Porsche is planning to offer the Taycan in three different trim levels. It is believed that the companies first performance EV will be priced similarly to that of the Cayenne and Panamera. If this is true than we should see a launch price of around £60,000 in the UK for the base model when sales start next year.

Reports are a bit all over the place in regards to the Taycans pricing, but most of the numbers I'm seeing hover around $85,000. You can bet there is going to be a fairly large margin between the base and top spec model.

Last I checked the most ideal pricing range that was supported by a nugget some Porsche exec dropped placed it around the $50,000-60,000 USD mark to start.

By that source, it can't start more than the base Cayenne.

Are we assuming that a entry level Taycan at that price is going to have a lot less range/hp than the 300 miles/ 600hp we've seen suggested? The long range model 3 at that price provides 300km and 258hp.

Ultimately that would position Porsche to be competitive and I think it's worth even taking a hit on each model till Porsche EV sales build more momentum.
Porsche can play the long term game and benefit big time.

EV's can be highly profitable, especially in top spec guise. And its been estimated that future electrics will actually be cheaper than ICE's to produce as they have far less moving parts and a more simplified platform.

We are probably still quite a few years away from seeing that happen. But the adoption rates of electrics do seem to be growing with each newly introduced model. Everything will change when an automaker breaks that $30k bracket.

Hyundai Kona Electric is $36k and under $30k after the tax credit. 250+miles of range and has DC fast charging. Could be a hit.
Good for them but unless Genesis gets something and sporty, no one on this board cares. At best our Taycan's will start at double that.

Pricing is a little bit more aggressive than I was hoping. I agree it doesn't make a whole lot of sense for the top end variant to still use the Turbo trim.

What I’ve been told by Manhattan Motor car is starting around 85k and going to 150k for a turbo with options. I was also told that all cars will be all wheel drive. Again, just relaying what I heard from my dealership.
