Taycan Turbo S: $220,180

The only choice when picking a Porsche Taycan is the Taycan Turbo S. It starts at $185,000, but don’t worry, there are plenty of available options that’ll inflate the final price. While blue is my go-to color when configuring a new car – a good blue goes a long way in accentuating a car’s design – Porsche’s Carmine Red caught my eye, a $3,150 option. I kept the stock black 21-inch Mission E Design wheels to add contrast with the red paint. 

Inside, I decided to keep things low-key with the simple black leather interior. Few of Porsche’s color options looked appealing, and I’d rather play it safe than do something crazy. Options are where you get much of your kit. The $4,340 Premium Package adds insulated glass, lane keep assist, park assist, and more, and you can upgrade to the massaging and ventilated seats for $1,150. 

Night vision is $2,240 while the Burmester audio system commands $5,810. Add the SportDesign Package in Carbon Fiber for $5,660, the passenger display for $1,130, LED-Matrix headlights for $580, and more, and the price for my perfect Porsche Taycan is $220,180 including the $33,830 in options. Ouch.
