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

    I only do about 1000 miles per year worth of trips that would require DCFC. Of those, probably 75% would already be coverd by EA 350Kw chargers. I do agree that the 400v option is relatively cheap insurance and I will probably spec it.... but honestly I wouldn't ditch any of my "minimally...
  2. 🏁 World Premiere: 2022 Taycan GTS Sedan and GTS Sport Turismo

    Yes I read that it will be available on all taycans
  3. Will Porsche address software issues

    I dont think there's a need to go to straight to Tesla just to get decent infotainment. Another middle ground (atleast for infotainment) would be Audi's system. I've always found Audi's infotainment to be pretty smooth and relatively bug free... In fact, I kinda wonder why Porsche bothers trying...
  4. Taycan Cross Turismo v. Macan EV

    Given the current vehicle shortage, I’m thinking that I’ll wait until around then to buy my next car anyway. By that point, I think we’ll likely see the facelift version of the Taycan around that point too so it’ll be interesting to see what they do with that. I kinda like the idea of a macan EV...
  5. A Taycan Charging at a Tesla Supercharger

    Won’t be as easy here - In Europe all the Tesla supercharger use CCS plugs
  6. Average household income really $900k?

    Also keep in mind that the taycan is currently the highest priced EV available so even if you are way wealthier than most Porsche owners the taycan is your only game in town
  7. Infrastructure Bill passed. I don’t think this is good.

    Yeah hard to know if Porsche woukd adjust the msrp if the tax credit goes away. Given the tight supply right now i doubt they’d have to. Eventually…I could see them having to make adjustments. Clearly, Porsche are still price sensitive given that they are afraid to raise the base price by even a...
  8. Taycan is now outselling the 911

    If the taycan doesn’t outsell the 911 I’d be concerned. It’s a more practical, slight less expensive car so logically you’d expect it to sell better (ev or not)
  9. 2020 Taycan 4S vs 2021 Ford Mach-e GT

    it does seem like Ford has done a great job launching the Mach-E. From what I've read, there arent many software or quality issues that have come up. I'd still prefer to get a Taycan CT, but then I look at the Mach-E GT and think do I really want to pay 40k+ more for the Porsche? In terns of...
  10. Pics of Cross Turismo next to Sedan?

    Despite being a huge CT fan, I have to admit that the sedan looks more elegant and sporty. I do think a lot of it has to do w/ the extra black cladding on the CT. Its an easy fix though (have it painted). I'd also opt to have the silver parts in gloss black. And, at the end of the day, it...
  11. Taycan GTS to be announced this year?

    haha- was watching a Macan GTS review the other day and they mentioned the same thing
  12. Is it possible for 3 Kids in the back seat (2 car seats + 1 booster)

    Yeah the ratio of its exterior dimensions to interior room has got to be one of the worst outside of 70s American personal luxury coupes and such. I think the Mini Clubman has similar interior room for example (though the mini probably has slightly more legroom). I don't know how porsche...
  13. Disaster! Spec missing the one thing I wanted. 🤦🏼😢🤣

    I recall reading an article that talked aobut how they created the electric sport sound. Apparently, it's based on recordings of Taycan's electric motors but turned up with certain frequencies enhanced. So.. atleast its not completely fake.
  14. Taycan GTS to be announced this year?

    I remember someone here posted a pic from the configurator a while back showing a GTS sport turismo (greyed out). Apparently, it briefly showed up in there by mistake. Not sure if that post got removed though (couldn't find it). Anyway, another datapoint (in addition to whats' been discussed...
  15. Taycan Cross Tourismo Review by OutofSpec

    Interesting spec- you dont usually see the roof rails, plus it has 20" wheels but carbon ceramic brakes.
  16. Taycan possibly no longer eligible for tax rebate under new proposal?

    Yep. My take on it is that manufacturers are very careful in how they price vehicles. If you don't believe me, look at Porsche's options list. They have decided to make folding mirrors a $300 option on an 85k+ car (so have determined that making it std and rasing the price by a few hundred would...
  17. Standard or Extended Leather Interior

    Generally I'm sure that's right. But Porsche FS in the US offers some pretty uncompetitive interest rates when it comes to leases. (currently, it's 4.8% or .0020 expressed as a money factor)
  18. Standard or Extended Leather Interior

    Ha was wondering the same thing. I guess a certain point it’s not just 4K more if you do that 5 or 6 times :) I see he’s in the UK so maybe it’s a company car and that’s a hard limit ?
  19. Anyone thought of buying a Panamera ST vs Taycan Cross Turismo?

    years ago, there were rumors that Porsche woukd make a midsize sport sedan based on the Audi MLB platform (ike the macan). Well they finally did - but as an EV on its own platform. +20k vs a 5 series sounds about right for the usual “Porsche tax”. Probably Would’ve been similarly priced had...
  20. Top to Bottom Review of the 2021 Taycan 4S (After 6 months ownership)

    Here's an article that describes how it works. Mentions that it uses a front-facing camera (which presumably is on all Taycans to allow this feature to work).
