    Brilliant! Has anyone tried leaving this puppy hooked to the 12v posts in a Taycan (or any other EV for that matter)?
  2. Cheat sheet: How do I recover my Taycan if it dies because of the 12 volt problem…

    What’s the expression ? “Misery loves company!” Sorry to hear about your E-tron GT but in some ways relieved to realize our Taycan are not alone. You would think the combined engineering of Porsche and Audi would be able to get on top of such an infuriating issue for EV adopters. Also why on...
  3. Cheat sheet: How do I recover my Taycan if it dies because of the 12 volt problem…

    Reading Optimate webpage it seems that some of their models have what appears to be a BMS boost button. Would these models substitute for the GB40 and obviate the need to connect the units in series?
  4. Cheat sheet: How do I recover my Taycan if it dies because of the 12 volt problem…

    OK now I’m even more spooked given the TSB @chrisk alerted us to from Porsche! What do we do now? Carry a 10lb lead acid battery that can leak around in the back seat? I guess I’ll opt for the trickle charger to keep my $150k fun-mobile road-ready until Porsche gets it’s act together on this...
  5. Cheat sheet: How do I recover my Taycan if it dies because of the 12 volt problem…

    Just wanted to report a continuing 12V battery issue even after the latest software updates. My MY21 4S was not.in my home garage with 50% SOC an was not used for a week. It was not connected to the home charger and was locked. Suddenly dead one morning after never having had this problem...
  6. I don’t have surround view!

    Similarly was surprised to get delivery of MY21 4S with premium pkg only to find the 3D surround view option was limited to front and rear cameras. I’ve tried the trick published on the forum to get a quasi-walk around view but find it difficult to consistently activate and then not a smooth...

  11. 2021 Taycan software update experience

    Did anyone get charged for the MY21 software update? I just noticed on my appointment reminder that estimated charge of $308 for two sets of diagnostics! Given this and all the post update problems I’m hearing, I think I’ll wait and not spoil a perfectly functioned 4S right now for what...
  12. Radar / Laser Detectors with Sound Thermally Insulated Glass

    Looking at the various pictures of the windshields in this and other threads regarding the glass type, there seems to be a difference in the extent of the “speckled” area to the side of the headliner/mirror assembly. Some of the cars have a large speckled area, that extends beyond the assembly...

    Curious @Lowpue what fuse tap did you use?

  16. 3D Printed Removable Front Plate Mount for Taycan (Print Files Attached)

    Absolutely brilliant solution to a problem Porsche should have figured out. Thanks @evanevery! for all your hard work and sharing the ark files. I used PETG filament for the mounts and brackets so hopefully it will hold up well. Did anyone have any luck using the Loctite to avoid removing the...
  17. Stop Front License Plates & Use NEMA 6-50 Connectors for EVs

    Bravo @wmras on both counts!alas may be an uphill battle on front plates with legal requirement in many states. I was disappointed to see the NEMA 6-50 cable option was eliminated as option in the 2021 configuration when putting my build together.
