The Porsche brand doesn’t introduce completely new nameplates all that often. Their most iconic vehicle, the 911, has been around for decades. But for the 2020 model year, Porsche decided to add a completely new vehicle to their lineup. The new model, called the Porsche Taycan, took the form of an all-electric midsize sedan. The model is still incredibly new, so we haven’t seen too many pass through our inventory here in North Miami Beach FL, but we have had at least one in recent memory. It’s an incredible machine that combines everything enthusiasts have come to expect from the Porsche brand with the added benefits of an EV platform.
Prior to the release of the Taycan, there was a concept car called the Mission E. This gave us a preview of what became the Taycan, and the finished product was quite similar to the concept. Now, the Taycan has arrived, and it has quickly become an exciting option in the premium all-electric space. The Taycan has only been around for a year or two though, so it hasn’t had a lot of time to accrue variants and special editions like a lot of the other models we highlight in these pages. Even still, there are already six different variations to choose from between its six different trim levels. Available models include the base Taycan available with either a 79-kWh battery or a 93-kWh battery, the Taycan 4S available with either battery, then the Taycan Turbo and Taycan Turbo S, both of which are equipped with the larger battery. Power increases progressively as you move up through the different available models, starting at 402 horsepower and improving to 469, 523, 563, 671 and finally 751 hp. Soon, a new variant called the Taycan Cross Turismo will join the lineup, offering a lifted wagon version of the traditional sedan. It adjusts a few things to create a unique offering that we’re quite excited to see. If you’re interested in a pre-owned Porsche Taycan of your own, don’t hesitate to give us a call or just check out our online inventory here on the website.
