year, don't expect the powertrain options to change. Starting at $103,800, the entry-level Taycan 4S uses a dual motor setup that produces up to 563 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque, enabling the electric sports car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds. This output increases to 670 hp and 626 lb-ft of torque and 750 hp and 774 lb-ft in the Taycan Turbo and Turbo S, respectively.
