The 911 sports car has been Porsche’s iconic vehicle. In 2021, the all-electric Taycan outsold the 911, even with record sales.
In 2021, Porsche set a new record for sales globally and in the United States. Globally, Porsche delivered 301,915 vehicles with 70,025 in the U.S., beating 2020 by 22% and 2019 by 14%.
Along with the new sales records, Porsche also sold more Taycans than 911s in 2021.
Globally, Porsche sold 41,296 Taycans compared to 38,464 911s. However, the 911 slightly outsold the Taycan in the U.S. with 10,042 911 models sold and 9,419 Taycans.
Porsche more than doubled electric vehicle sales in 2021, showing how big of a success the Taycan is. Additionally, it shows that consumers are embracing an EV future.
It also helps that Porsche expanded the Taycan family. Initially, Porsche only offered the sedan. Now, there’s the Taycan Sport Turismo and Cross Turismo.
Porsche offers five versions of the Taycan sedan, four of the Cross Turismo, and one Sport Turismo. The starting prices range from $82,700 to $187,600.
The Taycan doesn’t offer the longest driving range. However, the acceleration, build, and handling is exactly what you’d expect from Porsche.
Its premium pricing makes it unaffordable for most people. If you can afford it, you’ll love driving the Taycan. It’s a thrilling and remarkably smooth ride.
