    I’m ok with bugs as long as i know they will be addressed in a timely manner, and I don’t have to live with them for as long as I own the vehicle (it will be my daily driver). I don’t want to start a Porsche vs Tesla discussion, but coming out of a Tesla I was pretty pleased with the way Tesla...

    Geez, this is not good. My Taycan is due at the dealer any day now and every time I read about sw bugs it makes me wonder if I need to let the Taycan model mature a little before I plunk down hard earned cash on a car that might piss me off a lot.

    My Stormtrooper, the personalisation.

    Good job with your mods. I am going to paint my silver painted Mission E’s with body matching Carrera White Metallic automotive urethane base coat/clear coat. My labor is zero cost, might have $150 in the paint. Planning on buying a set of Mission E’s with summer tires from Suncoast while they...

    Vehicle Location: Port Handling - Quality Action

    Things are looking up. Car is out of ‘quality action’ Purgatory and is supposedly on a truck. Porsche system says delivery at dealership today but I’d be surprised if it got here before Monday, especially considering it is the weekend of Independence Day.

    Vehicle Location: Port Handling - Quality Action

    So I called Porsche customer care and a very nice lady looked up my vehicle. She went away and after a pretty long while came back and said that for every shipment some cars are randomly pulled for a quality assurance inspection, and my car was one of them. She said it is scheduled to be...

    Vehicle Location: Port Handling - Quality Action

    The info came from my Sales Advisor‘s computer screen. He took the pictures of the status page and messaged them to me today. Your Sales Advisor can do the same, if he/she is willing to. After Confucius dropped off cars at Davisville this week, the only 2 ships I am aware of that are headed to...

    Vehicle Location: Port Handling - Quality Action

    Stopped by the dealer earlier today and they have no clue what it means. If it’s a software update that is great. But if it is damage in transit that is not good. Wondering if anyone else ever seen this and if so what was the outcome. One possibility is it is to take care of the ground recall...

    My car was dropped off from the Siem Confucius at Davisville yesterday, and the subject line is the current status of the car. Does anyone have an idea what this means? Thanks

    Dealer told me my car is off the ship at Davisville. Things are looking up! Fingers still crossed for delivery the first of the week.

    Any Regrets with the Taycan?

    Wow, that is really weird. Every Porsche I have had had the ability to save stuff to the key. That’s a swing and a miss on a pretty basic function.

    Dealer told me the name of the ship, and car status has been ‘on ship’ for about 2 weeks.

    Very pleased with Turbo S range

    I hope what you experienced is a parts problem that will be rectified soon, however my observation of the EA network tells me what you experienced is common. Stopping at a EA charging site is kinda like going to Vegas and throwing dice. If you are really lucky you will find all chargers...

    I am Charlottesville too and am getting it from Flow. J said by 7/3, and I have a printout confirming that date, but the loss of a day with shipping won’t help that much. I’d say the week of 7/6 is more likely. What are you getting? The red GTS at Flow is mine. Or was....

    New Porsche Taycan vs Tesla Model S - WhatCar?

    Another data point, I traded a relatively new MS for a Taycan. Fit and finish and vampire drain finally did it to me with the MS.

    Good point! I’ll start tracking it more often to remove all doubt :)

    Holy Cow! Confucius is now cruising at 17.7 kts which is the fastest that I have noted on the entire voyage from Emden. Guess the Captain is trying to make up whatever time he/she can.
