Porsche's Taycan 4S may be the midgrade model of the brand's EV range, but it drives like the top dog.
The Taycan's low-slung body and seating position helps this 4S feel more like a sports car from behind the wheel than a sedan.
Priced from $105,150 ($103,380 plus $1,350 destination fee), this particular 4S was optioned up to $136,190.
The 4S offers 482 horsepower (562 hp in boost mode) when equipped with the big battery option. Torque is listed at an ample 479 pound-feet.
Range is the Taycan 4S' Achilles heel. The EPA says to expect just 227 miles with this bigger-battery (93.4-kWh) variant, and the standard 79.2-kWh pack is only good for 199 miles.
The Taycan 4S is 195.4 inches long, riding atop a 114.2-inch wheelbase. Its superslippery shape has a drag coefficient of just 0.22.
If you need a bit more space than what's offered back here, the Taycan is now available in a new, wagonlike Sport Turismo variant. We love it.
The Taycan's all-digital gauge array will be both new and reassuringly familiar in layout to brand loyalists.
This model's 18-way Adaptive Sport Seats ($400) feel like a good value. At $4,130, the optional, coarse-feeling Race-Tex fabric does not.
Second-row accommodations are tighter than you'll find in most sedans, but useful in a pinch.
The digital reconfigurable gauge cluster does without a hood, but it's visible and crisp even in direct sunlight.
