    Does Taycan 4s/Taycan have the same acceleration performance as Taycan Turbo?

    Sweet spot on Turbo was actually Porsche’s own words, I read somewhere. But I think you’re right believing that GTS will overtake that statement. It’s a good chance it might become their most popular electric model when it finally arrives. Either way, all the models in the Taycan range is...

    Base model Taycan announced.

    As you surely know this whole thread is about the last member in the Taycan family with RWD announced in China only, and not about the whole Taycan family launched way back in several countries. The rest of my statement about the fundamental, and politics if you like, can hardly be disproved...

    Base model Taycan announced.

    Thanks Ron for informative, interesting and detailed articles about the Taycan RWD :like: Should have been launched and made available worldwide for all markets simultaneously though. In any case and of respect, one should expect that it does not come at the expense of pending orders for...

    Base model Taycan announced.

    I don't mind cars being sold in China as well as the rest of the world, but I do mind that CCP is given priority before democratic western countries that nurtured the whole industry in the first place. This kind of marketing on so called ´China first politics´ say a lot about the unfortunate...

    'Standard' leather vs. Olea leather?

    Here's some fresh photos taken yesterday, of a Turbo with comfort seats and Olea leather:

    Taycan Turbo vs Turbo S Comparison Review - Better Than 911 Turbo S! [TheStraightPipes]

    I checked today on a Turbo, and I confirm the airstream from the wheels are blocked. It's difficult to see with the naked eye, without going close up or using a flashlight. Despite it's not functional as I hoped for, I must admit that design looks good even though. Then again, as mentioned...

    Does Taycan 4s/Taycan have the same acceleration performance as Taycan Turbo?

    It is true that the Turbo S and Turbo have equal horsepower, but torque is different. Though as known, Turbo S has more horsepower with launch control. Either way, the difference is not huge and both give you butterflies in your stomach like on a roller coaster. I noticed in the video that...

    'Standard' leather vs. Olea leather?

    I also went for the Olea leather, but still follow Tyler on his view here. I don't think it will make a huge difference, when standard leather definitely also is of good Porsche quality as usual. The most obvious difference, except for a slightly different patina over time, is that Olea has this...

    My Stormtrooper, the personalisation.

    Came to think about something regarding the StarWars stormtrooper from the Porsche comercial: Those white helmet soldiers are the elite shock troops, or space marines if you like, of the Galactic Empire under leadership of Emeperor Palapatine herunder Darth Vader & co (equal to the bad guys)...

    Ceramic coating noob questions

    @Scandinavian Thanks! Then I pretty much have an idea of your total cost on PPF. Your solution sounds like a perfect protection match for the Taycan. Maybe I'll go another round myself before I make the final conclusion for my own Porsche. As you say; not cheap - but we'll be worth it. At least...

    Ceramic coating noob questions

    Thank you for the support and your input, which I appreciate! I have also seen what an unexperienced installer can do to the paint, and I certainly will not trust anyone near my new Porsche with something sharp unless they know what they´re doing. So, you are absolutely right the experience of...

    My Stormtrooper, the personalisation.

    The StarWars-fan grand kids must be on another planet, you taking them for a ride in the Porsche and switching over to the spaceship sound from the Taycan ‘motor’ simultaneous taking off with launch controls - huh? ;) Guess you must be a popular grandad!

    My Stormtrooper, the personalisation.

    It all looks great, I must say - nice touch indeed. Thanks for sharing! I also have been thinking of an workaround to the large license plates we are forced to use here in Europe. It is a somewhat violent against the gorgeous Porsche front. I’ve attached screenshots from YouTube, of a smaller...

    You missed the point! Those companies sure don't make money on the new developed Wuhan virus. It has surprisingly a great build though . . .

    First of all, I posted my statement because I mean to much of world production moves to China – which I am much against. Firstly it´s about PRC lack of human rights, secondly because communism and totalitarian closed regime, thirdly because lost jobs in Europe an USA when production are moved to...

    Base model Taycan announced.

    I kind of dislike Porsche and their owner Volkswagen company have such focus and priority on China, especially these days. I find it rather disrespectful that other countries which have been their main customer for several decades, have to wait for the latest news and options. Heaven forbid...

    Ceramic coating noob questions

    I´ve had paint protection film mounted on my latest vehicles, due to haters seem to love scratching car with a key or whatever. I don't know what the idea or fun about damaging others property is, but that what the world has come to I guess. Sadly, this is in a way included part of the economics...

    Burmeister Audio Settings / Tuning

    I am an audiophile sound enthusiast, not an engineer, and I totally support your view Edmund: It all comes down to priority (and your wallet). First I went for the Bose regarding the total cost, mainly to please the economist I'm coincidentally married to - which system I must emphasizeis is not...

    Taycan Turbo vs Turbo S Comparison Review - Better Than 911 Turbo S! [TheStraightPipes]

    Perhaps I'm just finding up vicarious motives to my self, justifying the missing air ventilation due to the electrical fuel door: But maybe there is a chance for that the vehicle will become less dirty around the door area, since airstream from the wheels are blocked. At least that would be...

    Taycan Turbo vs Turbo S Comparison Review - Better Than 911 Turbo S! [TheStraightPipes]

    I think the electrical fuel door is rather cool actually, despite the lack of real ventilation system through the wheel arch. Also, in my area there are too many haters which would love to brake off the manuell charging door, obviously when open. All in all, it ain´t so bad after all. Still, I...
