The Porsche Taycan is an all-electric sports car available as a 4-door sedan or wagon-like variant called the Cross Turismo. For the 2022 model year, the biggest change is the addition of a new variant called the Taycan GTS and a Sport Turismo configuration with slightly less ground clearance than the Cross Turismo.
The new GTS features the same motors as the Taycan Turbo EV but produces less power (590 hp vs. 670 hp in the Turbo). Pricing for the GTS sedan will start at just over $132,000 with destination while the Sport Turismo will cost almost $135,000. Expect a nearly $54,000 advantage in MSRP between the GTS and Turbo S.
Now in its 3rd year on the market, Taycan pricing starts at $84,050 including destination before any incentives. Unfortunately, this represents a $2,800 price increase compared to the MSRP of the 2021 Taycan. In base form, the Taycan has a range of up to 225 miles and is capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in 5.1 s.
At the higher end of the spectrum, the Taycan Turbo S offers a 0 to 60 mph time of just 2.6 seconds. With an official output of 750 hp, it's the most powerful Taycan you can buy today. The new GTS may be a nice middle-ground for potential EV buyers, although Porsche has not yet released official range estimates as of this writing.
The 2022 Porsche Taycan is available to order at dealers nationwide. Given the fact that availability has been limited due to a chip shortage, your best bet for buying the Taycan might be with a custom factory order. We recommend checking with your local dealer to explore your options and to get a delivery estimate.
As a fully-electric car, the Taycan is eligible for up to a $7,500 federal EV tax credit. In addition, state & local plug-in incentives can help reduce the EV's cost whether you plan to buy or lease. For example, the California Clean Fuel Reward (CCFR) currently offers an upfront discount of up to $750 for everyone.
The main competitor for the Taycan is the Tesla Model S. Down the line, the Lucid Air promises up to 1,111 hp and an EPA-estimated range of up to 520 miles.
