    Oops. Haha. That is quite the typo. Yes you are right. Will correct in thread above

    Review of first 1000 miles Taycan RWD (all options ranked)

    My sense is that on freeway if you just want some help to manage traffic in jams in freeway you are probably fine with just ACC (Adapative Cruise Control) and innodrive just gets in the way. Olea leather is the Porsche top of the line. Pretty sure their standard leather is great. I selected...

    For where I am I do not need to charge at home and the cost of redoing electrical and installing to have optimized charging is simply not worth it when I am 2 minutes away from a super charger. But happy to give you a great price on an unused Porsche connect if you want one 😜

    I have just ordered a Model Y (without FSD) so will report back on comparing with Tesla base auto-pilot later but I have driven Tesla a few times and the philosophy is completely different. In Tesla case the car is driving you whereas innodrive is guiding you to be the better pilot. You are...

    Review of first 1000 miles Taycan RWD (all options ranked)

    Yeah I hear you. I was so close to not taking it and I now feel it really adds to long trips and mixed driving modes (chill following other cars on winding road or uphill where it is nice to not keep foot on accelerator). It is a really interesting feeling to have such constant speed that a «...

    The fridge is the “cool bag” on the configurator under the accessories. $210. Love it. There is 5 ultra fast (350h) EA charging stations at a Yosemite Westgate Lodge 15 miles from park entrance. We stayed at Rush Creek Lodge that is nearby (and was great) Many charge points and other slower...

    Review of first 1000 miles Taycan RWD (all options ranked)

    Hi guys, I thought I would share my experience of first couple of weeks with my Taycan. Went on an epic road trip to Yosemite. Months of reading through this forum had me a little worried about potential issues with 12v batteries, PCM, electrify America… but here was my experience: 1/this...

    The journey begins

    I picked up my Taycan yesterday and I wanted to just take a moment to thank the amazing community of this forum. There is no way I could have sorted out the pros and cons of each option without the dedicated members here. Here is my first photo. So happy.

    Porsche recalls 43K Taycan and Cross Turismo due to possible powertrain shutdown / loss of power

    I am picking up my Taycan a couple weeks but it was produced 5+ weeks ago. Does anyone know what are the numbers I am looking for (and where do I find them) to know I am getting the car fully up to date?

    12V issue strikes another one

    Haha i got to reading through step 12 of @daveo4EV excellent step by step “fix it yourself”... and then went back to your and his recommendation that is: “call Porsche”. Fingers crossed this is fixed by the time I get mine. Thanks @Crazycanuck !

    12V issue strikes another one

    There are now so many threads related to this issue and I cannot find the recommended home fix. Is there an easy 12 V jump start kit one can buy and leave in the car in case this occurs? I would be grateful if someone here could point me to how one can fix this without going to a Porsche...

    12V issue strikes another one

    Man, I am so sorry for you. How incredibly frustrating. I am baffled that this known issue that has been going on for so long now has yet to be addressed. We should be in recall territory. I figured that recent deliveries would not have this problem, I am now getting concerned as I do not have...

    New Technology package

    Yes possible it is included. Pretty insane they do such a poor job explaining and no definitive answer that I can find on the web. I have asked dealership but in my experience this Forum is way more savvy and knowledgeable than Porsche ambassadors!

    New Technology package

    ahh - you may have identified the reason - very strange compromise... I would indeed agree that LCA is more valuable and real safety feature. I wonder why Porsche is pushing the "active parking" that in my experience is never that good and always prefer parking myself

    New Technology package

    To clarify: the primary reason for the “discount” is not on the individual items but actually because, although not specified, Adaptive Cruise Control is also included and that is "worth" 2k USD:

    New Technology package

    The change in the configuration tool (US) with the new technology package seems to provide a 2k USD discount vs the individual options. But strangely when selected one gets the parking assist (along with HUD and passenger display) but removes the lane change assist that can no longer be selected...

    Another World Record for Taycan: Sets Indoor Speed Record @ 102 MPH

    They really are finding some weird ones. Very Tesla like of Porsche to go after these. Must drive Elon crazy. This one (fastest indoor run) does look cool and is short to look at:
