    Has Porsche Killed the Taycan?

    Despite having ordered a Turbo 25, I find myself wondering whether Porsche has effectively killed off the model. Prove me wrong! There are several reasons for my concerns: 1) The Taycan used to be Porsche's most technologically advanced and forward-thinking vehicle. Nowadays, it seems like the...

    Ice grey or Dolomite?

    Hey guys! I'm in the process of finalizing the setup of a Turbo, and it's incredibly difficult to choose between ICE GREY and GREY DOLOMITE. I haven't seen Dolomite with my own eyes, but I'm afraid it might be very close to Tesla's Grey Quicksilver, which looks very cheap.* (see below) I...

    The perfect rims for Turbo?

    Hello everyone, I'm ready to place an order for a Turbo MY25, but I'm still quite undecided on the wheels and rims. On one hand, I'm drawn to the new Mission E wheels, which have a lower impact on the range, but I've heard that the 21-inch ones are less comfortable on the road and, more...

    Do I have to change my tires?!

    Hi guys! I hope you are well :) I drove for 15000 km with the Taycan with the same tires (yes, I know, it’s not a good thing but weather is too incertain in Paris ?). Today, I’m wondering if I have to change it. I have Michelin 20 inches. What is your thoughts when you look at these pictures...

    How turn on pre cool before charging?

    Hi guys, I hope you are well. I still don’t know how to turn on battery pre-cool/pre-warn before charging (and, then, optimise the charging time) In fact, I don’t know how can I say to the vehicle that I will charge it at high voltage in a couple of minutes. Is it only with the GPS? I tried to...

    Gearbox anomaly

    Hi, I hope you are well and you appreciate your Taycan (and if you are still waiting for it, it worth the wait). Today, when I was on highways (and after some accelerations and braking due to traffic), I saw a yellow alert. It was in french but it said something like “gearbox anomaly, you can...

    Touching the rocker panel

    Hi guys, I have the feeling my Taycan touches often the rocker panel especially in parkings. I feel the vehicle. I can feel the vehicle rising and scraping slightly. But when I look underneath the vehicle, I don't see anything. What are the consequences in your opinion?

    Hi guys, Here in France, we have many Type2 public plugs and that is great. However, the cable is not there very often, you have to plug your own type2 cable. Porsche sells a type 2 cable but I don't know how fast is it. Do you know which (and where) type2 can I purchase, especially for...

    In-car purchase ?

    Hi guys, When I ordered my Taycan 4S, my dealer told me there will be some "in-car purchase", exactly like Tesla does. He told me 2 features could be purchased like an in-app purchase OR rented for a few hours : Porsche Intelligent Range Manager & Heat Seat. Have you heard something like that?

    Hi guys, each time we see a launch control in action on a video, the driver uses a Turbo or Turbo S. I’ve never seen a Launch Control on a 4S. All videos with a 4S is either on snow or on City. Do Porsche are worried about this feeling on a 4s? If my memory is good, the 4S (with the battery...
