    Had an interesting chat with some dudes from Lucid test team

    Nobody reports the actual number that matters for that, CdA, they just report Cd, which tells you about nothing, unless you are comparing 2 cars with identical front surface area.

    Google Phasing Out Android Auto App

    Yeah, that app is for people that don't have AA in the head unit, and nobody uses it, because it restricts what you can do with your phone.

    Dipping n/s mirror when reversing

    Someone better than me will link the docs from the Good to Know app, but I think the procedure is put in reverse, adjust mirror where you want it, and put back in P. The car will then go to the assigned position when you out it in R.

    [US EVSE] - Wow they couldn’t have made it any easier…

    It's a lot more flexible to install an outlet, because you can plug different EVSE in there later if you want to upgrade. Or if you need to run something else you can unplug the EVSE. Only point of hardwiring is if you want more than a 50A circuit.

    Had an interesting chat with some dudes from Lucid test team

    I've used the Barstow chargers 4 times on Bay Area to Vegas road trips. I wouldn't use the front ones, because they are 150kW, and more likely to have other cars parked next to the spots.

    Had an interesting chat with some dudes from Lucid test team

    The Lucid Air (like the Model S) is an EQS (or S-class) competitor. I still don't understand cross shopping a Taycan with either. Fortunately, there will eventually be EV versions of everything, and people can go back to buying a Porsche because it's a Porsche, and not because it's an EV...

    Advice for considering to buy a lemon/buyback?

    You'll want to check out what insurance will be like for a car with a branded title. I can't see spending >$100k on a car with a branded title, unless you were planning on completely modding it anyway.

    Two Speed EV transmission a good idea?

    If you're in Normal mode, and you didn't floor it, the transmission was in 2nd the whole time anyway? Race cars don't have to live through a warranty program. Less weight, but lower expected lifetime is easily a tradeoff a race car would take.

    Two Speed EV transmission a good idea?

    For cars that need to be quick off the line and be able to drive on the autobahn, yes, a few gears is a good idea. If the Taycan had a 3rd gear for like 120mph+, it's have a much higher V-Max.

    Taycan possibly no longer eligible for tax rebate under new proposal?

    This is untrue. GM decreased the effective price of the Bolt via a rebate when the incentive ran out, and Tesla has lowered prices similarly.

    Taycan possibly no longer eligible for tax rebate under new proposal?

    Tesla has been supply constrained, even after the incentive went away. They would've sold plenty of cars without it. Early Model S buyers weren't buying because of the incentive (especially given the car was still $30k more than anything comparable, given how shitty the interior was and lack...

    Taycan possibly no longer eligible for tax rebate under new proposal?

    Yes, if you are under the income limit and buy a car under the MSRP limit. Since Tesla isn't unionized, they wont get the full credit. More importantly, this is FAR from a passed law, so it's likely to change a bunch. I don't see a way that there isn't a new incentive that will help GM and...

    Taycan possibly no longer eligible for tax rebate under new proposal?

    Car manufacturers will optimize for the cutoff price. Lower prices mean way more people can afford it. There’s lots of ways to use $7500 to address climate change that are likely much better than giving it to me to buy a car I would’ve anyway. If the rebate gates your decision in the US, then...

    Taycan possibly no longer eligible for tax rebate under new proposal?

    The limit should be $40k. Nobody should get a tax break to buy a $200k Porsche. Same should’ve been true for Tesla, Audi, Jaguar, etc.

    Which option did you have the hardest time reaching a decision?

    Wheel color (I went with platinum over black) was probably the hardest choice. My first option out was the rear climate controls. I had to draw the line somewhere, and that was it. No one would ever use it, but I still would like it for the geek factor. :P

    Taycan Newbie Questions

    CarPlay is way better than having built-in Spotify, etc. For Waze if no other reason. Your dealer should be able to show you wheels on cars in person. For all sorts of options questions, I'd hope your dealer could show you cars with some of those things so you can see. If you really have a...

    Huge demand for Taycan causing wait to stretch to 6 months

    Tri Motor Taycan plans?

    Porsche never was the drag strip 0-60 brand anyway. Folks aren’t spending $120k+ on a C2S thinking they are the fastest. You buy a Porsche based on how it makes you feel, not some internet bench racing spec sheet. Pretty much every Mustang GT was probably quicker than either of my R8’s...

    Tri Motor Taycan plans?

    They aren’t going to make a Taycan that’s faster than a 911.
