    Taycan GT news

    Was listening to the Smoking Tire podcast today, and the host mentioned that he would be in Europe for the "Taycan [muffled sound muffled sound]" and then added "a Taycan worth going to Europe for wink wink" following which the Car and Driver Editor in Chief (who was his guest) said "that's in...

    Mission Es with standard brakes

    Of course the new configurator now allows you to put Mission Es on a Taycan 4S without having to upgrade the brakes. Typical Porsche money grab.

    2022 4S in Ruby Star (PTS)

    If this were local, I'd probably take a close look at it, despite that my wife would likely divorce me. It's one of my favorite colors. Just noting in case anyone else is interested in a relatively rare PTS at what appears to be a reasonable price. 2022 Ruby Star Taycan 4S

    My first HPDE at Circuit of the Americas in Taycan 4S

    This was my first HPDE, which was put on by Porsche Club - Hill Country and Porsche Club - Maverick - taking place over 2 days (yesterday and today) at Circuit of the Americas. All were invited as they're not exclusive to PCA, so there were a good number of BMWs, McLarens, Corvettes, a Lotus...

    Porsche Unseen at SXSW

    Was just over at the Porsche SXSW display for this year, and they had a very interesting Taycan VR simulator that supposedly measured your vital signs relative to the audio stimulus provided. It was a full Taycan setup as far as drivers and passenger seats with fake accelerator and brake pedal...

    How to save HVAC settings

    For whatever reason no matter what I do to the seat ventilation fan setting or the air recirculation settings, they revert back to their default settings whenever I turn the car off. Does anyone know how to save them permanently? For example, the A/C temp stays consistent no matter what, but...

    Side Bolsters

    Was looking at this picture on the MyPorsche page, and the first thing I thought was: "Who is this monster and what must be doing to those side bolsters? Those creases will never come out. "

    Standard Interior - Bolster wear?

    Apologies if this has been covered, but I did a search and didn't see anything. I have the standard interior, which has pleather on the outer parts of the seat bolsters. It looks fine, feels fine, I don't hate it. I'm wondering if anyone who has the standard interior can weigh in on how those...

    March 4S deliveries

    Had an early December lock date and delivery is scheduled for early March ; build should be done next week - but I haven’t heard a single thing from Porsche corporate (as opposed to my local dealer). I was told I should expect a bunch of emails, but nothing so far. SA hasn’t responded to my...

    Getting Nervous re Allocation

    I put a $5k deposit down with the local dealership. Salesperson accepted it and sent a receipt and then later realized that my Porsche Code/order was for a 4S instead of a base Taycan (which we had initially discussed). They then told me that changing to the 4S would move the lock date back...
