    LOL - My CT lost the North!

    I wish the compass was an option on the regular Taycan. It feels very "road-trip" friendly.

    For those awaiting delivery, my experience after my first week...

    They are currently all in on AWS and pretty vocally so. I'm not 100% convinced that Porsche is fully committed to the new VW Cloud initiative – though they have traditionally been a very Microsoft friendly shop. Will be interesting. What we seem to be seeing is multiple re-inventing of the...

    Only the Russian's are allowed do it – for some unknown reason.

    Carbon cost of Taycan production

    I'm not sure of the details you're requesting – but Porsche does have an active program called "Porsche Impact". It seems more orientated towards their petrol/diesel fuelled cars – but perhaps you could reach out to them and ask if they have a Taycan programme ...

    Apple Music: via PCM vs. CarPlay - what are the pros and cons?

    My thoughts on preferring wired/USB CarPlay over wireless CarPlay is that the iPhone uses a different audio codec depending on which connection is in use. From Apple[1] : When using wired its using liner pulse code modulation – a lossless codec, whereas when the connection is wireless CarPlay...

    Apple Music: via PCM vs. CarPlay - what are the pros and cons?

    Unless Porsche have special private APIs into Apple Music – and they might but I suspect they don't – then Apple Lossless audio files are not yet accessible via the public APIs that Apple have published. If true – and its an educated speculation on my part – then the audio source for the native...

    How best to play CD music in a 4S (Bose)?

    Correct. That is a characteristic of CarPlay. But also the PCM has the same limitation so it won't play beyond 48 kHZ either - even when reading files directly from USB-C. From manual on Good To Know app:

    Taycan outsold 911 (and Panamera and 718) in 2021

    "All-electric Cayenne and Panamera most likely will be the next step" Is there really room for an electric Panamera and Taycan ? Will Taycan ever really be "the small one" ?

    Recuperation / Friction Braking

    I do not believe so other than ragen is not used for the first few minutes after starting the car from cold. It only uses friction braking then until some heat is put into the rotors and probably to help clear any rust (depending on rotor construction) and water that may be on them. So if you...

    Coupe Anyone?

    FWIW, my sales guy thinks electric 718 first in 2023. He's not convinced they'll be any two door Taycan's. That was in response to my comment: "I'm mulling over a Taycan Turbo S – but what I really want is a shorter two door Taycan". What I really want is a two door tourer – which is what a...

    IONITY and plug-in charge

    I suggest you order the free Porsche Charging Service RFID card – for when you need to manually start a charger – it will be easier than the app. I never use the app to start a charger and I don't have Plug & Play due to have a MY21 22kWh charger installed.

    Rear Axle Steering - how to confirm it's installed / working?

    @Yorkshirepuds Can you confirm when you go into PCM -> Settings -> Car -> Additional chassis settings. Do you see an option for "Deactivate rear axle steering for using snow chains" ? As outlined in this post...
