If you're looking for a brilliant electric car that offers real driving pleasure, the Porsche Taycan is the one for you. All versions are quick, have amazing handling, and are wonderfully classy and reasonably practical inside. The Taycan is also available with one of the longest official ranges you can get – but on the down side, none of that comes cheap.

The Turbo has bigger front brakes than lesser Taycans, along with heated rear seats, full leather trim, 14-way powered front seats (18-way adaptive sports seats are a no-cost option) and a 14-speaker Bose stereo.

For us, the Turbo is the point in the Taycan range where you start to experience diminishing returns. Yes, it has up to 871bhp, so will hit 62mph in 2.7 seconds, but we reckon the 4S is quick enough for any sane person.
