Introduction

What Car? says...

Although there’s a steadily growing pool of excellent electric cars to choose from, naysayers will rightly point out that there’s always been one thing missing: a really great electric driver’s car. Yes, several of today’s crop can make you giddy with their Formula 1 car-rivalling acceleration, but point them down a twisty road and they'll leave you a little underwhelmed. Well, if any car can put that right, it’s the Porsche Taycan. 

It certainly seems to have all the right ingredients, including the lowest centre of gravity of the famous German brand’s line-up. And this isn’t some highly impractical supercar; it has rear doors, enough space for a couple of adults in the back, and a hatchback boot that can hold roughly the same amount of clobber as a Volkswagen Golf's.

As well as an entry-level version called the 4S, there's also a Turbo and Turbo S. But trust us, no matter which version you choose, there’s no petrol or diesel engine lurking under the bonnet – this is a car that runs purely on electricity. The cheaper 4S is the one to go for if your priority is a long range between charges, while both the Turbo and Turbo S get more power and extra standard kit. 

But which is the better buy? And is any version of the Taycan as good as the Tesla Model S? Over the next few pages, we’ll tell you all you need to know. Unsurprisingly, you won’t get a discount on the Taycan for quite some time, but we could potentially save you a small fortune on a variety of other electric carsJust visit our New Car Buying pages to find out more.
