    Porsche Taycan 4S - Circuit of the Americas 2:43 lap - Edward Doan

    Finally got photos from the track day photographer. The Taycan is pretty (maybe not as pretty as a winged GT3!) I did have enough pace to catch a 718 GT4 in the corners and get a point-by! :)

    Software Update Has New Features for 2020 Taycans

    Ditto here -- I was surprised to see currently playing song / artist disappear from the sat radio list after the MY20 software update.

    Moving from a 911 to a Taycan?

    I have plenty of tread life left in the tire for street driving after 17 laps. It probably won't hold up for another track weekend -- such is the price of a heavy vehicle!

    Moving from a 911 to a Taycan?

    I came from a 997.2 6 speed manual, and in my first HPDE session at COTA with my Taycan 4S, I matched my PR. Here's a video of one of the laps: The Taycan 4S is a vastly superior daily driver compared to the 997.2. On a track, you definitely feel the weight. I don't know if I could go back to...

    Porsche Taycan 4S - Circuit of the Americas 2:43 lap - Edward Doan

    @daveo4EV Great videos! Robb definitely has an efficient line. His turn-in points at COTA T11, T12, and T15 are much earlier apex than I've been taught, but it's possible that's the difference between a pro and what's taught to an amateur! The input traces are similar to what I've been between...

    Porsche Taycan 4S - Circuit of the Americas 2:43 lap - Edward Doan

    UGH, bummer about the travel plans. But I am envious that you've got a Taycan and GT3 AND travel to racetracks around the country -- that's on my "someday" bucket list. :)

    Porsche Taycan 4S - Circuit of the Americas 2:43 lap - Edward Doan

    This is how most of my track day looked: It was a bit like going to Disney World ... long waits in between short bursts of thrills! :CWL:

    Porsche Taycan 4S - Circuit of the Americas 2:43 lap - Edward Doan

    @daveo4EV SWEET video!! Were you ever in Austin, or did you visit with the GT3 for a track event? I'm always entertained watching the line other people take. I missed not being able to throttle steer like a RWD car, and the overlap between regen and mechanical brakes made it hard to get the...

    Attended Taycan Roadshow Austin

    I went to the Taycan Roadshow hosted by PCNA at the Driveway Austin racetrack this past Friday. Although aimed at prospective Taycan buyers, it was great to meet with very knowledgeable folks from PCNA to talk about the Taycan. Several Porsche Track Experience instructors were also on hand for...

    Porsche Taycan 4S - Circuit of the Americas 2:43 lap - Edward Doan

    @daveo4EV my first session was 6 laps, including the first out lap on cold tires. By the 6th lap (i.e. 5th hot lap), I hit 131 degrees and it was break time. I consumed ~9% per lap. Computer showed 1.1 kWh/mile, which is about right given COTA's 3.4 mile length. Closest DC charger was 8 miles...

    Porsche Taycan 4S - Circuit of the Americas 2:43 lap - Edward Doan

    This was one of my fastest laps yesterday. My 2020 Porsche Taycan 4S (with Performance Battery Plus) is my first EV. I have previously owned two Porsches -- a 2009 911 Carrera and 2018 Macan. This track day was hosted by the Hill Country Region chapter of the Porsche Club of America (PCA HCR)...

    Taycan software update - reported problems post update

    Is yours a white one with Sport Design fascia and Mission E wheels? If so, I saw it at Porsche Austin on Thursday 4/8. My 2020 Taycan 4S received its software update successfully (waited 2 days, took another 2 days for the update.) But I heard the car after mine (the white one) was not waking up...
