  1. Day after purchasing Taycan 4S Electrical system error and bricked car in the middle of the highway.

    Well, I canceled my 4S order. Everyone has their own tolerance, which I respect, but I personally cannot get comfortable with an issue that goes to the fundamental control and operation of the car. The car I ordered will arrive at the Baltimore port next week on the Bishu Highway carrier. If...
  2. NHTSA investigating Taycan power loss issue

    The statement Porsche gave to cnet's Roadshow is interesting in light of forum members saying Porsche has informed their service technicians it has identified the cause as a data overload and a software update cures it. Why cast doubt on this with the "if it turns out to be real" bit. I also...
  3. Porsche Dashcam Installed - Review and Overview for US Taycan Owners

    Thanks for the very detailed overview. Are you sure the camera is not intended to be fitted on the left side of the mirror? Apart from the UK, Ireland, Cyprus and Malta, the rest of Europe, including Germany, has left side steering wheels like the USA. It sounds like it does not matter...
  4. Track Your Dream Inconsistencies

    Are you sure your car is not on this boat?
  5. Taycan delivery tracking

    Track Your Dream popped up on my account on Friday. Very relieved. Oddly, the status on the homepage of My Porsche says the car is in stage 2 - scheduled for production but Track Your Dream says production was completed on May 6 and the car is on its way to Emden port: My Porsche home page...
  6. Ordering/Discounts

    It's really hard to generalize across states or regions of the country but I am in the Philly area and got 5% off MSRP for a 4S order I placed in mid-April that is in production right now. I am pretty sure this isn't due to my negotiating skills; an auto broker I spoke with who deals with...
  7. Taycan delivery tracking

    I discovered today after weeks of waiting in vain for the track your dream welcome email that the dealer submitted the order with a typo in the email address. That's been fixed but Track the Dream is still missing - there's no activation email and the My Porsche site is completely blank...
  8. ParkAssist Reverse v ParkAssist Surround?

    When I select Surround View on the USA configurator, an indent that looks like the iPhone notch appears on the top edge of the license plate: I assume that's the rear Surround View camera. Since a rear camera is required by law in the USA, even without Surround View, there is always a rear...
  9. Home Chargers - ClipperCreek or ChargePoint?

    They flagged I hadn't ordered the PMCC during the order review but said nothing about the new Wall Charger Connect. Personally, even if they had, I wouldn't have been interested - don't you need the 19.2 kW option to use the Wall Charger at its full capacity and that option isn't available in...
  10. Home Chargers - ClipperCreek or ChargePoint?

    I see what you're saying about the ClipperCreek: Compared to the ChargePoint:
  11. Home Chargers - ClipperCreek or ChargePoint?

    Appreciate the thoughts @daveo4EV. Your posts about charging on the forums have been invaluable. I thought I would keep the Taycan's Mobile Charger Plus in the trunk and use that as the traveling charger. Not a good idea? Here are some pics from another outdoor install that one of the...
  12. Home Chargers - ClipperCreek or ChargePoint?

    Thanks for the comments and feedback, they are all very helpful. I had been leaning toward a 14-50 install outdoors so I could take the charging unit with me when I move and then put it in the garage at the new location. The garage setup at the current house is tight and awkward and would...
  13. Home Chargers - ClipperCreek or ChargePoint?

    After much research and reading the many informative posts on this forum, I have settled on an outdoor installation of either the ClipperCreek HCS-50P or ChargePoint Home Flex unit. I think I have educated myself to understand the technical specs of the units, including that the ChargePoint can...
  14. RWD driving experience

    @mandoyoda Your impressions of the RWD with air suspension are very interesting. I test drove a RWD with steel coils and was a little let down by its ride - it wasn't bad but it didn't have the effortless solidity of a 4S that I also drove. I thought air suspension on the RWD would make the...
  15. MSRP Dealers (selling Taycan with no price mark-up)

    I am about to submit a 4S custom order with 5% off. It was painless to get - I mentioned an auto broker was able to submit an order with a 5% discount at another dealership and the dealer matched. I think I could have gotten another percent or two, maybe more, if I pressed or shopped around...
  16. I don’t have surround view!

    I see your point but both the OP and another member wrote the Surround View only gave them front and back camera views: Maybe I have misunderstood this but shouldn't they get two side camera views as well in order to get the fixed 4-camera Surround View? Part of the issue here is that the...
  17. I don’t have surround view!

    It's not borderline, it is straight up false advertising. The surround view info bubble on the USA site shows this: It clearly and explicitly states you get a 360 degree surround view with this feature, no qualification that it's only available with auto parking. And the info blurb is the...
  18. RWD Test Drive Yet?

    i drove a RWD with steel spring suspension today at Porsche Main Line in the Philly area today. A couple RWD cars arrived at the dealership in the morning. It definitely drives differently from the 4S I drove a couple weeks ago - the suspension has a huge impact. I thought the 4S was...
  19. Activating Smartlift ?

    I also would like to know if the RWD Taycan has Smart Lift. In the USA, there is no separate option to add Smart Lift to the RWD model. The standard equipment list for the 2021 Taycan 4S mentions Smart Lift as being part of the standard "Adaptive Air Suspension incl. Porsche Active Suspension...
