2022 Porsche Taycan

FOR $12,000 less than the last V8 Mercedes-AMG C63S sedan you can have the first electric Porsche sedan. It feels like something a tipping point in hot four-door history.

And though getting close to the AMG’s whopping outputs of 375kW and 700Nm requires an extra 35 grand for the all-wheel-drive Taycan 4S, such is life with the pecking order of Stuttgart-based car brands.

First customer deliveries of the entry-level and eponymous Taycan are now rolling into Australia, where it is priced from $156,300 before on-road costs for the range’s only rear-drive variant.

It’s less powerful but lighter than the dual-motor variants and of course, there’s a purity to rear-drive sports sedans.

But will it leave you wanting more? We spend a few hours behind the wheel of the least-expensive electric Porsche to find out.
