    My CT Turbo has arrived!

    I have the Atacama beige leather and haven't noticed any stains after 13,000 miles. I've had many friends drive my Taycan, borrow it for the weekend, take it to the track, etc. without regard for what they were wearing. My detailer applied Gyeon leather treatment when the car was new, but...

    Battery learning

    To add to @W1NGE's excellent points, the Good to Know app states that recuperative braking is disabled "briefly" (some say a few hundred km? -- can't find a reference) in new Taycans, and again when brake pads are replaced. Without recuperative braking your range may be significantly reduced...

    appointment 2 months out

    Wow, that is a long wait for recall service. I can somewhat understand the lack of loaners given the extraordinary car shortage in the U.S. For what it's worth, one of those recalls is probably the "fake recall" that disables the smart hazard light functionality because U.S. regulations have not...

    Leave car for 2 Months

    The AMB5/AMB6 software updates released around May 2021 seems to have nearly eliminated 12V battery drain issues, or at least people posting about them on this forum. There was also an issue where the Porsche Mobile Charger Connect power line communication feature (PLC) would drain the 12V...

    Hi, there's a very extensive thread on this topic. I'd suggest continuing the discussion there so all the prior accumulated "wisdom of the crowd" is maintained.

    How do you request a text alert? Is that from the app on your phone, or from the charging station itself?

    Please critique my build :)

    I've ridden in the rear middle seat of my Taycan a couple of times with four other adults in the car, and it's tight, but not uncomfortable for short trips. I'm 6.0 foot/1.83 meters tall for comparison. Also, the 4+1 (or ski package) option provides a pass-through access to the trunk that is not...

    Build Questions/Critiques

    Welcome to the forums. Why not view and try out the options before your lock date? If you're in NoVA I can arrange a meet-up with a few Taycan owners with various specifications.

    Trip Report: Los Angeles (Beverly Hills) to SF Bay Area (San Mateo)

    I fear your are correct. Note that fast charging EVs can also cause problems for slow charging EVs. I violated charger etiquette several times in my Taycan by taking the only DC fast charger that had both CCS and CHAdeMO connectors, when CCS-only chargers were available. The next time I used...

    My SiriusXM subscription was updated....repeatedly

    I equate Sirius radio with having a sharp stick poked in the eye, because hearing idiots talk while I'm driving is a fate worse than death. Yet I'm frequently getting those Sirius non-subscription update notifications that must be acknowledged to regain control of the user interface. If Sirius...

    Recall Re-code airbag control unit: Any issues?

    Here are some of the prior threads on this topic. Although the recall title contains the word "airbag", it really is a reprogramming of the hazard lights to disable the (safer) way they function in the rest of the world to comply with the behind-the-times U.S. regulations. Personally I am...
