    the steering wheel is an abomination…100% agree - it will get dealt with in due time.

    Scared to ask... anyone tempted by Model S Plaid?

    it's NOT just one more motor - this is a huge deal in terms of what sort of power delivery and torque vectoring can be done to improve handling and stability - independent motor control to the left and right rear wheels allows them to virtualize a mechanical differential - differentials and the...

    what other vehicle has dual rear motors for independent torque vectoring and 1000 hp? I’m just curious what you consider normal tech?

    @Viv S how long your Taycan will take to charge at home depends on how many miles you drive a day. without that information this is all teeth nashing

    if the Taycan is nearly empty and you are charging at home and you did not specify the 19.2 kW option it could take 9 hours to charge your Taycan at home - there is _NO_ way around that FACT. Residential electrical systems do NOT have the capacity to charge the Taycan any faster but keep in...

    you're still limited by what sort of home AC circuit you can install home - residential DCFast chargers top out at 100 amp circuits just like the AC ones - a home charger isn't going to charge any faster than the 19.2 kW version of the Taycan. @Viv S is overthinking the EV charging duration -...

    the fastest you can charge at home is 6 hour for an empty Taycan - but you'll need to do the following: option the 19.2 kW charging option on the Taycan having an electrician install a 100 amp circuit into your garage purchase a 19.2 kW EV Charger (ClipperCreek $2195) keep in mind you rarely...

    warning Tesla hater fact immune alert who can’t acknowledge any factual Tesla good points cause of blind rage. I’m an equal opportunity fan boy - I can love my Taycan and still acknowledge Tesla making progress in the automotive world - and at the moment Porsche has no competitive offering in...

    https://www.motortrend.com/cars/tesla/model-s/2021/2022-tesla-model-s-plaid-first-test-review/ I think we’re gathering enough data that the Model S Plaid is NOT the Model S - cabin noise, build quality and handeling are greating improved, and the vehicle has some stamina - and is...

    PMCC - Overheated

    @Viv S ummm - for home charging - the 150 kW charging option has no effect - it’s only purpose is for DCFast charger at public/commerical fastDC charging stations that you may or may not encounter in the wild…the general consensus is you are unlikely to encounter a public charger in north...

    plaid doesn’t change how excellent Taycan is - just means we can’t laugh and point quite as much at others 😝 plaid owners it would appear will have quite a car also.

    Scared to ask... anyone tempted by Model S Plaid?

    I think we can say with confidence - Porsche will not get away with their standard 7 year refresh cycle - the Taycan is going to look very very long in the tooth in 2023…vs. changes coming fast and frurious down the pike… I love me some competition - it makes it better for all of us…more choice...

    btw: every one here welcome to still not like the styling or tesla or elon - but I’m just requesting we don’t go in on this based on our previous opinions/experiences with the previous Model S product - it’s apparent to me mechanically the new Model S is mechanically different and the 3 motor...

    Scared to ask... anyone tempted by Model S Plaid?

    yeah - I was expecting the same thing - and so was my Owner/Mechanic/racer friend/vendor - but he’s blow away by the Plaid - and he was never impressed with the S beyond it’s 0-60 number - nothing else worked for him. we’ll need more data - I’m simply cautioning people not to assume plaid is...

    Scared to ask... anyone tempted by Model S Plaid?

    yeah I would agree - and I’m holding out for my own test drive - but I”m simply cautioning people while the exterior may be very similar or identical - this vehicle is mechanically NOT a Model S in any way shape or form - if Model S is 1.0, and Model 3 is 2.0, this is 3.0 with the old 1.0 body…...
