    Ordered early May. Latest estimate is delivery late next month.

    UK: When did you order and when did (or will) your car arrive?

    I did plump for the full leather in the end, as it just offered that bit more for me or, more accurately, the partial leather was just not quite what I wanted. Some of my options I know I have rationalised purely on the basis of a modest increase in the monthly cost and, very likely, wouldn’t...

    UK: When did you order and when did (or will) your car arrive?

    Thanks Frank, In a way I’m relieved that the spec has finally locked in as I could lose whole days on the configurator trying to fine-tune the specification. As this involved a lease company, the three-handed conversations were slow and excruciating anytime I wanted to do this. I so nearly...

    UK: When did you order and when did (or will) your car arrive?

    Ah, I came up short on the bottle front too. I went for Mamba and I ended up going Vesuvius on the wheels. Now I’ve seen your wheels I’m kicking myself I didn’t go for Aurum. Spec is locked now so I’m committed. I went for old man beige on the interior too - had the same original choice of red...

    UK: When did you order and when did (or will) your car arrive?

    Despite being told of a slip to December (and possibly later) I’ve been told this morning that the build locked down on 2 September and should be with the dealer sometime late October to early November. I wouldn’t have known, however, had I not contacted them to discuss some spec changes...

    Do you daily your Taycan?

    If it ever arrives (yes, first world problems acknowledged, before the proctors leap upon me) then I will daily the bejesus out of it. Gone for a 17500 mile a year lease and I plan to use each and every one of them. Never understood the garage queen phenomenon. A dear friend of mine has a...

    Cool Mamba Green CT Display

    Thanks man, I’ll stay with it for now, although I’m probably going to reduce the lease period due to BiK uncertainty. It’s a numbers game at the heart of it all, no matter how much I’d like to have the car. Beyond a certain tipping point I’ll go back to personal purchase of an AMG or some such...

    Cool Mamba Green CT Display

    I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you! Wonder if the difference is as simple as yours being a Turbo and mine a 4S? Honestly, I think one could go insane trying to fathom out the logic, if any, in the system! I spoke to the supplying dealer‘s business manager and he did his best to downplay any...

    Cool Mamba Green CT Display

    Hi there, Funnily enough I’ve just checked and, as I feared, it’s slipped again. It’s now estimated as being at the dealers early December (was this month, then early Nov and now this). Updates are a little hard to come by as it’s via a lease company so I’m not directly party to the contract...

    Cool Mamba Green CT Display

    That’s just lovely. Not far off my spec which, should it be built before my inevitable decline into round-the-clock care and puréed food, I am beyond excited about receiving.

    Good Taycan Cross Turismo review by Porsche Chester

    Just goes to show, we’re all different and there are no wrong choices (I know, I know). I loved the contrast of the crayon (chalk in the USA) with the black trim but felt it a little too white and austere for me. If the contrasts had been the same for the chalk (limestone beige in the USA - why...

    Good Taycan Cross Turismo review by Porsche Chester

    Nice review, if a little more of a sales pitch than a purely objective review (not surprising, of course, as it’s from a Porsche Centre). For me, it was good to see that interior in much more detail as I’ve ordered that and it’s really put my mind at ease regarding my choice.

    UK: When did you order and when did (or will) your car arrive?

    Ordered CT4S early May. Delivery expected late October (with healthy dose of apprehension as to the likelihood of that being accurate).

    Ionity network gets a roasting from VW CEO

    I’d certainly be interested in a bit more info, if you’ve the time. I plan to go to the continent a lot when mine arrives, subject to the vagaries of the weird world we currently live in. Thanks!

    Porsche Norwich Showroom has Mamba Green CT

    And worth every penny. Said the man who’s getting the same wheels in Vesuvius Grey…. Popping over this afternoon to have a look at it. It’s nigh on my spec externally too so it’ll be good to see it in the metal. Might just allay those slight flutters I have about choosing Mamba.

    Porsche Norwich Showroom has Mamba Green CT

    I understand the Porsche Centre here has just taken delivery of their showroom car in Mamba green. Kismet for me as that’s the colour I’ve ordered and have yet to see in the flesh!
