  • Impressive electric power
  • Impressive range
  • Lots of standard equipment
  • Nothing in particular

Summary

The Taycan is Porsche's first pure EV. At over 2.3 tons, it's heavy and, at times, there's no disguising it, but because it's not an SUV, the center of gravity is very low. The Taycan might just be more enjoyable to drive than any other current four-door Porsche.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Reviewers from Autocar have found the following[***]:
The new, all-electric Porsche Taycan is finally here, on British roads. It takes 10 minutes to discover what an unprecedented job Porsche has done in disguising the Taycan's 2.3-tonne kerb weight. It feels lighter on its feet than a Panamera, despite being nigh-on 300kg heavier, with sharp turn-in and unflappable body control.

Sentiment Score[*] 76%
Reviewers from Autocar have found the following[***]:
The new Porsche Taycan, in toppermost Turbo S form, costs £138,826 before options. Cheaper, less powerful, non-Turbo Taycans will follow, but when early adopters with heavy wallets are waiting, why offer those now? This expensive market entry is Porsche's first pure EV, but the company has form with electricity via its hybrids.

Sentiment Score[*] 79%
Reviewers from Autoexpress have found the following[***]:
The new Porsche Taycan could well be the finest and most complete electric cars we've ever driven. It handles like a sports car, with savage acceleration and an agile, rewarding chassis – yet offers four seats and a usable range. Price will limit its popularity to begin with, but if the entry-level models are anything like as good as this top-spec Turbo S – and we've little reason to doubt they will be.

  • Fantastic acceleration
  • Impressive range
Cons[**]

Sentiment Score[*] 71%
Reviewers from Digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
Porsche's first series-produced electric car is its most high-tech model to date. On back roads, the Taycan feels a lot like a Panamera in the sense that it's a big, heavy car that hides its weight well. It's equipped with four-wheel steering, so the rear wheels turn slightly in the opposite direction as the front wheels at up to about 30 mph.

Pros[**]
  • High-tech infotainment system
  • Easy-to-use rear-wheel drive
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular
