    Is it just me, or did your Taycan come with an unrequested, always-on tracking device called StarGard?

    That is kinda the sales pitch, there is a single item that they offer which may be free or of little cost to you. It is an icebreaker to initiate the discussion of additional purchases during the finance process. For my Taycan, here at Porsche Hawaii, the icebreaker is "free key replacement"...

    Is it just me, or did your Taycan come with an unrequested, always-on tracking device called StarGard?

    My 992 came pre-loaded with LoJack from my dealer (Porsche Riverside) in CA. When I reviewed the vehicle sales contract, I saw it on there and informed the dealer that I did not need LoJack, as Porsche Connect already has GPS location services and they told me they would not charge me for it...

    Thank you for sharing. I am not sure about the laws in your state, but where I live if the vehicle is in service for greater than 30 days, it can be considered a claim under the lemon law. Have you consulted an attorney? Thy typically will take a lemon law case on a contingency. Vehicle...

    Is it just me, or did your Taycan come with an unrequested, always-on tracking device called StarGard?

    It's a dealer added option to make additional $$ from you at finance. Essentially the company (StarGard) installs the theft protection device at the dealer during, or shortly after the PDI inspection. The dealer justifies this add-on as "inventory protection" while the car is on their lot...

    Car stuck at port for four weeks. Porsche has no info. Speculate on reason?

    Ask your sales ambassador to pull up your order screen. My car sat in San Diego port for a few weeks under a quality action hold (the code for my car was related to a software update). Everything related to the production to the delivery of the vehicle has a code associated with each action...

    Taycan Maintenance Schedule

    If anyone here on this forum has owned a Porsche (or any other car) in that last and believes that "rotating the tires" is the only service required, they are truly mistaken. First off, you do not even rotate the tires on a Taycan, as the fronts and rears are of different size. (probably just...

    Hopelessly confused by power requirements of Porsche mobile charger

    You can, as long as the pigtail has the X,Y,Z to X,Y,W lined up correctly. Is it possible to post a picture of your wall receptacle? I think this may be the configuration you are looking for. I read that in this type of situation, many will install a "buck boost" transformer to cover the 3...

    Small weekend project for my incoming Taycan RWD

    The evening is kind of slow so I thought I would share a few details surrounding yesterday's project of fitting OEM Porsche center caps to my Vorsteiner VFF-109 wheels. While most Porsche models are equipped with 75mm center caps, to include the plain jane 19” wheels that we ordered our car...
