    Cost of extended warranty?

    After no luck with my local dealer, a forum member recommended Porsche Chandler in Arizona and that's where I purchased a Porsche Platinum with a $250 deductible. A few months ago it was $6k for 8 years, 96,000 miles covering stuff other than HV battery and HV cables. This aligns with my 2020’s...

    Put on "the list" in 2018, I ordered it in 2019, and after a pandemic delay in the paint shop it was delivered in August of 2020. A 2020 4S with performance battery. The 2020's in the US came with 8 years and 100k on the HV battery. For the Porsche warranty, you need to purchase it before the...

    Taycan Production Halt?

    It's an excellent tour and you'll be amazed at how few people it takes to assemble a Taycan. Make sure you also do the Mercedes Museum in addition to the Porsche Museum. If you haven't yet booked, a great hotel in Stuttgart is the EmiLu Design Hotel in the city center. Fabulous pizza at Pane E...

    You should add to the poll an option for an owned car and purchasing an extended warranty. At 40k miles on my owned 2020 4S+ I've purchased a Porsche extended warranty to 8 years to align with the HV battery warranty. I'll keep the "classic" and upgrade at the 7-year date when better battery...

    "Car dealers say they can’t sell EVs, tell Biden to slow their rollout" incl. 58 Porsche dealers - Article

    Porsche has loaded the dealerships with zillions of base 2-wheel drive Taycans, now sitting on their lots in big numbers. Clearly a serious market miscalculation, perhaps driven by the need to hit a corporate average fuel economy. I'm guessing you could get a pretty good discount on those. At...

    WTB: 2020 4S

    The '21 will have Plug & Charge, so you will be able to just plug into Electrify America chargers (if you can find a working one) and have it billed directly if you set up a Porsche Connect account. The 20's didn't have it, so you have to fumble with the Connect App when charging. I'd get the...

    Swapping a 2021 Turbo for a 2024 GTS?

    I tried to order a GTS early last year to replace my 2020 4S+, but at that time the only dealer that was taking orders in my region had an additional $10,000 "market adjustment" price. Ridiculous. Since that time the value of a used Taycan has tanked. Given the rapid pace of battery technology...

    Domestic Wall Chargers Not Andersen, how about Porsche or Tesla or ?

    I have used the Tesla as my mobile charger, with a Tesla Tap, for over three years. Works perfect. We also have used for a couple of years a Wallbox Pulsar Plus 40A 240V, 9.6k, that works great. They now have a Pulsar Plus 48A 240V that charges up to 11.5kW. I'd stay away from the Porsche...

    Using the TeslaTap

    I've used a Tesla Tap for over three years for my Taycan, as I have a Tesla charger as my mobile charger. Works perfectly with a Taycan and has survived the heavy rains in the Pacific NW when using outdoors.

    Used Taycan with replaced battery - red flag?

    If the folding mirrors are super important, you might check with your dealer about a retrofit.

    Used Taycan with replaced battery - red flag?

    I’d buy it with the fresh battery. My 2020 4S+ had its battery replaced in summer 2023, now with about 15% better range.

    Dreaded Red Electrical System Error & Poll

    3 years and 38,550 miles. I was getting up to 240 miles in summer, but with the new HV it’s regularly 275 at 100%. I can make it to our beach house now without a charge stop, which is terrific.

    Taycan Problems are overwhelming an otherwise great car

    Looks like in the U.S. Porsche USA now has a stock of HV batteries. From diagnosis to full battery replacement took 12 days on my 2020 4S+ this month. Quite a bit more range too with the new battery. I was considering a switch to a GTS but decided to buy an extended Porsche warranty and keep...
