    Problems to fix - review after 12K miles

    I also want this fixed. I don't think it's a chip, I think it's just a software bug. The wheel does respond to the preset buttons, for me. What I did as a workaround, when leaving the car: Power off, waiting for the dash animation to complete Press and hold preset 3 which I've configured...

    Regenerative braking finally working

    News to me as well. What I've observed is the first 1-2 stops per day go straight to the brakes, then regen works thereafter.

    Disaster! Spec missing the one thing I wanted. 🤦🏼😢🤣

    FWIW I've gotten a lot of comments and compliments about the sound. At a Porsche meetup: "I wish my Tesla Model 3 at home did that." A friend: "It sounds exactly what I'd expect a car from the future to sound like" etc.

    It's worth having the dealer do it for warranty coverage in case anything goes wrong.

    Another consideration: the ESS might be sought after for resale the same way Sport Chrono and PSE are.

    Definitely worth the build time cost. Maybe not the aftermarket cost though.

    I must be in the minority - I turn on the sport sound every single time I drive.

    Turtle Mode??

    I can't figure out how to do this - I've got it on the "Info" display, and clicking the thumbwheel offers no additional settings. Any ideas?

    Turtle Mode??

    I did not fast charge. I did have it parked in the sun (101F outside) and enabled the climate control 20 mins before I got into the car. Then drove it home as I usually do, floored.

    Yellow turtle drive error

    @PasaDena what was the resolution for your car? I just experienced this for the first time.

    Turtle Mode??

    Today my car had a dramatic loss of power. Not the kind that has been widely reported, but a weird situation where I could floor the accelerator and barely get any power. The yellow turtle icon kept flashing on and off. It is 100F outside today. Is this any kind of normal behavior, or is...

    Update/Recall duration

    Note: Mine was the software recall only, no modules or hardware at all.

    Update/Recall duration

    I insisted on waiting, specifically to avoid my car getting thrown in the queue and taking forever. When they did the job they did warn me that if something went wrong they would have to send me away with a loaner...but in the end they got it done in 3 hours.

    Canceling Trial Porsche Connect Services

    Hey all, I found it - it cannot be done from your vehicle's "services" page. You must use the link to the Porsche Connect store: There are "cancel contract" links in there.

    Advice for considering to buy a lemon/buyback?

    Sounds like a fairly normal Taycan to me. :) - I've had many PCM bugs and issues. - I've seen the occasional weird message on the instrument cluster. - I've had issues enabling Porsche Connect services. In short, the software side of the car is still a little soft in the middle. I don't...
