Fully-Loaded 2020 Porsche Taycan 4S Is Crazy Expensive

/ Comments

Should you load up a Taycan 4S with options or buy a Turbo S instead?

It's all very well lusting after the top tier of the Porsche Taycan, but the Turbo trim starts at $150,900 and the Turbo S at $185,000. Sure, you're going to get some stunning base-level performance, but once you start adding things like the performance package, which doesn't even get you a brake upgrade, some driver-assist features and some fancy interior additions, a Turbo S has gone over the $200,000 mark.

It's not like the 4S is slow either. It'll pop 60 mph in under 4 seconds and with a $103,800 starting price, you can option it exactly how you want before popping over the $200,000 mark.

We know this because we optioned the 4S out with everything Porsche has to offer, including painted keys ($540), personalized carbon fiber door sill guards ($4,060), a set of Porsche's leather luggage ($6,323) and the owner's manual wallet in Leather ($560). If you so desire, you could load a 4S up with $85,880 of equipment and sundries and drive it away for a total of $199,468.

For that, you would also get the Performance Package, a $6,430 option that includes Porsche Electric Sport Sound, Rear Axle Steering, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport, Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus, and Sport Chrono Package. Add another $9,970 for the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes to get the performance fully rounded out.

From there, you can go nuts while someone else with a $200,000 budget is riding around in a relatively bare-bones Taycan Turbo S. To top out the price, we also added 21" Taycan Exclusive Design Wheels with Carbon Fiber Aeroblades for $8,770, Carmine Red paint for $3,150, Olea Club Leather Interior in Basalt Black/ Atacama Beige for $7,140, and because all that extra Turbo S power doesn't do you any good in traffic, we also went for the massage seat function for $2,000. Porsche's top-level adaptive cruise control is also $3,610 well spent.

Alternatively, you could, of course, add some choice features to the 4S and then buy a whole other car, perhaps a base model Cayman for $59,900. Or even a Tesla Model 3 Performance for $55,990 to knock around in when you want to keep a low profile.
