    looks like ice grey?
  2. Roof rails or not

    Are you in the US? So far it looks like the US is not getting the rear mount bike rack. You need to tick an option (NG1?) that isn’t available to get the mounting points for the rack during build. That might make the decision easy. Side note, where are you finding photos of cross turismos? I...
  3. Weight: standard vs PCCB brakes

    That’s a cool website. You’re right, the tire diameter of the 21” wheels is nominally 10mm shorter, which will help offset some as well. Thanks Maybe next round I will ballpark the 20 and 21” wheels + tires. We could pretty easily pick the midpoint of the tire sidewall to concentrate the mass...
  4. Weight: standard vs PCCB brakes

    To have equal inertial effects, the 21” wheels need to be at least 10% lighter than the 20” wheels as most of the weight is in the barrel (21^2/20^2=1.10). This is definitely possible with a 25% stronger material forged wheel, but as you say, gotta know the weights of the wheels to really answer...
  5. Weight: standard vs PCCB brakes

    So I used some analogous cars (991 GT3 and turbo, for example) to find rough numbers for rotor masses in the same size class, and I used photos of taycan brakes to estimate ID of the rotor based on its proportion to OD. With these numbers I am armed with enough information to estimate the brake...
  6. Weight: standard vs PCCB brakes

    Once I have a little time, I’ll do some ballpark math comparisons based on similar sized rotors/calipers on other cars. That might get me to the point where I can quantify the difference. Along with estimated suspension, upright, wheel and tire mass it’ll be possible to quantify the difference...
  7. Cross Turismo availability in US

    You guys are making me regret going to Marin! Looks like Burlingame might be out of allocations so I’ve reached out to Rusnak in LA where I ordered my last new porsche. Very straight forward with them as well, numbers were right up front and I’m not sure why I didn’t go that route off the bat...
  8. Taycan’s electric motors explained

    Most EVs seem to be switching between ~7-20kHz depending on whether they’ve made the move to SiC or GaN switches. It’s likely more than 2 pole pair to prevent any cogging from a stop. You can find base speed from the torque/power curves, looks like around 6k rpm. I’m assuming that the curve...
  9. Cross Turismo ground clearance - modes

    If the ride height changes were accomplished with spacers above the air springs, this should be readily clear after inspecting the suspension. It would also help confirm the range of ride height modes per car. If the air spring/strut part numbers are the same as the sedan and this is true, you...
  10. Weight: standard vs PCCB brakes

    I’m probably in the very tail of the Pareto of what matters here, but the engineer in me would like to do the math and prove that it does/doesn’t matter. :) Personally I’m assuming that neither will fade as this will see canyons and not the track, and I’m not hard on brakes in the canyons.
  11. Weight: standard vs PCCB brakes

    So I’m trying to finalize the spec of my 4S CT, and I’m set on a 4S instead of a turbo, but I’m having trouble with the brakes. In most literature and posts where PCCBs are mentioned as saving weight they are being compared against the massive steel PSCBs which are undoubtedly super heavy...
  12. World Premiere of the Taycan Cross Turismo!

    Any chance you were able to tell if the plastic trim was clipped on or stuck on with VHB tape or something else removable? Still got my fingers crossed for that...
  13. Cross Turismo launch color

    I’ll say it’s pretty easy/cheap to build your own using some extruded aluminum and roof bike mounts. I’m sure it would need the prep kit though. Guess we in the US will have to retrofit that somehow.
  14. Cross Turismo launch color

    Well, it's on the German configurator as an option, so let's hope this isn't euro-only and that the mounting points are there on US cars.. full text translated via google: Lockable, collapsible rear bicycle rack for the Taycan Cross Turismo in black (matt) with “PORSCHE” logo and...
  15. Rear bike rack mounts

    Well it looks like I answered my own question. My dealer in CA also thinks this is a european accessory, but mentioned that there are 'ways' to get euro parts over to the US. I snapped a couple photos of the tow hook cover removed, of which there is only one on the passenger side, and there...
  16. Cross Turismo availability in US

    Reserved my 4S today from Porsche Marin. There was 1 allocation for a 4S (I took that one) and 2 for the 4, both for June build dates (August delivery). They confirmed no turbo or turbo S allocations showing up for the year in their system. I don't think that means 100% that there won't be any...
  17. Cross Turismo launch color

    What do you use to lock your bike up? I've always seen the 1UP as risky. Maybe that's because I'm in the bay area where you'll get your windows shattered for leaving a pack of gum in the interior..
  18. Sport Turismo might still be coming?

    This is the perfect car. I hope they announce this before the cross turismo configurations lock so we have the opportunity to switch!
  19. Rear bike rack mounts

    So over in a different cross turismo thread (https://www.taycanforum.com/forum/threads/cross-turismo-launch-color.4118/page-2#post-56984), we’ve discovered that the bike rack on the back of the cross turismo attaches to two mounts under the grille looking plastic above the diffuser. Would anyone...
  20. Cross Turismo launch color

    Yep that looks like a dead ringer for a two point attachment! I suppose I’m not nuts after all
