2021 Porsche Panamera vs 2021 Porsche Taycan

Serving Farmington Hills, MI

As four-door luxury sedans, the Panamera and the Taycan both stand out in the 2021 Porsche lineup, and a quick look at their exteriors may lead you to assume that they are similar vehicles. However, from their pricing to their powertrains and other traits, the 2021 Porsche Panamera and the Taycan are impressively different in exciting ways.


The Panamera is a mid-size sedan with a twin-turbo V6, 2.9-liter engine. This engine produces 325 horsepower, and it requires only 5.3 seconds to jet up to 60 miles per hour. The Taycan, on the other hand, is an all-electric sedan. When equipped with the high-performance battery, launch control, and Overboost Power functionality, it can put out 402 horsepower. Acceleration up to cruising speed is achieved in 5.1 seconds.


These models share a sweeping profile with solid curvature and a rounded nose. The Panamera’s front end has triangular headlights with rounded corners. The sides are slightly flared with broad accents to express its exceptional performance abilities. The Taycan has a sharper swoop through the nose. The headlights are unique, with a single LED bulb mounted between two LED bars. The shape of the headlights has a distinctive hook that angles downward. Compared to the Panamera, the Taycan’s sides have more prominent haunches, and the side flares are less pronounced.


Differences continue to be pronounced throughout their premium cabins. Some features are similar, such as the steering wheel design, the paddle shifters, and the analog clock mounted to the top of the dashboard. The 2021 Panamera has a series of five rounded gauges, a touch display screen for the various multimedia features, and an ascending center console that gives the interior a cockpit-style feel. In the Taycan, you will find a digital screen for the driver’s gauges and three additional digital screens in the dashboard. The screens are mounted at the top of the center stack, in the ascending center console, and front of the passenger.
