The base version will start from $79,990 (MSRP), which effectively is $73,840 after delivery charges and deducting federal tax credit.

Porsche announced today the entry-level Taycan variant,that is available for order now and should reach U.S. dealerships in early Spring 2021.

It’s rear-wheel-drive (which saves some 200 lbs of weight by not having the front motor) and is less powerful than the 4S, Turbo and Turbo S versions, but other than that, it’s like all other Taycan models.

The main difference is the acceleration – 0-60 mph in 5.1 seconds, compared to 2.6 , 3.0 and 3.8 seconds in the all-wheel-drive versions.
