So with room for four to sit in comfort and a reasonably sized boot just like every other Taycan, should you save nearly £13,000 and buy this instead of a 4S? Well, if you value range and image above speed and driver thrills, yes – but we’d certainly take a long hard look at the longer range Tesla Model S.

However, paying a bit more for the 4S takes the Taycan from deeply impressive to mind-blowing, especially with a few choice options. That would be our pick.
