    Taycan STOP SALE faulty vehicle campaign preventing new deliveries

    My car (Taycan Turbo) has been sitting at the docks at Sheerness since the 12th of Feb and still hasn't made it to the dealer. Not been waiting as long as @Johnny73 as I ordered mid-Dec. Last weekend was meant to be my collection date, but there is still no sign of the car at the dealer...

    Tesla Model S Plaid+ on the website for configuration

    Sure the Tesla was a step in the right direction for EVs, but being the "looker" of that group back in 2012 isn't much of an accolade - it puts it just in front of a milk float. Personally, I've always compared it to ICE and EV cars, especially given there are fewer drivetrain design...

    Tesla Model S Plaid+ on the website for configuration

    I know this is somewhat subjective, but do many people really think the Model S is at all decent looking? I find this completely perplexing as it looks like a bargain car to me. The Taycan will be my first EV, not because any Tesla is a bad car, but because the cars' design is so absent. I...

    UK Taycan Insurance

    I amended my Admiral insurance online to swap my BMW M4 Comp (personal contract hire) for the Taycan Turbo (which is company registered), and it let me put that in and it had no impact on the premium increase (£88 either way).

    Ordered 4S in December, still no freeze date

    I know of other people who have ordered the Turbo a couple of months before me and are not getting their cars until April. It probably depends on your model, but also definitely the dealer too.

    Ordered 4S in December, still no freeze date

    You probably ordered soon after me. I ordered my Taycan Turbo at the end of the 2nd week of December for a January build slot. Colchester also offered a February build slot at the time, but I wanted to make sure the car was here before the end of the tax year. The car is now in the UK at...

    Taycan GTS - Imagine the possibility!

    How strange, it didn't feel modest to me. It felt huge and definitely worth the money. It probably makes a difference that this will be my only car (I don't drive too much), and therefore it has to act as a regular car and my fun car. 🤷‍♂️ On testing the 4S+, I loved the car (especially the...

    Taycan GTS - Imagine the possibility!

    I suspect the GTS will be a while yet but I'm looking forward to it. By the time it arrives, we'll probably have had a facelift to the current cars, therefore the big performance gap between the Turbo/S and the 4S might grow even wider. Fully expect them to make the bumper and skirts more...

    Taycan Waiting Room: Who has ordered and a delivery date?

    Dealer told me my car is on the boat now and will arrive in the UK next week. So excited!

    2021 Taycan RWD base model reviews are here!

    I think it all depends on what you want from a car - I'm sure the RWD is very worthy, but reviewers drive exciting different cars every day and are not just "stuck" with one. Having said that, many people here seem to have many cars too. :D The new RWD Taycan doesn't do it for me as it takes a...

    Taycan Waiting Room: Who has ordered and a delivery date?

    @SK74 I talked to my dealer about all this, but it isn't easy to know really where things are at... My build has been swift, ordered mid-Dec and built by 20th Jan (just over a month). From there it has slowed down a little now. It is at the dock now, and they said rather than early Feb (which...

    Taycan Waiting Room: Who has ordered and a delivery date?

    @torx Another Norfolk Taycan? Where are you located, there are a few of us here now!

    Taycan Waiting Room: Who has ordered and a delivery date?

    My Turbo build was completed on the 20th Jan (ordered mid-Dec) and Colchester suspect it is at the port although it's showing as “in transit”. They say the next update will be when it is on a ship although they have been experiencing “a bit of a bottleneck”. Still, they remain hopeful it’ll be...

    Taycan Waiting Room: Who has ordered and a delivery date?

    I’ve been told today that my car is heading to the port from the factory (or is already there) but that Porsche are experiencing some delays at the port when shipping to the UK. Anyone else hear this?

    Taycan Cross Turismo spotted with new wheel design

    Makes the car look rather dumpy... and unlike the Panamera, the Taycan doesn't look dumpy to start with. 🤮

    CARRARA WHITE Taycan Club

    Love seeing pics of your car. Other than the wheels, it is very close in appearance to the one I'm getting fairly shortly. :)

    Business Lease Vs Outright purchase in the UK

    Surely with HP, you get the same benefits as an outright purchase (like 100% First Year Allowance) but the additional cost of borrowing the money? While the interest might not be huge, all things being equal, HP would still make it more expensive overall than buying outright? I aimed to go in...

    Business Lease Vs Outright purchase in the UK

    Hang on, if you purchase the car and use the FYA, don't you have to pay the VAT? So the £90K remains £90K? I'm confused, which is pretty easy in this case.

    Taycan Waiting Room: Who has ordered and a delivery date?

    @remanis I'm Carrara White Metallic with Mission E wheels too... although just the Turbo, not the S. http://www.porsche-code.com/PM7FA7C4
