  1. Bizarre 'whistleblower' claims “60% of all delivered Taycan have battery issues that caused replacements, damages and fires”

    As someone pointed earlier, and it is worth repeating, the author claimed repeatedly that you "MUST" do each of these things. And if you don't the warranty is whacked to 37.5k miles. to go from "if possible", "should", "is ideal" to "Must or your warranty is whacked" takes a special level...
  2. Bizarre 'whistleblower' claims “60% of all delivered Taycan have battery issues that caused replacements, damages and fires”

    the article is BS. it added the word “must” but if you look online, all those items are “if possible” “is ideal”, etc. there was a post detailing this on page 2 or 3 here.
  3. Bizarre 'whistleblower' claims “60% of all delivered Taycan have battery issues that caused replacements, damages and fires”

    Obvious answer to this. The 60% who are affected are way to busy putting the fires out in their Taycan so they don't have time to post here.
  4. Bizarre 'whistleblower' claims “60% of all delivered Taycan have battery issues that caused replacements, damages and fires”

    When an article shows up at the top of a Google search for "Taycan Battery", I believe a reasonable jury would say it had a negative impact. As for claiming damages, there are enough "experts" who could estimate a brand damage to at least get this to not be dismissed out of hand. Maybe rather...
  5. Bizarre 'whistleblower' claims “60% of all delivered Taycan have battery issues that caused replacements, damages and fires”

    The article claims that the battery is catching fire and, more significantly, that Porsche is committing fraud by changing out the battery and changing the serial number of the battery to the old battery so customer's don't know about the swap. That level of fraud is a serious allegation -...
  6. Bizarre 'whistleblower' claims “60% of all delivered Taycan have battery issues that caused replacements, damages and fires”

    Oddly, he doesn't say anything about whether he has a financial stake in Tesla - even though he mentions that Tesla was going to help Porsche and some other nonsense. Good reminder on that tweet. It went from a former employee to a current employee. wonder if it is the same person or he is...
  7. Bizarre 'whistleblower' claims “60% of all delivered Taycan have battery issues that caused replacements, damages and fires”

    for all of you naysayers who think that Alex didn’t do the right research… as i mentioned before i slow charge at home (charging overnight and so why not? li thought would be better for the battery) result? my car has burnt to the ground twice! once the day after thanksgiving and once...
  8. Bizarre 'whistleblower' claims “60% of all delivered Taycan have battery issues that caused replacements, damages and fires”

    they are specifically accusing Porsche of fraud by swapping out batteries and changing the serial numbers. (odd since i have no idea what my battery serial number is and wouldn’t care if they decided to give me a new one) that is a really serious charge. besides the one incident almost 2...
  9. Cannot charge at Electrify America right now?! WTF

    which update is this? i thought the update only was for 2021 model year?
  10. Please critique my build :)

    you want critique? ok. it needs more cowbell!
  11. Odd EA “error” with “fix” [message: The charging port cannot be unlocked. Please try again. error 236_GR_CM]

    I could be totally wrong here, but thought that was the recommended way to do it to get the free charging. I forgot the app I used to use, but I thought it changed to it saying to use the Connect App. Which app do you use?
  12. Trip Report: Los Angeles (Beverly Hills) to SF Bay Area (San Mateo)

    Meh. I would guess that EA has rolled out an equivalent number chargers than Tesla has in it's first years of operations, especially considering the relative volume of EVs that could take advantage of the fast charging. Let's not pretend that Tesla's first years of operations had huge number...
  13. Trip Report: Los Angeles (Beverly Hills) to SF Bay Area (San Mateo)

    My point was that if you have to wait 30 minutes to even start a charge, it isn't objectively better in that case.
  14. Trip Report: Los Angeles (Beverly Hills) to SF Bay Area (San Mateo)

    Yeah, the point I was trying to make is that with all of their investment and perfection and awesomeness people were waiting half an hour for a charge on a Friday at noon. When they sell 50% more every year and have a million cyber trucks on the road, their investment or approach will need to...
  15. Trip Report: Los Angeles (Beverly Hills) to SF Bay Area (San Mateo)

    I fear the same. There were two 350 chargers where I parked at Harris Ranch. One was occupied by a BMW i3. I didn't want to mention to them that they can use one of the many 150s and get the same result since I was fine with having a 350, and would have been fine even using a 150. But I had...
  16. Odd EA “error” with “fix” [message: The charging port cannot be unlocked. Please try again. error 236_GR_CM]

    It is unclear if this is an EA "feature" or the Porsche app "feature". EA could have reported the correct info to the Porsche app (since the charging worked) but Porsche could have reported it incorrectly...or not.
  17. Odd EA “error” with “fix” [message: The charging port cannot be unlocked. Please try again. error 236_GR_CM]

    i tried charging at a 350 EA charger and got an error in the Porsche connect app i unplugged and tried again. same. I tried again and got the same error. here is the “fix”. i kept the car plugged in since i was going to call EA, then the charging process started anyway in the normal...
  18. LCA not working - service required

    i was straight forward with my dealer and told them what happened, so it was only fair that they would charge me since a tech did have to do work. they did lower the cost quite a bit though. apparently it is a reprogramming thing. as an aside, i believe there was a way to avoid this issue...
  19. Porsche (or PCNA) deleted my car and my account, and customer support is worthless. How do I fix this?

    based on their post, i think the best thing for them to do is sell it, never buy another Porsche and only buy a product that has no issues that would prevent them from driving the car. i mean it isn’t as if with those issues, they could even drive the car, much less appreciate the driving...
