  1. Taking One Lap of the Country in my Taycan Turbo - 10k miles in 6 weeks Cross-Country Journal

    Don, It was a fantastic journey, thank you for sharing with us. Great trip, great car, great pictures.... Quick question: does the Taycan remember the driving mode once you select it (stays in sport / range or whatever - like Tesla) or does it default each time to normal (like my Mercedes)? It...
  2. I hope the onboard Porsche Intelligent Range Manager is better than the online version !

    I am sure this will get better in time. The one thing that surprised me was that Porsche dealerships do not have yet the 800V charging. My local dealer mentioned something about one getting installed, but nothing yet. If all dealership would have these, it would be already an excellent network...
  3. I hope the onboard Porsche Intelligent Range Manager is better than the online version !

    Similar complaints for these guys travelling from Norway to Spain. They have a nice series of episodes, the last one is when they have to be towed because the Porsche Planner routed them to a city charger that was not working, then they could not connect to a gas station charger because they...
  4. I hope the onboard Porsche Intelligent Range Manager is better than the online version !

    I thought Ionity provides a special rate for Taycan - 0.33 Euro/kWh. The prices listed are at 0.79 Euro per kWh.
  5. My Taycan 4S delivered in Germany

    Great info on range - thank you for sharing! Can you post some pictures of your interior at night? I cannot find the Taycan night pictures other than the ones from the brochure. Also a question: Does the car stay in the selected driving mode when you switch it off? My Merc keeps going back to...
  6. Mission Taycan 4S Accomplished (Delivered)!

    Very impressive! Looks like 4.2, 4.4 and 4.1 seconds to ~100 km/h in those 3 runs - and that is with 3 men in the car....
  7. Comfort Seats or Adaptive Sports seats - Which is better?

    Massage seats for me. They are really great on long trips
  8. White Mission E wheels on white 4S?

    Checkout the Mission 4S delivered thread - Mission Taycan 4S accomplished (delivered)! Beautiful white with mission E wheels.
  9. Mission Taycan 4S Accomplished (Delivered)!

    Wonderful car - congratulations! Share as much as you can - after obviously enjoying the ride. I think you are the first member of the forum to own a 4S
  10. Taking One Lap of the Country in my Taycan Turbo - 10k miles in 6 weeks Cross-Country Journal

    I guess that was when he drove through the snow storm. Slush / snow on the road kills the range more than anything else - at least in my Tesla. Bottom line is that on an average cold day you can expect 180+ miles of range, which solves my range problems . Woohoo!
  11. Taking One Lap of the Country in my Taycan Turbo - 10k miles in 6 weeks Cross-Country Journal

    A lot of future Taycan owners are current Tesla owners - myself included. Can't wait to drive mine. Only 7 months left, but who is counting.....
  12. Taking One Lap of the Country in my Taycan Turbo - 10k miles in 6 weeks Cross-Country Journal

    This is a wonderful thread, thank you for sharing your experience with us. When back, consider putting something on YouTube or similar. Everything reminds me of Bjorn Nyland's early videos on model S - you would do the same for the Taycan.
  13. Taking One Lap of the Country in my Taycan Turbo - 10k miles in 6 weeks Cross-Country Journal

    0.435 kWh/mi is very impressive considering how cold it is. Thanks for doing this trip and keeping us posted
  14. Tires, other options

    One other advantage for the 20" wheels is that Nokian has the Hakkapeliitta R3 size for winter tires.
  15. Owner Discusses Taycan Range, Battery Longevity, Charging and Related Concerns

    All US cars have a heat pump as standard. Thanks to LFCdan who found it on UK site - it is burried deep.... When you save your configuration on the US site and choose to print rather than just generate Porsche code you will get a pdf document. Scroll toward the end of the document and you will...
  16. Tires, other options

    Only in your wallet :) Surprisingly, when selecting the 20" Taycan aero wheels on the Porsche UK range estimator, they appear more efficient. Not sure I buy that given the increase in tire size....
  17. Real-World EV Range Testing

    I think it is also important to look at the EPA range for these cars. For those who did not watch the video, it was done with a starting outside temp of 7C (45F) dropping to 5C (41F) at the end of the trip, mostly on highways at a cruise control speed set at 70 mph. Mercedes-Benz EQC - EPA...
  18. Tires, other options

    Price does not include the glass roof or the larger battery - these are forced options that you have to pay for. Here is the picture from the website ($103800) and below the configurator price just as you launch it ($114340) - as you can see you have already "opted" for $9190 worth of equipment...
  19. Tires, other options

    Not sure about that. By my calculations the Taycan is actually cheaper in UK...… As far as I can tell, your VAT on cars is 20% in UK, and the price in pounds includes VAT. So if you take the start price for the Taycan in UK at 83367 pounds that is $108718.90 - and includes 20% tax (giving a...
  20. I ask and answer: Why won't my Taycan Charge as fast as I want it to?

    0.5 KWh /mi is actually OK good considering the weather. For comparison, my wife's Tesla model 3 is currently averaging 0.43 kWh/mi in a not so bad last week (low 20s AM, 30s PM), some snow on the ground - I suspect similar to what you encounter. With that consumption your Taycan will be around...
