    Kyle shows you: "How To Option The New 2025 Porsche Taycan"

    Of course. It may be just me, but when I prefer Thomas when it comes to reviewing Porsches. I also like Mat Watson from the CarWow channel. He has the whole snarky British humor thing going, which I enjoy. Mat also owns a new GT3 RS, so he actually has some Porsche credibility. I also...

    Taycan to Lofoten Islands, Norway (Follow Our Trip Report)

    @tigerbalm You continue to serve as a model for the rest of us who enjoy long road trips in our Taycans. You make my 2,500km drives to throughout the American Rockies or American plain states seem like a drive to the local market when you post about these epic drives to the Arctic Circle! I...

    Kyle shows you: "How To Option The New 2025 Porsche Taycan"

    I will give Kyle credit for creating a "YouTube empire" by simply covering EVs. It has provided him with credibility to get early access to a number of launch vehicles, and allowed him to buy a few cars. I am not 30 years old, so his manner of communication does nothing for me. If there...

    Anyone have 12v issues recently? What was service outcome?

    As background, the first system warning I got was the "Electrical System Error," and that was then followed up by a 12v battery system error. With this issue, there was no self clearing by walking away from the car for 15 or 20 minutes to see if it would reset itself. I keep the group in to...

    Anyone have 12v issues recently? What was service outcome?

    As we all know, the universe has a way of balancing itself. I was on the last leg of a 2,500 road trip from Denver to Houston and back when the car decided to throw electrical system/12v battery faults in the middle of my charging session in Colby, KS. I was able to move the car out of the...

    Any Taycans in Dallas/Ft Worth TEXAS?

    I will be in Plano for a meeting on Tuesday morning in my CT4s. I am doing a Denver - Bartlesville - Plano - Houston - Wichita - Denver run next week to see a bunch of clients so figured I would enjoy the open road since the weather is supposed to be mild for the the first three-fourths of the...

    Electrify America CEO-Elect's Coast-To-Coast Road Trip using EA charging stations - Video

    Not sure why the soon to be CEO of Electrify America is going to "detail many unacceptable charging experiences that many have detailed?" He was documenting his experience on using the charging network he will soon be managing. Why is he going to reference someone who has a charging issue...

    Electrify America CEO-Elect's Coast-To-Coast Road Trip using EA charging stations - Video

    I watched the video earlier today after it popped up in my Youtube feed. Honestly, you have to give the guy credit that he was honest when he ran into sites that had non-functioning chargers - like the one in Cedar City, UT. Which happens to be tied with Grand Junction, CO as my least...

    Does driving a Taycan make one an official EV and/or Porsche brand ambassador?

    I love everything about this post, but times have changed, unfortunately. There is a time and a place for everything, but being a brand ambassador for my Porsche Taycan in a Walmart parking lot is not for me. If there is a kid with a parent who wants to take a look at the car, I am cool to...

    Turmoil at VW: Porsches Postponed by Buggy Software Cost VW’s CEO His Job

    “They should have head-hunted the best people from Silicon Valley,” Schmidt said. “You can’t lead on software with automotive people.” I think this sentence says it all. If you had or have an early VIN Taycan you acutely felt this with the numerous fixes, recalls, or updates. I do have to...

    What everyone should know before they buy an EV

    Good article for newbies. I would add that altering the aerodynamics of the car will reduce range. Putting a bike on top of the car, or a cargo box, will knock off 30% or 40% of range. I would also add that a person should always try to have a back up plan in case the charger you need is...

    I would rather walk than have anything to do with something associated with Elon Musk.

    Porsche Landjet 2025 "a [7-seat]] EV capable of going about 404 miles on a charge" - article link

    Evidently the future is not being made for people over 6'3!!! Over 1.9 meters, for our metric friends. All these super cool, long range electric cars need low aerodynamic drag, which makes it not so fun on us slightly taller people to get in and out of. I am already boarding on "clown car"...

    Spanish Fork EA chargers and a group of 3 test Hummer EV’

    Not trying to be a jerk, but am I the only one who think those things are ugly monstrocities? Plus, they take up more than one parking space. Leave it up to GM to make something like that. I have done the drive from Green River to SLC many times. It is a fun drive, in little to no traffic...

    Yes please…and thank you.

    Agreed! Would make me hold on to my e-hybrid Cayenne a little longer if I knew I could replace it with a full EV Cayenne version in a couple of years. It they could squeeze 300 to 325 miles out of it then it would the perfect road trip vehicle.
