    Differences between Turbo and Turbo S?

    And those are the reasons you are getting a Taycan and I am not. Different things important to some but not others. For me just too many ICE cars for the price I want more and with less perceived hassle. IMO That is why the electrics are not putting the ICE cars out of business in the near...

    Differences between Turbo and Turbo S?

    Dealing with range, finding charging stations locally and on longer trips, less room for passengers, less room for stuff, all instruments are screen oriented (going through different screens to find the item you want vs pressing button). These come to mind immediately but I had thought of others.

    Differences between Turbo and Turbo S?

    I had been planning to buy the Taycan Turbo S as a replacement for my Pano Turbo S which is my DD. But the more I got into particulars, it seemed that it would just be more hassle on a daily basis than I wanted to deal with. I like the Pano as a DD pretty drama free, fast, fair mileage (19 city...

    Differences between Turbo and Turbo S?

    Your probably write, but the car (Turbo S) I spec'd for myself ran close to $220k before tax/license. When I ended up actually kicking the tires and seeing the Taycan Turbo S, I decided there were just a whole lot of ICE cars for that kind of money I liked w/o all the hassle of an electric. So...

    2020 Taycan 4S Reviews Are Here! (Articles & Videos)

    Dee - I don't know what Panamera you are driving but my 2015 Turbo S gets about 500 miles range on road trips (depending on speed – more if I drive slower) but at 75/80+mph I get that kind of range. So I am afraid i must take a big exception to your comment about range on the Panamera. I drive...

    Couple of questions about spec

    There is a thread about Alcantara on the steering wheel in the Ferrarichat form and the general consensus from those who had it, was that it did not wear well so likely not good for a car that is going to be a DD.:confused:

    Differences between Turbo and Turbo S?

    [ It seems to me the Turbo S is more of a "bragging rights issue" or marketing ploy to counter the Tesla Model S 0-60 speed rather than a really useful function. Especially since the boost is only available in launch mode. :rolleyes: It doesn't bother me that the Tesla S is a few hundreds of...

    Differences between Turbo and Turbo S?

    Yeah, I have done some builds on both models and have found this to be the case. I had originally been leaning at the onset for the Turbo S but the range (on both) was a big disappointment for me now I see the range is better on the Turbo which is more important to me than having the fastest...

    Taycan charges from 5% to 80% in 22 minutes at 270kw (using Electrify America charger)

    Has anyone seen a more detailed map of the So Cal area - Santa Barbara, Ventura, LA and Orange Counties or have a link where I could go to view one? The shorter range than promised has my "range anxiety" peeked. That was one of my main concerns at the onset but when promised 300 miles I was...

    Porsche confirms cheaper Taycan models coming by year end

    I get, it the top end models have the most profit which is important to the "bean counters" to start recouping R&D expense ASAP. Also the top end models help selling the lower end models for those who want a look alike for much less $$$$.

    Tesla Model S crushes Taycan’s Nürburgring time

    Sound like a marketing ploy to me. No question the prototype is fast but there is not really any comparison - neither test is official and only one is a production model. Additionally the red faster Tesla broke down so reliably is also in question. I am sorry but I can’t get too excited about...

    Porsche confirms cheaper Taycan models coming by year end

    Are sure your sales rep still works there? My sales rep has contracted me several times and I have contacted him several times as well.

    Members Say Hello Here!

    Thanks for the info. Thats $215k in the US, you might be better off getting the Turbo S as many of the options are included in the Turbo S base price, did you try both trim levels? Perhaps there is a price differential for the Taycan in Europe? The US base price for the Turbo is $150k and the...

    If you don't mind saying what was the final price with all the options in euros (exchange $.9028 to 1 euro? I priced out a Taycan Turbo at $180k+ and a Turbo S at $202k+ with similar the options I currently have on my Panamera Turbo S. Quite a bit higher than I had expected. That’s the same...

    OK, I am envious that you about the special tickets, you must be a VIP at least with your local dealer. Please report back your impressions, it is refreshing to get opinions of those w/o any spin. So often even reviewing “third” party magazines (press) have a vested interest and are not reliable...

    Members Say Hello Here!

    I am in a similar position as yourself, same deposit down. I also am pleased with the looks and most specs of the final production model BUT my concern is the smaller range than promised (500k/300 miles vs 240 miles now advertised) as well as the price which was originally suggested. I am...

    So, This Is A Bit Disappointing For Us Early Adopters...

    Your response is so weak, it and you are laughable. I am very amused and find you banal comments most entertaining keep up the good work.

    Get a life! Your language and comments leave much to be desired and add little content.. If you don't want to hear the waling don't tune in. This is a pretty much free flow forum and it seems most everyones comments are at least civil. Not sure anyone cares much what you think in any event.

    My Local Dealership Might Be Stretching The Truth A Bit....

    The original Mission E advertising literature had the 300 mile range and the 80% charging statements. Many of the folks including put $$$ down based partly based on those statements. That may only be the top end trim “turbo” but I think Porsche is committed to those parameters and would be...
