If you’re in the market for a new Porsche Taycan, you’ll quickly discover the cheapest trim, the 4S, only begins at $103,800. No-one ever said Porsche’s first-ever EV was going to be affordable. However, Porsche wants to attract as many customers as possible, especially those considering a less expensive Tesla Model S.
According to UK’s Car Magazine, a less expensive Taycan will soon be joining the lineup, slotted below the 4S, Turbo, and Turbo S. “There will be entry-level models coming off the Taycan,” said Porsche R&D chief Dr. Michael Steiner. “There will be a rear-wheel-drive model with a smaller battery to make it more accessible price-wise, especially for markets that don’t need 4wd – places like China, where weather conditions mean you don’t need it.”
