The Porsche Taycan Turbo S received Road & Track’s honorable “Performance EV of the Year” title for 2024.

Road & Track states that the Porsche Taycan Turbo S: “is the best evidence to suggest that enthusiasts can still have a place in a battery-only future.” Although the Taycan has a 222-mile range compared to the Tesla Model S 348, Road & Track gushes that they enjoyed every mile of the Taycan Turbo S so much more. Additionally, Road & Track expresses that the interior of the Taycan looks appropriate for a $100,000 car but not $200,000. However, they emphasize that they would “take the spare Porsche interior over the glittery Las Vegas–nightclub vibe of the Mercedes-AMG EQE every time.”
