I know, right? I am really digging its styling, put a down payment down. It should be a very nice city car.

Honda, nice design? Who would have thought...

Apparently a spec'd out Taycan Turbo S is > $225k. Ummmm. NO. There will be other EVs with similar performance & quality with possibly better max range and nicer interiors and tech for much less money. I was really hoping that the new Taycan would be competitively priced but seriously, it's way, way out there. Of course, they'll add lower performance editions like the 4 S and Base Taycan (RWD) but what's the point to still pay > $100k for less performance than what the $150k base price and spec'd out @ $180k) "Turbo" model? Sorry, but this is a bug disappointment, imho...and I owned a Porsche Macan Turbo and loved it...but it was around the $85-$90k price point completely loaded!

I just specced a Macan turbo to 140k without much trouble. Porsche options are both myriad and stupidly expensive.

Don't know about MY 2019 or MY 2020. My fully loaded 2015 Porsche Macan Turbo was $86k. They must have increased their prices but yes, Porsche is notorious for big $$$ for their options and packages.
