    I beat the Porsche Taycan Turbo's EPA-estimated range without even trying - RoadShow

    Nah - more like some US testers noticed that if they turned the steering wheel then emissions went through the roof (as that took it outside the test cycle parameters).

    Europe used for sale!

    Its normal for dealers to immediately list their demo cars esp for models with a big waiting list.

    Rats. I should’ve gotten one of these

    I’ve got a lot of time for Koenigsegg - starting from a shed and a desire to build HyperCars to what he has built up is incredible. The key part I think is that he builds cars he wants to drive first. This car came out from him and his wife having their first child and so not able to fit in any...

    Opinions on Black vs Yellow Calipers on Turbo S

    Same here - I've always gone for contrast brake calipers even when not ceramic.

    Maximum AC charing rate: 9.6 kW or 11 kW?

    I’ve been told the car can accept 11kw. I suspect it might be the charge cable/controller that is maybe limited to 9.6?

    Taycan fire in Florida garage

    Even worse when you have to run armoured steel cable! In the UK you wouldn’t be allowed to do that kind of work diy without somebody qualified signing it off.

    Comfort access

    Not sure I like that. TBH it's like electronic handbrakes... it's a problem that didn't need fixing.

    Comfort access

    I had a 2006 Toyota with comfort access and you could walk up to the car, pull the (now unlocked) handle, get in press start and go. When finished you'd press the stop button, get out the car, shut the door and walk away. about 10 feet away you'd hear a "clunk" as the car locked. Not everything...

    U.K. Launch/Deliveries pushed back?

    Well I guess anything is possible but it comes down to how much it will cost. I suspect that this is a hardware limitation so I would work on the assumption that it is "no". Anything else will be a bonus.

    Front fender vents

    Guessing The insert is there to solve the downside with the vents on road cars - mud and stones get flicked up by the wheels and can damage the door. As an aside, it's why the TVR Sagaris had massive arch vents that on production models were completely filled in... drivers were having the...

    Taycan fire in Florida garage

    Calculating minimum Gauge of wire is a complicated job. Need to factor in things like distance, current, in trunking or surface mounted, stranded or solid core etc... For normal loads it’s relatively easy but when you are dealing with devices that can draw a sustained large current over long...

    Turbo S vs Turbo - 80-120kph times

    But that’s the point - you can’t have continuous hp with different torques if the gearing is the same. In fact almost impossible to have continuous hp... The last bit is key - given that the turbo s will be doing 100kph (give or take) when the launch control boost is deactivated after 2.5...

    Turbo S vs Turbo - 80-120kph times

    I don’t see how the continuous hp can be the same but one have higher continuous torque? Assuming they have the same gearing then the rpm for each will be the same so a difference in torque will cause a corresponding increase in hp. What we don’t know is for how long the extra launch control...

    Does it take more energy to heat or to cool the interior?

    Just checked and heat pump standard for the UK

    Does it take more energy to heat or to cool the interior?

    No idea on the specifics of the Taycan but normally AC is way more efficient than heating... but they taycan does have a heat pump which is much better than traditional heating elements.
