2020 Porsche Taycan 4S is a heck of a value

With a starting price just over $100,000 and plenty of performance, it's a big savings over the Turbo and Turbo S variants.

Whether or not you're comparing it to other well-equipped EVs like the Tesla Model S, the Taycan's initial price announcement was certainly an eye-opener.

But thankfully, the Turbo isn't the only trim in town.

Following its initial debut, Porsche unveiled a much more affordable Taycan 4S, and after spending a day with this variant in the mountains north of Los Angeles, I'm of the belief that the $103,800 Taycan 4S is the one to get.

The Porsche Taycan 4S costs more than a Tesla Model S Performance, despite having a lower range and less straight-line performance.

But a rote comparison of the two doesn't tell the full story.

Does the Taycan feel flashy and futuristic? Yes.

Yet it still feels very much like a Porsche, and that comes through in many ways, from the forward visibility to the way it tackles Angeles Crest.

The Taycan is less about building a Tesla competitor and more about building an electric Porsche that will appeal to the same people Porsche has been appealing to for decades -- Porschephiles.

In that vein, it's already a success.
