While Porsche has remained tight-lipped about the pricing of the Taycan, there are some new reports of how it will be set. Expect to see something very similar to the hierarchy found on Tesla’s Model S and Model X.

The base model will reportedly start in the low $90,000, the 4S will reach up to $100,000 and the top end Turbo will be set above $130,000 before options. With this new information coming to light, any hopes that the base model would be less expensive than the Panamera, are now gone.

With no official announcement from Porsche, these figures may not be completely accurate, but they are the most realistic numbers that we have seen. Will a bracket that's so close to what’s seen from Tesla be enough to pry customers away? With some of the build quality and performance issues that continue to plague even their newest models, we think so.

There is going to be a night and day difference in the quality of Porsche's EV's when compared to that of Tesla. With the amount of pre orders the Taycan has already however, getting one for launch may be difficult if you haven't already placed a reservation.

I don't think there is going to be a single new EV from the premium brands that doesn't sell out in its first year. Keep in mind that the specs we are seeing here, are similar to that of the GT models but for a fraction of the cost.

Suggesting that the next generation GT/RS models are only going to even more impressive. Odds are they are going to break the $300k bracket.

I agree, there will be a mad rush to get these out, along with overwhelming demand and challenges to keep up.
That being the case, automakers with hybrid programs in full effect now will benefit from anyone impatient.

Everyone is moving towards more modular architecture to try and streamline the production process. I think there is a good chance we will see partnerships between brands, as they look to cut costs by sharing resources/components.

Ruf is on my list. If we can get a carbon monocoque Taycan it would be game changer but very hard on your wallet. 911 Ruf's already aren't cheap

The new 992 has already gone with a full aluminum body to try and cut weight and its still heavier than the 911 with all the added electronics. There is only so much that can be done with EV's until someone develops next generation solid state or liquid batteries.

I sure hope Porsche can engineer and price the Taycan to be price/performance competitive with the Panamera. The Jaguar iPace costs $12K more than a similarly configured F Pace S and the Audi e-tron 55 is a almost $16,000 more than a comparable SQ5. Those are huge EV premiums.
