    Rare spotting in the U.K. (considering dealers are still closed!) - looks fresh off the transporter

    So Cal has plenty of towns that do the same. Santa Barbara, Manhattan Beach, Del Mar just to name a few. Personally I've never drilled a hole in a Porsche to display a plate; never will. I use a tow hook plate holder to "prove correction", then go home and remove it, and await the next time...

    Rattle/vibration from upper door

    Don't pull anything apart! The kind of thing Porsche will fix, for sure, as they should. They don't want stories of rattles and buzzes from their super silent car floating around.

    New taycan 40 thousand questions

    This is a cable for the Taycan provided by Porsche. My sales rep tossed it to me one day, so I have not looked at pricing or availability. It is heavy duty (well made) and is a permanent fixture in my Taycan. It comes in the cool little box, is a USB-C cable with built in adapters for iPhone...

    Electrify America to switch to a pay by kWh charging model

    Gregg, the app Porsche told me to get is called Charging America (downloaded from the App Store). It will activate the Electrify America chargers and Porsche will cover the first 30 minutes of the session. The remainder of the cost (if you roll on past 30 min) will be billed to your My Porsche...

    New Porsche Owner needs help with Homelink

    Thanks for posting this!! Just got it to work after resigning myself to carrying the remote in the car. I went ahead and passed it along to my sales rep, as he too hadn't figured it out yet. And on we go.... Cheers

    Electrify America to switch to a pay by kWh charging model

    When I first started charging at Electrify America in January, Porsche had their 30 min. free deal offered, but the Porsche App to facilitate connecting to EA wasn't yet working. I simply paid cash and kept track of each charge session. I put them all on a spreadsheet and have turned it in to my...

    Panoramic roof - benefit you driver

    If all you get is the glass roof and end up hating it, you could always darken it with window tint film. The options are wide. Personally I didn’t expect to like it, but ended up having no problem with it at all. It’s well tinted, reflects heat very well, and let’s in light. It is (like all...

    Has anyone outside of the East Coast received their 4S yet? I'm Pissed (not COVID-19 related).

    (West Coast), my local dealership received their first 4S on Monday. It is a customer ordered car. First one they've seen. They've sold their demo Turbo they got in December, have one more customer Turbo in the "back" awaiting delivery. Mine was their first and only (so far) Turbo S from right...

    How can we help Porsche to improve?

    Thank you for the diligence and hard work that went into your presentation. It is truly wonderful, and I can only hope that it plants a seed at Porsche AG. I encourage everyone to pass this along to the dealerships and sales reps you have worked with. The squeaky wheel gets the grease, as they...

    Mid-corona update: my Turbo S is coming! [Update: now delivered!!]

    Interesting fact about doing bodywork on the Taycan... Porsche has to disconnect the 800V system, then of course re-connect it and then re-calibrate the rear sensors (in your case). That runs close to $4K here. Eventually the insurance companies will become aware of these (not usual) costs and...

    Mid-corona update: my Turbo S is coming! [Update: now delivered!!]

    I hope when you rise Sunday morning that you focus on the fun you had before the crash. How many miles did you manage before this happened? Hopefully a whole tide you over until it's back. I have real empathy for how that feels. Sometime I'll tell the tale of my own misadventure in my...

    Mid-corona update: my Turbo S is coming! [Update: now delivered!!]

    Oh NO! I'm so sorry to hear that. What a horrible experience to have on your first day. (Your loaner car is nice. I have both, so I know just how nice.) Keep us posted on the repair, and know that this too will become a distant memory (and a good story).

    Porsche Taycan Turbo S the quirks and all - Nick Murray

    Sorry, a bit slow on the uptake. I drive in normal mode quite a bit so I have no issues with the dropping into 1st gear at slow speeds. I have only rarely noticed it. I drive my 911 with it in manual shift mode and use 1st gear routinely, so no big deal for me. Getting in and out of the Taycan...

    Software Update at the Porsche Center

    As beautifully as this car performs, I'm in no hurry to get it updated. The dealership has only the Service Dept. working, and with a skeleton crew at that. Plenty of time to attend to updates once we come out of this pandemic insanity. Think I'll just drive, and love it as is.

    Clear Side Markers

    There is a single screw behind the light. It's a Torx T15, you'll have to turn the wheel to get room, but its fairly easy. Once the screw is out the light slides back and out just enough to get a finger in to release the electrical plug. Install is the reverse. Little tough to get a finger...

    Clear Side Markers

    Perfect timing, about to die of boredom, UPS drops off the Clear Fender Markers!! At last something (else) to do all by myself! Easy to do really, just the one screw. This is coming together! Ceramic window tint on Tuesday, medium, not too dark, and now the clear fender marker lights!
