    Glovis Supreme left Emden

    I'm showing the same dates for Benicia and dealer (although you can't get any closer than Porsche Walnut Creek). Originally, car was going to make it by year's end so I think Porsche will probably pick up the cost difference. 🤣

    Glovis Supreme left Emden

    Are you showing 12/10 out of Emden on TYD? Car got to Emden on 11/16. If I'm on the Glovis Supreme, it's going to make missing the end of the year deadline that much more frustrating. Original schedule showed Glovis Supreme through the canal with first stop San Diego. Then it was changed to...

    December 2021 Delivery

    Anyone have access to the current December sailings? My car arrived Emden 11/16 and is scheduled to depart on 12/10. I had faint hopes for the Glovis Supreme, but it now appears headed for Brunswick and not direct to the US West Coast. As an operator of air vehicles and not sea vehicles, I find...

    Yea or nay on the Thermally and Noise Insulating Glass

    The weight of the battery way down low makes such things almost irrelevant. The carbon fiber roof on the RS e-tron GT is a joke… except that it looks awesome!

    Yea or nay on the Thermally and Noise Insulating Glass

    My CT4 will have the option. It was never a question; IMO, the lack of mechanical noise in an EV makes it a requirement. I'm currently 2.5 years into driving an e-tron with noise insulated glass. The standard glass cars I test drove and have had as loaners, while acceptably quiet, don't...

    Options more expensive than the $460 400V/150 kW charging option…honestly wow…

    I see your checkins on PlugShare. The MRY Airport chargers appear to be ChargePoint Express 250 units capable of delivering up to 1000 Volts. These units were evidently installed in September, so not legacy. What are you basing your 400V assertion on? I'd be curious as to what the data plate...

    Options more expensive than the $460 400V/150 kW charging option…honestly wow…

    Should Porsche Taycan buyers pay for the 150 kW “DC charger” option?

    December 2021 Delivery

    After my CT4 delivery was moved back to January, I'm pleasantly surprised that my car reached Emden on 11/16. Hoping that Glovis Supreme is a possibility, but don't want to get my hopes up. TYD still showing 12/10 ship out of Emden. We will see.

    Spoiler Colour

    Now that the GTS is released, I'm thinking we know the reason for the configurator issues. Body colored spoiler and seatbelts in red for the outboard passengers are both in evidence.

    Anyone considering move to Lucid Air?

    I am absolutely considering the Lucid and keeping my early reservation open! Unfortunately, the Touring is all I can justify and I think that'll be a ways out. Plenty of time to evaluate quality and charge performance.

    RBR - Delivery of 4S Cross Turismo

    Pretty restrained spec with great shots of the standard interior:

    Standard interior

    Probably represents cloth and/or nappy carpet like material (such as lines the trunk).

    Someone posted this, but I can't find the OP. Standard versus leather interior:

    Deposit placed for RS E-Tron GT

    I was in Mayfair, London this weekend. The thing that sticks in my mind wasn't the three Taycan Cross Turismos I spotted, but the lone RS e-tron GT parked on a side street. The GT has real presence "in the flesh". Elegant and aggressive at the same time. Gorgeous! No regrets, but it really is...

    Deposit placed for RS E-Tron GT

    e-tron more of a grand tourer, which is what I want. Steering not as sharp, but fine. My feeling is that the e-tron would be more comfortable on a long road trip. Says the guy who couldn't say no to the 21" Cross Turismo wheels. :rolleyes: I like the styling of the e-tron more (especially now...

    Roof Box and reduction of range

    So buy a roof box and slow down! 70 instead of 85 might make the increased drag more manageable. We're going on vacation, right? 😁

    Deposit placed for RS E-Tron GT

    Mr Smith, Congrats! My e-tron GT order would have been delivering now. I went back and forth between the two. If I were in the market for e-tron GT or Taycan sedan, I would have gone with the e-tron GT, 100%. I chose the Taycan for the practicality offered by the Cross Turismo and the value...

    Ice Grey CT received!

    You have great taste and a stunning CT! Mine starts production next week and is almost identical (but for the addition of black roof rails). Are your wheels metallic, gloss, or satin black? I was worried about the black calipers, but they seem to work well with the wheels.

    Taycan Cross Turismo 4 (CT4) Gets 251.7 Miles in Range Test by InsideEVs

    That’s a good point. How fast can the Taycan go backwards? Road trip!! ;)
