2020 Porsche Taycan vs. Its Competition

Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The 2020 Porsche Taycan has few direct rivals, if any.

The Tesla Model S may be the closest, although the price difference between the two—upward of $100,000 in top trims—quashes any direct comparisons.

The Tesla Model S is better at hauling more than two, the Taycan is better at hauling…we can’t write the rest.

The Jaguar I-Pace doesn’t have the same performance, looks, or finish, but it’s an EV from an automaker not called Tesla, which may appeal to some.

The Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 4-Door has performance creds, but no electric powertrain.

It’s also the only way we could say “affordable” and “AMG GT” in the same breath.

The BMW M8 Gran Coupe is in similar air as the AMG GT and looks astounding.
