2020 Porsche Panamera Concept

The clean, straightforward design of the 2020 Porsche Panamera is let down only by the turbo model’s excessive add-ons.

It’ll Be Priced Between the Cayenne and Panamera

Speaking to Automotive News, the model-line director for the Taycan, Rober Meier, said “we’re expecting a price somewhere between a Cayenne and a Panamera,” when asked how much the EV will cost. In the US, the Cayenne starts at just under $66,000, while the Panamera starts at $85,000. So perhaps the Taycan will start in the $75,000 range.

Of course, there’ll be model variants offering more performance, so consider $75,000 a base price.

You Can Put Down a Deposit Now

On Porsche’s website, there’s a form for those who want to register their interest in buying a Taycan. Once that form is filled out, a Porsche dealer will contact those interested, who can then put a deposit down on the upcoming electric sedan. A Manhattan Porsche dealer told us the deposit is $2500.

The Production Car Will Look Like the Concept

The Mission E concept combined futuristic looks with classic Porsche proportions to stunning effect, and thankfully the production car will too. Oliver Blume told Car magazine that the production car is “very close to what you saw two years ago at Frankfurt. It will be exciting but a bit different from the concept.” The folks over at TaycanForum.com previewed the design in the rendering you see above.

Don’t expect the suicide doors of the concept to make production, though.

It’s Got a Clever Drivetrain

The Mission E concept offers 605 hp from its all-electric drivetrain, which consists of two permanent=magnet synchronous motors at each axle. These are the same sort of motors used in the three-time-Le-Mans-winning 919 LMP1 hybrid, and can recover heat energy from braking. With this setup, Porsche promises that the Mission E concept hits 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, 124 mph in under 12, and that it’ll run a sub-8:00 lap at the Nürburgring Nordschleife.

It’ll Have Two Battery Capacity Options

Car and Driver, which recently drove the Mission E Cross Turismo Concept, reports the production Taycan will be offered with a choice of battery packs—one offering around 80 kWh and another offering 95 kWh. If you want the most horsepower, you’ll need the biggest battery.

Stefan Weckbach, head of EV development at Porsche, also told Car and Driver the Taycan will have a battery cooling system. Porsche wants the Taycan to offer consistent, repeatable performance, and keeping the battery within an ideal operating temperature is essential for this.

The best value in 2020 Porsche Panamera is a base model with manual gearbox, but it’s still decently priced after adding fancy audio, leather, and a moonroof.
