  1. Why is launch control superior to simply smashing one's foot on the accelerator?

    It engages software calibration for traction & stability control to optimize launch that isn't the same as mashing the accelerator at speed.
  2. Is $157K MSRP too much for 4S

    I got PCCBs over Sport Design & Burmester. The choice was cosmetic as much as performance. They look incredible.
  3. 2020 Taycan 4S Risks?

    People generally come to forums to complain. Taycans have nowhere near the rattles of the average Tesla. It's a bleeding edge product so if you expect it to be as trouble-free as a Camry, look elsewhere. I expect some headaches, and I expect them to not matter because it's just that good. If you...
  4. 2020 Taycan 4S Risks?

    FWIW I have a 2015 Macan Turbo that had a lot of early problems. Issues as small as the sunroof shade jumping the track, and as large as the front driver's side air suspension collapsing. All occured in the first few months. It's been bulletproof since. Unless you're prepared to deal with that...
  5. Finish paperwork while car is in repair?

    You know the right answer. And in case there was any doubt, it's HELL NO. Consider yourself lucky that this happened before delivery because all the pressure is on them to get it right. Even after they claim it's fixed, demand a test drive before signing anything. I had a Taycan die on me...
  6. Pic of Head Up Display (HUD) & Wireless CarPlay/Charging

    I debated this for a while & ended up leaving it off because I wear polarized sunglasses a lot. Be aware that they make the HUD disappear. That being said, if it was free I would've added it. Ultimately it was a cost casualty for me as my build already had over $30k in options. Does the shroud...
  7. Mobile Charger Connect is no longer free on Turbo S order

    Absolutely not. I made some last minute changes to my build and submitted a new Porsche code for the adjustments. Of course the new code had $1,120 for the PMCC but I got it taken off. The line in the sand is having your customer created in the system by Dec 18th. Here's a copy of the price...
  8. Roast my lack of restraint ...

    EVERY option looks good to me. Hard to predict which ones you'll never use until after you have the car for a little while. You can now get the base of the B pillar in leather instead of that cheap plastic for the low, low price of $2900! I live in the city so no point in night vision but man...
  9. Roast my lack of restraint ...

    That was kind of an early decision when I saw how much smaller the front brakes are on the 2021s. I was always going to do either PCCB or Burmester & decided on the PCCB. I mostly listen to podcasts anyway & the Bose in the Taycan is an improvement over the very mediocre Bose in my Macan.
  10. Roast my lack of restraint ...

    You can always walk yourself up the ladder to a little more, then a little more, etc. The Turbo S builds seem to range from $205k to $225k. I'm at $189k (I'm still getting the PMCC for free). It's not a huge spread but I had to stop somewhere.
  11. Roast my lack of restraint ...

    I waffled on the wheels. I figure I can always paint them black later if I get sick of the look much easier than painting them Dolomite later. If by "no logo" you mean the model designation, I'd rather not advertise that it's a turbo. That's all.
  12. Roast my lack of restraint ...

    I own an industrial company so I try not do have anything too loud. Otherwise it would've been Mamba Green. My wife liked the silver because it's similar to her old Mazda 3. 🙄 I've owned a string of black cars but getting tired of compulsively washing them so I'm trying to go low maintenance...
  13. Roast my lack of restraint ...

    Not asking for advice bc it locks tomorrow & I've been tweaking this build for months but I figured I'd share in case any of you want to roast me for my decisions. 😂 Long road for me - it was on my radar since the Mission E & considered ordering in July but the wife convinced me to wait for a...
  14. 22KW charging

    Do you have any details on this? My build locks on Tuesday & I'm still on the fence about the 22kW onboard charger.
  15. Taycan Cross Turismo spotted with new wheel design

    Looks like a squished Macan with the Taycan front end strapped to it. Feels like it's close to working but doesn't quite work. Maybe it'll look better in a different color.
  16. How does the standard window and mirror trim look?

    The matte black trim won't look cheap - it'll be like the standard matte black window trim on a 911. This is coming from someone who thinks the matte plastic standard mirrors look horrible.
  17. Which wheels and why....

    There is a significant range penalty as you go from 19 to 20 to 21 because the tire widths are also wider on the larger wheels. The differences in range spec between the 4S, Turbo, & Turbo S are almost entirely due to the stock wheels so that gives you an idea of the range penalty as you go up...
  18. My Porsche Taycan Turbo configuration- HELP!!!

    You've gone this far, you might as well get PDCC for the full experience.
  19. Which Colors ?

    I think Crayon with all black Mission E rims looks absolutely stunning. My wife hated it though.
  20. Exterior color Chalk vs. Ice grey

    I like Chalk a lot but my wife hates it so it's looking like Ice Grey. YMMV
