The new Porsche Taycan 4S is already available for purchase and will be seen at dealerships no later than January 2020.
On sale now across the nation, the 2020 Porsche Taycan 4S starts at $105,150 when fitted with the Performance Battery, and $111,730 with the Performance Battery Plus.
Maximum charging capacity is 225kW with the standard battery and 270kW for the Performance Battery Plus version. The rear motor still gets a two-speed transmission, and like the Taycan Turbo it uses a 300V inverter for the front motor and 600V in the rear. Obsessive car-spotters will notice a model-specific lower front bumper, new-look side skirts, and a black rear diffuser set the 4S apart from the more expensive Taycan variants.
While Porsche aficionados will instantly recognize the 4S nameplate from other models like the 911 and the Panamera, the Taycan puts a unique spin on it by breaking it down into two powertrains. Both variants accelerate to 60 miles per hour in just 3.8 seconds, with a top speed of 155 miles per hour.

Porsche's first fully-electric model line, the Taycan has now been augmented with the Taycan 4S variant, positioned below the launch variants Taycan Turbo S and Taycan Turbo as the current entry-level model in the line-up. However, the rear motor is 80mm shorter than it is in the Turbo and Turbo S, while it also receives smaller brakes, down to 360mm and six pistons on the front and 358mm and four pistons at the rear. As long as the battery is preheated and the state of charge is below 20 percent, both packs should reach 80 percent after 22.5 minutes connected to an 800V DC fast charger.
Distinguishing exterior features of the Taycan 4S include its aerodynamically optimised 19-inch wheels and red-painted brake callipers.
Inside, the Taycan 4S comes standard with a partial-leather interior, as well as eight-way front seats.
The Taycan 4S comes with Porsche's 4D adaptive chassis, as well as a three-chamber air suspension. LED headlamps and dynamic lamps are included.
Perhaps the best thing about the Taycan 4S is its price: $103,800 for the standard version, and $110,380 for the Performance Battery Plus option, both of which exclude $1,350 for destination. As with the Taycan Turbo S and Taycan Turbo, the Taycan 4S can be specified with an entirely leather-free interior, with upholstery made of recyclable material.
