    What to expect from OTA?

    Hi all, I drive a MY23 (feb) Taycan and was enthusiastic when the SA told me the car supports OTA updates. Last 14 months I did receive 2 updates. A finder one and a weather one. Is this what I can expect for coming years? I was hoping on more / more frequent ones with new features like all the...

    Hi all, I was cleaning my Taycan today and noticed I have moss / algue or mold inside my rear light on both sides. What can I do to remove it, but more important, how can I prevent it from happening Cheers Jasper

    Depreciation, I lost money, I’m crying

    Yes a clickbait title I’ve noticed all topics on this forum are hijacked by comments about depreciation to the point I’m really annoyed by it. We are all on the same boat, but lets not bring it up every 5 comments. The value isn’t going up by posting the same stuff every time. Let’s stay...

    My Taycan 4s is faster than advertised

    To my surprise I was able to hit a speed of 258m/h instead of the advertised 240-250km/h for the Taycan 4s. It felt software limited, at a speed of about 255km/h it felt the vehicle was holding back. (Location; Autobahn - road was almost empty)

    New 2025+ Taycan rear light retrofit onto gen 1 Taycan?

    I really like the rear light design of the gen2 Taycan. The Porsche letters should have been part of the rear light in gen1 IMO. I’m aware not everyone will like it, but what are the chances that the new rear lights are fitting the gen1? Most of the bodywork in the upper part of the vehicle...

    How to avoid traffic jams with navigation

    Hi all, Last few months I did lots of trips with my navigation (PCM) active. I noticed something odd. My previous vehicles (non Porsches) were kind of smart in finding the fastest way to arrive. When possible they avoided traffic jams. With my Taycan I experience the opposite. It calculates...

    iPad for the kids / rear seat entertainment

    Hi everyone! In a couple of weeks I will do a road trip with the kids +- 1200km. In my previous car I had a mount for the iPad that was attached to the head rest of the drivers seat. With the Taycan / sport seats the mount is not usable anymore. What is your experience? What are your...

    Hi all, Since 2 weeks I'm proud owner of a beautiful gentian blue Taycan 4s Sport Turismo. I bought it because it was a Porsche (duh) but also because it is a tech car with all the beautiful displays and options. Last week I was playing around with the Porsche Connect API (I am a software...

    To Timer or not to Timer

    Hi all, I'm a Taycan owner for a week right now. I've read most of the threads about charging. But still don't understand it fully. What would you setup in my situation? I work from the office on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. On these days I leave my house around 7:15. What would be an ideal...

    Which rims are these?

    Hi everyone! My last two months can be summarized as “playing with the taycan configurator” as my lock date is in the near future. I’m still doubting about the wheels I want for my 4S ST. I’ve watched a lot of youtube videos and I think i’ve read almost all threads on this forum to inform...

    Smart home integration w/ Taycan?

    I saw a lot of fellow software engineers are on this forum and are Taycan owners. I’m one myself, and I was wondering, did any of you already succeed in bringing your car to your smart home? I know about IPace and Tesla integrations, but can’t find something for Porsche. I believe it would be...
