  1. My CT Turbo has arrived!

    I have Ivory in my iPace which was part of the FE spec I switched to last min at the time. I’ve enjoyed the lightness off the cabin and goes well with ambient lights. Not noticed any colour bleed though had the seats protected a few times. That being said, even though I’ve not had colour bleed...
  2. Innodrive has new Tesla type behavior and graphics

    Pretty sure its the same, so long as you have all the pre-requisite hardware options (which I assume you have given its shown as an option). Intending to do the same thing, I'll trial it and then see if think its worth subscribing (or just subscribe on long road trip months). Better than paying...
  3. Bizarre 'whistleblower' claims “60% of all delivered Taycan have battery issues that caused replacements, damages and fires”

    On that topic (probably should take off back to the original thread). @tigerbalm , did you get anything from OPC given you are one who has had the charger before the new guidance. Think those who have it may actually be in a better position to get a wtf response :)
  4. Bizarre 'whistleblower' claims “60% of all delivered Taycan have battery issues that caused replacements, damages and fires”

    Most are barring the 🛎️🔚 going on about checking out these forums and painting it as everyone in full denial mode and misrepresenting the responses to Wawa....
  5. Carmine Red Turbo Cross Turismo - two weeks into ownership

    Wonder if that might change with the GTS being saturated all over the press in Carmine? I do like it, currently on Gentian with a possibility of Mamba but another 8 weeks to also flip flop to Carmine...
  6. Bizarre 'whistleblower' claims “60% of all delivered Taycan have battery issues that caused replacements, damages and fires”

    Agreed. Given Porsche have just updated guidance on the 22kW option to charge at 6kW on single phase to protect the charger lifetime they clearly don’t see lower rates of charge as any issue at all for the cells. (sure they’d rather replace a charger than a battery pack if it were the opposite...
  7. Bizarre 'whistleblower' claims “60% of all delivered Taycan have battery issues that caused replacements, damages and fires”

    Why not, in my case 22kW on the move is far more valuable than losing rate at home by switching to 24A. I’m never ever charge constrained at home. Being able to fill the car in half a day at a destination charger, or get a decent charge over lunch when no DC is available (i.e. anywhere off main...
  8. 22kw upgrade concern appearing on porsche car configurator.

    I'll just have my home charger limited to 24A (long term likely to move and will get 3-phase at that point) as my journey profile is mainly long trips and charging at home isn't something I find limiting (also about 0.5 miles from an OPC 350kW...) Not an electrical engineer but am interested...
  9. 22kw upgrade concern appearing on porsche car configurator.

    Oh man you've sussed it, its @tigerbalm 's fault 😂
  10. 22kw upgrade concern appearing on porsche car configurator.

    Can see you have a wide and varied selection of vehicles (nice) so different for you. This will be my only car and a 4 year “treat” before back to stuffing the mattress so plan a lot of road trips. Simply want maximum charging flexibility away from main routes and also expect a lot of DC charger...
  11. 22kw upgrade concern appearing on porsche car configurator.

    Yeah, not that hopeful but will see. Perhaps @tigerbalm may have some luck given they've only just pointed this out well after he bought his. If AndersenEV come back and re-enable user selection of charge rate then I'll stick with the 22kW option. Charging it home isn't much of an issue for me...
  12. 22kw upgrade concern appearing on porsche car configurator.

    I've mailed contact Porsche and copied my dealer, not holding my breath but worth a try. Its an option I'd really like to keep for many of the same reasons as yourself and I don't agree with the everything will be DC argument. 22kW is so much cheaper and easier to add in rural and remote areas...
  13. 22kw upgrade concern appearing on porsche car configurator.

    Hmm, interesting. Also have the 22kW added for destination benefits and road trips off the beaten track. I've only got single phase at home at present, but certainly don't charge every day. Would be more useful to understand what frequency of 7.4kW charging they are talking about. Can we limit...
  14. 22 kWh onboard charger

    Being fair I don't think there are that many 400V limited DC >50kW chargers left in Europe (leaving Tesla out if it for one second) are there? Now I was always going to add the 150kW to my build on the possibility of Tesla opening up and of course now that is all but confirmed you'd be mad not...
  15. Is the Taycan really exceeding EPA rating?

    That's very good. Looking at my ipace for the Year (lockdowns and only recently customers opening up for face to face) then for about 5k miles my average is 41.2kWh/100 miles. This month is getting cooler (it was 2C/35F for most of my journey yesterday) and my last 750 miles was up to...
  16. So who's changing their order to the GTS Sport Turismo?

    Hi Mr B, agreed a little the same for me but still prefer the CT look (GTS looks a little boy racer for my taste, more suited to an Audi..) and I want the extra practicality (showing I'm definitely no longer a boy racer haha). Ref your car, whats your view on the off-road pack. Looks wise I...
  17. So who's changing their order to the GTS Sport Turismo?

    With you, as nice as the lower ride height looks in the pictures I just have to remind myself …uk roads, uk speed bumps…ride height..something not paint to rub on narrow roads… plans to drive to Alps in winter and lots of trips to the Highlands. Plus that fabric….not to my personal taste. Will...
  18. Video review showing Blackberry interior, which I love but the reviewer doesn't!

    Current build (if don’t change again before lock..) is Gentian with the Bordeaux (red) seats for a little less “washbag”. Assuming you’ve seen them in the flesh but my test drive was in a black car with the bordeaux, they are way more understated than most photos show them (they seem to...
  19. New Taycan models launching at LA Auto Show on Nov 17! -- Sport Turismo and/or GTS?

    Maybe they'll have an initial tranche of GTS allocations for quicker delivery...but having ordered a 4S, then flipped to a Turbo order then don't think I'll flip back. As for the Cross Tourismo styling and extra normal ride height, I'm one of those who likes the look and also the practicality...
  20. tires degradation

    Interesting on the breaking in, anything on this from Porsche? I'm guessing most will get their new Taycan and immediately launch it...(Porsche experience day may help reduce that initial urge). A very different car but still 2.2 tonnes, my current iPace is still going strong on 20,000 miles...
