  1. I am watching the “sh*t show” that EA is live and in person

    No. You need a liquid cooled cable, like some of the chargers in Europe. They are much smaller, yet able to handle the loading because they are actively cooled.

  3. Polestar 2

    What color exterior is that? Looks quite blue.
  4. Polestar 2

    Funny you should post this, as I just saw my second one in person this morning. l have been very interested in the Polestar as I am a former Volvo owner, and general Volvo fan and know people that work for Volvo US. So the idea of the Polestar 2 as a replacement for my Model 3 has always been...
  5. Polestar 2

    No, it's still overpriced once you start adding the options.
  6. Taycan Turbo S vs. Model S Plaid - really by this much!?

    Meh, it's only soft because I didn't present data. I didn't really think I needed to. Look, I'm not saying that Porsche never would have decided to debut the Mission E. Or Rivian. Or Lucid. Or Canoo. Or Mercedes would launch a phalanx of EV's at the Frankfurt Auto show. But if you...
  7. Disaster! Spec missing the one thing I wanted. 🤦🏼😢🤣

    That does look like a bit of a PITA.
  8. Wear on 18-way red upper seat bolster

    I would take the opposite tact, IMO. I'd bring it up now so that the time from new car to issue is shortest and the dealer will have a harder time with the "normal wear and tear" argument. Then again, I've had my local Porsche dealer push back on something that was an obvious issue and call...
  9. Delivery delays

    So what's the consensus on a US order placed today? Or is there one? LOL.
  10. 2021 Karma GS-6S Sport

    Never would. Because besides the updates, you're still left with this body and interior. And it's a disaster.
  11. Taycan Turbo S vs. Model S Plaid - really by this much!?

    Tesla has, in the US, single-handedly created the luxury EV market. Period. They proved it could be viable, they proved that people would pay for an expensive EV and enjoy it. And they did it with a pretty spotty product line. I won't extrapolate this to other parts of the world, but...
  12. Taycan Turbo S vs. Model S Plaid - really by this much!?

    Your labeling anything pro-Tesla as "fanboy nonsense" indiciates just how willing you are to be open in that discussion.
  13. Taycan Turbo S vs. Model S Plaid - really by this much!?

    This is a surprising truth that many people miss.
  14. Disaster! Spec missing the one thing I wanted. 🤦🏼😢🤣

    When I drove your car (thanks again!) I thought the motors had plenty of "real" noise. No need for any artificial enhancements.
  15. Disaster! Spec missing the one thing I wanted. 🤦🏼😢🤣

    IMO, Taycan motor whine is louder than Tesla's and does give some acoustical feedback. This is based on driving about 4-5 models, not owning. And I agree, the sport sound.....it's fun for 5 minutes then it's annoying. There's more than enough drivetrain noise to tell what's going on. If...
  16. Taycan Turbo S vs. Model S Plaid - really by this much!?

    Pal, Troll elsewhere, will you? https://www.msn.com/en-us/autos/other/nhtsa-fines-gm-35-million-over-ignition-switch-issue/ar-AAR3tp https://www.huffpost.com/entry/ford-fined-1735-million-n_b_3732186 https://one.nhtsa.gov/About-NHTSA/Press-Releases/nhtsa_fca_penalty_12102015
  17. Had an interesting chat with some dudes from Lucid test team

    I literally said the test was bad. I have no faith in the institutions. Porsche knew this, and they commissioned the AMCI report which they released the same day the EPA ratings came out. i merely said the test is standardized. you Seem to enjoy twisting other people’s words to make your own...
  18. Had an interesting chat with some dudes from Lucid test team

    What? They most certainly do follow a standardized and verified test protocol. I agree that they are meaningless. But that's because the protocol they follow is adapted from the protocol, almost directly, that they use to test ICE vehicles. It's not representative of how EV's work. Telsa...
  19. Plaid beats Taycan Turbo by 11 seconds around ring... will Porsche respond?

    @daveo4EV's race prep shop went over an early Plaid and noted it was virtually a completely different car underneath. Still, by the looks of the video, it understeers massively. Tires? Alignment? Taycan much more composed.
  20. Plaid beats Taycan Turbo by 11 seconds around ring... will Porsche respond?

    Im really not understanding your point. I’m trying to. You said “I remember when Porsche used to pound around the ring to test”. They still do. You said “this lap record chasing is going to get someone killed”. But it’s not all that unsafe, compared to any other high speed motor event...
