    Members Say Hello Here!

    So in general you are correct. Side-by-side the lease is a bit more expensive, but I've found it usually not to be much more (couple of thou....). So since no one likes throwing away cash, why do I lease? The answer has two parts - 1) I really want to upgrade my EV every 3 years. The...

    Members Say Hello Here!

    Can you explain more about the $5,000 below MSRP? First I've heard of that type of discount. Personal experience is that this is the best car I've ever owned, and if your experience is like mine you'll be very happy. I love the high tech; I can tolerate the occasional SW glitches, and overall...

    New EV Charging Cable potential to charge as fast as filling an ICE tank!

    I loved both the articles and the video. No question that the future is looking brighter for EVs. Still, a massive infrastructure investment will be required before this is everywhere. It would be great if some corporate groups (e.g., Starbucks) would step up to providing charging at all of...

    Maximizing Charging Speed at Fast Chargers

    Wow that sounds great! I think I’ll disable plug and charge and see if that helps.

    Maximizing Charging Speed at Fast Chargers

    After further searching I found this post from @louv that answers 90% of my questions. https://www.taycanforum.com/forum/threads/i-ask-and-answer-why-wont-my-taycan-charge-as-fast-as-i-want-it-to.779/ I'm still a bit puzzled as to why after using the Taycan Nav system to identify a charger 60...

    Maximizing Charging Speed at Fast Chargers

    I like the suggestion of disabling Plug & Charge to see if it behaves differently. I'll try that next time I charge and post the result. Curious if you are able to get better rate of charge on your Taycan at a DC charging site, and what rate you get?

    Maximizing Charging Speed at Fast Chargers

    On a recent trip to Portland, OR I was having problems getting over 80KW charging at an Electrify America fast charger. To set the stage a bit -- 2021 Taycan 4s with Plug & Charge enabled. "Battery-friendly Quick Charging" is not enabled. When charging at home on a L2 AC charger I limit the...

    Rumor of significant charging issue causing Taycan failures

    The "scrap the Taycan" problem is so obviously BS. There are no facts behind this tweet, and there is no hard data anywhere. Don't waste any more time chatting about this one...

    Poll: What is your age?

    As of 19-Oct-21 the Votes now show that 6.9% of us are 70 or older - not exactly a small demographic. I love my MY21 4s and am scheduling a session over 2 days at the LA Porsche Experience Center to compare the Taycan Turbo and the 911 Turbo S on the track. Whoo Hoo!

    How practical is Taycan as a daily driver for people in their 60s?

    I agree with all the points in this post. Let me add that the height position of the seat makes a difference to entry/exit. If you put the seat up higher, then when you twist yourself and put both feet on the ground, the stand-up action is a bit easier. The great headroom afforded by the...

    Porsche PCM Software Competency

    A recent thread on the Polestar 2 Recall has raised the question of how competent Porsche is at software development and I'm very curious what the rest of you think about this question. I've owned a 2020 4s and a 2021 4s. My personal opinion is that the initial Taycan 2020 PCM was not a car...

    All 2,200 Polestar 2 Delivered So Far Will Be Recalled

    I beg to differ. Writing an app like ABRP and developing the PCM software are entirely different types of software development and shouldn't be compared. The key difference is that the PCM software system is as complex as a computer operating system. and it's successful development requires...

    Silencing the Trunk Beeper

    Any chance you could ask them for the correct method to silence the speaker? I'd love to silence mine.

    Sun visor clip not covered by warrantee?

    Love the pictures! I've ordered two replacement clips from Suncoast Parts and hope to get them soon.

    Sun visor clip not covered by warrantee?

    Add me to the list of those who have broken off the visor clip fastener. First it broke on the passenger side, and as I was examining the driver's side to see how the clip worked, it broke off too :rolleyes: I called the dealer about repair and they said that these parts are not covered...
