  1. Taycan is now outselling the 911

    I am not sure it is less expensive, probably pretty on par with most 911 variants in pricing.
  2. Taycan is now outselling the 911

    So I went to a dealer Porsche sponsored event locally last week, where they showed off the RWD Taycan, the Panamera 4S, the Macau 4S and the 911 4S (all current year). Various courses, various drives. In addition to the Taycan I own a 718 Spyder. I have to tell you the most connected and fun car...
  3. I am watching the “sh*t show” that EA is live and in person

    This has been my experience with EA for two years, including at their frickin actual headquarters building in VA. I mean that says something. It’s all lip service and no actual commitment to a reliable network. I’ve had brand new big locations not work for WEEKS after I reported them and called...

    one word? Either Ick! or Ouch!
  5. 2021 Taycan software update experience

    Most of us have had great service experiences. Can you give us any more detail about when you bought your car, what happened, why is it stuck at dealer, which dealer?
  6. Tesla admits FSD is a pipe dream

    how can it be easily fooled, specially with IR sensors?
  7. Tesla admits FSD is a pipe dream

    except you said it yourself. Other manufacturers implement robust monitoring to force the driver to lay attention, while Tesla almost purposefully makes it trivial to NOT pay attention and calls it “autopilot.” Its a sick game of wink and nudge but played with the lives of others. Just to look cool.
  8. LED Matrix, worth the cost ?

    Keep in mind in the US out matrix headlights are crippled. They are locked at high/low beam only which defeats the entire ability to project high beam directed lights without blinding oncoming traffic. That’s where the Matrix lights would shine.
  9. Scared to ask... anyone tempted by Model S Plaid?

    Now THIS car I am tempted by!
  10. Direct charging mode stays on until you turn it off again?

    completely with you there, didn’t mean to make it sound that bad. My motto is use it when you need it, that’s why it’s there!
  11. 📣 Official Release: 2022 Porsche Taycan Upgrades & New Colors

    Well faster charging is vague, I think it would have been more specific if “faster” meant noticeable!
  12. 📣 Official Release: 2022 Porsche Taycan Upgrades & New Colors

    while there is some logic to this, and this was HIGHLY advisable in the early days, the rate of change has slowed a great deal. Yes there are minor tweaks but honestly I would guess small temperature changes or under inflated tires may have more impact. not sure leasing unless you get a great...
  13. Direct charging mode stays on until you turn it off again?

    actually generally speaking ten cycles of 60 to 70% would be the same as one cycle. There are additional strains when charging up to 100% and draining down to empty but for aging cycle count the two are the same. Obviously shallow charges avoid the additional aging effects.
  14. Certifiably Insane YOLO Turbo S Configuration - Ordered This Week

    wait! My early 2020 version just throws lights without a lens or branding! not sure what I think of that….
  15. Direct charging mode stays on until you turn it off again?

    You were not imagining it, there is more power in the high SOC ranges.
  16. Direct charging mode stays on until you turn it off again?

    Yes that is a good point to emphasize its not a “one time” setting. You probably lost no capacity that you will notice, the charge to 100% is not a one time care item, it is something that if you did constantly for years you would notice. Its a longevity issue.
  17. Have Porsche got the regen strategy (one pedal driving) right?

    i3 had no ability to turn off heavy Regen and this was an issue. One of the many reasons I didn’t like the drive was that in snow I had a RWD car that would engage regen breaking when I lifted my foot. This was a problem in snow/ice and I had to very carefully kept the pedal in near neutral to...
  18. Have Porsche got the regen strategy (one pedal driving) right?

    We need a third choice: both methods implemented correctly are fine. What I mean is most of my EVs have great one pedal driving, some have a blend, and the Taycan does not. Initially I was a little taken aback, but I have now grown to understand the reason why the Taycan does it the way it does...
  19. Scared to ask... anyone tempted by Model S Plaid?

    General comment about ANC (not Tesla in particular): its a cool technology, but it ain’t magic. Its pumping energy into a cabin trying to exactly cancel another wave of energy. It is never perfect, can’t work broadly in space and may not be worth it. Its a little bit like that great like from...
  20. Apple Music Announces Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos

    This is true. I can not emphasis ENOUGH how bad sattelite radio has been for years. Between a very low bit rate and older encoding it is not even good enough for speech, much less audio. And I am not saying this as a pro. It is incredibly bad. It is so bad that if you pay attention anytime there...
