The Porsche Taycan Gets Ludicrously Expensive with Options

The Porsche Taycan Gets Ludicrously Expensive with Options

You can spec a Porsche Taycan to over $240,000

Nobody was expecting the Porsche Taycan, the brand’s first mass market all-electric vehicle, to be cheap. And it isn’t, even when just talking about its base asking price. When you start piling on the options (and if you’re configuring one of these, make no mistake, you will), the price quickly soars to astronomical levels.

The Porsche 911 GT3 RS Configurator is Online and Boy Does it Have Some Crazy Options

The Porsche 911 GT3 RS Configurator is Online and Boy Does it Have Some Crazy Options

Lizard Green everything!

There was a time when online configurators for new cars took a few days (or even weeks) to become available. That’s a thing of past now, especially when talking about sports cars. Performance vehicles from Porsche, Ferrari, and Lamborghini don’t spend too much time in showrooms, and it’s exactly why customers are given the opportunity to customize their ride as soon as the first official details are out. It’s been just a few hours since the updated Porsche 911 GT3 RS was launched and you can already configure your dream model. Ready to have some fun?

Configure the Porsche 911 GT2 RS you can't afford

Configure the Porsche 911 GT2 RS you can’t afford

You can’t buy it anyway, because it’s sold out!

Expected to make a comeback after five years, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS returned to the market at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed. It took an unofficial unveiling at a tech show and numerous reports about its performance, but it’s finally here. And as it usually happens, the official launch came with a new online configurator. Sure, I could argue that the limited-edition GT2 RS is already sold out and the configurator is pretty much useless now, but we can at least have some fun with it.

Options are very similar to the 911 GT3, meaning you can customize a lot of features, both inside and out. You can also add performance-enhancing parts, as well as opt for Porsche’s already iconic Delivery Experience program, which delivers the car to Atlanta in the U.S. and Zuffenhausen or Leipzig in Germany. So whether you’ve already ordered your GT2 RS or you just want to build the dream car you can’t afford, let’s have a closer look at the features.

You Can Now Configure The Porsche 911 GT3 Of Your Dreams

You Can Now Configure The Porsche 911 GT3 Of Your Dreams

Go wild!

Priced from $143,600 before options and delivery, the Porsche 911 GT3 isn’t exactly an affordable sports car. But, even though most of us can’t afford one, it doesn’t mean we can’t dream about taking a GT3 home some day. And the configurator for the new 911 GT3 is here to encourage you to do just that by designing the sports car of your dreams.

Although not as customizable as other high-profile supercars, the new 911 GT3 comes with plenty of options inside and out. The exterior can now be ordered in several colors, including the Lava Orange that Porsche introduced on the GT3 RS and Miami Blue, a light shade of blue with a hint of turquoise. These colors, alongside the familiar Carmine Red and Chalk, are the most expensive, being priced from $4,220. The metallic range, which includes seven options, including Graphite Blue and Sapphire blue, costs $720. If you’re looking to save some cash, you can go with the four, no-cost standard colors - black, white, Guards Red, and Racing Yellow.

Moving over to wheels, the 911 GT3 is restricted to a set of 20-inch, double-twin-spoke rims. However, they can be finished in either satin aluminum, satin platinum, satin black, and satin black with a Guards Red outer lip. These options cost $1,220, while the red lip adds another $700.

More customization is possible via Porsche Exclusive, which offers a range of exterior options such as painted logos and lettering, black headlamps with PDLS, body-colored side skirts, gloss black door handles and lower mirror caps, carbon-fiber upper mirror caps, and aluminum look fuel cap. The black headlamps are the most expensive at $2,900, while the carbon mirrors fetch $1,420.

How High Can You Price Your Porsche Panamera Turbo Executive?

How High Can You Price Your Porsche Panamera Turbo Executive?

This thing can get really, really expensive!

The new Panamera Turbo Executive is a fantastic car in many respects. For starters, it’s the most comfortable Porsche yet thanks to the extra 5.9 inches added to the wheelbase. It’s also the brand’s quickest and most powerful sedan. The twin-turbo, 4.0-liter V-8 under the hood cranks out a whopping 550 horsepower and 567 pound-feet of torque, enabling the sedan to hit 60 mph in 3.6 seconds on its way to a top speed of 190 mph. But as exciting as they may sound, these figures come with a number that’s not exactly inspiring. I’m talking about the $160,000 sticker, which makes it more expensive than several full-size, luxury sedans out there.

Granted, it’s not the most expensive Porsche you can buy, but it can get there if you added too many of the company’s pricey options. How expensive can a Panamera Turbo Executive get? I just had a look at the car’s configurator in order to find out.

The expensive options kick in right from the first page, which allows you to customize the exterior. While Porsche offers 10 colors at no cost, if you want the special Carmine Red, Palladium, or Amethyst, you’ll need to spend another $3,300. The wheels aren’t cheap either. Opt for any 21-inch set and it will cost you at least $2,440 and up to $3,915 for the SportDesign wheels painted in exterior color. Other pricey options include the SportDesign package at $5,655 (or $6,075 if selected in black), tinted taillights at $835, and thermal & noise insulated glass at $1,240.

Once inside, you can spend another $530 on the two-tone upholstery, $2,750 on the Premium Package Plus, $4,060 for a massage function for both front and rear seats, and $3,170 on the larger rear center console. There’s also plenty of driver assist options to choose from and getting them all will cost you around $20,000. If you’re looking to spend even more, you can do it by getting a dark walnut steering wheel for $790, the Paldao Interior Package for $1,455 and illuminated door sills in either aluminum or carbon-fiber for $1,015 and $1,380, respectively. The audio section alone is packed with expensive options, including the rear seat entertainment system ($2,630) or the Burmester surround sound system ($5,935).

Finally, you can drop another $20,000 on performance upgrades such as the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport ($5,000), the ceramic-composite brakes ($8,960), the Sport Chrono Package ($2,530), and the sport exhaust system ($3,490 or $3,855 depending on the color).

All told, the Panamera Turbo Executive can cost more than $200,000 with the right options. I just managed to build a $234,465 sedan by adding $73,415 worth of extras to the $160K sticker and the $1,050 shipping and handling fee. Can you build a more expensive rig? Post you dream Panamera Turbo Executive in the comments box below.

Porsche Panamera - Online Configurator Goes Live

Porsche Panamera - Online Configurator Goes Live

Create the second-generation Porsche Panamera of your dreams

In June 2016, Porsche introduced one of the year’s most expected debuts — the second-generation Panamera. Redesigned from the ground up, the new sedan is not only packed with state-of-the-art technology, but also looks better than ever before and lapped the Nurburgring quicker than a bunch of iconic supercars. Having already established that the second-gen Panamera is as cool as they get, it is now time to have a closer at the official American configurator that Porsche just launched. In other words, if you’re planning on buying one, you can start building it right now!

As with all Porsche sports cars and crossover, the sedan too benefits from an array of options to help you customize your new ride. There are multiple exterior colors to choose from, a handful of upholstery trims, and all sorts of packages that enhance either comfort or sportiness. Only two trim levels are available as of this writing, but Porsche will likely introduce new models and several limited-edition versions once the sedan hits showrooms. For the moment, you can only configure the 4S and Turbo models.

Until the Germans unleash the full lineup of new Panameras, let’s have a closer look at what you can play with in the online configurator.

Porsche 911 GT3 RS Configurator Goes Live

Porsche 911 GT3 RS Configurator Goes Live

It’s been only a couple of days since Porsche unleashed the mighty 911 GT3 RS at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, and the 500-horsepower sports car is already at our disposal through the company’s online configurator. So whether you have at least $175,900 to spare or you’re just curious about the options this track beast can be equipped with, now it’s a great time to start building your very own GT3 RS.

As a reminder, the GT3 RS returns to the market for 2016 after a four-year hiatus, with a naturally aspirated, 500-horsepower, 339-pound-feet, 4.0-liter, flat-six powerplant at the rear. The engine is identical to the one Porsche planted in the GT3 RS 4.0 back in 2011, but due to revised chassis and body components, as well as a quick-shifting PDK transmission, the new GT3 RS is 0.6 second quicker from 0 to 60 mph, a benchmark it now achieves in 3.3 ticks.

Visually, the new sports car represents a significant departure from the previous model, as Porsche decided to craft the aerodynamic body around a 911 Turbo shell. As a result, the 2016 GT3 RS is the first of its kind to sport Turbo intakes on the rear fenders. The louvered front fenders are yet another novelty for the RS, as is the magnesium roof, which lowers the center of gravity. But enough with the talk, let’s see what options the GT3 RS has in stock for 2016.
